Re: April 22nd 2012 - Spring Tourney

Sheesh, don't envy those judges. Haha, I thought it was fast when I was in there, but upon seeing the vids, woof. One of the reasons that we pick judges who have fought in the ring above other nobles (even ones in the same country as a combatant i.e. elidor) is because having the experience of judg...

His girth makes him look deceptively short.

Re: Two Men Enter....

I don't see why you posted two portraits, since Sir Martin (or someone who looks just like him) is already present in the first picture.

You see him? Yeah, the short one in the back.

Re: Awesome Weather for Spring Tourney!!! ...not

Well, at least you know we're going to have ONE Noble Tourney that day... From my esteemed opponent: "Assuming we're fighting rain or shine. In the event of an electrical storm, I'm still fine fighting in an open field while wearing steel armor, as Eric is taller than I." We're definitely ...

Re: Opinions on shark mail

How many useful threads have been killed by Cailen's pictures? I've read at least 3 on this board plus enough to make your head spin on the NC boards.

And Tyriel...How could you think that I look like that bloated old Thor-butt-kisser...

Re: Growth Spell

A mage causing someone to be uncomfortable on the one hand is perfectly acceptable in my book. A mage causing an unsafe situation on the other hand, is not acceptable. I imagined that the griefing was due to them granting a quick, unfair advantage to them or their designated player, which is not rea...

Re: Different kinds of punishments for infractions?

There are, and yes. To my knowledge it has been done before. If you take issue with a player, please report it to your friendly neighborhood NC member as soon as possible so it can be brought to the group as a whole. The institutional memory of Darkon resides in the NC and we take our job of watchin...

Re: Growth Spell

If you have a bow, all I have to do is charge you. If I have a shield, you may be totally screwed. Otherwise, I can time my charge, or try to dodge. If you have a spear, I can block or parry and move in. Weapons on weapons, in both cases. If you have a 60' diameter spell, I need magic or some speci...

Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

I'm honestly not personally satisfied that this is safe; I realize that my personal feelings are not important in regards to the ruling, they make no difference. The rules currently say nothing about this, and the NC has ruled that it's safe to fight with the weapon in your shield hand. That's wher...

Back to the OP, I think that Friday night weapons checking is a great idea. At this point, it's the responsibility of the ones running the campout to be in charge of this. If the club dictates this as a requirement, the club should probably provide weapons checkers on Friday night. Can we guarantee ...

Hi, my name is Giant, you can't get near me.

Hi, my name is little dude with a bow. I don't have to get near you.

Hi, my name is little dude with a spear. I still have longer range than you do unless you have a spear. And in that case, refer to my little dude with a bow friend.

Re: Armor Changes - Inox

All I'm saying is that you're trying to set up an experiment where you can't actually measure anything. Your intent is great, but how will you actually determine whether vets are capable of adjusting? The way playtesting has worked in the past for us is we run a playtest, then some people whine. Oth...

Re: Headband/Armband Survey

I dont understand, what would the problem be for hitting someone in the chest wearing a blue arm band? Going for gaps in armor is perfectly fine. If you dont see visible armor, assume there is some sort of mystic protection from head to toe and hit them til they drop. So, under current rules, if yo...

Re: Armor Changes - Inox

Write up EXACTLY what you want play tested. Nothing can be done without a definitive rule proposal, lots of advance notice, distrobution to the countries and several consecutive events using the rules to be tested. Which is why I think it would be preferred to simply vote on the rules rather than p...

Re: Growth Spell

I'm with Absolom. What makes Darkon distinctively a LARP instead of just a fighting game is the fact that there are some situations that you CAN'T just fight through and rely on skill of arms alone. Having enemies that you can't use your normal tactics against isn't stifling for our game. It's illum...

My interests in playtesting would be to determine... 1. If plate soaking an extra white/ yellow is too much. 2. If Black taking AC3 limbs out quicker is too much. 3. If this system would benefit from/ need to be "first hit through armor is always a light wound". It's not always about gaug...

Re: Headband/Armband Survey

Headbands are the physical effect of a spell.

Re: April 8th Event

Since you aptly pointed out that no one even had shields, I think it was apparent that this buff had little to no effect. The real time of win was when the gate came down and the zombies pushed (literally) through the gate to kill the remaining survivors. It's amazing what taking one little extra st...
