We all seem to agree that the standard SCA language stinks. Let's start 
using these terms and see if we can get them to catch on. Any other 
suggestions for better words?

I would like to suggest:

Fencing instead of light weapons
car instead of dragon
(yes, these are period terms used in a period way)

Anybody got a suggestion for _heavy weapons_ or _autocrat_?

I prefer rapier and armored combat to fencing/light combat and
heavy combat.

I think "fencing" is a post-1600 term.
