- Jan 24View SourceHi Ash,I get a little upset at times with SCA people, we have had so many bad experiences with some, but some good ones too. I guess that since we have played for almost a quarter of a century and seen fighter training get very lax, I get defensive too.I am a teddy bear too, love to hug! Also I'm a bit on the small side, all of 5 feet tall and little.... sometimes the "bear" sized men like to pick me up and spin me around!!! Now that is fun!All my best,Dame ArianaLife is not a bowl of cherries or peaches...It's more like a jar of jalapenos...What you do today may burn your ass tomorrow!

Oh no insult taken. I'm not an ancient Adrian, but an avid cross player. Trust me I've been on the receiving side of a hard suit injury many times. Check out battle of nations, it makes my knees and shoulder hurt just watching them.I do get a little defensive when folks bash the SCA from time to time. Sorry if I came off rude or abrupt. I promise I'm a teddy bear.Sincerely,Ash

In the beginning the fighters were trained to pull their shots. That has fallen by the way side sadly.I was not throwing stones, I was stating my opinion from what I have witnessed at SCA events.Dame Ariana le TresonLife is not a bowl of cherries or peaches...It's more like a jar of jalapenos...What you do today may burn your ass tomorrow!

SCA isn't full power either. Complain about Battle of Nations of you want to throw stones at full power groups.

...boo...My concern here is that armor is not one size fits most, much less all.Those who remember my qualifying for steel, I had to build 'Monstro' first.A 500+ pound man cannot find an equal.Squires often still need to heavily adjust their Knight's "extra" armor, even when they are close in size. The Kingdom/Empire will have very little escape of liability if the pieces are presented as chattle goods. The pieces need servicing, fitting, and safety verified. "Cobbling" a suit out of loaner parts will add a greater burden on the Marshalate to insure the safety of the "borrower" and safety of the other combatants.Ask this...."Do I have the ability to cover the costs of the possible injuries?" That is what we are asking the marshals, Kingdom, and Empire.My Shillings,Sir Cu
