Only true fans will understand what you mean. We shall never speak of this on a public thread again.

Thank the gods for small favors lol.  It was a good book, but I need not say more to you about it to get my point across I'm sure.

Only a few words need to be said to set off a fan. But I will spare everyone else on the thread.

Again, it is truly appreciated Vaulera for not tempting fate and speaking said words aloud here lol.  As much as I love R.A. Salvatore, after the Ghost King's debacle I wanted him to be damned to the darkest and deepest circle in the Nine Hells AND the Abyss lol.

Which is why I was specific with what could harm them then first time! :-(

It's a good point - maybe the weapons have to be both medieval style and individually hand-forged by a smith, instead of machine-produced?

I'd go with that Glyph buddy.  There are still places in the world that do that kind of thing I'm sure, and if it's necessary I'm sure someone in this world we're making would do the same if it meant the survival of their warriors lol.

Maybe you could steal them from the deadliest warrior armory.

Lol, now there's a thought.  I LOVE that show myself.  I didn't think I'd meet another fan on here though.

I only watched it because I have brothers. The testing is cool but I think the re-enactments are silly. Yeah right Napolean, get off your horse to duel him with your CAVALRY SABER.

DW is great, but I wouldn't be caught dead taking anything they demonstrate with (the actual weapons, that is) onto a battlefield...or taking any of their 'results' to be trustworthy eithe.

I said that because they hire an actual blacksmith to make the weapons to their real battle standards.

Do they? Okay, that's a bit more relative respectability than I thought the show had. I suppose they would be viable then.

Do the medieval weapons have to be from a certain region like England, or could they be from another place, for example an Egyptian Kopesh  which was also an ancient weapon?

That's up to LH.

My take (if it were my Ban) would be 'no', though, since the point of the Ban is to be as much symbolically metaphysical as literal - daggers and knives were frequently used as medieval weaponry, but a knife wouldn't (or shouldn't) qualify for the Ban even if it was individually forged, since it's a eating utensil before a weapon. Since he's drawing off European mythology for the 'draconic' inspiration, it'd be European weaponry - swords, axes, maces, flails - that would qualify.

Are we still looking for demons? I am curious because if so i might have some other people from my first thread up for it.

That would be indeed a much more reasonable ban since well everyone seems to be carrying melee weapons. :-) My poor lizards would be decimated.

It's official then.

So, threads - I'm thinking one OOC thread for character sheets and discussion, one Squad IC thread for missions and downtime, and one Demon IC thread for plotting/scheming/torturing of captives. Now I just need to work out a hook for the initial mission.

Sounds good to me and maybe a hostage situation of some sort?  And not just anyone either but someone high profile like a senator and his family or something lol.  Just a quick idea, take it or leave it.

That's a possibility, though why that person would have been on Honsou in the first place is hard to explain. I think I'm just going to go with a milk-run info gathering session...Honsou is a newly targeted zone, with unknown inhabitants. Go in, take some captives, extract them for study.

Eh, whatever floats your boat I say and you do have a point regarding why they would be there to begin with.  Alrighty, we'll start small and go up from there then.   ;D

I beg to differ LH, as I stated previously, my only weapons and specialties lie in the Steven Seagall department.
