Rapier combat simulates the duels and melees of the Rennaissance. Popularized by books and movies such as The Three Musketeers, rapier combat, as its name denotes, is fought primarily with simulated rapiers, though daggers and other swords are sometimes used. Perhaps not as iconic as armored combat, the rapier community in Atlantia is nonetheless large, active, and dedicated.
Marshals are safety officers in the Society, responsible for understanding the rules and regulations dealing with their particular martial activity and making sure that all such rules are followed. These rules include weapon and armor standards as well as what actions are and are not allowed on the field. If there is ever confusion about the rules, a marshal for that discipline is a good place to start asking questions.
