This topic is not meant to start a fight, nor is it meant to be offensive. It turns out this is a very sensitive subject from both sides of the fence. Anyway, be it one on one heavy weapons or one on one fencing, if a man says NO I don't fight women, NO i don't fight girls, NO i don't fight females, should the woman be forced to accept no for an answer and simply walk away? ANSWER: Yes. Like it or not, but in every state in the US NO always means NO.

The beginning of a bright, spring day where the sun shines down on Smeewick is abruptly disturbed by the sounds of fighting. The once quiet town is being filled with the noise between two households with their fighting. The constant bickering has boiled over from mere words, to swords between the two households. Through the upcoming weeks both sides will be spreading words to their members to bolster their houses. So pay heed to the messengers that may come or to those that the may receive letters, for your household may be calling. Arm yourself to prepare for the battle ahead. Location:
