It is sad that in our Kingdom the road to Knighthood seems to be so difficult
and by the time they get to that position they have sacrificed so much in
other areas of their lives that they just burn. The Knights (and Crown)
seem to have set a standard of maturity (and/or "social skills") level
along with fighting ability far exceeding what it took for the majority
of the Circle to attain their peerage. And Gods forbid that anyone
be on the track of the ellusive bird.
