Aye, there was no insult meant... The rapier community likes to tease me 
because I was a heavy fighter, and the Chivalric community likes to tease me 
because I was a rapier fighter... and then some, like my Friend Cap'n 
Haddock, just like to tease me in general, lol.

And while I'm on the subject... I also meant no offence to anyone who can't 
offer their time in service or other areas the way that I have... I was 
referring to the people who don't usually even attempt a persona past a 
name, barely wear garb, and just show up to events for the parties after 

>Not a Capt of anything but a Sea Beggar none the less.

And just a clarification... Cap'n Haddock and I don't just claim to be 
Captains... we both have crews to go along with it.... My ship, for example, 
operates as a Household, and my Captaincy was granted to me by the former 
Matriarch of Black Company. I'm not sure of Cap'n Haddock's, but I am sure 
that his Captaincy wasn't taken out of arrogance.
