Knights were (well, until they starting knighting merchants and such)
and are fighters. Fighters were not and are not necessarily knights. A
peasant militia man who kept his pike spotlessly clean and drilled
dilligently twice a month could certainly be called a fighter, but he
would not by any stretch of the imagination be called a knight.
>If so, then the !@#$%^&*() FUBAR SCA award system has screwed us yet
There are many things wrong with the SCA award system. There are also
many things right. If you have problems with it, how about making
suggestions on how to fix it, instead of cussing it. Remember that,
especially in this kingdom, if a person can convince a Crown that
something is wrong, the Crown can do something about it.
