On the kingdom level, you are probably right.
Also, in the larger baronies, the age limit isn't really a problem. However,
in many of the smaller groups, there are sometimes only a couple of fighters,
and also a couple of 16 & 17 yr old fighter wannabes. If this age were allowed
to just practice, it would help chivalric combat in these groups--even if they
weren't allowed on the list field until 18.
Mooneschadowe, just a few years back, had this situation. The teens lost
interest, since they weren't allowed to play with the really cool armor and
toys. Naturally, a good Knight Marshall can help, in either case.
