Slings and shields

Post by Rodolfo » Tue Dec 08, 2015 5:31 pm

Requesting the ability to use slings while holding a shield in the other hand. You hold the sling pouch in your shield hand (the shield is strapped to your arm) and use the hand holding the sling cords to grab a new stone and put it in the sling pouch. See the following video for an example (after he gets it wrong the first time).

Add an extra second of roundtime for using a shield if we feel it needs to be balanced.

That person has an awesome youtube channel. I am totally watching all of his videos.

As for the suggestion, doesn't seem unreasonable. We can probably work something like that in.
[GMCHAT Uyoku]: Octum is when the octumbunny comes around and lays pumpkins everywhere right?
[GMCHAT Rias]: Dimmes says "oh hai :) u need healz? ill get u dont worry thaum lasers pew pew pew lol"
[CHAT - GameMaster Rias would totally nuke Rooks]: Here's how elemancy works: The freeblegreeble and the zippoflasm have to be combined with the correct ration of himbleplimp, then you add the gargenheimer and adjust the froopulon for the pattern you want, apply some tarratarrtarr, yibble the wantaban, and let 'er rip!

I really liked his spiel about katanas.

Here is a another one I like. The sad truth is that fantasy fighting is a lot more fun than what it would be like in real life.

That was beautiful. I have nothing against the katana itself, but I have everything against the over-hype, worship, and perpetuation of absurd myths (the ones people insist are true).
The lore compels me!

If you like that sort of stuff, this guy is awesome.

This is probably one of his best "general" videos... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dk0GBKaMcgE
