Re: On outlandish foreign customs

Mistress Brannwyn Ottersby, speaking of institutional Court Escorts
in the Outlands, says, in part:

Since anyone who already has an AoA has already trod the carpet,
perhaps it is the right to be unescorted (rather than the right
to bear weapons) in court that should be the special right of
Lords and Ladies.  Then the right to bear weapons in court could
be extended to everyone, or, contrariwise, restricted to those
who have received Grants or Patents of Arms.

Just a suggestion.
