May I suggest not doing that until after someone finds that the King's
Champion of England or of some other place had armory associated with
the office? I suspect he didn't, but I don't know.
There's an SCA notion I find odd. The progression seems to be:
1. Activity X (for some value of X) is a Good Thing.
2. You get more of what you recognize and reward.
3. We should reward X.
4. The way to reward X is to register a title (often an order name,
even though it's not actually an order because they don't meet or
otherwise act as a corporate body) and a badge (using black and
gold and an Ansteorran widget) and design a special dangly
(different from the badge, of course, but still in black and gold
with an Ansteorran widget) and a scroll text that Sings! and is
Deeply Meaningful! and its own slot in the Order of Precedence
... and bugger any period examples shown.
I agree with points 1 thru 3. Point 4 has stuck us with lots of
twinkie names and armory, though at least in this case at least one
period kingdom (England) had a "King's Champion", so the name and
concept itself is a good idea.
