    Chronicle of Events


    Introduction

    The rank of Members of the Royal Guild of Defence in the Kingdom of Lochac is determined by the playing of Prizes. These Prizes constitute an examination of the fitness of a Member to hold rank, according to their knowledge and application of period techniques, as tested by Members at or higher than the rank to which the candidate aspires.

    This Chronicle records for posterity the Prizes that have been played since the creation of the Kingdom of Lochac in July ASXXXVII (2002). It has been drawn up through the best efforts of the Provost Secretary, according to the available records, including announcements of Prize results in the Guild journal and on the Fencers List. The Provost Secretary invites comment from any who believes this record is inaccurate.
