A legal rapier?

Recommended Posts

I stumbled upon a Reddit post that suggested that this rapier https://calimacil.com/collections/all-larp-swords/products/lys-rapier-bastard  would be legal to use as a thrusting weapon at Novitas. However, the melee weapon rules state: "Any weapon with a flexible component or which strikes primarily with a punching motion of the arm rather than a swinging motion is forbidden.

 

Are all thrusing weapons forbidden at Novitas? I'm hoping this rule is outdated, as the possibility of thrusting has really piqued my interest in this game. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.

Thrusting weapons are legal at Novitas, there are spears and swords that thrust.  The rule you are quoting has more to do with things like punch daggers.  We don't want someone attacking with a punching motion where if a person is in the wrong place they get actually punched.

Thanks for the speedy info, you'll likely see me at a future event.
