I don't know how many of you have heard of the Society for Creative Anachronism but my wife and I are really big into it. It's basically like reliving medieval history. There is something for everybody You can learn how to brew your own beer for instance, and they have competitions for who did they best. You can also heavy fight with armor, hit the archery range, throw weapons, and try rapier out. I have a Viking persona and apparently there a lot of those around but oh fucking well....
Anyway, I'm going to start learning rapier which is basically fencing, and from what I heard a lot of people within the SCA play dirty in other kingdoms. For example the breast plate of girl is a legal hit in rapier but I was specifically told not to do it because then you'd baically leave yourself open for your opponent to play dirty, and you'd probably get your ass kicked.
So I'm going to be learning rapier Sundays at 2pm Eastern. But after the practice is over if you need me to help with matches I should be free to do so.
This is correct. You also have to pick a persona from the 8th to the 16th century and then all that's left is matching garb. If you can sew you have a leg up on everybody else. Apparently the women love men who can sew. All the men sew their own stuff as far as the costuming goes. There are very talented people within.
Oh, and if you want meet girls and you're single hit up all the parties, lots of period dancing and alochol. At my first Gulf Wars while walking to the shower house my wife was like hey baby look at those tits and I turned around to see a red head who just put on her red bra after coming out of her tent to get ready. That year also got caught in mircro bursts from the tornado that hit. I got soaked and had to nail our tent back down. It was definitely telling me I was crazy enough to be there.
theres also heraldry for your device if you can pick something nobody else has

John Gable: Hey, Seth. I won't pretend to know what is going on but if you ever see this. I would just like to ask if you could at least grant access to the RP boards. I really like reading old RPs. They mean a lot to me. I put a lot of work into them.

John Gable: And there is a friend I have been wanting to show them to because they want to read them as well. So, it would mean a lot to me that, if you see this, you could open of the RP boards again just so I could see it. If it isn't any trouble.
