I wasn't aware that the oaths were private or secret anyway.  Usually the
oath is not shouted, because it is being given to the person standing right
in front of you.  Most knights oaths generally include pledges involving
life and lands, but the form varies quite a bit.  Usually the Crowns
response take the general form of accepting your oath and pledging back
good faith and leadership.  Often times my oath is not planed, I just speak
from my heart.  Usually it will involve some bit of showmanship relative to
the crown and myself.  Like when HRM Abd al-Mahdi Jamal ibn Hakim and I did
a separate oath because I couldn't (in good faith <BG>) as a crusader swear
his rather Moorish oath. :)  So I swore an oath of fealty on her Catholic
Majesties faith.
