“I was a geek at school, but now I am a geek with a sword”

Dan Pearce is a self-proclaimed geek. He recently spoke with a reporter from the Daily Liberal in Dubbo, NSW, Australia, about his participation in the SCA where he says he is now "a geek with a sword."

In the article, Pearce speaks about the involvement of the King of Lochac who helped the fledgling group get started with heavy combat. “We have a King, and he came out to us about seven years ago,” he said. “He got us a trainer, and we made armour and went from there.”
