vast Kingdom of Drachenwald. I am a relatively new member of the society,
and can only describe how we do things in the Old World. I have not met any
such behaviour from those around me, instead I have been met with the
highest regard right from the start. Some of my best friends are KSCA and
they really work hard to get new members to feel like home, and the ladies
are also wonderful and kind, regardless of rank or title. I can only hope
that you will meet the same respect from your group. If not, ask them to
contact me, so I can get them in touch with people that can teach RESPECT,
and that it works both ways. There is a saying "Noblesse Oblige", and it
means that those higher on the status scale need to show that they are
worthy of that rank.
Good luck in your contact with your group!

eat at one meal....no cooler. :-)
Yogurt also will do just fine for a few hours without refrigeration. The
active cultures in it are a natural preservative that crowds out other
