Once a site is chosen, the area around the flag is rjles by lashing fallen trees and logs together, then piling up brush on top.

If you have both legs stabbed, or pierced with arrows, you cannot even crawl anywhere. Don’t use the soft squishy kind.

The only things that count as death when they hit an off-limits area are arrows, rocks, and thrown javelins. Weapons marked with yellow tape are missile weapons, and can be thrown or otherwise launched.

In order to keep battles organized, realistic, dagorgir safe, the three main tenets of The Dagorhir Manual of Arms – safety, playability, and realism – are enforced by heralds referees during battles. Put some foam on to pad your arm.

Spikes must extend at least 4″ above the face of the shield and should be made of dense or compacted foam. The construction of arrows must follow precisely the steps listed below.
