Is this AoA "fighting award" going to be an armored/chiv fighting award, or is it going to be an AoA level award for any martial activity (chiv, rapier, equestrian, archery, thrown weapons, seige engineering)?  I ask, because the Sable Crane is a blanket service award, though there are various aspects of service, and the Sable Thistle can be given to a person multiple times for various arts & sciences.  If this award is going to be chiv-specific, I can see a few folks getting in arms about why rapier fighters (for example) don't get a similar award.

No. No new slew of awards. (At least from this Crown.) This establishes 
an AoA level fighting award (which the Sable Falcon is not though it has 
sometimes been used like one and sometimes used according to its original 
purpose). The Optio is equal in precedence to the Sable Crane, Sable 
Thistle, and Compass Rose.
