Spoilers in the preload, but I guess you know that already.

Wasn't there some really stupid, old-timey sounding "technical" term for medieval sword fighting that was invented by LARP/ Renfaire nerds? Anyone remember what that was?

Is boffer the word you're looking for?

This predates LARPERs but https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historical_European_martial_arts gets thrown about sometimes.

Boffer is for children.

You may be referring to "Western Martial Arts" (WMA) or "Historical European Martial Arts" (HEMA).

No, it was something else. Something less sensible and more sounding like it came off the pages of a 16th century French manuscript that some neckbeard had lying around his mobile home. I seem to recall there being some LARP websites on poeRed (a fencing instructor? One of WinterRose's friends? An otherkin Usenet group, even?) that liked to use it, but I might have dreamed the whole thing.

Poor, poor WinterRose. *weg*

Is it just me, or was anybody else expecting Mike, Crow, and Tom to make some kind of joke during all of that?

I don't understand. I'm looking at an abstract chess board and, when a piece is captured, it awkwardly forces me to watch this?

Shouldn't he only be moving one space diagonally? This isn't canon at all.

"13th century lag kill"

Just take them.

wouldn't you just let go of your sword if you were the knight?
