CANCELED- North Bay Junior League Campout June 23rd-26.

Making Weapons



The Basic Broadsword- There are many ways to create a safe boffer weapon but here at FanWar we emphasize safety first and do not allow any weapons that are simply "padded" sticks, as though they may seem like they wouldn't hurt, when you get into the thick of it, you will find you swing harder then you mean to and we like to ensure that even in a sticky situation, no one get's injured. Thus, we have developed serveral reliable designes that work well. Usually the weapons loose reliable safety as they move towards more realistic looks, so if you are looking for a realy safe weapon, you may have to sacrifice some of it's good looks.


Videos on Building Weapons:

(Video courtesy of Sandy Kelly- thank you SO much!)

The Old Standard- These old weapons served us for many years and are the best suited for games with younger players who may not be able to control their swing force, as they offer a great deal of padding. Simple to make, you only need bamboo staves (1/2 inch diameter), Pipe Insulation (3/4 inch) and Duck Tape (300 mil). These swords are built either with a three chambered design (shown furthest to the left) or with a slightly more challenging but thinner two chambered blade.

Modular PVC Cell Foam Design- A far cry from the old two and three chambered types FanWar weapons, these awesome block foam bladded weapons not only are much more realistic and effective, but they come appart at the hilt for easy storage and versatility, allowing you to put ANY blade on ANY hilt, staff, or handle!!! Incredibly useful for the FanWar enthusiast who is like to play multiple roles in a single event, these weapons still have a tang that runs the length of the hilt for maximum control. Highly recommended.

Mastercraft Modular Block Foam Design- These awesome weapons have only recently been perfected and are still in playtest. They are inredibly light and fast, can be drawn easily and look awesome. If you can master everything else on this page, take a shot at these beauties.

Today will be remembered in Roekron history. Sorikonia came very close to being taken over by the combined fores of the Shadowlands and the Dark City, and it the end, the masters made a choice in the battle to end the war their way rather than risk a greater danger.
See the forums for the details....

All friends have limited pacifism (the good kind!) from outsiders.

Only active within yen miles of an outsider, the rest if the time it's just a master crafted staff, nothing special.
Only usable by Umi.

theifcat
[29 Sep : 11:47]
Sean made a elder sorcery that enchanted a staff with instant exercisim touch and the staff is staff touch and some othere stuff that i forget. one flaw is that it only is a magic item when outsiders are around (demons, no problem there)

The Warden
[29 Sep : 03:47]
Wow how did you guys get ahold of something/someone that dose that? Also Yay

theifcat
[28 Sep : 15:02]

Gabriel told me that you had sent some hounds out to find Fire Earth. There were 5 of them, a deathcap toadstool, two dragonflys one nature one life and two fling vetrabarian snakes.

Terisio
[24 Sep : 01:48]
How do you know that they were Hounds? How many were there?

theifcat
[24 Sep : 00:43]
Fire Earth was under a giant whirlpool in the Blue reefs, oh and your hounds are polymorfed into flying snakes, dragonflys etc..... on a ship that reflects the sun REALLY brightly (sun earth) although the demon isnt there himself (i think its a he) and im not sure where the boats headed because we hightailed out of there before we could we destroyed

Terisio
[23 Sep : 22:59]
Where were they?

theifcat
[23 Sep : 21:12]
