Weapons for the One Day
You may bring any legal Second Dawn or Legynds weapon. Weapons from other larps are probably fine, but must be approved first. All weapons will be classified as one of the three sizes in the rulebook. Be ready for a weapons safety check.
Also be aware that you will be given a pre-generated character who will have a specific fighting style, so try and bring the weapons for that style.
While in Alpha, there will be no absolute phys rep rules. This means that any weapon you buy may not be deemed legal. However, we will probably allow you to test most anything that fits within our weapon sizes and we will be testing some phys reps as well.
What I can tell you about the molded foam weapons is that we love the way they look, but there are a couple of brands out there that make them extremely hard and testing has shown them to be uncomfortable to some. The softer foam versions we have allowed in the past. I would honestly need to see the actual weapon to know how safe these are. If anyone has experience with this specific company, feel free to chime in.
@chris-dodson thanks for the reply!
that particular vendor doesn't allow returns unless the item arrives damaged, so i'm not sure i wanna roll the dice on it being up to safety standards.
do you know of any brands or vendors i can search for that make the safer physreps?
I don't know of any specific vendors, but as we move past the alpha phase, I will be putting some time into getting this information. Meantime, I would ask the community on facebook.
