Anonymous asked: That's awesome does a man at arms wear a belt or anything?

No. If something is worn as a token of service, it’s usually like a favor or insignia. Some don’t wear anything. Just what ever you agree on. My knight gave me a segment of his chain, a symbol of fealty to him.

Anonymous asked: How did you become a squire? Did you approach a knight or did anyone approach you.

Well, after I had found what I loved and wanted to do in the SCA, it went kinda naturally. I did get approached by a lot knights, and I spoke with a lot of knights about what they look for and expect from a potential squire. Along that time I had became friends with a knight and the house he belongs to. It was a natural mesh over time. He knew of my interest in becoming a squire and after discussing it he made me his man at arms. Since our house is by lineage only, we agreed on a maa relationship so we could learn how we clicked and that the household could get to know me. When a knight in our house takes a squire, it’s kind of a collective decision of the house. After our year and a day, we all talked about our relationship, and him and his lady decided to take me as their squire. It’s not a decision they or I took lightly, however it felt pretty natural, where I needed to be.

If you’re thinking about becoming a squire, talk to every knight you can, figure out how you mesh with them and their families. It’s an important relationship.

Camping this weekend was awesome. It was hot and the water was cool yesterday. This morning I woke up to a rainstorm. Cat napped until about 1130 in the rain, and cooked breakfast in the tent.
