The history of mankind has been influenced by men
of religion, philosophy, politics, the sciences and the arts... but
it has been determined by the man of the sword.. from the primitive caveman's
crude stone ax to our modern computerized weaponry.
In the absence of actual warfare, medieval men-at-arms maintained their
fighting skills by constant practice. Tournaments afforded knights the opportunity
to display their fighting prowess to an admiring public. Private quarrels,
affairs of honor, matters of state (when open warfare proved too expensive
or inconvenient), criminal charges or accusations of high treason might be
settled by force of arms... under the guise of a "Judgement of God."
The M.S.R. reproduces the military arts of the Middle Ages in the forms
of Armored Combat, Jousting,
Fencing and Archery.
In Acre, we have several offices to regulate the Military Arts. The Constable oversees all military arts in
Acre. The Marshall oversees the heavy weapon combat, the Director
of the Joust oversees the joust, The
Captain of Fence oversees Fencing, and
the Captain of Archery oversees all aspects of archery.
