OK..here goes. To the best of my somewhat debilitated memory, prowess
refers to ones' skill. I believe the word you are thinking of is "prow".
Also, to the best of my swiss cheese memory, "Dame" is the feminine form
of address for a member of the Chivalry in the SCA, though some choose
to style themselves as "Sir". I believe "Domina" could refer to any
woman in latin.

Who, contrary to my most recent displays of fighting prowess, ain't dead
yet. Coming soon to an event near you.
how ever you chose to address a female fighter or for that matter a male
fighter, Do it with the same respect that you would want in return.

After all when your helm is on, and I am fighting you, It makes no difference
to me if you are male or female. I fight with the same effort towards both.
yours in service
