I have no real preference. I was just saying I was going to joust.

hmmm, perhaps (if both parties agree) the next joust will be decided by RP alone.

I will weigh multiple factors of both characters based on skill, build and the pm'ed tactic.
But I will need more info about your character in you PM, not only the tactic, but if not already posted in the stat's thread, also your skill with lance/riding and your character's build, meaning: tall/short and heavy/light.




We started with all RP, made up several other options, and are back with RP... interesting.

Since we are just testing, i'll be willing to do it by RP alone.

How long will you be away? It will take several days before you two will joust..

If however you are away for more than a week, perhaps I can do you two first. (if everyone agrees)

Aye, the part of text I made colored in the first post of the tourney is your characters introduction, this will be yours to write. SO that and the tactic you will use in the joust itself have to be send to me in a private message.

this ensures the fairness of the joust,

wow doing this only in RP makes it very difficult for the GM Wink

But I really appreciate that so many of you have already decided to joust, and already pm'ed me with the intro and tactics.
If Aranor pm's me today, we could finish all three jousts this very evening!

That's why I advocated using both game rules with an allocation for RP and tactics. This basically provides an equal playing field with the opportunity to modify outcomes based on individual strategies.

How many different creative strategies are there though?

My understanding of jousting is that it was a test of skill with a lance, of judging where your opponent will be with the bouncing of his horse, of keeping your lance steady, precise and held properly so that the maximum force is directed against the point on which it hits the opponent... all while charging on a horse yourself. I would compare it to a test of archery, it isn't so much about creative tactics as it is base skill.

I can think of several tactics and strategies to use, which are-

That -is- what I think! I've tried to google it, yet I've not found anything saying 'Hold your lance with three fingers, then kick your right leg over the saddle and bob it up three times.'

I'll diverge one secret.

Lean back when you are about to be hit.

That's pretty basic.

It's hardly creative and something every expert lancer would know. It's like saying to an archer 'inhale before you draw the bow.'

This is my point, nobody has been able to explain to me how RP ought to be judged in a contest of a specific skill, as opposed to a more vague and freeform contest of an arena fight.
