Darts:
-Most of the ammo will be provided by us. These will most likely be predominantly molded silicone dome darts. More information on these can be found here and here. These either require special hoppers, or cornstarch to feed. We'll have a giant bag of corn starch so you don't have to worry about bringing it.
-You're welcome to bring your own darts as long as they are either the aforementioned dome darts, AMIORS, or some sort of soft ammo not containing metal or other hard substances(hot glue too). If they are pink foam make sure they're distinguishable from ours. Obviously the more darts the better so bring darts if you can.
-Stock darts (unmodified) is obviously allowed. Kane has a large stash of dart tag darts you'll be able to use.
-Mini marshmallows are allowed as long as it's a fresh unopened package. We plan on having many HAMPs for these. If you want to use marshmallows, bring some 1/2" thinwall to use as a clip.
-If you have something unique please check will us before the war to see if they're cool.

What to bring:
-Nerf/non-nerf blasters are allowed, but homemades are generally what most people use. If you don't have anything, we'll have extras to loan out.
-Eye Protection, if you're not wearing any, you don't play. We'll also probably have loaner glasses but don't count on it.
-Snacks. We won't be doing the typical schedule by having a lunch break in the middle of the war. You'll probably get hungry as you play, so bring something to munch on. Make sure you show up having already ate.

What not to bring:
-Slug darts, Glue domes, or any non-approved ammo.
-Air guns with an air tank larger than a Big Blast unless using them with multiple barrels. All blasters must have working over-pressure release valves. Bike pumps do not count. Homemade air guns will probably be determined on a case-by-case basis, but honestly I've never seen one that is worth using or legal.
-Springers should have less than 7" of draw assuming 1 1/4" PVC is your plunger tube. This really depends on the efficiency of your blaster so there will be some discretion by myself or Kane to determine what is or isn't safe. If it's any more powerful than a +bow you can guarantee it'll be banned.
-Blasters that are painted black or realistic looking gun-stuff. It's Nerf, not milsim.
-Kids who are 13 years old must have their parent(s) present the entire time they are participating.

General Gameplay Rules
-A hit is defined as some legal projectile, fired from a player that is "alive" and wearing eye protection, strikes a player or a player's blaster.
-Melee weapons can be used to block darts, but not large ammo. Anything larger than a dart tag dart is large ammo.
-Shields are allowed on a case-by-case basis, and only with the specific weapon that I approve it to be used with. Most melee/shield combos will be approved, few blaster/shield combos will be approved. Like swords, shields cannot block large ammo.
-Darts must be fired from a blaster of some sort (I'm pretty flexible on the definition of "blaster" here--blowguns are fine) to be considered legal projectiles, but large ammo can be thrown.
-When hit, players must acknowledge the hit (a wave or verbal acknowledgement works here), and promptly return to the respawn point. Players may pick up ammo if it's on the way back, but are expected to make a reasonable effort not to obstruct players on either team.


Miscellaneous Information:
-No Deathmatch (you won't have to sit out)
-Barrel tapping is not allowed.
-Do not pick up or move mobstacles during a round, unless otherwise noted. These will be staked in this year.
-There are no bathrooms at the site.
-There is no where to poop so don't ask the neighbors if you can poop there.

Gametypes
-Carpe Testiculum
-Meatgrinder
-Defend the Core
-VIP
-Others...

There will be variations of the games we're playing but this is a good thread to read if you're new.

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

BEFORE YOU LEAVE - Clean up all your shit and help pick up darts. Tearing down and setting up mobstacles is always appreciated.

It's up to you. As long as their isn't any hot glue, metal, or any other hard stuff involved it should be fine.

The Difference:
-Guns shoot bullets that kill people
-Blasters shoot darts that tag people

I do not play with guns.

Basically the same stuff that we find acceptable on dart heads on 1/2" foam.

I'm not coming.

All of this will be for sale at the war. You can reserve stuff now by prepaying and picking it up at the war. I also have a stock splitfire for sale as well.

If anyone going to the war has access to these exact kind of plastic clothespins shown in the picture (in any color), I would purchase 5 off of you there, just name your price.

Also, I'm looking to buy some clear 1/2" PVC at the war. I would like two 1-foot segments, just name your price.

Alright guys, only a few days left until the war. Don't forget the war is at 1:00 PM. Make sure you also plan on bringing snacks, because we won't be taking a break for food.

The weather actually looks nice, but make sure to bring sunscreen and bug spray. There is hardly any shade on the site. If you have one of those pop-up tents, bring that shit if you can.

People on the fence, you should state now if you're coming or not. We have only about 1200-1500 dome darts for everyone to use so we will plan on using mini marshmallows heavily. We should have a good amount of blasters to fire these, but if you want your stuff to fire them, all your need is a 1/2" thinwall clip. Stuff with high volume (HAMPs), will work well with marshmallows.

Also very important...We'll be doing DTC round similar to how SonReece runs his in Minnesota. Make sure you bring stock firing and big ammo stuff.
