Master Andrixos Scores Big on "Millionaire"

Steven Boyd, known as Master Andrixos Seljukroctonis in the SCA, did very well in his recent appearance on the game show "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" Spoiler: If you have yet to watch your tape, please don't read further.

Master Andrixos, who hails from Fayetteville, Arkansas in the Kingdom of Calontir and is the owner of Calontir Trim, obviously enjoyed sparring with host Meredith Vieira, who ribbed him about his involvement in the SCA. Throughout the game, Vieira teased Drix about his need for a new minivan, his reliance on his cellphone and other modern conveniences not normally available to "medieval masters."

Andrixos answered most questions easily but was finally stopped at the $100,000 level by uncertainty over a question on Shakespeare: "What was the profession of the character in the Shakespeare play The Merchant of Venice who made the statement 'First we kill all the lawyers.'?" The answer? Butcher. Other questions such as the inventor with more than 1,000 patents (Edison) gave him little pause.

Congratulations to Master Andrixos on his successful appearance, and we hope he enjoys his new minivan.
