"The Best Defense needs a good Offense!" The Beaver Academy was founded in the Shire of Ravenslake in A.S. XXXII as a public Academy for the Study and Practice of Rapier Fencing in the Style of our esteemed predeccesors DiGrassi, Silver, Savolio and others. Recent innovations of the Beaver Academy include the Rapier Pike and notorious "fish fight" in the Midlands Rapier List. The Beaver Academy also hosts a Middle Kingdom Academy of Defense (see the Events menu for more info) on a regular basis at the Shire of Ravenslake.

Bearer of Thorbjorn's Favor:
Every year at the Middle Kingdom Academy of Defense, fencers are asked to elect a new bearer of Thorbjorn's Favor.
Thorbjorn's Favor is a traveling honor, created in remembrance of Master Thorbjorn the Greysides, awarded once a year to an attendee of the Middle Kingdom Academy of Defense in the Shire of Ravenslake. Citizens of the Middle Kingdom and of the kingdoms of Northshield, Ealdormere and Calontir are eligible. Those who have already born the favor (see list below) are not eligible to bear it again. The bearer is chosen each year by a vote of those fencers in attendance. Tie votes are decided by the previous bearer. The new bearer is asked to wear the favor for one year, to bring it back to the next MKAOD, and to have his or her name embroidered on the favor before passing it on to the next bearer.
