Domenico ... Please try to take a step back and look/understand the
bigger picture. Different Kingdoms play slightly different games, and
that is their right. Just like it is our right to ban the unpadded
polearms from our game.
Personally, I'm all for standardizing rules across the Kingdoms for the
point of simplicity and making less issues arise at Inter-Kingdom events.
However, we shouldn't just blatantly wish to impose how we want to play
the game upon everyone else.
If that was the case, then some Kingdoms would be trying to get us to
stop using padded polearms. Another Kingdom would want us to stop doing
all Rapier combat. And yet another would want us to make every
authorized fighter automatically an authorized Combat Archer.
Each kingdom has played their own game for quite a while now, and we
need to respect that, just as we expect them to respect our feelings.
