I'm having another sweet NC war, y'all.

DATE: Oct. 30th

PLACE: Black Mountain Rec. Park. There will be a primary location and a backup, just in case The Man takes offense to our shenanigans.

DIRECTIONS: Recreation Park Drive, Black Mountain, NC. Google Maps should take you right to it.

THE BACKUP: 125 Bleachery Blvd., Asheville, NC. This will take you to a Super Wal-Mart. The park is directly adjacent to the lower edge of the parking lot.

GUN BANS: Fuck 'em. Don't bother bringing singled air howitzers, but I won't be banning anything on the basis of effectiveness.

DARTS: Slugs strongly preferred. If anyone fails too hard to use them, I'll tolerate single BBs.

AGE: I'm cool with people 14 or older. The one exception I'll make is for an older player who brings a younger sibling. This thing is going to be run a lot tighter than we're used to, and I don't want to have to run dwarf patrol all afternoon, especially since people's parents would be quite a ways away from the main site.

GAMES: We're gonna do very little standard stuff. I'm taking this war as an opportunity to play using different scoring systems, so expect freeze tag, gunslinger variants, and Carpe, among others. And no, that doesn't mean CtF or zombies.

Depending on the location, we may be moving around between fields quite a bit (one loc. has like 4-6 fields we could use), so don't bring every damn gun you own. Stick to a reliable primary, a pistol with a holster, and a sackful of darts, with spare guns left in the car. This isn't going to be a gunshow type war, anyway, since the rounds we will be playing will tend to put everyone out of commission at the same time, instead of spreading the process out over 30 minutes. And make sure you have about twice as many darts as you think you'll need. we'll be playing very fast-paced rounds, and some of them may be in areas that are not conducive to 100% dart recovery.

I won't have darts for people, but I will try to make up a handful of loaner spring cannons, so don't let your crappy guns keep you from attending.

ATTENDANCE:

Rork+2-3
Soccerbeast
KrazyKade+2
Chain
flash-gordon (validating)+4-7
Asideofnerf+1


BLACKLISTED:
FlyingChicken
The Old Guy
Nerkum
Nerfomania
Umpa
ZAX

I see what you did there.
I'd vote for the Nov 6 date.

I don't want to have to run dwarf patrol all afternoon.


That's highly unlikely, since

Goddammit, you can't do anything these days without oppressing some sort of minoritah. I suppose I could institute a Beard Rule, to avoid discriminating against Nerf Dwarves. No one under 3 1/2' tall, unless they're sporting a lush facial accessory, and maybe an axe. No melee, though. On that I shall remain firm!

Protest.

We can't do the 6th. The 30th is more preferable for us, just saying...

For anyone's parental/transportative units who have better things to than sit around in the parking lot: both locations are on the Swannanoa River, which is a hatchery-supported trout stream, and daily licenses are cheap. Black Mountain (3 minutes away) offers great shopping/wandering around opportunities, as does Asheville (15-20 minutes).

For lunch, there are fast food places within a few minutes, and the backup location is immediately adjacent to a Super Wal-Mart, which has a deli and a McDonald's. If we use the Rec. Park, however, I strongly suggest packing a cooler with water and sammiches, since i plan on taking a decidedly minimal lunch break. The weather will be MUCH cooler than has been the case for Augusta wars. Bring a jacket.

Attendance updated. We're looking at a pretty good-sized war here, guys. October 30th is the date. Be there or be no better than a communist.

Sorry Comrades, but we're not going to be able to make it either. I'm hoping the situation improves so we can go to TN next month.

And Nerfomania, sorry to hear of your accident - hope you get better soon.

Tentative round stuff:

We'll start out with a FFA, to get everybody moving.

Carpe! While we're fresh!

Gunslinger.

2-Team Gunslinger.

Freeze Tag.

Defend the Core, maybe.

Pistols Deathmatch.

Dart Sweep.

We'll play a few rounds, see what works, and play more of what people like.

As for lunch, there are plentiful fast food options and grocery stores nearby, or you could just pack a delicious sammich. I would prefer to avoid the whole "people leaving for 45 minutes" thing, because lunch is gonna be short, and you should be thinking light, anyway.

Bring moneys, y'all. I'm liquidating a bunch of my collection, so look forward to a Yaris packed with goodies. That is all.

EDIT: Locations are up.

SUPER LAST MINUTE BUMP!

I'll see you fellas on the field. If anyone has any last-minute news/suggestions/outbackery, lay it on me.

EDIT: I'll be on the field a bit before 10, and we'll start when we have enough people for it to be interesting. Safe travels.

I'll edit in my recap later, but the guys that didn't come to this missed out big time. Probably the best Southern war ever.

EDIT: TEH RECAP

+This war rocked. Majorly.
+Flash's crew was fantastic. Thanks for coming out, dudes.
+Woods rounds
+Good field
+CARPE!
+Man, chain leveled up big time. Little people are wicked hard to hit.
+HOPPERS ALL OVER THE DAMN PLACE
+Guns were awesome. They consisted of hoppered SNAPs, hoppered BBBBs, and an RSCB'd Lanard shotgun that worked surprisingly well. Props.
+Freeze tag is the new Deathmatch. Seriously, there's no reason to play 3/15 in a world that has freeze tag in it.
+Carpe was awesome, with primaries. SCORE.
+Gunslinger is surprisingly easy to adapt to a 2-team format.
+Super sportsmanship. Not one real issue all day. This war set a pretty high bar in that regard.
+Civvies thought our shenanigans were cool.
+Did I mention that EVERY GUN HAD A HOPPER ON IT?
+^Seriously, that's like 20 times more fun than whatever else you might be using. we're talking a full foot of clip, with another foot of extension. Absolutely no issue.
+Swappable hoppers actually working
+Getting taken out by a shotgun for the first time ever
+Getting some sweet kills, along with pretty much everyone.
-Commies.
