This whole thing has been a shambles; first, the whole idea of a separate peerage was a long shot. Then, after proposing a peerage that would cover all non-rattan prowess, suddenly the archers and equestrians get left out of further discussion with no satisfactory explanation. Finally, after three years of this, the rapier community gets told 1) we aren't going to give you a separate peerage because you belong in the Chivalry and 2) we aren't going the make the changes necessary for you to be in the Chivalry. 

Eowyth, your message completely explains why so many people have been so badly hurt by how this was handled at every step of the way.
