Question to the NC

Post by LordTyrantCort » 2013-02-13

Many years ago there was a ban on red swinging weapons... this is not stated in any of the recent rulebooks.
And i hear that a recent player was told to not use his back spike(red) on an axe.
Is there a rule that needs to be placed in the book.
People have been asking what is the reason that we dont see spiked clubs.

I have recently brought weapons through check-in with back-spikes on them; axes, hammers, and the like. The spikes were inspected and passed as red without issue.

Soooo... I'm aware of no rule; written or unwritten that would prevent a 'swung red'. From a personal perspective, I consider 'red' not to mean 'thrusting' or 'stabbing' but to mean 'piercing'. With that understanding both historical and fantasy war-axes, hammers, picks, and the like are perfectly reasonable.

I think the ruling might have been that two handed swinging red is a no no. One handed is fine. Although we could bring this up at the next meeting and figure something out. Sounds like a simple fix to me though. I have no issues with swung red at all one or two handed.

hopefully its the meeting that i can attend.... i am just checking into things that people have talked about for years (unwritten rules from bla blah years ago, no that was banned in 1865 after that guy was cut by duke boris) and was seeing if the story i heard from last event was true.

First rule of weapon design; 'is the weapon safe'?

Everything else is negotiable at one level or another.
