Does Anyone Happen To Have A Screenshot Or...

27 July 2005 - 02:23 PM

...anything that showed the forums from way back on NerfOnline before the NO-XForums merger?

I'd appreciate it greatly... A screenshot image would work, maybe a saved page of the forums?

Hmmm, I Might Come Back To Nerf...

Now, could anyone fill me in on what's happened while I was away? (NH-wise and Nerf-wise generally)...

I'm considering either coming back to Nerf, Paintball, or both...after sitting away idling, and being stupid and spending most of my time on the damn waste of time called school...

Looks like Ompa's made some progress, and I see Cx has worked abit, too... I'll browse around...

Time... A very weird and confusing matter. I'm not even going to get further into it...

...Because our "hijacked" topic was stopped, this'll be here.

First off, is time travel possible? If it is, then why aren't we overrun by time travelers from the future? Two possibilities (I forgot the third)...
1. They're hiding among us
2. Time travel just isn't possible

Feel free to discuss... Hm, I should stop playing so much Diablo II and start studying these things.


The History Of Nerf

28 March 2004 - 08:04 PM

I'm deciding whether or not to write up a history of the Nerf community which has been online for years. Anybody interested in this before I go writing up stuff for nothing? I'll start from the development of 'modified' Nerf and the first message boards, and end up somewhere around here,

And another simple question... NIC is Nerf Internet Community, correct?

Hello and thanks.

Nerf In Larping

29 February 2004 - 01:51 PM

I've decided to come up with an idea to incorporate Nerf in LARPing.

For those who don't know what a LARP is, LARP stands for Live-Action Role Playing. Essentially, it is an MMORPG or regular RPG (like EverQuest, Neverwinter Nights, Diablo II, etc), but in real life. You choose your character class, race, skills, stats, etc., but you act out the character, which is where role-playing comes in. Just think of EverQuest in real life; you are the character. You don't need to go "dang, if that was in real life, I would've blocked it" or stuff like that; you can. Any little noise can give awa your position, you can yell wildly and charge at someone to actually create an effect. There are, however, regulations. You can't bring in a real katana and start chopping peoples' heads off, or bring in a medieval heavy ballista or catapult... The objects that physically come into contact with people are foamed up, with pipe insulation foam (around 1/2"-2" thick). Arrows are very heavily regulated, and as are throwing weapons. For more information on LARPing, check Larp.com or Knight Realms. Of course, while in the game, try to make it as real as possible.

Well, in which Nerf comes in... If anyone here has played Phantasy Star Online or any other game in which you have people shooting each other while others wield swords and knives, there you go. The guns will be integrated in the game (obviously the setting will be fantasy-like), and fairly... No one-shot-kill, because then everyone would revert to use Nerf guns for their power. Of course, certain classes need a higher attribute to wield a gun; you can't have a lv1 Mage wield a rifle, for example.

My friend and I are trying to make this happen... We might also add in an unusual effect- turn-based battles. Normally in a LARP, you have people hacking away at each other in real time... With a turn-based system, skills and spells will be more effective, and battles will be more organized... No more "that arrow hit you!", or "you missed me!".

Anyways, I'd just like to spark peoples' imaginations, on what to do for a next Nerf war, or possibly even create a whole LARP with Nerf integrated into it.

Have fun! And please, feel free to comment/suggest anything...
