Re: Archery alteration proposal

I thought we were trying to simplify the rules dont add another damage category. Anyways, why the boost to armor penetration? Was it lacking before? What is the need for the proposal?

Blocking Arrows with Weapons

According to the rulebook available online, it states on page 23: "If an arrow is intentionally blocked, caught, or deflected by a participant through means other than a shield, that participant suffers a light wound to the limb that blocked the arrow, regardless of armor." So if a player ...

Re: Open Discussion - Order of the Sword ability?

Tactical Mind: once per life, negates Area of Effect damage and effects within 3 ft of noble.

This gives a great tactical and useful ability that buffs those around the noble.

My two cents

Re: Darkon Coin

We have more gold than silver right? And we have moved away from the silver standard into the gold standard. Why not recall all silver coin and make it "platinum" representing X gold?

Tiffany (Vyx/Ravenna) takes pictures most events but she doesn't have a board account. So here they are. I don't know if her profile is set on private or public.

Re: The Scoundrel/ The Rogue

Any player can be a trained killer, the RP determines the abilities not the other way around. I.E., Thrush plays a fighter but wears hide. A rogue can pickpocket but not use assassinate. Many character play their character without using all of the abilities.

Re: Discussion - Remove offensive spells

Fingers, I think backhackers suck but thats how some people have fun. Shooting a bow accurately takes a lot of skill; I am terrible at it. I think the best bet is just to playtest each possible solution. Remove AoE on Boat Battles, and remove word reduction on offensive spells at two teams events. I...

Re: Discussion - Remove offensive spells

Maybe its the method that is the problem. I know javelins were discussed and so was limited number. Anyone think using bow and arrow would help? Magic Missile does black. Fireball "arrow" kills outright.

This would increase the effective range but requires skill to use.

Re: Discussion - Remove offensive spells

Bors, For the rulebook found online in the Documents/Forms link. Page 2. "Darkon is a full‐contact recreation of medieval/fantasy‐style combat for sport." Funny I don't see LARP in here. Iltz, I would play my cleric but Tyreal is taking forever to get me my new shield, and then I have to P...

Re: Discussion - Remove offensive spells

Dear pissy mage, to kill with a fireball you are required to read from a book and throw a small pillow into a crowd of (most likely distracted) people. This requires 0 skill. I think of Darkon as a sport, which by Google means, "An activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an indi...

Re: Why does weight = armor?

I think the vast majority of members want Darkon to look sexy without making it a rich guys game where heat-treated aluminum armor is on par with 16g historically accurate pieces or see soda cap chainmail. When I think of Mithral chainmail, I think of titanium. That being said I would support a comp...

Start making proposals and I will cosign to simplify the magic system, to take out AoE of magic, and/or to make headband armors count as AC.
