Re: INVADING AFTER A FAILED LAND SEARCH

Some countries will actually pick the harder encounter, even with no added benefit (i.e. towers). Ched has always been good about that.

Others wimp out ;)

Re: Dues Increase to $5 for Day Events?!

Thank you, Exec Board, for being willing to make hard choices. Thank you, Senate, for giving your time and serious consideration to these issues. I am behind you on this. The dues vote was pushed through as an emergency measure, but all Senators were given advance notice, and they voted. The time ha...

Re: Kobalos Chainmail Proposal

It seemed to me that during Senate, the fear wasn't so much that Sketchies and Rangers could move to other armor types, it's that they would take more hits. Personally, I don't think it was all that unbalancing, but that was the concern among Senators. I don't think that simply tweaking what specifi...

Re: Changing the color type of siege weapon damage

Doesn't even have to be that. It can (and it's most simple) just say "fireballs do this" specific only to fireballs Yup. As someone pointed out in Senate (Lanham, perhaps), no one says "GREEN!" when a fireball lands. They say "Fireball," or more likely, "BOOM!"

Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

Duke Andrick wrote:So, unless someone can produce the section of the rulebook that specifically forbids this tactic the NC ruling stands and it is a valid tactic. Optionally, if someone is truly against it make a proposal in Senate.


QFT. The NC ruled it was safe--if you want to outlaw it, pursue that in Senate.

Re: Growth Spell

So why not leave the mage spell alone, not nerf mages at all, and instead go straight to the heart of the matter...fighting on your knees is kind of dumb. Yes, fighting on your knees is dumb. But the problem isn't generally the NPCs (giants), it's when a PC gets GG cast on him/her during a campout,...

Re: Growth Spell

In a campout situation, with two opposing forces both grappling with the same giant, I would want to preserve the tactical advantage by using Giant Growth on my "team". The other force would have to fight from their knees, and possibly incur more injuries, this way. It's not griefing, it's...

Silver Lame

So I ordered some silver lame (as in lame-eh, though I wonder) not realizing it was more paper than cloth. Do y'all think it would pass as a weapon cover?

I definitely support a Growth spell for use vs. other Giant-sized critters. Alas, I'm not currently in a country and am thus not a senator. If that doesn't matter, then "Cosign".

Re: Suggestion for an Extremely Minor Rule Change

PadreCaedes wrote:Minor Rule change maybe, but it would be a huge change in the dynamic of the game.

Indeed. On one hand, it'll make even minor healers (rangers, druids) more useful. On the other hand, it'll make for (slightly?) less death in the game.

I think he meant wrist bands. The wrist bands we're discussing apply to weapons only and are put on the weapon handle.
