Alright, a couple things here.

I know that everyone has life outside of Dagorhir, which is good. Also, everyone has time for family, which is more than good, it's something that should never, EVER, be tossed away in favor of Dag. This is basically how I see it: Family>Work>Dagorhir>Everything else

Since my friends are usually my family, this works very well for me. Maybe not so much for you. For the kids in school without jobs, you can easily substitute school for work, since the school is your job til you graduate. Anyways.

There has been alot of talk about more practices during the week, etc etc. We already have practice every Sunday, and supposed to have one every other Saturday as well (Dragonknight hosted practice). So, how bout during the week? Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday? Which day is good for you? What time? Morning? Evening? Midday?


We all need to fight more, to practice more, to get better, but I don't want to cut into anyone's family times and such.

well as far as a weekday practice,I have no idea right no,currently my open day during the week is wednesday but soon as I make my final job jump that too will change,I will let you know then but yes I would love to have a week day practice,stormwrath has one can't we?
now as far as anything else,I wish we could start on sundays at 11am,this is before peak heat ,and as you and everyone knows anything above 90 and I can't compete ,the air is too hot to breathe for me which I am sure some of the other smokers in the group will attest to.yes I know I should quit and do have a plan I am getting ready to implement but summer =hell for me.

Well, unfortunately, 12 is the earliest we can go because most people have church. We could change it to later, so it goes into the evening hours, but I don't know how many people would be able to work it out, especially if they're school kids.

Buy actual arrows, you want them to be over 28inches as it is the max draw length in Dag, and you want to be able to pull back 28 inches without the head of the arrow touching the bow.

#1 and this is the most important, if your arrow has a tip (and by tip I mean a piece that sits over the shaft at the front end) it must be removed. Sometimes it's as easy as just pulling it off with some pliers, but I've cut them off before....

After that, take some duct tape and wrap it around at the tip until a Penny meets flush with the diameter of tape you have, and tape the Penny on securely

When you've done all that, you are actually ready to start foamsmithing. The method for smithing Arrows is pretty much the same for Pommels. Put a layer that goes around the arrow, and then put a foam cap on the end, do that like 2 or 3 times.

After that, you need the fluffy open cell foam, and you dont want to DAP it on, if you can, you will want to get some spray adhesive. The reason for this is that if you compress the open cell onto the dap, it will get dap further into the open cell piece rather than just the surface it is touching, and the foam can end up staying compressed.

Then all you need to do is take a piece of cloth big enough to cover all the foam, but it over the arrow head and tape it down firlmy on the shaft.

There are also Arrow Tutorials on the Main Dagorhir.com website

Note this one thing: Via new arrow rules that will come into effect this next Ragnarok, and so that you dont have to remake your arrow heads, MAKE YOUR ARROW HEADS SODA CAN SHAPE, dont make them stream-line like a teardrop shape. While making them teardrop shape makes them more aerodynamic, it causes the arrow's tail end to whip around when it hits something which can hit someone in the face or something and end up with an unhappy ending....
