NationStates Fencing Interest/Discussion Thread

Postby Lisander » Wed Oct 10, 2018 8:37 pm

So, I keep thinking about this. Olympics are coming and I'm barely in the mood for it. Apart from Rugby and Basketball, I don't roleplay most of the Olympic sports. But fencing is something I always thought of RPing more carefully.

Okay, it may not reach most of you, but I've been thinking in start a fencing tournament, individual, by nations or even by teams composed by fencers from one or more nationalities, like in RL Cycling events.

Also, it could count points to individual, team and national rankings, like in RL Cycling, Tennis or Horse Polo.

So we would have, theoretically, three (or six) categories in mind, Team (and Individual) Foil, Épée and Sabre.

Does anyone else would be interested to participate in this?

I'm a big fan of alot of those Olympic Sports that do not have a sport for them on here or who do and just on hiatus ( ex. Archery and Water Polo)

And i am very excited for the Olympics.

So if this is something your passionate about. West Phoenicia would field players and teams.

That seems like a very interesting idea. I'd certainly be interested, though I'll admit that I'm not sure how much time I'll have to RP after the Cup of Harmony is over.

Elite Fencing League
  • Tournament disputed by teams, like road cycling.
  • Fencers in one team may be from different nations.
  • Format: A circuit of tournaments around the world, with independent formats (.
  • Fencers and Teams would be ranked separately (Data above are just arbitrary numbers):
    Foil Rankings - Individual
    1 Athos Ravardière (SAG) 41.200
    2 Stéphanie Montreaux (PAR) 39.800
    3 Daniele Spica (MIL) 36.770
    Foil Rankings - Team
    1 Confrerie Autrechienne (SAG) 70.230
    2 Liniers Academy of Fencing (MIL) 57.440
    3 Team AMG Golden Lions (FRE) 52.605


But I know my idea is a little too much big, so I'll keep it restricted to Lisander and its satellite nations, for testing. As a more feasible alternative, I plan to host an event in Lisander for start. The signups should be up tomorrow.

Bored of having to see Juventus winning the Schudetto too many times? Can wait to see that match where Ronaldo didn’t shoot at all? Tired of seeing Napoli fight for first place when there’s no point? Oh boy, you’ve found a new friend.

For historical interest, in case anybody wants to mention this in their RP.

Our population is approximately 20 million. We do have a national government, although its role is strictly limited. Economy = thriving. Those aren't "biker gangs", they're our traditional cross-Clan 'Warrior Societies'... and are generally respected, not feared.

I contacted Costa de Ouro user about that, and I still wait for an answer from him. BTW, Thanks for the bump.

Someone else interested in Fencing? I understand this one is a niche sport, and may not be that popular, but think about the RP possibilities!
