I'd like to talk about what we can do to encourage Combat Archery.
We in recent years have come to gulf with fewer Archers than Trimaris,
Add this to the big Morale hit the archers are taking with the new rule
And I'm afraid we're going to be in trouble.
For those of you who didn't experience it a fresh at Gothic, being
By archers is a really unhappy place to be :). So I'd like to discuss
what we can do
To share that experience with our enemies instead of keeping it all to
Here are some of the ideas I've heard so far.
- Start practicing with the archers included. Involve them in each maneuver.
This is to help them feel more included and build esprit de corps..
- Fundraisers for ammo upgrade costs.
- Build archers into plans specifically, as at the ravine battle at gulf
Were supposed to all attack a specific point just before we charged it.
- Make sure not to schedule archer battles at Gulf at the same time as
(or so close there is no time to move from one to the other ie how it
was last year.)
Does anyone know who we should talk to about this one? Who's our liaison
scheduling of Gulf?
- Buy all our significant others a crossbow & armor for Christmas. ( :) )
I know there are some folks who aren't the biggest fans of CA (although
I'm a fan), and I ask please
that we set that aside and support them for this Gulf War. It's a known
fact that the enemy
will have CA at Gulf, lets band together to make sure WE have more than the
Enemy, so that they experience far more suckage than we do.
Think of Archer Dominance, like Air Superiority in modern combat. If you
have it, its gives you near total freedom
To do what you want on the ground, and if you don't have it, you are
strongly inhibited from doing what YOU
Want to do on the ground. Do you want to be roaming the field hitting
where you want, or do you want to be
Huddled behind a shield waiting for a chance to do something?
More archers = More fun for everyone (on our side :)).
I'd like to set Archer dominance as one of our goals for next Gulfwar
and the Gulfwar after,
What do you think, how can we do it, and who's willing to step up to
help organize and lead?
Sir Kenneth has volunteered to step up as a Combat Archery Liason, to
help drive this effort,
But we need more than one man to make this happen.
