	No, not insurance, as fighting is only a very small blip in that (and,
of your membership money, only about a dollar goes to pay insurance.)
The reason for insurance is, tada! events.  The insurance is needed for
any event, wether there is fighting or not (arguably the most dangerous
thing we do is feed each other for money...)

	As far as I have been able to learn, the only reason membership is
required to fight in Atlantia (and it is definately in the minority
among the kingdoms in requiring it) was because it made a past Kingdom
List Mistress's life easier.  Everything else appears to be
rationalization after the fact.
