Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

Honestly Alzarahn, you need to quit while you are ahead. Several nobles have told you that it is safe, including ones that are in your country. Beating this dead horse will not get you any points anywhere. If you want something done about it that has already been done and went through the proper ch...

Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

It's because Darkon's tech isn't the same as many other games that allow shield edge strikes. amt doesn't allow shield edging or bashing (with the face) people have been fighting with down stabbies in their shield hand there for all 15 years i've been doing it, and i've never seen someone hurt by i...

Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

Well said Calien. I'm going to hope for the best in this case, but I still have reservations about this. Hopefully a more experience player/legislator (than myself) will codify the rules for this.

Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

I think this needs to be scrutinized heavily if it's going to be allowed. Honestly, I think it could be pretty beneficial if we make it safer for everyone. I can see it working if we adjust our shield specs and codify the rules surrounding it. It's one of those things like Shield Kicking, it can be ...

Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

Also, I want to add: If you make shields safe for edge-hits, I'm totally cool with this tactic being allowed. Right now, with 1 1/2 inch minimum edge still allowed, I just don't think it's safe. It's because Darkon's tech isn't the same as many other games that allow shield edge strikes. If you real...

Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

For example, I could kick your shield and that would be cool, or I could kick your shield into your chin and that is unsafe and would suck. Uh, dude? You realize that example just supports my argument, right? That's what we call an Illegal Shield Kick. When something is unsafe, we make rules preven...

Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

All I'm saying is we shouldn't rely on people's common sense to prevent injuries. Common sense is less common than you might think. We have to think about safety and liability to the game, a bad injury CAN cripple the game financially and lose us venues. Just because one player can play safely using...

Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

It's about risk prevention as well, Tyriel. By the same logic, I could say it's safe for someone to fight with razor-blades and spikes stuck to his armor, just as long he wasn't out grappling people.

Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

I don't think a weapon being held in a shield hand should be illegal, but attacking with one? That's dangerous territory since you can easily get bashed by a shield's edge. Bucklers are different since they are typically small, arm-strapped and generally do not protrude past the wrist. On the other ...

That will probably fail pretty fast. :( You should have went to Jo Ann's, they had some nice silver cloth there I used for my sword and it's holding up fine.

Re: New Axe

The layered blue foam method will fail quickly if it isn't using drywall tape between the layers for rigidity. Even then it will need some repair eventually, but it holds up a hell of a lot better than foam alone. With just foam and dap, your blade is going to start to deform in a way we call "...

The way I like to design mine is to keep the cloth interchangeable. I'd experimented with using PD flats stuck on with carpet tape, but unfortunately that tape fails in the rain. Now if I want to do basic rune designs on cloth flats I just use Tulip Slick Paints which go right on the cloth and are n...

Not really. The Shrink idea I present would work on NPC giant-sized creatures where Dispel wouldn't have the same effect.

This is a great idea. As a fighter, I've never used the First Aid ability, but with this in place, I may just have to make some red cross bands.

The growth mechanic is what people have a problem with, is it not? The down on bad knees action?
