I had an amazing opportunity on Saturday to witness something that I’m probably never going to see again in my life time. I belong to the Society of Creative Anachronism (SCA), a medieval recreation organization. You can find out more here.
The SCA recently added a new peerage to the society. A peerage is an award that is given to a member who has reached the highest level in service, armored combat, arts and sciences, and now rapier combat. Before this can happen, individuals are put on vigil. Being on vigil means that members of populace can give you advice and pick your brain.
During court at the end of the night, the King and Queen were able to place three individuals the opportunity to become premiere members of the Order of Defense, the rapier peerage. The three gentleman who where chosen by the Crown were very deserving men. I can’t wait to see what this peerage becomes.
