Ok.... You think huge reds are pointless for various reasons. But, here's my question - If huge reds are so very easy to beat, what the hell do you care if they like to use them?? You have a different opinion than they do.
So what? If your want you opinion to be respected by anyone else you really should stop trying to force it on them. So he likes big reds and you don't, big deal. Just chock it up to personal preference and move on. Bele is a great game, but that's the point, its a game! So you play your way and let him play his.

P.S. Its not an age thing, it's a maturity thing.

Moxk's post wasn't about making fun of anyone. It was about lying.

Argyle (which is the fighting name of saghaoithai, I don't know why he uses that board name, and I can't spell it.) is a good person. I don't have any problem with him, and as far as I know Moxk doesn't either.

But he does NOT own our field, or anything of the like.

We're both just really tired of the * waiving conversation the foam smithing forum has become.

Just thought someones ego needed a public deflating. Argyle is a good guy, but a mediocre fighter. I like hanging out with him, but this was just getting rediculas. The giant red is his thing, and that's cool, but it's only holding him back.

Last time I checked you get smoked at realm practices. A lot.


yeah, i do. i have admitted i suck a lot previous. I am merely proud of the sword i've built and don't hesitate to brag about it. While i hold no hesitation to brag, i don't lie. It did knock a man down, it has gone through countless attempted blocks, i do feel like i'm letting down a commitment to red weapons when i use other weapons.

If you had been playing this game for only two months and you'd sucked the whole time, but was acknowledged for making a cool weapon by others, and had noticed it to be effective occasioanallyas it has, you would probably milk it for everything it's worth.

the comments about my huge penis were unessecary, but appreciated. thanks for noticing.

oh yeah, ther was no malicious sarcasm in that post whatsoever. i take offense that you say I lied. I did not **** lie, and do not **** lie, to anyone other than my parents who **** deserve it. Find a post where i lied and i will castrate myself before you.



I like red weapons. I knew when i started these games with year with Ragnarok that red weapons were not the norm. I could tell from the start 90% of fighters use shields and that it will be difficult to commit myself to wielding red weapons.

I made a red weapon for ragnarok. it's building was influenced by weapons i wielded in a different boffer group. What came of it was a large crosshilted sword with a large pommel.

At first i merely admired it's length and balance. I then found people to give me "props" for making a cool weapon. I suppose then i began to become proud of it.

I acknowlege the unorthodoxy of my weapon, and that much of my success with it was owed to the fact that most seasoned fighters don't encounter such a thing, but nontheless marginal success was met.

People asked me how i counterwieght my weapons and i tell them how and why...

...somehow i guess that makes me a jackass

I enjoy the role-playing aspect of this game. I flavor my wording often in text, which i suppose attributes to it's apparent boastfullness..

like when i say: "my swords reign of terror" i am literarily exaggerating the period from ragnarok to it's breaking in which i had a unique weapon which killed about 150 fighters.

i have not practiced a day without picking up a shield and sword. it is more likely to say i fight half of the time that way, and take all tips given to me.

Medeival combat is my passion and I will play this game for a very long time. It would be much easier for me to fight sword and shield and do everything everyone else does, but i guess if nothing else this forum will motivate to not do so.

I fight with heavy weapons so when my edhellen sword comes i will be as trained as possible to use it. My unit will fight with red weapons as long as we are in existence, because it is of my opinion that this game needs flavor, and our unit can do that. If red weapons were stupid and pointless then they should not be in the BOW so that jackasses like me and my friends wont make them. We will practice and one day we won't suck and we will be grateful that we are skilled red-fighters and stand alone as the only all-red group in the game.

I fail to see what is so wrong with reds. I'd put down the bow for a while and use one myself if only I had one. That is assuming it has a stab-tip though. I find reds too limited in usage without one.

Cool weapon, BTW.

Okay, your right, lying was way off.

However, what I meant, was that Moxk's post wasn't about making fun of you, so much as about giving your ego a shield check.

Just don't want you to become a keyboard cowboy is all. Your too cool for that egotistical crap.

