While I agree that the rule is a tad silly I would hate to see them disposed of completely. Just find a way for them to have more purpose. People will bring them out when there is a reason to. Hell, if I could pay my rent once every few months I'd eventually forget too. I just think it adds a certain appeal to the game, especially to spectators on the outside looking in. Thats too important to be done away with in my opinion.

Can I suggest we move this out of the general forum and into proposal discussion as we're now debating the merits of banner vs no banner that may end in a proposal

The rules are quite simple and seem to have current purpose. To force people into Eldering as they are supposed to and to weed out the inactive nations of the realm in a simple, objective manner.

Have pride in your nation enough to bring a banner bearing your livery and do your duty to the realm by eldering and bringing the elder tunic. (that last bit being said, I do NOT think any of you are not doing your duty to the game in any way; but thats the purpose of the Elder tunic.)

I would agree to change if there was an actual need for change, and in this I see absolutely no need to change the rules.


I challenge you to take note at every day event you attend how many banners are being displayed against how many countries "made country" each day. At the end of the year, please present numbers. Until most countries do something with their banner, who cares? I am not in a country, and have my own banner, for me. So I'm on the "I love banners team". BUT, I do agree that it's kind of retarded to demand something that does nothing... But it's not a big deal in any way for me... I'm not in a country.

Elidor's banner is proudly displayed where we sit each day. It is picked up and marched onto the field of battle during every land search. In addition there are several nobles banners that are often displayed, and I usually have the Darkwood flag hanging from my chair.

If the most apathetic country in the game can have a banner, there is no excuse for anyone else.

Challenge accepted. I will make a banner pole for presentation.
I would like to see banners made specifically for banner battles, (y'know, more "padded-er")
I would also suggest that the bannerman needs to stay at least fireball distance from at least 1 living countryman.

My bannermen are usually the injured folk or a non-com who just stands there...though we have not been in a war yet so I have had not need for one.

Until the rules account for a banner that is combat legal (at least blocking) , I dont plan on taking one out for ass beatery. Pennant spear is gonna be the limit for now.

Back in the day (it was a wednesday) countries used to have banners on padded poles for fighting, and then more elaborate decorative ones for displaying in camp. of course idiots would go into camp and drag the nice banner (often times with a note that said "this banner is NOT in play" out of the camps anyway.

Kudos for Darkon being a collection of idiots.
