Unto the Rapier Combatants of the Known World does Warder THL Andrew Blackwood MacBaine the Purple, Royalty Liaison for the Company of the Bronze Rings, send greetings on this, the Ninth Day of June!

Today I bring tidings of gladness and joy from His Majesty, Pieter, King of the MidRealm, and also His Royal Whim, Decision and Decree:

Forthwith and for the duration of His Reign, for His own convenience, His Majesty Pieter will refer to the assembled Dons, OGREs, Provosts, Honorable Lady and Lordships, and Warders of the Known World as "Masters of Defence". He invites and entreats all others to do so as well.

Therefore, I am also pleased to convey from His Majesty to all the Masters of Defence of the Known World, His invitation to the Masters of Defence Meet and Beat, to be held on the Rapier Field at Pennic on Saturday, August 9th, at 10:00 am. All Masters of Defence are encouraged and requested to bring one student, ward, cadet or unassociated rapier combatant with them.

The purpose of this event is to allow His Majesty to become acquainted with more of the Masters of Defence of the Known World, as well as allow all Masters to greet each other, and showcase the skill, chivalry and honor of all Masters of Defence.
