Hi, The Green Knight shows up at King Arthur's round table. The knights are feasting and the Green Knight has a proposition. The King can't decline a challenge. Part or the Arthurian Code of Chivalry involves not being a sissy pants. The code also requires a knight to step up to the plate and not make his king fight. So Sir Gawain does step up. The rest of the poem plays out testing this Code of Chivalry. Gawain goes to the Green Knight's castle. He doesn't jump into the sheets with his wife and even kisses the Green Knight as the lady had kissed him, hot! Gawain does lie about wearing his girdle though which is a little bit of a shame but really, can you blame the guy?

Oh I see number #2 here.

Fellowship is part of what Arthur's Knights enjoyed. They had each others backs, ate together, laughed and cried...I'm not to sure what you mean by "kindred and Goods". Perhaps if you specify, I can help.
