Greetings Ansteorran rapier fighters!

The barony of Bjornsborg is pleased to host this weekend's "Academy of 
Defense" - a showcase for the display of rapier skills and chivalry!

As I put these words to paper, Masters from the countries of England, 
France, Italy and Spain are traveling from the four corners of the 
world, bringing with them their hand -picked students.  In words both 
grand and eloquent, each of the four masters has informed me (and anyone 
else within earshot) that their particular style of rapier combat is by 
far vastly superior to any in the known world.  Furthermore, the four 
masters have challenged that they will prove their school's superiority 
by the deeds of their students and the skills of the masters themselves! 
 No doubt, this assembly of talent will prove most interesting and 

The marshal of this event reminds me that a variety of interesting 
scenarios await!  These include;


      In field challenges, Masters of each country will set up pairs
      within their field.


      During the Field vs. Field challenges, Masters will set up matches
      between their country and another. (Gulf War champion tourney style).


       Masters Challenge


      Training Scenarios are fun little ways of testing your ability of
      handling a rapier.


      The Grand Melee will pit the newly chosen Provosts against the
      rest of the field.

Yes, there is time to declare to one and all that your heart blazes with 
uncommon ferocity and you wish to be included in this display of rapier
