Greetings to the armored combatants of the Known World
Due to ongoing safety concerns, Mandrake-style rubber thrusting tips will NOT be allowed on fiberglass shafted spears at Pennsic War 44 (2015). Foam tips ≥ 2”, both commercial and homemade, will be allowed. This ruling does not impact Mandrake-style rubber tips on rattan weapons.
Please spread this announcement as you see fit to assure that all who might be impacted will have time to re-build their weapons before War.
Earl Marshal, Middle Kingdom
Marshal In Charge, Pennsic 44
