Agreed...! "Wind sprints" in armor come to mind... Passing attacks at

I do remember those days Your Majesty... Perhaps at Crown, You might 
wish to hold a Grand Tournament on Saturday where all that wish to vie 
for the Crown MUST fight. Then hold the Crown Lists early Sunday 
morning........ Ahhhhhh...memories....
