As I said in my other post, I'm a new player, never been to an event. I'm about ready to start making my first weapon and armor, and I'm looking for someone around Lexington that might let me get a look at their equipment. I have an idea for what I want, but I want to make sure it's feasible and acceptable before I spend any money on it. Anyone who would want to help out can send me a private message or post on here. I usually check in daily or every other day for updates. Thanks =)

A couple of questions first. What type of character and race do u plan to play? I would recomend that you begin small, simple boffer weapon, solid color tabard, and armor. A lot depends on what you want to play. Halloween express has beards, helmets, elf ears, etc. Weapon is pvc with foam, see weapon making instructions. Armor take a tabberd and glue pieces of hard plastic to it, or sew poker chips between to pieces of fabric. If you need any more help pm me.

Well, I plan on playing just a human fighter to start with. I finished making my boffer longsword last night along with a shield. I haven't started on the armor yet.

A good chunk of the NERO Kentucky player base is in Lexington, so if you need help there are a good number of players here in town.

Don't forget, before your character hits 6th level you can once-ever change his race and class (respending his build points), so after your first few events you decide you want to play something different, you can without being out the experience from your earlier events.

If you ever start looking into making your own scale or chain mail armor, I can give you some pointers. If you are interested in buying, I know a guy locally that will make chainmail to order. It is labor intensive, and poker brig is easier, cheaper, lighter, and worth more points.

I rarely check the boards though, my email is skjaldbakka @
