RE: [E_Rapier] Appendix 1 Testing Standards For SCA Rapier Combat
- I think you should include the section on constructing the drop tester. If you go too far outside of the guidelines to create one, you end up with a test not much better than the foil test.

Under the current rules, as far as I can tell, it only states that the
armour has to be tested, but it does not say how it is supposed to be
tested. The rules were not changed back, it looks like we haven't included
any testing methodology. This is something I can fix. I would include
Appendix A from the Society rules, except for point D where it discusses the
broken foil, which is not a test we use in Ealdormere and all of our
paperwork refers specifically to drop testing. I would have to get this
change approved by Privy Council and the KEM but that shouldn't be an issue
considering we're just adding in the appendix from the society rules. I
could also include the section on constructing a drop tester.

I know when I was KRM I changed our rules so that the broken foil test
was not a valid test in Ealdormere, because the results can vary too
wildly depending on who is doing the test. I can't remember if any
KRM after me changed it back. Eyrny, Mateo, Albretcht, did you change
the official rules back to include the broken foil test?
I have the link a cursory check and it looks like it is identical to
the official rules appendix 1:
If so it is good to go, you just have to ignore the foil test comment
