Re: A New Perspective on the Mage class within Darkon

The problem I see with removing the AOE mechanic from fireball is that we would have to address seige weapons as well. I could see replacing AOE with multiple spell balls. I see that as an even switch. Currently a mage using Fireball has the capability to remove at most maybe 9 people from a fight. ...

Re: New Relic/Campout Prize: Skidbladnir

Had some time to collect my thoughts and figures a features list would be better than the rambling Skidbladnir would have the following features: As A Relic: 1. Represented by a green pouch with 50ft of cord 2. Grants any person ability to walk on water. Anyone in direct physical contact may also wa...

Skidbladnir "In days of old did Ivaldi's sons Skidbladnir fashion fair, The best of ships for the bright god Freyr, The noble son of Njorth. The best of trees must Yggdrasil be, Skithblathnir best of boats; Of all the gods is Othin the greatest, And Sleipnir the best of steeds; Bilrost of bridg...

Who would you kill for glory?

With the crown war just around the corner it comes to mind that it is a day for warriors to earn glory through their actions and just as importantly, those they slay on the field and I don't mean with a knife to the back(unless your a rogue, then go for it.) With that thought, I am interested to fin...

Re: Fighting with weapons in your shield hand

I am slightly late to the thread, however I felt this was necessary: 1. There is nothing to vote on. There is not rule against it, but there was a concern about safety. It was addressed. -Yes there is, if this is to be allowed there needs to be a proposal to change the rule. I searched and didn't se...

Crown War style campout event

Story line would be similar to a crown war. One side is with the current king, the other are the uprising. Friday night alliances are formed or broken. Assasins and brigands roam the roads looking to hunt down emissaries, messangers, and purses full of gold. Saturday morning after checkin the two ar...

Re: Boots?!

I should still have the boot covers I made out of the failed boots. I am not using them if you want to take them for a spin. I cut off the bottoms completely and they tie just in front of the heel of the shoe to hold them in place. Same look, but brown instead. If you want them I can see if I can di...

Re: Boots?!

Are those the wanderer boots from Medieval Collectables? If so I would not recommend wearing them to the field! I had a pair and while they looked sturdy and I spent a couple of weeks dressing them up to cover the zipper, the soles of the boots literally fell off after about an hour of good fighting...

Any Interest in the Shield Game from "The 13th Warrior"?

A shield, constructed out of alternating strips of cardboard and ringed with plumbers foam should adequately represent the durability of the shields from the ...

I'll be sure to bring a full kit (pants, shirt, boot covers). Most of my stuff is one size fits most. As per usual, my only requ...

Re: Actually only having ring fights on tourney days?

Maybe we could find a way to combine the permanence of the current land map with a map that resets and allows for things like warbands to exist. I have heard that we are expanding the map to include some new islands or something to that effect. Why not have the islands sink under the water at the en...

Re: Actually only having ring fights on tourney days?

We could reset the land map at the end of the year just before the december break. Whichever country has the most land at that time gets some kind of reward for the new year and the land map is reset.

I will also have additional garb that will fit most people. I should have at least a few additional pairs of pants, tunics, belts/sashes, and possibly shoe covers. I am always happy to lend these things out so long as they make it back to me.

Re: Blocking Arrows with Weapons

More and more, I am coming around to the idea that arrows should be considered to pass through weapons. If I see a proposal I'll cosign. If I don't see a proposal, I'll probably draft one. Outside of a really lucky day, I can't imagine a sword deflecting an arrow enough to save you, but thats just ...

Re: Blocking Arrows with Weapons

I think an all encompassing "Don't be an a**hole rule" should officially be on the books. I think it would give elders and players a great deal of leverage with which to get rid of "grey area" issues. We could make a new series of rule changes to iron out every grey area that ari...

Re: Blocking Arrows with Weapons

It sounds to me like the spirit of the rule was to compensate for the draw strength limitations of our bows. A 30 pound draw will lob an arrow toward someone who if they are paying attention can easily swat it away. A real arrow travels much faster making it neigh impossible for anyone to do this, u...
