I have to admit that when I first learned that Armizare is sword, dagger and grappling my first reaction was "Ewww, I don't want to learn grappling." (I saw it as wrestling and it is much more than that.) I was good with the dagger as it is on my learning wish list too. I decided that two out of three wasn't bad and I'd just have to deal with it. Now that we have actually got to it I find I am just fine with it. I just needed to change my perspective of it.
I feel very lucky to have found this group and the wonderful people in it. I am looking forward to a future learning new skills, some arcane and some applicable in the here and now and the friendships I am building. It is an amazing world that is opening up for me. And I have found a fun way to get exercise to boot.
