I might be able to bring "assorted slugs," to sell at low prices, since they are not standardized and likely old.

I'll see what I have in my apartment.

In Topic: Creating a NIC Biography

If you did want to do this, you will need to be careful to get accurately portray the development of the different nerf hotspots. It was mentioned that the South East is has exploded into a nerfing hotspot, but this is hardly new, the Random Encounter clan (of Alabama) had a forum presence in 2003.

Also, how nerf scenes develop is likely influenced by surrounding areas and certain individuals. For example, DC nerf as the NIC knows it only began after our interaction with other nerfers at the first ECNO (in Delaware). It originally became popular due to a large number of people and has since been "reborn" by a new group of individuals.

To accurately create a history/biography, you will have to talk to many first hand sources, not relying solely on what is documented on the forums or what a single individual says.

Some topics that I would discuss are:

  • The Nerf Listserv
  • Nerf Online
  • NerfCenter
  • NerfHQ
  • NerfHaven
  • The LaMarios
  • Other websites that I'm not mentioning
  • The Four Horsemen, LCM, LGLF, countless other clans
  • The development of Nerfing locations (SoCal, NJ, Alabama, DC, Ohio, many other locations)
  • The development of nerf modding

Some resources you will find valuable will be the nerf wiki, which was originally hosted at NerfHQ and is still available here. It was then moved to ProjectNerf, available here. Additionally, TheGrinch's old website NerfWorld contains one of the best directories of older nerf websites. In my opinion, the most important ones that many people were not around for are The LaMario's, Yakman's site, Webbzter's site. There are also many clan sites linked as well as many of the older nerfer's websites. NerfWorld also has links to several Wayback Machine editions of websites that are no longer available, as well as some of the original Nerfaholics comics.

If you did take up this project, I would urge you to get perspective from many of the nerfers who have been around a while in order to break things up into "eras" and see what they consider significant. They also may have contact with other, now absent, nerfers.

Good luck and I look forward to seeing what route you take.

I'm 33.

You're number 23, don't worry, you were identified.

Got back to DC this evening, I had a great time at the war, thanks so much for putting together the war Cheerios, Ice9, Ryan, Kane, and Zorn. It was great to meet all the midwest Nerfers. It was absolutely great to finally meet Carbon, Ice9, and Venom and I had a blast hanging out with everyone. Cheerios, it was great to meet you and some of your family. I'd like to thank your family for organizing lunch, it ensured that we minimized lost time from lunch.

I really liked the objective based gameplay and look forward to incorporating it in a larger scale here in Washington DC. It was also a ton of fun to use a shield.

I hope everyone enjoyed nerfing with the LGLF, I know we loved coming out to the midwest.
