This past Gencon a buddy and I decided to attend the foam fighting arena on Saturday morning. We were pretty surprised to find that there was a group locally. After picking up one of the War flyers I decided I would look into this since I really want to get my sword arm back into shape!
While my friend is still on the fence I have already pulled out my old sword and shield!
My name is Zach and I live in Noblesville. A few Gencons ago I attended one of the foam fighting arenas when they were based out of Union Station and convinced a few buddies to grab some weapons from the Edhellen armory booth (at the time we were using wooden weapons crafted ourselves) and using what I learned from the 4 hours of combat started using the basic Dagohir rules set involving limb hits and when you are 'down'.
I feel confident about my ability to sword and board on a basic level but I am really looking forward to attempting to get out to a practice. They say that in order to succeed you need to learn from people better than you!
I am also out of practice, and unfortunately a tad out of shape. Just small bouts at the booth left me feeling dead and I needed to sit down.
Here is to hoping I can get my sleep schedule set to a point where I can make it to the next practice! (Third shift best shift)
