Society Rules in Favor of Rapier Spears

Leave a comment

A new ruling by the Board of Directors was officially announced this morning by the Society Rapier Marshal:

Greetings. 

The BoD held their Q2 2014 board meeting on July 12 and discussed the April 12 ruling on this class of weapons. Below is a link to the final ruling which is now in effect:

Immediate impact of the ruling:

As of today, the use of weapons that fall into this category require a separate authorization to be used. If your kingdom does not have an authorization procedure already in place, they cannot be used at official practices or events in your kingdom. For the kingdoms that do have a system in place, you may once again use these weapons as long as your rules comply with the Society-level ones.

As one of the Kingdoms with an authorization procedure in place, Caid will look to the lead the way as an example of what how to handle these tools.
 
Have Fun and Be Safe!
