Argh! Not another peerage to keep up with!
Seriously, though, I have enough problems with the fact that the SCA invented
3 forms of Peerages, a practice which is not Period. The idea of continuing
the abomination with an additional one just makes me want more to trash the
current system and go to a more Period practice. Let us either stay the
course with current, regrettable system or thrust a sword in its belly and
replace it with more accurate practice. But, let us not build upon a bad
foundation to create a worse mess.
