||orthern Regional Warlord. There
have been some other fighter practices and events since
Northern Regional Tribute. However, I was pretty irked,
annoyed, frustrated, irritated, and generally put out, so
I have not felt the urge to write since then. However,
Northern Regional Warlord (herafter NRW) was much
different and amazingly better.
#1) People threw and called
shots at half the level the threw @ NRT.
#2) People didn't get way too worked up about who was
watching them and if there was going to be belted circle
#3) I got to fight spear.
Now, for those who
don't know, I spent 4 years (2 1/2 inactive) as a rapier
combatant before getting involved in heavy weapons. When
I did get involved, it was because one of the things that
people told me about spear was "Light weapons
fighters make good spearmen", and I was pretty
excited with the idea of fighting spear, you know reach
out and touch someone. Well, at first, I was put into the
shield wall, and I enjoyed it and did not really worry
bout fighting spear, figuring that my figure was, shall
we say a bit too full to hide behind a little stick, and
that I was much better off hiding this big ol body behind
So I spent about a year
learning about shield fighting (minus the time off for
knee injury). However, when I got to fight spear this
weekend, I had more fun than I had had in a long time,
probably since the war of three kings (where I first got
to armour up after my injury). I think I did really well,
as I very rarely killed less than two or three to my
death, and sometimes got considerably more.. :-) yeaahhh!!!
So, I know have a fun
new weapon style to distract me from sword and sheild,
and to keep me from doing my pell work...
