meh about a month and a half late but if anyone complains about day events at rag 25 they can blame me, I had to bail at rather last minute and left Magnus in a pretty crappy position. Not his fault, mine, and I felt awful about it.

So if anyone gives you crap Magnus or complains about that still, tell them to come whine to me.


Thank you for this, Bishop. I do hope one day to run fighting at Ragnarok in a way that does justice to the event, but I am sorry if anyone had a bad time two years ago as a result of the confusion and last-minute work that we had to deal with.

I am sure that Ducky, with an adequate amount of time to prepare, will be able to provide a much more enjoyable experience.

i had a great time. it was a bit too hot for me on the big field but i was really in to the night fighting closer to my camp. it was nice catching up with everybody. i heard 1600 in attendance? pretty big!

Post subject:  Re: Ducky Wants You to GO to RAG!!!

I was there. And the fighting (arching) was like shooting fish in very big barrel. I saw a lot of good clean fighting too and people in sweet * garb too. I'm going to try and go next year now.

Post subject:  Re: Ducky Wants You to GO to RAG!!!

Yes, 1600 in attendance is a big deal and a great showing. The heat was awful, but it was still a blast. Had fun seeing Forkbeard and Lillith, Tzigana and her kept archer Granifar, Peter-t-Q, and many other Belegrim on the fields.

And just so that you heard it here first, Ragnarok XXVIII will be June 23-30, 2013, with again the option to pre-register for a Saturday the 22nd arrival. Please note that while these are the dates approved by the Rag War Council, I'm not an official source so take this with several chunks of salt.

I've read nothing but great comments of folks' experiences on facebook. Glad to hear it was a resounding success.

I've never been, but is 1600 normal attendance? High/Low?

Post subject:  Re: Ducky Wants You to GO to RAG!!!

I think it may be a good average....coulda sworn we had a year over 2000

This was the official highest. The old record 1588 and we broke just over 1.6k (not sure of the exact, but its just over).

As Day Events again next year, I was wondering if you guys could please whine and moan about what was wrong and were we screwed up. Your complains are valid, but truly I can't do anything unless you provide me with constructuve ideas or suggestions.

I know tourneys were bad. There were trade off issues at the end right before Rag that ended up with us droppin the ball and printing something that wasn't accurate. We deeply apologize and will do due diligence in making sure that doesn't happen again.

I also heard too many fights were locked down into bridge fights or variations of. And once again water breaks took too long and fights were not on time. Alot of that has to do with the fighters themselves, but suggestions on how to mediate that would be nice.

Ducky you did a fantastic job, you ran yourself to death, and from what I'm told landed yourself in the medics tent. We appreciate you sacraficing your Rag so we can enjoy ours.

That being said, just like every Rag it felt like it took 20minutes of standing ready before layon gets called

The official number was 1617, including non-coms and minors.

Just checked the records and that is the largest Ragnarok ever. With next year being a week later, I expect that number to climb to around 2000.

Suggest no water breaks (let fighters water themselves), and establish a center circle. Call missile weapons to the center, everyone throws arrows to the middle, no more ten-minute arrow hunts.

Our rampage in the woods was the fighting highlight of the week. You sir, swing a mean stick!

I had a blast at Rag. Some of my highlights were:

Woods battles: I haven't done any in a long time, and while the capture the flag fights sometimes meant stand around and wait, it was still nice.

Castle battles: Seriously, I don't know why we just aren't in the castle at all times!?

Garb gate: I actually like this idea. My garb isn't the best in the world, but I try hard to make sure its good enough. I like the 'feel' of an event...Garb is one of the best ways to make sure this occurs.

Some issues:

Length between battles on the field. I fought for most of the day on Friday and the time between fights was crazy long. People were just hanging out and talking/sparring. Not regrouping or getting water.

Hold calls: Not too many holds were called but when they were called, it takes forever to get the word across to everyone. *AND* when the lay on was called, the fight would start in one area and not start in another until an arrow comes flying in. My suggestion would be to give the heralds whistles...Sure they aren't period, but if you hear a whistle you know to take a knee, and after the hold is over the 2nd whistle means to start fighting again.

Theft: My buddy Wick had his armor/arrows/bow stolen from him Saturday after all the fighting was over. Nothing that can really be done about this except keep your gear with you at all times...Its really sad that we can't trust one another.

Once again, thanks for running an awesome event. (this goes to Thrush for doing a great job of security as well! and to the many other people that were involved in the making and running of RAG.)

Thanks homie! We in Security agree, this was one of the best Rags yet, we barely had to do anything, good times!

Any chance of DC area Bel ever again?

I just don't know Thrush. We were doing pretty well for a while then real life got in the way for one or two of us, and then everything else just dried up. We've tried a few times but it almost seems silly to have another battle practice group when you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a dagorhir practice in the N. VA area.
However, if we do get it back on track, I'll be sure to let you know.
