Thinking about the the call for commentary from the B.o.D. I had this running around my head, and then some rather unkind words came to my attention. What they were and who they were from were not important per sé, but the general source got me thinking about the difference between the Chiv, and those who would be worthy of the proposed Valiance Proposal.
Where it relates to all the other Peer-like qualities there is no difference. One point of contention that regularly seems to rear its ugly head is the comparison of weapon forms and judgement thereof.
That is another conversation which we have all had before but Id like to take a look from another aspect.
I think the Chiv have something right in the sense that there is an expectation that one to have master many weapon types. Whereas with the Valiance Proposal, I have heard many in discussion about those with specific weapon types being eligible.
It stands now that with the M.o.D. that there is one main weapon type. Im sure Ill be corrected, and that I am betraying my ignorance of the martial activity. It seems to me that there is a wide variety of weapons in ‘heavy’ fighting. So it stands with the Valiance community there are a wide variety of weapon forms.
Might it stand to reason then, that a candidate be expected to be a master of all the weapon forms as well? Held to the same standard in a respect?
To me this makes sense. That a well rounded candidate not only betray the PLQs but be aware and active enough in the community, dedicated enough, that they have taken the time to master the arts. Spread the learning, and by doing have spread knowledge and hopefully exposed others.
What do you all think? Is there value in mastering all weapon forms of the Valiance?
Should one master all weapon forms to be eligible for elevation?

On a side note friends, stay positive. There are always those who will try to bring others down, detract others through spite, ignorance, and sometimes even out of good intention.
Never fall for it, be the light and spread the good word. Be good to each other and keep being the best you can be.
