After a conversation this weekend at Seawinds on the responsibilities and
privileges of the branch champions, I decided to post to the list to see
what thoughts were found there.

So, what does the kingdom think are the proper responsibilities and
privileges of a branch champion once they have been selected to represent a
kingdom/barony/shire for the next year??

Once they are selected, they often receive a really spiffy prize/s.   Well,
nothing comes free.
In the case of an armored or rapier, we've seen the usual responsibility of
having the champion stand behind the thrones of their 'patrons'.   What
responsibilities of the equestrian or archery champion?   An
honor/privilege would be to sit at the head table, which oft times includes
some special delicacies of feast not presented to the other feasters in the
hall, which can be rather nice.

For the bard or artisan, a responsibility may be to provide entertainment
or artistry as largess/gifts, respectively, for their new 'patrons'.
Again, an honor would be sitting at head table.

What say you all?
Perhaps the ideas presented here, will assist a first time champion to
really espouse the 'role of champion'.
