This is a concern for some. I, myself am concerned for others, but I
feel that my lord repesents me in such a true, honourable fashion and in
good judgement in his blow-calling. He is quite aware of how I feel
about him being a knight and that now he has more duty to make sure
others "fight clean"...

>In Most Humble and Sincere Service,
I don't live near-by to College Station, but I'd love to make a
side-trip, when visiting my lord, to talk this over with others over
dinner. I know that many of the other knights' ladies have quite strong
feelings on this issue and I'd hope to see the others there, too...
One thing I have left to say: Duke Baldar, of Trimaris, has been
quoted (in T.I., Summer AS XXIV, issue 91) as saying, "Murder and rape
are crimes of passion and can be forgiven, but not calling your blows is
a disease of the heart." I'm not EVEN going to go into my feelings of
rape... or murder; I think this was an extream example of how
passionately some fighters feel about blow-calling. His Grace would have
been more correct to say, "Murder and rape are diseases of the heart and
cannot be forgiven, but not calling your blows is a crime of passion."
Knights, new fighters, old fighters, squires... all of us fighters need
to be true at heart when fighting... no matter what passion clouds our
Allysyn, you don't need to hide in the closet on issues you feel this
stongly about. I, for one, respect people who speak their minds and
express independent thought. Timo will understand you... he feels the
same way as you do.
In Service to the Dream,
~Lady Vanora Villon de Paris~
