Re: 2012 Bylaws Proposal

Look Pat, I like you and I know your a nice guy and you've been working on this thing... so someone attacking it must be hard to take at times. I hate it when people are critical about stuff I do. But that's life in the big city. I post my concerns for the good of the game, not to be mean. I know it...

Re: 2012 Bylaws Proposal

I'd just like to make a point here Pat. While you've been complaining on the boards about me not writing anything to change the proposal, you've written this: Yes that part of the proposal makes me a little uneasy BUT at the same time I do not feel that if someone really attacks another on the field...

Re: 2012 Bylaws Proposal

Some members have expressed that they do not feel the Board should be able to permanently ban a participant for committing battery. The ban is not the issue, it is the inability for the Senate to re-instate. No John... this isn't an accurate assessment. Banning forever is also a serious issue when ...

Re: 2012 Bylaws Proposal

Just so I am clear. You want to allow people who are found to be sex offenders to our events with minors? I don't want the club to have to do background checks on every player in the game, nor do I want people checking for dirt on others they don't like. You want to prevent the Board from being abl...

Re: 2012 Bylaws Proposal

Re: 2012 Bylaws Proposal

Fingers it's not about defining battery... it's about the fact we play a full contact sport and tempers do occassionally flare. If anyone does something so serious that they should be kicked out of the game FOREVER... I am certian the EB would do this. But pushing someone in the heat of battle on a ...

Re: 2012 Bylaws Proposal

Here's the legal def of battery: (1) an act by a defendant; (2) an intent to cause harmful or offensive contact on the part of the defendant; and (3) harmful or offensive contact to the plaintiff. The Act The act must result in one of two forms of contact. Causing any physical harm or injury to the ...

Re: 2012 Bylaws Proposal

I am so against this proposal I can't possibly write enough as to how wrong it is. Every full contact sport has flare-ups between players where they push each other or even come to blows(football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer etc...). This rule does not account for cirumstances in any way. I...

Re: Glaives and Axe rules make no sense

"At least 1/3 of the weapon’s total length must be blade, up to the maximum blade size." That was written to mean that it has to be 1/3 of the size of the weapon, but if it can't be, it has to be maximum blade size (36"). That's not what the rules states...the word "MUST".....

Re: Glaives and Axe rules make no sense

As I already said, the handle is not the physical force hitting me. It is the lever action created by a longer handle which allows for greater force to be applied at the tip. Ok so by that logic a 4' handle on a 5' weapon would generate more force than a 3' handle... If you are getting injured by t...

As far as it being a fluke.... I've been to say, 40 total events and have had some sort of black weapon injury to my lower extremities about 5 times.

FIne Will,

Then don't specify the max length to be something it can't actually be... it makes no sense (i.e. could be confusing to someone trying to make a 7' white glaive or 10' black glaive... just say 6 and 9' long, respectively...

Re: Glaives and Axe rules make no sense

You miss the point... 9' Glaives have no restriction on max handle length... so you can have a 4' handle on a black axe, but greatswords are restricted... Plus I could never imagine hitting anyone in the ankle with my greatsword handle... that my friend is a fluke... it would be like outlawing plate...

OK I posted this topic on the unofficial area and it seems no one is doing anything over there any more... so here goes: The rules for Black glaives make no sense to me. Black Glaive (Black weapon) Black glaives must be between 7’ to 10’ in length, with a maximum core diameter of 1". The blade ...

Re: Quarterstaffs

God forbid it might encourage someone to actually field with a quarterstaff! It won't. Adding an extra thrusting end will do nothing to make that weapon any more effective in the game. The rationale for not having double stabby wasn't the deterioration of the tips or the construction, but the game ...

Re: Armor Changes - Inox

I wasn't being sarcasic there. I meant it. The idea is that white is changed from on hand slicing to one hand non-chained... So you would basically have one hand non-chain (white), two hand swinging (black), stabbing (red) and chained weapons (yellow). The idea of this is to get rid of the concept o...

Dear Kobalos,

Please make sure the Lord Chamberlain be notified, as to whom will be collecting the King's taxes in your stead, prior to your sabbatical. The King thanks you for your ongoing service to the Crown.

Best of luck finding a worthy temporary proxy,

Simplified Further...?

Here's another suggestion, while were on the subject of simplicity... if we're revamping this thing lets try to simplify it as far as it will go... Why not make chained weapons the only yellow weapons... all non-chained one handers are white. All the silly stuff about bars vs. sword quillions a club...
