Can my friend use 1/4 slingshot weights with heavy duty felt pads for the tips

To be honest, I really wouldn't want him using them, since it may sway the game towards him a bit, but if they're the only darts he has, then I guess I may be able to make an exception....are they Mcmaster felt pads? Pictures/weight measurements would be nice.

Im' gonna have to say no for now, since I've bannd all slingshot darts for everyone else. Also, those felt pads look like they wouldn't pad very much. Can your friend whip up some other darts before the war date? If it's ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE, I may mae an exceptionl, since we want as many people to come and have fun as possible.

Lol, we are banning 3/0s under fishing weights...sorry!
However, if he can get the 3/0 under a Mcmaster pad or at least 2-3mm of craft foam, I'll allow it. If he wants to use domes, can he use copper BBs? That's probably the best way to go. I don't know about 3/0s under those Lowes pads, though. How soft are they?

So I was talking to Phree and some other people on the irc trying to decide which date would work better and the brilliant bob gave us a great idea. His idea was that we should have 2 wars. One on the 16 would be the "Big One" and the one on the 23rd would be the "Aftermath". Both wars would be at the same location/time ect. So I wanted to know if we would have enough people who would be able to come to both wars or even one of the two wars. If you don't want to come to the one on the 16th, then you can come on the 23rd and its the same the other way around. So what do you guys think?

Uhrrr....I guess that's a good idea! I could prollly come/host both of them. I think this would totally work, as long as there are enough people.

Would you guys be interested in melee rounds? If so, would swords be of interest? I plan to, if you guys want me to, start making a batch of pipe insulation/pool noodle/PVC swords to be the official "DCNF swords," and I'll just bring them to each war, so we can play with them. However, if you want to buy one, I can make/sell you one for a few bucks, and it can be your personal sword. If not, you can just "rent"/use them for free @ DCNF wars. However, I may need for everyone to pitch in 2-3 bucks for materials cost for the group sword supply, since I don't have unlimited moneyz..:P.

Do you guys even wanna do a group sword arsenal? We could just do "everyone makes their own, if they want one, and I can always contract/make them for people"? I'm afraid that, if we do it like that, some people would have to sit the melee rounds out, just 'cause they don't have a sword. Or we could just do "everyone who wants to makes their own sword, and anyone who doesn't have one can borrow one from me, for a few dollars(a few dollars gets you the sword as a loaner for all the wars).

I don't think this will work out that great but this is what I had posted before...

Ok this might sound stupid but I think it might be fun to try out. While I was searching the web, I came across these rubber throwing stars and said, "Hey this might be something new and fun that we could possibly try out!). I know some of you people would be saying, "Wouldn't this poke someone's eye out or make someone bleed?" well that's what I thought at first too, but the cool thing about these is that they are safe to throw at people and can be used indoors, so they will not poke someone's eye out (Safety glasses mandatory if you participate in that round) and these will not dent a wall and can barely punture cardboard from 10-15ft so this star will not "hurt like shit". If you guys are interested in doing this, I can get them for us for $1.50 each. So if I get enough people who want to try this out, I'll order some and we can see how well they work. I'll sell them at the war for $1.50 each if you want to play that round (You get to keep them after the war) and if you don't want to try this out, we will have another game like gunslinger going on in another part of the area. Let me know what you guys think about this (If you think is a stupid idea, please let me know, I'm just trying to find something new and fun to try out). Here is a pic-

Edit: I will be adding FBR to all of the edges of these just for more safety.

After talking to a couple people, people seem to like the idea. I need to know an estimate of how many stars each person will buy so I can start ordering (Personally I would recommend getting 3 or more, the limit is 5 per person). Also, I am low on funds right now and will not have enough money to order the stars so I need someone who has money and can attend on the 23rd to pay for now and I'll split half of the money at the war (The person will get 2 free stars). Thanks for the input guys!

Edit: This will be a special round that will only be played on the 23rd so don't just attend the 16th and skip the 23rd! The Aftermath will be a blast with these stars!

Sounds good Sharvil!
We still need more people to confirm for both dates! If you've confirmed for the 16th, please see if you can come to the aftermath as well! I'll edit the OP to reflect the 2 wars as soon as we get more confirmed people for the 23rd.

Also, when I begin to make swords (maybe next week?), I will start with one for myself (obviously), and begin making 6-8 for the DCNF arsenal, if that's how you guys wanna do it. Anyone can borrow swords to use @ DCNF wars from the arsenal, and just give it back @ the end.
However, you can definetely use your own swords, whether they are homemade or Nerf N-Force swords. If you want me to make you a sword, just PM me and I'll do it for a few bucks. I can also, if you guys want, bring a few premade "contracts" to the war (as in not for the arsenal, but for sale [but not designated for any one person yet]), and you guys can check 'em out, and buy them if you so wish. If you contract one from me, I can personalize it by writing your name/drawing symbols on it as well.

I might also do knives...
Would you guys be interested in having sword only rounds, as well as sword+blaster rounds, or just one of them?
Would you guys like to have melee (as in swords and knives) @ both wars? Or only one? Or neither?

You can also bring/make/use your own craft foam swords or knives or whatever-those are allowed.

No one is interested in the stars? For only a dollar fifty, it's a great deal! I'll only order if I get atleast 5 stars wanted.

In my opinion, this is almost too much effort put into too few minutes of game play. I am going to want to do only a few rounds with melee, and even fewer with the stars compared to the vast majority of the games which I would like to play with my dart blasters.

In short, it is a good idea, but for the effort and money involved it may not be worth the small amount of time they will actually be in use. (This also applies to the swords you are making unless you enjoy it, and were going to make them anyway)

Thanks for the input. Personally, I was gonna make a sword for myself to play with either way, and I thought that it may be a good idea to have melee rounds @DCNF. We could also do melee+blaster rounds, to make things more fun. However, if you guys are against having melee, I'm ok with that.

Ok guys! I'm bumping this thread now that we're 16 days out from the first DCNF! We still have a few things to take care of:

-Do you guys wanna have melee? We could just have melee built in to the day- as in you can use melee in any of the rounds (unless otherwise specified), and they can count as weapons, as well as blasters...and we just won't have melee-only rounds.
-Who else can make the Aftermath on the 23rd? WE NEED ATTENDENCE CONFIRMED!
-Be sure to check out the DCNF trading thread; It'll be sure to make you drool!
-What game types do you guys wanna do, besides Gunslinger, Defend the Core (Blitz will be supplying the core, thanks Blitz!), TDM, CTF, Every-man-for -themself DM, and pistol rounds?

Hope you guys are all makin' lots 'o darts! :P
I'll start updating you guys/checking on the weather as the date gets a little closer (probably when there's a week left till the war). However, it doesn't look like thie beautiful Maryland sun will be leaving us any time soon! :)

Since I'm late to the party, I doubt I'll matter, but I'm a 70% yes for the "Big One." It's also on my birthday, tehe. I probably won't make the Aftermath, though.
