Hey everyone, I've heard that a lot of dagorhir people wanted to make dag more like a sport, and I started tossing around how that might work out.
So I sat down a few weeks ago and thought about sports and how Dag could become more like an organized sport, so I came up with these rules... I thought I would post the link here and just see if people were willing to test it with me, towards summer, and get some feed back.

yea stubbie is right it does sound kinda like jugger, which is an awsome game btw. but anyway as for weaponry on this, im not one to use a shield unless its on my back. i would consider myself a hoplight in your game just cuz im the fast flanker guy in dag and i would say you should consider an option of florentine in this cuz i myself would prefer two swords over a shield and sword if im suppose to use speed to get to their goal. the shield seems kinda combersume. but this is just my opinion.

You might be onto something with the 2 swords.
Like I said in the post, I was working this with thoughts of a really streamlined uniform style of play, like any of the 'professional' sports you see on TV, with set standards and guidelines to work in.
I think Play Testing will show a lot of what needs to happen.

Shameless plug alert. Go to the Dragonspire boards and look up Brogas Ball. This is a good idea, so good there are a lot of versions of it out there. Talk surfaces about a league from time to time but so far no has gotten it started. Agreeing on a rules set is the biggest hurdle.
