Darva... yeah, he's not in NQ, but fights a similar style. If he were part of NQ, I would not be. That's all I am gonna say about that guy.
...but somehow you came into this conversation ready to bite our heads off for suggesting that people stop being cowards...
You seem to take offense at my words making my overall statements about some people in the realm and attempting to apply them to yourself. Please stop.
MY POINTS ARE:
1) If you are posting about settling differences via combat and you are not doing so, you need to STFU.
2) I see very few of the people writing on these boards actually challenging anyone on the field
3) If I haven't mentioned you directly AND the stuff I am saying doesn't apply to you, don't assume I am talking about you.
you seem to have been missing point #3. You have already stated that you do challenge folks to honroable combat within the realm; that nullifies you as a member of the population I was ranting about... However you let yourself back in but ignoring:
so if the shoe doesn't fit, don't attempt to cram it on...
If you agree with me AND you are not in the group of folks I have an issue with, as you've asserted you are not, then why would you think I was "ready to bite your head off"?
That's one of the many problems with the written word... When people read ANYTHING inflamatory, they instantly assume the writer had them in mind when they wrote it.
Speaking to the realm here: Trust me when I say I was talking about the state of the realm in general and no one person specifically... so if you run around challenging folks to fights... you're good.
I am speaking about the 98.6% of the realm, who would rather hide behind their shield wall and spears and wait for a fireball in order to off one badass dude vs. stepping out and testing your mettle. Then after you've won by not fighting... hoping on the boards and acting as if your a competent warrior. If you are that guy... and you know if you are... then you can take offense if you want... cuz that's how I meant it.
