    A new Challenge for the Iron Ring of Lochac has been played

    4 Dec 2018
    Maestro ibn Jelal has received and met a challenge for the Iron Ring of Lochac, by Christopher of the Red Shirt. You can find the account in his journal.

    Two Handed Swords Disallowed for Melee Combat

    28 Sep 2018

    Notice from the KRM

    Effective immediately: Two handed swords are not to be used in melees, war scenarios or any combat involving more than two (2) combatants until further notice.

    Several serious injuries occurred at Fields of steel involving two handed swords being used in war/melee scenarios. To manage this risk no two handed swords are to be used in rapier war/melee or any combat involving more than two combatants until further notice. 
    This measure is to provide opportunity to investigate the use of these weapons and to develop appropriate guidelines for use.
    I realise this may impact activities at this Spring war, however I ask your cooperation with this requirement to ensure our game is not placing our fencers in unnecessary risk.

    2. Update of the rules for permitted blades and the blade flexibility test to current Society rules.
    3. Update of mask/helm requirements and addition of new padding requirements as required by Society.
    4. Addition of the ability for Rapier Marshals in Charge to use Rapier Combatants to supervise combat.
    5. Prohibition against grasping opponents equipment in order to clarify the rules and close a possible gap.

    Please familiarise yourself with these changes.
