Cash for hitting people…

I wonder, next spring, if I should plunk down 80 bucks for the possibility of making a grand in one day?

Would Happycrow beat up people with a wooden sabre for money?  Oh, you betcha…

Of course, Technogypsy might come out with his spear, and then I’m screwed.  But, still.  Could I take sabre against the longsword people?  I think so… and in continuous action where you’re not being separated, it’s all about “get past the spear.”  Might be do-able.

    Well, technically, I’d have to go back for the grand championship, so it’d be two days… but still, that’s hard to beat, right?

    Yep, indeed. And it’s in Tyler too…I’d say go for it.

  4. The rules seem to ignore armor, though. That’s not great.

  5. I don’t mind that at all. The only thing that gives me pause is the restriction against head-shots, as it gives a serious rules advantage to the shield and two-weapon guys, and critically handicaps the stave and polearm users.

    Can I use a rifle if I mount a bayonnet on it? I promise not to load it.

  7. It’s pre-1700 with no head-shots, but i could get you a real awkward spear if you like…

  8. yeah, definitely go for it…

    That’s no fun. How about a trebuchet?

    Or a ballista?
    OOOH OOOH I know. I want plague ridden blankets. I’ll always win with those. 🙂

    rifle with bayonet would be a spear with a club stock. Might not be bad, really. How will you curve the wood to get the effect of a sabre?

    Simple. I’ve got to trim my plum and peach trees anyway. Start with a stick that has a curve, then carve it into a sabre. Traditional, and you always have the grain you want.

    Otherwise, take a bokken, modify the curve, and then cut it out corner by corner with a bandsaw after having taken the wood over the joiner first. More work, fancier product.

  13. Does this involve bloodletting? If not, and it’s in Tyler, we might make it a field trip 😉

  14. Shouldn’t be any bloodletting at all: if you break a bone or draw blood, you’re instantly disqualified.

  15. COOOL. Keep us in the know. Sounds like a LOT of fun!

    Checked the website and have notified my hs group. I really hope you go for it!
