Chapter 48, The Buffet

In this episode, we discuss an SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) specific topic. During a knighting ceremony, the Sovereign performing the knighting delivers a buffet (pronounced with a hard “t”) as the last time the knight should take such a strike without answering (“Let this be the last blow you take unanswered”).

This episode was prompted by a recent knighting where the buffet resulted in much online discussion.
