In the SCA a Master at Arms is a peer of the Order of Chivalry who does not swear fealty to the throne. The distribution between Knights and Masters-at-Arms is subject to quite a bit of regional variation, although in most Kingdoms, Knights greatly outnumber Masters.

Masters at arms wear a white baldric instead of a white belt and do not wear a chain of fealty.

The rank of Master at Arms was created in response to the very real concern that certain individuals were restricted from swearing oaths, either from personal conviction or because of religious belief.
