It's always good to see new members come in with an interest already figured
I assume you'd like to either build your persona around your rapier interest,
or incorporate it in some way. You'll probably want to start out by doing a
little research about the history of fencing, and then look at time periods
and regions that apply, and that you think you'd like to be a part of. You
can use this knowledge to build a name and a persona story.
If you attend local rapier practices, you should be able to talk to some of
the fencers there and get some good leads as to where to look for rapier
history. Once you've narrowed it down to a time and area, you can approach
your local group herald/pursuivant to help you with a name, and device (coat
of arms) if you wish to register it.
Hopefully this helps, and I'm sure the others on this list will add to my
