Saying that taking away AOE from a mage is like taking armor, great weapons, and shields from fighters is dumb. Fireball is ONE spell. Mages can take two hits from anything, except green(which only they can throw btw). Mages have a * of other spells they can use as well, that have no AOE, that are very useful.

One could even say that maybe mages could be more creative, and use a spell in a bridge battle beside fireball??????????........ Just a thought.

As long as you promise not to call yourself dead and actually stand there for the full five minutes (not you, particularly, but anybody that gets hit). I try to not use fireball, so instead I use ice storm, and then the person just calls themselves dead... Which defeats the purpose of what I was trying to do: cause a blockage on their side of the bridge.

And when I've feebleminded people before, they just call themselves dead before anybody kills them. Instant death from fireball seems to be the way to go. At least they're actually supposed to be dead, or at the very least, close to death via mortal wounding.

So you can instantly die a bunch, or you can sit out for five minutes at a time from our other spells. I mean, which would any of you rather have? I try to mix things up unlike a lot of other mages, but it just ends up being cheesed by someone who would rather fight again 10 seconds later instead of playing by the rules.


I ALWAYS stay standing in the middle of the fighting when frozen, I think it's awesome and what makes Darkon, Darkon. But I also only hate on magic when it RUINS the games, not just because it exists.

And that is why I think you are a good player. But others aren't. If everybody really looked at the better vets in this game and took something from them, they'd all be better players.

I would like to have an escort mission, team one must take person A to area B alive... team two....do not allow person a to live....

Have it tie into the world plot.... I enjoy the fighting, but I also enjoy the. RP aspect as well, something that lacks sometimes at day events. I could be wrong, and you can flame me.... I am wearing my fireproof undies Today. :)

There is next to no RP ever at day events. Fact. You are a new player, and your observations are not tainted by experience in the game. Well observed, sir.

I think the next time we go to Patuxent we should have a caravan battle there. All those ravine and stuff would be awesome. Sketchys could stalk through the woods and ambush from the ravine, archers can shoot out of or into them. It would add so much more dimension to the fighting and make it really intense.

if you get the chance, go up to pittsburgh in the summer some time. the field that angaron (pittsburgh dag group uses) has a bunch of woods by it with hills and tight valleys there. it was a TON of fun to play there back in the day. 'course it's in the city, so parking kind of sucked.

This misconception has been the cause of alot of argument and debate in battles past that involved siege engines. Fireball is NOT green. It is Magical. Pro-Fire works against FIREBALL, not GREEN.

It doesn't exist in the rulebook. It's a special battle type run by Fingers.

Somewhere on here I believe i posted the rules, if not, look closer to July and i will post them again.
Short version:

4 kings are chosen of Charismatic Darkon Vets
everyone else draws cards from a couple decks of cards passed out.
Each Suit has a team (Clubs, Hearts, Spades, Diamonds)
Four forts in giant patauxant field, one for each suit. each suit also has a flag.
Timed battles, object is to kill the other suits, take their fort, kill their king, take their flag.
When whistle sounds, 5 minute water break while flags are returned, points are tallied.
Repeat 2 more times.

Winning suit will have their photo taken for the website, and gain some small prize I devise for the battle.

This years tentative kings are Slindar, Soulo, Lanham, and Valfryn

Just because an NPC doesn't walk up to your country in the middle of your land search and say "I wish to RP" doesn't mean there isn't any RP at day events. Kings Court, interactions with the few people who care to RP, World Plot npc's...all these things count. The scale is not large, but then again most players don't bother. But it is there if you look. And on that note we do have a scenario at the next event dealing with world plot. I expect you will notice it this time.
