My wife, 2 friends and I are planning our first adventure for this month's event. Just wanted to drop a hello and ask a couple questions:
  • Regarding Crossbows; what is a recommended tension? Should I follow standard boffing builds for the bolts?
  • Regarding character cards for first time players; Should we arrive with a sheet of what we want our characters to be and cards will be generated with the beginner Staff? I'm sorry if I've overlooked a spot that explains this, there is A LOT to read in the rulebook!

Thanks and can't wait to meet everyone!

EDIT: Wanted to add one more thing. I'm a Systems Administrator OOG. If you need any site administration help, or anything I.T. related assistance, please feel free to drop me a message. I'd be more than glad to help out

Hey! Thanks for joining us!

In regards to crossbows, they are supposed to have the same draw weight as a standard bow, which is roughly 20-25 lbs. If you already have a crossbow, you can test to see if it's legal with a fish scale. Using the scale/ hook, just draw it back to see the poundage. I have one I bring with me regularly, so we can test it if you want there.

Homemade crossbow bolts (and arrows) are strictly prohibited for safety reasons. Only IDV bolts purchased from a dealer such as Calimacil, Dark Knight Armory, LARP Exchange, or Medieval Collectibles will work.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to bring them up!
