Re: Fencing ban in Meridies

Poster: Scott Silvers/James of Westmorland <ssilvers@liberty.uc.wlu.edu>

	This is ridiculous.  Heavy fighting is just as dangerous as 
fencing.  There is just as much chance that a visor will pop open or a 
combat arrow will break and enter a grill as there is of serious fencing 
injury.  Heavy fighters are more likely to be injured in fact.  If 
there's a problem with faulty equipment, make the rules stricter.  As to the 
popularity, who cares?  There are 50 people who are 
interested in doing it, and maybe more who just haven't had a chance to 
authorize.  I have a bad feeling about what is going on with all this 
recent banning of fencing in the Knowne World.  Fencing is period.  
Accept it and let the people play.
