How sweet! Except,
I never go to court. The King never would have caught me when I was new,
<<This is where many newcomers think the SCA is ignoring them - but
vast majority of times they are not being ignored at all - they
know you are new and need help if you don't tell them.>>
Depends who's on the throne here in Atenveldt. One of our former kings
made it a practice to call everyone who was at their first event up to the
front of court and introduce them to the populace. It was the usual three
questions: What's your name? Where are you from?, Are you having fun?
Thanks for coming, hope you enjoy yourself. And then on down the row the
king would go. Hard to feel unwelcomed when the king is introducing you to the
entire populace at court. I really like Atenveldt. We haven't had a real jerk
on the throne since I've been here. Of course seeing as I've seen marshals
pull fighters from crown list for rhino hiding, the jerks have a limited
chance of winning crown.
