This a post from another list. I was wondering if Ansteorra has such a system:
> There is also Master at Arms which is for those of knightly mein and virtue
>who are unable to swear oath of allegiance to a crown.
> In Meridies there is also one Knight Bachelor (KbSCA) created as a
>compromise and to better reflect the Medieval usage of Knight Baronet (one
>owing fealty and service for peerage) and Knight Bachelor (one not owing such
> The major practical differences between the two are that the Knights
>(KSCA) wear Belt, Spurs and Chain and the Knight Bachelor (KbSCA) wears only
>Belt and Spurs.
> The other difference is that when the Peers of the Realm are called forth
>to swear fealty the Knights swear to the Crown of Meridies and the Knight
>Bachelor swears to the Kingdom of Meridies. Notice that there is Fealty
>sworn in both cases and that the Knight Bachelor in return for the honor of
>the peerage returns service to the Kingdom.
>Tirion, aka Sir Starhelm Warlocke KbSCA
