Are you a new fencer trying to get up to speed on how things work? Are you a transplanted fencer who is new to Atlantia? Are you a non-fencer confused by all the talk of Scholars, Provosts, and Sea Dragons? Well, my new article was written for all of you! I try to explain the culture and institutions of rapier in Atlantia including our awards and our guild scarfing system. Depending on feedback I may also do a University class version of the article. Please let me know what you think. Now, onto the article!
