After much consideration I have decided to include LARP related posts sometimes when the need arises. For my first post I want to talk about the idea of roleplaying your hits every time you get touched by a weapon.
One the face of it this sounds like a simple and good idea. A sword running across your arm, or cutting your fingers is going to hurt. Like hurt a lot. In reality (and I’m fully aware we’re not fighting in reality but in a game) it doesn’t take that much contact from a weapon to cause you a significant amount of damage so every time someone touches you with a weapon you should react to it. This is the view that a lot of people hold but I would like to put forward an alternative view for your consideration.
