Fencing and Swordfighting

Fencing

The 17th century was a violent age. Highwaymen, armed militia, and roving bands of hungry ex-soldiers infested "Civilized" Europe. Most men carried swords and had at least rudimentary training in how to use them.

As a pirate, you can expect to engage in a lot of swordplay. In ship combat your objective is usually to capture ships without damaging or sinking them. Thus you board them and try to take them by storm, meeting the enemy captain in one-on-one combat!
