At last count, Gears, JLego and I were definites, and Chops and Crankymonky are almost positive they won't be able to make it. Looks like we're driving in at the moment.

Can't say I'm enthused about melee and shields. Shields/melee is to Langley as Deathmatch is to KaneTheMediocre. I would prefer that it be limited to a few rounds if we're going to do it at all, with very specific rules regarding what is allowed and how it can be used. I'm not driving halfway across the country with a trunk full of foam sticks just to have it all banned when I arrive.

Me+2 as a maybe.
Will you be selling pink foam there? Or better yet, your awesome check valve plunger heads?

Most likely no to either, definitely no to the latter. You'll have to ask Kane about the foam but my guess is he won't be selling any.

Can't say I'm enthused about melee and shields. Shields/melee is to Langley as Deathmatch is to KaneTheMediocre.

I'm not driving halfway across the country with a trunk full of foam sticks just to have it all banned when I arrive.

We'll work on this but I can assure you not many people use shields or melee nor has it ever been a problem. I don't really like it myself either.

Put me down +1. Are you selling foam at the war? Is there going to be a dart stash?

See first question. We won't have a communal dart stash.

Some number of Sex Dwarves are trying to attend. Currently myself, JWasko, and Sleepy. We are all tentative currently. We need to figure out transportation and lodging, and any help with the latter would be greatly appreciated.

It would be cool if you guys came. I personally don't have anywhere for people to stay as I'm hosting the other east coast guys, otherwise I'd help.

Critical question on blaster power: will UMB's be allowed with stock OPRV's? I'm not sure how big they are compared to a Mega Mis.

I'm curious, too. UMBs are quite a bit bigger, though.

I'm imaging the primary purpose of that ban is to rid the field of 4Bs, Super Soakers, and the rest of the I-hate-exercise blasters, but I don't want to put words into the mouths of Kane and Ryan here. I want to put other things in, instead.

My understanding is that the whole occasion will be intensley heterosexual.


The only way it could be more intense is if we were actually camping.

Can't say I'm enthused about melee and shields. Shields/melee is to Langley as Deathmatch is to KaneTheMediocre. I would prefer that it be limited to a few rounds if we're going to do it at all, with very specific rules regarding what is allowed and how it can be used. I'm not driving halfway across the country with a trunk full of foam sticks just to have it all banned when I arrive.

We've never really had specific rules about melee, and shield rules haven't really been needed in the past. Basically if you're using an awesome blaster, there is no chance you get a shield, even a small one. If you're using a stock nerf blaster, or something that blows, a shield about 2 sq/ft is what we would consider to be reasonable. When we're actually playing, if someone is using something that's giving them a distinct unfair advantage, we'll ask them to put it down or switch to a more weaksauce blaster.

As far as melee, the only rules are that it has to be padded sufficiently. If you have any of the nerf brand stuff, it's a good measure to wrap it in pipe insulation since they're so hard (twss). Again, ridiculous shit will be banned as well.

I haven't been in favor of shields or melee ever but no one really uses it out here and I don't think you really need to worry about it effecting gameplay significantly. Big ammo (anything bigger than a mega), will destroy shields. People generally just get ruined who use melee and I really don't have any remorse for people bringing a sword to a gun fight. Most people will be using modern nerf stuff, but if they have incredibly weaksauce stuff, a shield can be appropriate.

These are what our rules have been in the past, and what we will loosely follow.

Shield Rules:

Melee = 3 sq/ft
Single shot pistol, ranges < 50' - 2 sq/ft
Anything else, ranges < 50' - 1 sq/ft
Blasters shooting over 50' will not be allowed to use a shield.


Cuz a Minnasota Nerf party eats your FACE!

Critical question on blaster power: will UMB's be allowed with stock OPRV's? I'm not sure how big they are compared to a Mega Mis.

UMB's are fine by me, as long as they have the stock OPRV and the stock pump. I distinctly remember UMBs that diddled people's faces similar to 4Bs at a war. Literally.

Got my plane ticket. See you fuckers at the war.

Fuck yeah labia face!

=================

For all of those who have inquired about lodging:

Hotwire is a great site for booking hotels if you don't care the name of the place you're staying. The war is likely to be held out in Yorkville (60560), which is ~30-45 minutes from my place (aka middle of nowhere). People who are cool enough to hang out with us should stay in the immediate area (Lombard/Downers Grove 60148) for shenanigans and whatnot before and after the war, *cough* Minnesota and Pitts guys *cough*

Hotwire

Search places around 60148, and find the cheapest. Most hotels around here are perfectly fine (I don't live in diddle town), so cheaper the better. If you can get the Doubletree, it's pretty much across the street from my neighborhood.
