Re: [E_Rapier] Re: ealdormere-rapier Rules Version 4
- Is it just a matter of boycotting longer blades out of a personal
preference (or displeasure)? If so, then I would say that's a personal
choice to make that has no bearing on the actual rules. The penalties
should go with it. In this case, it's a choice to not fence an
opponent, therefore it's a choice to take the loss.

and I choose to yeild rather than fight from my knees I'm offering them the
win, rather than to keep fighting. It does not matter why you yeild,
choosing to yeild is choosing to lose.
To refuse to fence some due to safety is a different issue. If someone is
unsafe they should be removed from the field. If equipment is unsafe it
should be removed from the field. But that is obviously not the question
