All very true. When I ran 12th night last year, almost all my "muscle"
was fighters, heavy and light, and archers. I'm a fighter myself, and I
was running a completely non-combat event. My kitchen staff consisted of
artisans, with a couple fighters thrown in for color. As I recall, Sir
Morgan acted as herald for much of the event as well. So, fighters will
not only come to a non-fighting event, they will help make it happen.
