Bhakail_fencing Yahoo group

Baronial Rapier Marshal
Don Melchior Kriebel

What's My Pirate Name?
Vaguely amusing quiz.

Billboard d'Escrime
One of a series of Verzon billboards, also vaguely amusing.

The Tadcaster Militia on
the Internet Movie Database
Do you have an IMDB page? We do. I'd wager we're one of a very few fencing households which does.

American Fencer's Supply
Santelli is no longer a going concern, but AFS has many of the same items at similar prices

Darkwood Armory

Beautiful work, very nice. Swords, daggers, and many other things.
Created Ian's tad-dagger.

James the Just
His custom hilts may take your breath away.
Also carries "off-the-rack" items, reasonable prices.
He's recently retired, but his apprentice is carrying on the sword business.

Zen Warrior (was Triplette)
Triplette's SCA-centric offerings; often expensive and cheesy, but the only source yet for Spectra undergarments

Gipsy Peddler
Later period fencing-legal cothing.
Make sure to note what items need shirts underneath, tho.

The SCA:
Society for Creative Anachronism
The "SCA" - the overall group we play in. Dedicated to researching and recreating the Middle Ages from 500 to 1650 ACE, but with less plague and more indoor plumbing.

Don Dylan's Fencing Page
Excellent source of much information, with links to EK rules, other kingdoms' rules, research on the London Masters, the Spanish Circle and punch testing armor, among other things.

The East Kingdom Rapier Combatant Compendium
A simply huge listing of the fencers of the East Kingdom and information about them. And marshals. And the OGRs. And the Rules.
A good place to look up that gentle who you fought at That Event in That Barony but didn't get their name but they were really cool and you want to look them up so you know who they are and WOW there's a lot of fencers out there! I like pie.

Well, he sorta came up in conversation.

Vacations in Vermont!
Lord, no...please, let us be out of Vermont...
Somehow, this site fails to encapsulate the horror we felt in being in that state. :)

Exclamation Marks!
Usually shows excitement. Or emotion. Could be replaced by a comma if the feeling's not as strong.
