Greetings from Sir Richard!
Corun asked some good questions.
First the disclaimer: Each knight makes his recommendation
individually. Each knight has a different yardstick against which
candidates are measured. What follows is my yardstick.
I use the chinese restaurant menu paradigm. With soup you get eggroll.
Column A (Entrees): You have to be a deadly fighter. This means winning
significant tourney bouts against substantial competition including
other knights. If you never win any tourney fights against any knights
I won't ever think you're a knight.
Column B (Appetizers): You have to be making some contribution to the
kingdom in some endeavor that is not fighting related. This could be
service or making stuff. I personally put great store in candidates who
have autocratted successful events. And know something about some part
of the middle ages that has to do with your persona.
Column C (Soups): You have to act like a peer. Be courteous to the
people you despise. It's easy to be courteous to your friends. Avoid
all the negative behaviors.
Column D (Fortune Cookies): Leadership. Make the kingdom better by
leading groups of people in constructive endeavors.
By the way, B, C, and D apply to my opinions for all peerages. Just
modify A to fit the type of restaurant (peerage) you're interested in.
Yours in Service,
Duke Richard Fitzgilbert,
Earl Marshal of Atlantia
