I have a friend that's deaf that wants to Nerf. I am not saying he can't I am just saying that it's not only difficult for him it is for us other Nerfers too. I know Sign Language and I can't follow him all over the battlefield, but I need some help with coming up with some "Don't be a Douchbag" rules. I can't think of any at all, so some help is much apprciated.

EDIT: Ok I see where I messed up here. I mean don't be a douchbag to him rules.

Tell him to not aim for people's dicks or heads. Don't barrel tap people's faces. Don't shoot Titans at point blank. There are a lot of those kind of rules that you can learn just from experience.

I can't think of a whole lot because I'm not in their position and don't know the person, but no flanking would be a start.

Nah, I think TED's being ignorant here, shouldn't we include everyone? It's not exactly all that fair to have a deaf kid show up then telling him to go away because he has disabled hearing. Would you appreciate that happening to you?

Just say no taking advantage of him, and include some examples, such as sneaking up behind him, as well as general mouth-the-words so he thinks you're talking but you're not, and that way he thinks something else is going on when the plan could be the exact opposite.

best 100th post ever.

Go with teaching everyone a single basic hand sign for 'hit' as was suggested. Also he may have to deal with the fact he has to adapt a bit to others by being a bit more aware visually of game play: he WILL face disadvantages like cross field communication via the traditional yelling but he can make up for it with some other area like agression.

Unless he is a tool, that you can't fix. I'm sure it will be fine.

It's my understanding that a hit he didn't feel would be rare, since I'm sure that people who have one sense taken away have the others enhanced.

Ted, i seem to recall someone playing with someone in a wheelchair, on NerfHaven. Just because someone's handicapped doesn't mean they should be excluded. If someone wants to do something, let them try to do it. More often than not, that person succeeds through determination.

No they succeed because people go out of their way to accommodate them at everyone's expense.

I agree with Ice. You all are going to hell.


Go fuck yourself asshole!


I do believe you said this to someone because they were being a dick and just messing around.

ON TOPIC: Zack (my friend) can talk some it's no problem getting a hold of someone else for a hand. The BIGGEST problem I can foresee now is other nerfers trying to get his attention when they need a hand in a tight situation.

Also he's not a tool, he's actually pretty straight forward. Maybe the most normal guy I've ever met, well except for being deaf.
