Let's Melee!!!

Postby Boshman » Wed Aug 28, 2013 6:55 pm

A couple of the LARP-safe melee weapons we will be issuing to players on both side at the Rattenkrieg event for the inevitable close quarter fighting or stealth attacks from the darkness :D

These are made completely from lightweight soft foam with a rigid but flexible core so you can stuff them into your belt and they wont fold in half.

We will be mass-producing these so there should be enough for most players but if anyone can bring or make their own that would be great :good: I know there are a couple of Militia players who are making their own large shovels to batter the German invaders :giggle:

“I wanted to come to the Volga at a specific location at a specific city. By chance it carries the name of Stalin himself. So don’t think I marched there for this reason – it could carry another name – but because there is a very important goal... this goal I wanted to take – and you know – we are very modest, we have it already."
Adolf Hitler, November 1942

"Comrades, Red Army men, commanders and political workers, men and women guerrillas! It is on your perseverance, staunchness, fighting skill and readiness to discharge your duty to the country that the defeat of the German-fascist army and the liberation of the Soviet land from the Hitlerite invaders depend! We can and must clear the Soviet land of Hitlerite vermin."
Joseph Stalin, November 1942

Give me a big enough hammer and a place to stand and I could fix the world.
i'll kill a man in a fair fight or if i think he's going to start a fair fight or over a woman or.......
a problem shared is a problem halved ,but an advantage shared is no advantage at all
if a job's not worth doing then its certainly not worth doing well

This makes me double sad I can't make this one. :(

I was planning on bringing my Larp throwing Hatchets and a wrench, (that's a 2 and half foot larp safe pipe wrench, have it left over from from a steampunk/space 1889 game)

To the tune of "Mademoiselle from Armentières"

Napoleons army ran away, As you do
The guard stood firm for Frances Pride, As you do
They said the guard will stand and die
But we heard what their Colonel cried
It wasn't pretty I tell you.
