...any 3 active Knights that meet the criteria listed below may petition the GMoK to have that Knight's belt placed on the CoK agenda for the next meeting. A vote to suspend or remove a belt requires a 75% majority of active Knights (including absentee votes) to pass..



Is that any 3 active knights from the current kingdom of the subject knight? Or can any 3 knights from any kingdom be allowed to start up this witch hunt?

Can 3 non-knights get the witch hunt started as well?

This is a change to the EH COK bylaws. So You would use the definition of "active Knight" given there. So the 3 knights would have to be EH knights who meet the COK activity requirement.

And... sort of. This proposal will not allow 3 non knights to start the petition that it is establishing. But technically the althing can do anything. So if several active non knights managed to convince the monarch to allow the althing agenda item: "Let's get this witch hunt started." Then yes ... but that has always been the case.

I think it's a good idea because of 3 things on our corpora pg7 F.Champion #5
"c: Organizing battlegames on days when no pre-determined scenarios are scheduled
d: Running the Weaponmaster Tournament
e: Running the Relic Quests at Midreign and Coronation"

The person who is going to come up with good battle games may not be able to win in a tournament for the spot (perhaps there skill lies in group tactics or magic, or they've gotten to a point in their life when they can't fight anymore). The flip side of that is true as well, just cause you can win one on one doesn't mean that you'll be any good at running things.


First, I feel the need to point out that organizing tournaments and games is not the Champion's primary duty, nor are those things primarily done by the Champion. Per c), the Champion's job is to jump in when needed and make sure something happens. Running Weaponmaster and the Relic Quests are two things that the Champion is expected do do; neither requires the Champion to personally do anything other than delegate.

Second, the ability to win an election says only slightly more about someone's ability to run things than fighting in a tournament. It says more about someone with a proven track record, but less about someone new.

There is usually little or no reason to be concerned about a Champion's basic enthusiasm to do a good job, as long as the requirement to qualify as crown is in place. There are some reasons to consider electing a Champion. However, in the end, the Champion's duty is primarily ceremonial. By qualifying, the embody their commitment to the whole body of what we do in Amtgard. By winning the champion's tournament, they display excellence in arms. As the defender of the Crown, they demonstrate (ideally) loyalty, constancy, and attentiveness to duty. The Champion ideally might be something of a warrior-poet, but at the least, they should be a warrior.

If the Champion is less able to the ins-and-outs of running tournaments and such, they still have the Monarch and GM of Reeves to support them. The job of "running" a tournament basically consists of: checking the calendar, getting approval for the date, setting a time, and ensuring at least one reeve will be in attendance. The day of, you'll either need to make brackets or get someone to make them for you. It requires more attention to the job than it does any technical skill at organization.

Ultimately, the Champion's job is a holdover from our club's special admiration for martial valor and hard work, and for that reason, I would like the job to remain much as it is.

Sir Nevron, you're as eloquent with the truth as always. Thank you.

I'm short and to the point. While others are eloquent and long winded.

Both have their own place in the hearts and minds of the populace.
