[Northkeep] Question for the rapier community

Guten Tag,


Apparently a "demonstration" of both rapier and cut-n-thrust combat is
going to be held at War of the Lilies this year.  Does anyone know who
is going to be doing this demo?   


I hope it goes well.  Unfortunately, some past attempts have done more
to harm the cause than help it.   I'd like to believe this instance will
go for the better.  Please keep that in mind.


Yes there is an entrenched anti-rapier community in Calontir but it's an
educated community. Gone is the "non-period" claim (as long as folks can
resist the post 1600 pirate garb temptation).   Don't go in to show them
where they're wrong.  Show them where they're missing out on a lot of
fun.  And show those who have much at risk in this cultural invasion
that this can fit into their game.  


Unfortunately my broken wrist is going to preclude Ismet and I being
there to help what little we could so I hope to hear stories from folks
coming back after having a great time.
