Summer Sports Challenge

Sharpen your wits for the next event--

Swordplay or Defense

This one required a consultation with my resident expert in the arts martial, lord_branwyn. I did not want to use the term "fencing" because it refers to the modern sport which would have little practical application on the battlefields of MiddleEarth. During the Renaissance, the study of swordsmanship was called "the art of defense," so Lord B. suggested either defense or swordplay as more appropriate prompts. Annoyed fencers, feel free to cast your gauntlets in his general direction. :D
