    Since the event is intended partly to allow players to try out new gear, will homemade weapons be accepted at the event (so long as they meet safety specifications)? At the premiere, homemade weapons were discouraged but allowed; I just want to make sure I'm prepared in case rentals aren't available, and I might like to try some new things out.

    This is totally acceptable. As long as safety specs are met, have fun and be creative!

    Indeed. It is in the spirit of this event to let people try new things!

    Thank you for the response. Now I need to get cracking...

    Now that the event's over, what did you think? Did they pass your play test?

    Hollen Mistle Elf Druid of Deeplight Colony Myths & Legends

    Yes and no. The smaller weapons were flimsy, but worked until one of the blades got stepped on after the event. The staff worked wonderfully, but I need to cap the core better to save the foam next time. In any case, I figured out that I definitely want to keep using staves in the future.

    Awesome! Glad the event helped :)

    And sorry to hear one of the weapons got smushed! Do you know if it was intentional?

    I highly doubt it was intentional. It was on the ground with the rest of our stuff, and it wasn't damaged too badly, just badly enough that it's probably not usable anymore.

    Yeah, what he said. I didn't see what happened--it was just fine one minute and then broken the next. I figure I just need to be more careful about where I set my stuff in the future. (It was a really cheap weapon anyway.)

    Ok, thanks!

    on those walmart swords you have to reinforce the cores or just replace them completely, also helps to tool dip the blades.

    May buy up a bunch for loaners....imo they are also insanely light weight

    I used the shaft from a graphite golf club I got at the thrift shop to re-core one of those.

    Tripps i think beefed one up similarly, Hamish did too.

    Yeah they are really nice little temp weapons. Also you can take the core out and have a thrusting dagger.

    I can make some cheap hybrid boffers. I'm also putting in an order for about 80 worth of good foam that I'm going to use for weapons. I now have four 3ft by 8 ft foam sheets being shipped to my house. I can bust out some quick loaner weapons after I make your stuff and that one kids stuff(if he decides he wants to spend money on something other than crazy ebay purchases)

    Yeah, just some basic stuff would be cool.

    When i get some money i think i'm gonna buy us a few cheapo loaner swords from By the sword. Maybe Hamish can donate some bucklers when he builds the 2.0 version?

    once i get thru the 2nd week of October, i will have more time, and can crank a few out.

    When I get that foam in I can crank simple loaners out pretty fast. The foam is black so I could leave them unpainted. Probably better than buying cheap stuff that's going to break.
