Does anyone mind if I host an Armageddon?



ARMAGEDDON XV: 2014

Date:
21 June 2014


Time:
9:00 to 4:00

Location:
Stanton Elementary School

725 S Vencino Dr
Glendora, CA 91740

Here's a Facebook link to the event, if you're into that. People not registered on NH are welcome to join.

Remember, using these locations is a privilege, not a right. Use the golden rule: Don't Be A Dick.

FAQ (FUCKING ANNOYING QUESTIONS)

Really?
Yes.

Where and when?
The war is 21 June, from 9:00 to whenever (usually 4:00, but later is not impossible). Location data is available above.

Dart?
Slugs and safer darts only. No metal is preferred but I understand that to maximize attendance while keeping it safe I need to keep this restriction more open. If you do make slugs, use #6 washers and not #8 washers. Use Ryan McNumbers' excellent guide available here if you plan on making slugs. If you use larger ammo, like megas or similar, keep them soft-tipped by the same guidelines as above.

Who?
Everyone is welcome to come, veterans and newcomers alike. I'm not going to outright ban people younger than 13 but if you are under 13 or plan on bringing someone who is, you are responsible for them all day and you are especially responsible for them remaining safe (hydrated and wearing eye protection). I will be running this war with the assistance of others (including, but not limited to, Ryan, Langley, and Apollo256).

What isn't allowed?
With dart restrictions, there isn't as much of a need for blaster regulations. Don't bring Titans shooting micro darts because that's just ridiculous. I and other war council advisors will spot-ban things if you are lasering dudes from a million miles away.

Blaster rules:

HOMEMADE AIRGUNS: If you are not Doom, please do not bring them.

TITANS: You may use them if they fire missiles (stock or Draconis or whatever) or balls. They must not be firing darts.

LBB/4B/UMB/SIMILAR: You may use them if they have the stock OPRV.

SUPER SOAKERS/SIMILAR: Do not bring them. If they shoot darts, they're too powerful. If they shoot water, then people get mad.

SCEPTORS: If you want to use a Sceptor, make it colorful. Make it look as little like a paintball gun as possible. Wrap the tank in denim or something. If you replace the tank or pump, the OPRV must be kept at the same pressure and the tank volume may not be made any larger (stock, is about 800cc).

SUPERMAXX 2000/5000/9000: Do whatever. I hope you don't blow up your tank.

MELEE WEAPONS: Don't bring anything larger than these.

SHIELDS: Hits on shields count as hits on you if you plan to use them. If you have a Manta Ray, ask me about using it the day of and I might get nostalgic enough to say yes. (UPDATE: I am nostalgic enough to allow Manta Rays with non-replaced internals.)

What gametypes?
Expect to play some carpe testiculum and related gametypes. There will probably be some quick-run deathmatch as well, to suit those people like Gears with a bloodlust that knows no bounds. There will be minimal team captain team picking to keep downtime short. SoCal will also introduce you at least one of its classic gametypes!

Anything else?
Bring lots of water. I'll probably end up picking up a pallet of water bottles as backup but it does get hot and you will probably be running around so expect to need to drink something.
Bring lots of sunscreen, because no one wants a sunburn now or skin cancer later.
Bring comfortable shoes. You will be running around.


If you have specific questions or concerns, PM me, or post them here, or whatever.

Before we stir up a huge haven wide war party, lets have ice9 weigh in on his 11yearold claim.

I would most likely attend.

I will do my best to attend. I'll have to see if I can crash on the couch at my buddy's house. He still owes me for not attending my wedding.

Now that ice9 has confirmed that this thing is actually happening, please confirm whether you are actually seriously going to attend, are merely considering coming out (a maybe) or if you were just screwing around because you thought this was a joke.

I am planning to fly out, put me on the definites list.

That... Sounds too rare to miss! It's a bit early to count me as a definite, but put me down as a very strong maybe.

Put me on the maybe list as well. It's a 10 hour drive, but I'd love to go.

As Panda said, I don't think there is a way to fight gravity without a guaranteed loss. You could use magnets, but no one knows how those things work except the Mormons.

Or lasers. You should integrate some lasers into your Nerf darts. Problem solved.

As I said earlier, count me in as a definite. Most SoCal wars are under an hour away from where I live so, unless something comes up I'll be there.
See y'all in a year!

I can most likely come, I live like 10 minutes away. The one problem is if my family's vacation conflicts with it.
