Surprisingly great weather today

Great day of fighting. Despite the hike back up from the fighting area in which I thought I died twice, today was a great day for fighting. Sunny, 55 degrees, low winds. I had to shed layers hehe.

Thanks as always to the elders for stepping up to run two teams and to everyone that stabbed me in the back, or shield kicked me in the stomach *cough*Urgot*cough*. Fun times.

Special thanks to Keira for carrying my shield as I tried to juggle my other gear and hobble on my gimped foot. I owe you a beer at the march campout.

Fingers

It would be Machate since Bendore is not the President.

Indeed. A lot of fun and I will repeat the thanking by thanking the elder's for their work

Though I feel the need to say taking a red to the torso whilst wearing hide = dead so there is no need to then to intentionally stab me in the groin

Mortalled, actually... But still no reason to stab you in the groin.

Groin is a legal target zone in Darkon. Lots of people were blowing off shots (red to hide etc...) yesterday, it may have been mounting frustration.

Definitely a legal hit zone and I can understand the mounting frustration

yeah ive been stabbed in the groin the past 2 events and almost kicked in it. that shield you sold me is a "seven letter word that rhymes with trucking" magnet for that "four letter word that rhymes with spit".

You might want to consider bringing your shield a little bit further towards the center of your body...

If you are getting shoulder shotted using the shield you bought from me, you are doing something seriously wrong... For real.

Probably. Keep in mind that I have fought exactly THREE battles with the shield I bought from you, so I havent quite "mastered" it yet. I tend to take taps to my left shoulder from usually taller opponents while I am often trying to block spear shots at my legs/groin.

Of course we all cant be badasses ya know, Im happy just winning some fights =P

Drop in your stance about 3 to 5 inches, move the shield straps down 2 inches. Trust me.

This advice changed my combat for the better. Paid off in dividends. Dividends!
