Re: Headband/Armband Survey

Headbands are the physical effect of a spell. (I don't know why monks where it on the head, when they could wear a blue band on the arm)


Didn't it used to just be blue band on the arm? And right now John, monks have to wear a headband with dot on it to have leather/iron skin.

Srsly, look at those long locks of hair. There needs to be a wave crashing upwards in the background with a horse next to him to make it romance novel worthy.

Hit em til they drop. Typically you hunt for gaps in armor and spots that people can't rhino. I look for pocket stabs, elbows and biceps, underneath the bracers.

Re: Alternatives to vancian system spells.

This is the text from Cormac's post. Here's a weird idea. Straight out of the weird zone. It has its weird zone passport and everything. NOTE: Not meant to deal with area of effect, except obliquely. It is meant to provide a new way of thinking about ongoing effects that doesn't require spell point ...

Re: Alternatives to vancian system spells.

It's really a matter of appropriately allocating sustenance points and preventing a spellcaster from being able to cast everything at once. So we look at the max that they do and set it up so they can't cast everything by putting a hard cap limit. So let's look at the battle mage loaded for bear. St...

Re: Alternatives to vancian system spells.

I contacted Cormac to present the idea here, but from what I remember the system removed all spellpoints and added sustenance points every 2-3 levels up to 12 or something. I remember that it was purposely made impossible for the mage to have a full loadout and still be able to cast fireball. The be...

Alternatives to vancian system spells.

Just pulling this from another topic. Our current spell system encourages lack of participation from mages until there is a situation where a spell dump is needed (final battle, mod etc.) What are other alternatives to help engage mages to be able to engage in gameplay that won't be overpowering?

Re: Darkon's Expectations

One thing that I do like about Amt is that they have a delinated nobility and belt system. I'd like for this to be a part of the core rules. Nobles in the true sense of the word should be people that we have put up as the best examples of us. I think that some skeleton system should be put up to rec...

Different kinds of punishments for infractions?

I was wondering if there are other kinds of punishments for safety infractions short of suspensions and banning. I have concerns about how some particular players are unsafe with certain weapons. In this case I'm referencing greatswords. Can the club ban a player from the use of a particular weapon ...

The heraldry registry is a nice bonus, but should not be a dealbreaker.

Any inherent problem with halberds and large axes come from the sheer dimensions required to make them. I've made and used and axe or two and the biggest problem is the foam itself curling over repeated strikes. The only way I've been able to stop that is by using hide armor grade leather to encase ...

Re: Rules Usage

The only time where the same rules matter should be when you are playing with groups from different areas together. If you go to a park and they have house rules, then you should follow the rules of the park. The danger of creating " house" rules is simply the danger of credits and time th...

Re: Amtgard and Darkon

Having played Amt once or twice, there are some notable differences. The biggest one is that Darkon plays in a more physical manner. We allow shield bashes, grappling and shield kicks. Weapons and shield tech are fairly similar. They don't differentiate between round bats and flatblades as being dif...

Re: Darkon associated groups...

The funny thing is that because there are national events and a codified ruleset, chapters tend to just stick with the basic ruleset. I frankly would not care how other chapters play in-house as long as when there are interchapter events that there is a unified ruleset to play with.

I'd rather see the wording changed to take out any mention of short sword. The minimum length swung weapon is 18" for bars, clubs, hammers and axes, but then changes for short swords at 16" blade + handle. Let's try to make the weapons standards consistent. <18" - stabbing. => 18"...
