I agree. Noble apology, Cap'n... but one of those situations where the 
offending party obviously didn't know what was going on and had no right to 
be "offended". On another note, however... the mere existance of pirates in 
the SCA, particularly in Ansteorra, seems to offend some people. I've been 
working hard to educate people on the period-ness of our particular breed of 
persona, but some people who don't understand something and have no wish to 
learn just can't be educated.

So, from one Captain to another, I raise me glass and wish ye fair winds and 
safe passages in these treacherous waters ;)

Lord Duncan MacNamara
Captain of the Iron Lotus
