Re: New chainmail specs? (lotsa numbers)

At the event this past Sunday, I realized we don't have standards for European 6-in-1 weave chainmail. It's stronger, but requires bigger rings by its very nature. Has anyone ever seen a suit of 6-in-1 at Darkon?

Re: "Adventure Only"

Perhaps what he was getting at was to allow Thieves & Assassins to up-armor to AR2, since their two-team skills are pretty limited (Backstab, Loot).

Re: Headband/Armband Survey

However, archers will absolutely avoid the orange headbands. You raise a point, but I do the exact opposite. I LOVE shooting monks when they're not paying attention. Alas, you just made me realize that could be construed as metagaming--though I generally do that with the "known" monks, li...

Re: how to make axes...

Ok and on a side note if you compare the 3 axe weapon, white axe, black battle axe, and halberd. Is it me or do the blade dememtions seem a bit silly going up by 3inchs from core to striking surface the taller the weapon? Are you thinking it's too little or too much? The logic, I imagine, is that t...

Kindred did some investigations of their own after battling the undead, including use of Speak With Dead, Commune With Nature, and tracking. I suggest you speak with Gorgrim to receive a summary of their findings.

Re: Feedback for new event type

Just use the card numbers for seeding. It's random. If going last is a disadvantage, so be it. Multiple rounds evens it out, since you'll have to give out new cards anyway.

Re: Opinions on shark mail

Back to the OP (you wankers), I'm in the same spot. I think it looks good, but it's so light. My solution is to dream of making my own mail (right now I've only got less than a square foot done) out of 18g stainless. Remember, anything that doesn't meet AR2 specs but is still sturdy is AR3...

To be clear, not all greens are verboten--as Tyriel pointed out, the "relic green" (a bright kelly green is my best description) is reserved, but Elidorian green is fine. You could certainly put a tree on a shield with no problem, just be careful what shade of green you use if there's not ...

Should we decide to open up Cavalier to commoners but still require a contest in the ring to play one, The Order of the Sword would also make a fine pool of fighters to test the mettle of any prospects.
