Eliminate AC 1

So, we've played with the new armor system for awhile now, and overall I think it was a great thing for Darkon. That said, I have heard many people complain about the number of hits plate takes and about 5oz leather counting as armor (because really, it is clothing not armor). I'd like people to dis...

Re: Armigerous Awards

I have to agree with some of the points Pat made. My biggest concern atm would be how few people have most of the awards so far. That coupled with a lack of any quorom requirement would be a receipe for disaster. Lets say Lord Frumpy Pants is the ONLY holder of a specific award at the Triumverate me...

Re: Discussion - Conflict of Interest in Bylaws

Why not simply add a statement to the effect of a NC member may not sit on the Senate at anytime when the Senate is discussing the removal of anyone from the NC? Seems like a fairly simple and straightforward solution to me.

I'd like to take the time to thank the idiot(s) who destroyed the restrooms at Pax. Your complete disregard for the rest of Darkon is admirable.

Re: Order of the Crown

Good question. CC is awarded to those that served a full term on the Board (of Directors). As of November 2012, the LM is a member of the Board of Directors. The LM was never a member of the Executive Board. So, once you serve a full term on the Board of Directors you would get the CC and it is not ...