****, it did not seem like he had a bad ego, we just like his sword! And giant reds are not completely useless, I have fought and killed two skilled shield men before, by myself with a giant red. Yes, it happens rarely, but it still happened. Think of it as more of a challenge, not only do you look cooler than a shield man, you must work extra hard to fight with one. Is this sport more about winning or is it more of having fun? I guess opinions differ here, I am here to have fun, **** winning.


lol, oh yes, you are a noob, and they expect you to be killing everybody in the field, this world is quite krazy. The conformists and their crowd following hate for giant reds, amazing. :roll:

it's kinda funny though, because one of my favorite things to do when not arching is pick up a glaive :)

I carry a sword and shield when i arch, if someone runs at me, i usually drop the bow and melee it out, gotten some pretty nice kills like that when people aren't expecting it.

It tacoed, but I have PVC reinforcing it.

It's quite the old sled, I have a bar that runs down the middle (Punch handle) then crossbars. It isn't very heavy and it barely gets used, because I have a Heater strap now... that covers almost my whole body... :D

Well my * has increased in the last couple of months, so I guess I'll post some pics.

Here's a shot of my full range of weapons. You may notice the image of the Almighty Spatula on the blade of the ten foot Zanbatou. Also you see all 8 of my rocks (6 blue, 2 brown).

Image

Here are my twin 38" dual core blue swords:

Image

Twin butter knives (23"):

Image

One of my blue rocks (among the first I made, they are all about the same size and made with the same material.

Image

One of my brown rocks, made from a worn out t shirt and obviously much llarger than a blue rock.

Image

Each of my swords have a "W" on the pommel as a way of identifying them as mine. two blue rocks also have "W"s on them. All swords are fiberglass core and rocks are foam and cloth (no tape).

i like brown rocks. I always wanted to fashion some sort of rock bag to hang on the inside of my kilt, so during battle i can reach up between my legs, remove a huge brown **** rock, and throw it at someone's head.

here's some o'reilly weapons:

Spork: I really like that black and orange club you have. Does that have a stabby tip? how many layers (and of what) are around the head? How long/heavy is it?

Well, Sleeper, if you're ever in the Ogden, Utah area, I can point you to a great place that will almost certainly have an identical core in stock. It cost me about $15 with tax.

It's called Grating Systems, and according to them they are the only fiberglass store in a 3 state radius of utah. It wouldn't hurt to check tho.

Another thing for anyone who has a desire to get fiberglass from grating systems, the smallest diameter rod that they stock that is square is 1". all diameters under 1" are round.

So Wumpus, if I were to get, say, a half incher, would it pass the flex test if it were a 7 foot sword? I must know, I am looking to build a red that has range and speed wrapped in one, and seeing as you made a ten footer, you must know its flex limit. And, how bad is the wear and tear on it, my swords are quite wide, like yours, but they break down after two or three months of fighting and I have to repad them. Yours still looks intact.

Ok, first off I've never used 1/2 in diameter core so I wouldn't know. My guess is that it would work, but you'd end up cutting it close with flex. personally, I think if I were going any more than 6 ft, I wouldn't settle for anything less than 3/4 in, especially if it were round core. That would at least have a very good chance of passing flex.

For what it's worth, the ten ft sword has next to no flex. The most I can get out of it is when I swing full on at a tree I get about 10, maybe 15 degrees of flex

The wear and tear on the Zanbatou is still pretty minimal, but you have to remember that A) it gets to MAYBE two practices per month, sometimes less, sometimes more; 2) The * thing is built super solid, with 7 (SEVEN!!!11shifty1!) layers of blue foam, 2 layers of 1 inch thick open cell and 5 (FIVE!!!) cans of dap. In other words, it isn't coming apart easily; and Q) I don't do stupid things with my stuff. I take pride in my work, and so I take good care of it. I'm not saying you do stupid things with your stuff (I don't know how you treat your stuff), I'm just saying that taking good care of your things will make them last longer.

I know it's to test flex, and maybe break it in, but in the end I felt comicly compelled to point out that those to statements were so close to eachother.

Well, I've noticed that certain peoples won't take my red hits. They seem to want me to smash the **** of their shields with my sword, so yeah, my swords take a pounding.

Was it a bloody, severed tellytubby head, or more of a child friendly head that looked like it never had a body in the first place?

That looks really bad.....

Socks and duct tape. I'm impressed.


Remember kids don't use socks and duct tape to cover you weapons.



Knowing is half the battle!
