The reason we use slugs was explained like...two years ago. Plusbows shooting domed darts to the face from 15 feet away will probably change your opinion.
THIS IS AN UPDATE POST PLEASE READ ALL OF IT, THANK YOU.
I do know completely what you mean and I agree that it is going to hurt.
I am really still debating wether or not we leave this a testing war for darts. At this point I have it as slugs are optimal but I was leaning towards anything aloud (except douch darts with spikes and needles) so that if the single/double/slingshot weights are to heavy and hurt to much we can limit it for the next war.
Also on the cool side, it looks as if we are going to have a pretty decent turnout if the confirmed come and even half the maybes and there are the occational ones that just show up.
Like I said, try to show up (if possible) at around 9:45 ...AM... so that we can go over the few rules and start rolling at around 10-10:15. Once about 6 or more people show up we will probably start the first round.
