Rapier Scenarios, Potrero War 2014


We need at least one additional marshal for every ten fighters on the field. Please think of marshalling at least one scenario if you can. Non-fighters are welcome to serve as border marshals, even if they are not warranted Marshals.

* Any volunteers interested in marshaling may report to Marshal's Point each day to check in.


Inspections are at the Marshal Point before fighting starts. Weapons must be inspected every day; Armor need not be inspected more than once at an event.
