Re: Fighter's Armor Repair

I recall a camp fire story I heard of a work around to this rule (at a campout after many drinks). The person requiring the repair would lay down and the fighter would begin repairing the armor. The person wearing the armor would yell and hollar as though someone was hitting them with a hammer (whic...

Re: A Guide I Found on Axes (So opinions?)

Constructed this in that same fashion http://www.darkon.org/boards/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=272 Rolled on the core before it hit check in. I am working on another designed based off of Edhellens axes, essentially the same idea, but instead of doing the wrap around the core itself, you build a thin c...

Re: Service to the Crown

But one can one expect from a "warrior" that can't even be depended on to maintain a base allegiance to a country? Perhaps you should have taken more time to choose your words before allowing them to dribble onto your bib. I have fought with one country since arriving at the shores of Dar...

Re: Service to the Crown

Perhaps it would have been different had King Cailen taken his crown in the ring, as did the others that preceded him. Perhaps I could have overlooked his devotion to a deity diametrically opposed to mine own. Sadly, we will never know. Things are such as they shall remain, and we merely respond to...

Cardboard shield battle days

I had heard at one point that we used to have events featuring cardboard shields.

Are there any plans in the next year to have an event day with them?

It cannot be too hard to construct a safe to play with shield out of cardboard. Sounds pretty fun as well.

Re: Shield Breaking and White Axes

Shield Breaking and White Axes

!!! Like the reduction proposal, this will only apply if shield break becomes a fighter/cav ability!!! I was thinking this could be done in the following fashion: 1 handed Axes(White) Will cause a shield or buckler to break in five solid hits. A shield previously struck by a single handed axe will s...

Re: Crown War

This isn't wrong. Plenty of countries reach out to mercs in times of war. This is a win win. We get more people on the field for the crown war and introduce a bunch more players who already enjoy foam fighting to our game.

Re: Shield Breaking Hits Reduction

So you want to add some of the issues we have with armor in our current system to shields?? We could always parallel Inox's armor proposal. Shield have 4 hit points. Bucklers have 2 hit points. One handed axes deal 1 pt to shields 2 handed axes deal 2 pt to shields. Calien, I am not trying to turn ...

I don't see why bucklers would have the same ability to withstand these weapons.

Re: Fighter Ability: Shield Breaking

I agree that white axes should be added to the list of weapons a fighter can use to shield break. Maybe we could have it break in four instead of three or something to weaken it a little. It would give the single handed axe more purpose and allow fighters on the shield wall to be more effective with...
