Hmm. I would have to say that, whatever reasons are given in any particular
discussion, the chance of a peerage for rapier combat is nil, so long as as
rapier combat is not an accepted part of our game in every kingdom. Personally,
I would love to see the rapier practiced in every kingdom in the Known World -
under a single standard, of course.
