Re: Selecting Crowns -- Definitions

       Want to know something funny about what Corpora says?
       Unless Alfredo left something off, there's NOTHING in Corpora that 
       says that there can't be two, or three, or four Crown Lists, OR that 
       the "Combat" so specified has to be single combat tourney style.
Well, one of the Governing and Policy Decisions does rule out Rapier, and by 
implication another (aimed at waivers) implies that list combat is the stuff 
that regular marshals supervise...


(And I say this with my tongue so far up my cheek that it's in danger 
of sticking out an ear)

I would certainly NEVER try to interpret Corpora in any way other than 
by the letter of what it says, for fear of being caught in a 
misinterpretation.  If Corpora doesn't specifically say heavy fighting 
and does specifically exclude rapier, it doesn't exclude combat 
archery, or water pistols, or boffer weapons, or cow patties at ten 
paces, for that matter.  

I can just see the weapons forms listing now - sword and cow patty, 
water pistol and cow patty...boy, talk about mudslinging!
