Elfsea Monthly A&S Class Tomorrow - Metal Casting
I have been playing in this Society for almost 10 years. One of the
things I found appealing and very true to my heart is the concept of
knightly virtues. Most importantly, "The Truth."
In doing a very simple Google search of "knightly virtues" my endeavor
started with Chaucer, which lead to the following words that I have
Courage - To be truthful in the face of adversity.
Justice - With truth there will be justice.
Mercy - The truth is much more merciful than untruths and lies.
Generosity - The truth is generous to those who hold it in respect.
Faith - In a power greater than oneself, will honor the truth.
Nobility - Hold your head high with nobility in the presence of truth.
Hope - That others will be truthful with you.
These are the most well known 7 attributes of a knight. I feel we should
all strive for these.
I also found from

Missaglia, Husband, father, knight - and by grace of God - gentleman.
