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.
