Historical Background

The latin epitaph "Requiescat in pace" (English: Rest in peace) is a common catholic expression often found on headstones, abbreviated as "R.I.P.". Missing two words of the phrase, the Weapon Skill can just be translated as "rest", but not as an imperative (command) but simply as a noun.
