Great Campout!

Thank you to Darkon and especially the hosts of the event this weekend. I had a great time! Lots of fighting.

- Thrush, did you all ever manage to burn all of the firewood?

Re: Friday Night Weapons Check

I see now. My concern was that it was just a friday night overreaction. As a consistent change I can certainly see how this would improve the safety of all events. Would we be able to combine the armor bands and the weapon bands into a "he has everything check and is ok" band? IE. If you a...

Re: Friday Night Weapons Check

From this discussion and the concensus about arm bands being required to wear any armor what so ever. I am getting the distinct impression that Darkon as a whole just doesn't trust anyone who plays Darkon to do the right thing... And while I personally would/have been popped in the eye with a weapon...

Re: A system of flex

The amount of weight can be toyed with until it is right. I wouldn't want to be breaking weapons. The point being that if we find that weapons that flex a certain amount under these conditions tend to also be able to flex around the 3 '' above the shield test then we can establish a benchmark that h...

A system of flex

One of the things I have seen greatly disputed in the check in line are the "whippyness" of weapons. With no real way to measure this other than to eyeball it some of the in line rullings have been varied and sometimes even contradictory. To alleviate this I was wondering if anyone has eve...

Re: New Swords and Same Tech for Black Glaives

When I joined Darkon I inherited a used Edhellen max length white sword. That was a little over two years ago and despite my repeated efforts to break it against Chosen Bloods signature plate armor it has held up very well. The stabbing tip was simply the addition of crossed layers of plumbers foam ...

Re: Dagorhir practice in the Baltimore area

I would be able to attend on thursday or saturday after 4pm. I have recently started a sun - wed nightshift schedule and now don't have time to attend much of anything.
I don't care what ruleset we use so long as I get to swing a sword ;)

Re: Role Playing Guild Charter

Would the guild be considering hosting special events for rpers only? I understand that it might be a little ahead of the thread, but I thought it would be interesting to have an event either at or seperate from the normal Darkon events in which rping would be the highlight. Not to say that fighting...

Mage killers guild

I keep hearing about a guild that used to make a point of destroying all magic using characters. What ever happened to them? They seem like they would add some awesome rp oppourtunities to our campouts.

Re: Armor Changes - Inox

The way I read the first post it looked very simple. White does 1pt Yellow does 1pt, cannot mortal or kill limbs Black does 2pt Red does 2pt, first limb shot past armor it light I saw nothing about black doing light past armor in that first post. As per examples above: Two blacks(or 4pts of dmg) to ...

Re: Role Playing Guild Charter

Section 4: Players with characters using the player name shall change the name of their character or not play with the Guild when playing said character. Could you explain this in a little more detail? Does this mean that I may not play a character that uses my real name? Is this to aid the section ...
