<<< Greetings Lord Mithgiladan,
I have asked questions and have found some of the information you just
provided. I am learning from the officers you provided now that I have kind
of have knowledge on how some things work. Thank you for the information as
I learned additional things that I did not know. >>>
I thought the original question was specifically on what characteristics were looked for in Peers, so I didn't answer. However, it looks like the questions might be more on the line of more general info for newcomers.
Newcomers might also wish to join the SCA-Newcomers list on Yahoo.com
Here are various files that both newcomers and those who have been in the Society for some time might find useful. These are in the NEWCOMERS section of the Florilegium. I encourage all new folks to take a look at this section and perhaps to then look at other sections in the Florilegium. I try to post there a lot of files on a wide variety of SCA and medieval subjects.
