posticon Cowboys and indans


Ok, now that i have ur attion i want to say something that was told to me. We have a problem with the pratcies, that will hopefully go away when the Fighters come back.

The problem is that we are nolonger palying Dag when it comes to calling ur shots, we (the recuits who come to the summer pratcies) are playing cowboys and Indians. Aka "i had to of killed u there" "no u didnt" this is happing b/c people have not been taking there shots me included.

I hope this can u fixed when the fighters and the All-powerful hunter come back and kick the crap out of us....

Re: Cowboys and indans


i feel partly to blame by this. I am also very displeased that with out myself or Mith there to keep our eyes on the feild, that events such as last Saturday had to happen. I have to deal with !@#$ like that in my RA position. I come to Dag to get away from all of that and have fun. I do not want to mediate a fist fight break'n out. I want to go out there, swing my sward, kill a few and curse myself for not watch'n my back or be'n to hasty. and I I feel some one is not take'n a hit, well i will let it go knowing I am a better fighter and person for it, and if it goes too far i will ask some one to harald. But after it is done I leave it all on the field and I look forward to the next week's practice. Actually the more i think about it I am very pissed that what happened did happen. the people invoulved are gonna have a talk with me personaly. and then I suspect they will talk to the council. Do you guys not understand you are on the same side. you should be learning to fight together and not out for blood on each other?

as for now... I want some one out there as harald, eyes on the feild the whole time. I want every one to harald so it is fair. I want fair ruleings and honest shots take'n. we have new guys on the field and they see you guys fighting they way you do. I would hope you would set an example and not let your ego get in the way. Notice I have not mentioned any names either. this goes for every one, myself included.

I hope when i do make it on to the field some time soon we can have some of this resalved... I am also hopeing some one will be the better person and maybe admit they may have gone a bit too far with what may have happened before I get there. once this game goes from kick ass to not so fun, that is the day Eryndor falls apart, and I my firends will NOT have that! As I see it we are the MOST UNIQUE, MOST RESPECTFUL, and MOST ORGANIZED chapter in our area~! I want it to stay that way.

~a very pissed off fighter~

Re: Cowboys and indans


Agreeing with everything Deakon said, I admittedly was not there for what happened but it ruins the fun of the game if it gets out of hand.

So lets not let anything like this happen again for the sake of the game itself and if your going to do something like what I have been told happened lets not have it be on the field of Dagorhir and in your own personal time because I don't want to see that at any practice I'm at.

Re: Cowboys and indans


mateo...pointing fingers is half the reason my former group was having so much trouble...

we all have ego....ALL of us..
it's sad when we let that get in the way of having fun. Dagorhir is only a game after all. You wake up the next day and still have to work and go to school, whether you died or lived, lost or won, took your shots or didn't.

so please, if someone is getting on your nerves, let them know personally, don't get on here and start something where the whole wide world can access it. it starts problems. believe me, i would know. emoticon

Re: Cowboys and indans


Holy crap. I should have just read this first. Well in case you didn't notice, I've e-mailed the yahoo group on this issue. Let's just say the problem had better fix itself before we get back into bigger practices, because NO one wants to have an unfun time at Dagorhir. Check the yahoo group for my wise 20 year old words of advice (threats).

Re: Cowboys and indans


Heads up everyone,

Hey gang, a lot of you don't even personally know me that well, since I'm about an hour and a half removed from Eryndor 90% of the time up here in Rochester.

But, like Daeris and Mithris, I'm a high council member, and just as responsible as they are for everything that goes on in Eryndor. I don't know names, and I don't know exactly happened, but I did heart about some bad times happening at a recent practice, and this is just not good.

I'm not pulling the "I'm a leader so listen to me" card, I'm making a heartfelt request to all of you.

Eryndor is one. We are not seperate pieces, we are not the 'leaders' vs. the 'others', we are not the fighters vs. the newbies, we are not the old kids vs. the new kids, we are not the hard-core event-goers vs. the occasional practicers. Everybody's fun (the most important thing!) evolves around the point that we're all tied by a single, amazing fact -- we all love the game of Dagorhir.

I don't know or specifically care to know what went down that created such bad feelings on Saturday that the mud is STILL getting dragged out onto these boards. But I do know that no one is truly in Eryndor to be called out or to call other people out on something that is ultimately just a game.

Check the newbie manual... nothing about the joy of calling shots, blowing off hits, hitting stupidly hard to hurt someone, and talking smack to people who are your comrades.

Me, Daeris, Mithris, and any of the other Eryndor members who have a lot of personal experience with other chapters can all tell you one thing-- drama kills everything. Great chapters get destroyed for dumb reasons, especially when people IN THE SAME CHAPTER start finger pointing and getting in each other's face. This game is fun, and nobody, nobody has fun when stuff lke that goes on.

Once again, I am not saying this to any single person or group, I just know that some stuff that is very un-Eryndorish (seriously gang, for a young chapter like we are, we are by far one of the best organized, hardest fighting, and most respected groups, we take those compliments serious!) was going on, and I hope that everybody agrees that its more fun to have fun that to not have fun. emoticon

So anyway, I'm lettin' the locals of Toledo work out any remaining kinks (I'm hoping that everyone has calmed down and everyhting is better anyways!), but as the "random leader who just prowls the boards," I'm lettin' everyone know a few quick things:

1) I deleted any posts (and any posts in the future) that insult, degrade, or try to hurt the feelings of any Eryndor member. Negative posts that sit here for years for the world to see is just not cool, and doesn't improve anything.

If there are personal concerns between two members, odds are they can be worked out personally between the two members. If not, personally contact a High Council member or another Eryndor member you respect and explain the situation. Solving any problems between Eryndor members is really good, and it shows class you're willing to try to fix problems, but these boards are definately not the right place.

If you have something to say about Eryndor in general that is a concern, of COURSE feel free to discuss this on the boards. Don't be afraid to say negative things when you see them, just always focus on figuring out how to fix it, not just b-ing about it.

2) Remember that calling your shots (other than a Archer) is never allowed in Dagorhir, ever. Even when someone is being a hardcore rhino-hide, its just not part of the game. If someone is really, really blowing off hits, make sure you wait until everyone is calmed down (personally, I know how hard it can be to think clear-headed when my Dagorhir testosterone is flowing), and then talk to them. If they don't listen to you, find some other Eryndor leaders who agree with you, and have them talk to him/her personally as well.

3) Take your shots! Even the best Dagorhir fighters (of you never went to Rag, you haven't even begun to see the best yet) who are also known as 'rhino-hiders' (aka Blow Off Hits) are generally considered dishonorable and have very little respect outside their personal circle of friends. Dying when you get hit makes you a very honorable fighter, and people will respect that.

4) Eryndor is a team. We practice together and kill each other only because there aren;t any other chapters nearby. But practice is just practice. JUST PRACTICE! We fight then to get better for events, where we beat the piss out of other chapters (and we honorably get the piss kicked out of us!). If we aren;t unified on THAT battlefield, becuase of bad blood during our personal practices, then we'll never live up to our full potential.
