Re: Garb and Costume 2014

Yes. If it's a solid color without logos on it, it will be fine. If it's got a graphic on it, there's a chance a marshal may find it inappropriate for play.

Costume 2014 (garb trends/what marshals are looking for)

This year, I've seen some good and some bad. I've really enjoyed the increase in tunics and custom work. Lots of good stuff out there, and I'm dying to see more! As to the things that have still plagued us? Logos, footwear, modern (typically cargo) pants. As we all know- minimum garb standards are a...

Costume 2014 (on the field/multiple rulings/discrepancies)

On the field: Aside from check in, costuming standard is to be upheld all day. If you're fielding, please be mindful of your costuming "degrading" over the day (you may be asked to 1 sword, or even sit out), and if you're on the sidelines- it still looks good to be garbed! I'm going to pre...

Garb and Costume 2014 (How to check in)

As a player, checking in is a piece of cake. 1. Players are to be garbed before checking in. 2. Players are to present their surcoats, banners, elder tunics to marshals. 3. Players are to ensure that the marshal standing post is aware of their being counted. (so pretty much, stay in one line, and ma...

Garb and Costume 2014

Back by Unpopular Demand: Lord Valfryn (C. Murphy) as NC Garb and Costume Overseer, here and boy do I have some great feelings about this year's costuming. I've assembled a great team of marshals (that I'm sure that everyone's going to love) and formulated a few protocols that should make Country Re...

Re: A New Perspective on the Mage class within Darkon

Say for example, you have: Hands, Bolt,Blast and Wall each spell can be muted to an element however the mage wants. It does the EXACT same thing no matter what except for the "adventure rule" that it is trying to evoke. I would like a "wall spell": like sanctuary, but the wizard ...

Nurgle is Opposed Sorry man Don't like the daggers or javelins sections. You just proposed to make every dagger I use in the game illegal. None of them have a 6-9 inch striking surface, they are stab tips on a handle. No stab tip is 6-9 inch long. The current rule is: "Daggers must have a stri...

Re: A New Perspective on the Mage class within Darkon

Changing the level of a spell does not solve the clumsy mechanic that is AOE. Having spell balls (albeit with a stripe on them) that are red being tossed around will still cause more confusion than anything (which is the same reason why I think AOE is a * mechanic). The DD spells are cool, though th...

Re: new comer for the 17th

Everyone is friendly and helpful (OOC, anyway). RTFM (at least "new players", combat) Be sure to mingle. Ask questions. Don't ever decide your team based on your favorite colors. Don't flesh out a primary player character (rp wise) until you've played a bit and "dipped a toe in the re...

Re: Maelstrom- redux

don't want to worry about "halving" 3 points of damage. Also, 1 handing a sword that belonged to a giant seems dumb to me. The main purpose was to have people USING maelstrom. Not "holding maelstrom".
