Things to expect:
  • Objective based games, such as Carpe Testiculum, VIP, Defend the Core, CTF and others.
  • A great location
  • Cool people
  • Cool weather, good for physical activity
  • Pump Action Crossbows and hopper clips
Things not to expect
  • Deathmatch (though we will probably warm up with a round of Meatgrinder)
  • Pistol rounds
  • Humans vs Zombies
  • Good dart fit. Make your darts thicker than you think they should be.
My standard war rules will apply:

Slug darts only, no blaster bans, no melee, no shields, no barrel taps, wear eye protection




Allowed Ammo:

  • Slug darts
  • Any type of stock ammo
Ammo which must be reviewed by the war host:

  • Darts with some sort of padded tip. If they are comparable to Slug darts in terms of pain and safety, I will allow it. Craft foam padding is okay.
  • Weird ammo. Examples: homemade arrows, iron man launcher ammo, or any other sort of projectile that you might come up with. If it is safe and fun, I will allow it.
Disallowed Ammo:

  • Traditional Stefans with hot glue domes. These hurt like hell.
  • Darts with very heavy weights in them. Example: ¼ slingshot weights are okay for megas, but not cool with micros. Use common sense.
Blasters:

  • Generally speaking, I don't ban blasters. Singled Titans, Hopper clips, HPA tanks, converted water guns, homemade airguns, etc. are all cool with me. That said, don't be an idiot.
  • Don't paint your blaster black. We get enough shit from cops already.
  • "Pistols" are one-handed blasters that shoot under 65ft, and must be re-primed after every shot. An exception is made for doubleshots, because they're cool. I don't expect to play a pistol round, though.
Other stuff:

  • Eye protection is required during play, no exception.
  • Melee weapons are not allowed.
  • Shields are not allowed.
  • Barrel taps are not allowed. You must actually shoot your opponent, or ask them to take the hit (e.g., if they're out of ammo and you don't want to shoot them at very close range).
  • Gun hits count. Ricochets do not.
Game rules:

  • Game rules constantly change, so I won't be writing them down.
  • We'll democratically decide what game to play next, and what rules to use. "Democratically" means "I will listen to what everyone wants, but ultimately I make the decision"

A Hymn for MN nerfers:

So far away we wait for the day
For the lights are so wasted and gone
We feel the pain of a lifetime lost in a thousand days
Through the fire and the flames… WE CARRY ON!!!

I am IN for teh W1N!!!

The Difference:
-Guns shoot bullets that kill people
-Blasters shoot darts that tag people

I do not play with guns.

Ryan reminded me that we had a build night planned for the 9th of October, so we may need to re-schedule. Also, Mano is the weekend of the 16th. Not sure when would be a good time to do this. Maybe the 25th of September?

I'm already scheduled to work that day but I'll try and get out of it. I think one of the keys to having good war attendance is enough warning before a war, not just a week.....

Absolutely, but scheduling conflicts forced my hand. I'll make a separate thread soon for the Halloween war.

We could also do this on the 26th (Sunday) if that helps out scheduling.

Ya know how they say the third times the charm? It might be. So far, if my memory serves me right, I don't work, but my little bro has a track meet, so I'm going to try to convince scott to share a ride with me. maybe. I know we'll make the Halloween war work at all costs.

I should be able to make this since it's on Sunday, nothing to get over a post-friends-birthday-party hangover like going out and nerfing!

Oh.......it's on Sunday. I'll try and make it to at least part of it, hopefully I'll get enough homework done ahead of time. Having it on Sunday is bittersweet for me but I'll try and make it work.

Your a fucking Sophomore. The only homework you should have is trying to be less socially awkward.

If there is anything we have an excess of, it is usable primaries. I can also return your damn sweater.

Saturday's weather is looking crappy, but Sunday's is looking awesome. Go me!
