Spending a quiet Battlesword Sunday hitting people with weapons

Yes I’m probably way more excited about Battlesword this than I should be. But I get to wear full riot armor and hit people full force with (plastic) swords. It’s full-contact and defense is important not just to save your crystals, but to ensure you don’t get hit and bruised in areas that the armor doesn’t cover.┬áBut a few sore spots don’t detract from the fun and I wear mine proudly as proof that I was in combat.
