Of late, there have been a number of new transitions for the office of Baron and
Baroness (B&B) in the landed Baronies of Ansteorra, and several more to come
this season. This job is probably the hardest office of the SCA, both for it's
length as well as it's depth.
Many years ago, as I met Baron Edwin FitzLloyd of the Steppes, along a pathway
at an event, I asked him how he was enjoying his retirement from Baron of
Steppes which he had vacated some few months before. After a pause, Edwin
astutely said "It is a pleasure that the opinions I give are from Edwin, rather
than the 'Baron of the Steppes'". Wisely said.
Some of you have held the post of B&B and may have many words of advice to a new
B&B. Many with years in the society, having supported your landed Baron and
Baroness, may also have words of advice. I've asked this question before on
this list and you can search the archives for responses, but I think it bears
What advice, suggestions or counsel would you give to a new Baron and Baroness
in order for them to find success in their new office?
Or to those considering applying for the honor of holding the office of Baron
