We're all over the MD/DC area, and even in VA for most campouts and a couple day events per year. For details, go here: http://www.darkon.org/events.html

You can also find the rules on our main site (darkon.org), under "publications".

Re: Stance on Hay Bail Walls

Honestly, I think castle/ siege fights should be a timed event. If the bad guys can't breach the gates/ ring a bell/ take a banner in less than 30 mins, call it. Adjust the match accordingly, much more fun. I'm all for it. As Land Marshal, I actually told the war-action participants once (Ched vs. ...

Monks & Orange Headbands

BLUF: Monks do not need an orange headband to deflect missile weapons. The headband is an ability marker (headband armor), not a class symbol. A question came up during Bellum as to whether or not monks needed a headband to deflect missile weapons. As the elder within earshot, I said "no",...

Re: Getting rid of Guild Masters making poison

Last comment, I swear. If you go with the "sig poison" option, you should clarify that if it's the guildmaster's poison (assuming he's also lvl 20, according to the other proposal) or the assassin's poison (in that case, does the assassin get the ability even if he's <20th rank?).

Re: New Rule for Assassin roleplay

I like it, but I think the antidote should be lootable in general (not just after the deed, and not just when specifically looking for it). That way, there's the chance of pickpocketing it before the hit, which would make for amusing roleplay (let's let that Assassin hit the king, then we'll adminis...

Ah, just read the other proposal--now I see what a Signature Poison is. You might want to just add this to the other proposal to reduce confusion and not jam up Senate with the possibility of only one of them passing.

Re: Getting rid of Guild Masters making poison

Unfortunately, I think having 15 "Last Rite Writs" floating around every adventure day is a bit much, and that's only with the three current guilds. There's nothing stopping us from adding more guilds in the future if the assassin population becomes significantly larger. I like the idea of...

Re: Bellum Aeternus II Pre-Registration

The other [viewpoint] is that perhaps this new 'adult behavior' doesn't belong at a wargaming event. What is transpiring at Darkon camping events that we need to be concerned about Darkon's legal standing in the event a 16 or 17 year old is exposed to it? Drugs? Illegal in the states we play.

Re: Abandoning Land

I'm all for countries being able to abandon stuff. That being said, I'd prefer the following: Abandoning a hex or scuttling a ship shouldn't take a land action--that's like saying "I had to expend resources to stop expending resources." If I don't want to put resources into maintaining lan...

We have actually throw 3 big ass campouts, costing thousands of dollars each with months and months of planning for each (the first one I believe had at least a year of planning and working on props/costumes).

Re: Arrows

Not knowing who you are or what unit you are with, Darkon has a pretty long wait period for new archers (10 events) if I remember correctly. Assuming that you are past that time. You could feasibly make an ensolite tipped arrow with at least 1.5" of tip and it might pass. Using Unifoam which i...

Re: How interesting

Again, the 5-(wo-?)Man Team contest is not actually part of the Commoner's Tourney. Neither was the Archery Contest yesterday.

I do suggest, to make that clear, that the 5-Man Teams be held on a different day. The Commoner's Tourney takes long enough anyway ;)
