The Greek phalanx heavily relied on shields. The point was all your enemy had to attack was this massive wall of bronze with spears poking out. Though it is true that other armies used the phalanx formation without shields, this is why I specifically mentioned the Greek phalanx, because the point of those shields was to stop an enemy attack in its tracks, whereas the medieval shield was used to deflect and parry blows for a counterattack, not to stop them dead in their tracks.
User avatar #40 - thegamegestapo (02/16/2015) [-]
They also used their shields as a weapon to a certain extent. Momentum meant that the shields had considerable force behind them which was enough to beat back and unbalance an enemy long enough to be stabbed in the throat with their xiphos, or ideally knocked to the ground.
User avatar #10 - warbob (02/15/2015) [-]
still , the roman shields were made to cover the whole body and their forces were adept in moving in formations, effectively making moving shield walls. Literally half their formations consist of using shields in different ways.
#12 - shigiddy (02/15/2015) [-]
Very true, and the Roman formation definitely fits the bill as a shield to halt an attack instead of deflect it. The Greek phalanx is just the first thing I thought of. The comparison is my own opinion on the myth of how medieval shields were used.

From what i know the ones that put their hands in the crocodiles usually put a fuck ton of lotion on their hands so if that happens they don't lose a hand just a bad bruise
User avatar #25 - CallMeCrisco (02/13/2015) [-]
Not to mention that their mouths are super sensitive, so if so much as a drop of sweat (or say, a drip from lotion that's been slathered on) drips off it's enough to trigger it's jaws to snap shut. By slathering your hands in shit, you'd be increasing your chances of getting bit.
#24 - CallMeCrisco has deleted their comment.
User avatar #23 - CallMeCrisco (02/13/2015) [-]
Lotion isn't going to do shit. The amount of force their jaws produce when shutting is amazing and once they've bitten down, there is no slipping out with lotion. Your best bet is to try and roll with them (since the roll is designed to rip limbs off; keep in mind they easily delimb much bigger critters than people all the time) until your buddies can pile on top, stop the deathroll, and try and pry it's jaws off you. At the very least, his arm has been forcefully rotated 360% out of place, but the bones are probably fucked as well.

Just wanting to stay alive is a little 1-dimensional, and I'm sure this character has a secondary set of values and motivations. I'd suggest talking it out with your DM, see if there is a way to incentive-ize this character staying, since it's better for party play if you keep everyone together. Maybe there's a certain somebody in the approaching army that your character really wants to see dead, so much that they'd risk their own safety to see to it, or something to that effect. Maybe this somebody hired your character as a mercenary and stiffed them, leaving them in deep trouble without proper compensation.
User avatar #10293 - warbob (02/14/2015) [-]
the opposing army are all dragonborn , a race which in my world has lived on another island (continent) after being banished from ours. Long story short , no possible relations with the opposing army.

It's not that I can't think of a reason to make my character stay and I'll resort to it if I have to in the end, it just portrays my character in a way that isn't exacly true.
Basicly I'll have him stay because of the possibility of being renown by the city and the possible rewards that he might receive if this happens.
Kinda sounds like a greedy and shitty reason to stay when you believe the odds for you to die are abnormally high..
Furthermore the fight will be in a city without walls. Based on all the books I have read (fantasy ones) street fights are literally the worst thing a soldier can get and this is exacly that.

yeah, but in england and america we have a dozen or so phrases that mean the same thing.

Sometimes we have stores that force their emeployees to mindlessly parrot "hello, how can I help you" like some sort of robot, but another store would have something else along the same gist.

japan has exact phrases for coming into work, coming home from work, entering a guest's house, inviting a guest into the house, before and after eating every meal.

Sure, we might say "thanks for the food" or something, but in japan you're exepected to do it even if you are completely alone at the time.

To the point where some get used even when they don't apply anymore.

One that sticks in the head from when I was in japan is Irasshaimase.
Basically it means "come closer/ Come into the store"

Apparantly (from looking it up on the internet) it's from a time when people used to sell everything from market stalls, and you wanted to invite customers closer.

Nowadays you have people in the store itself just chanting it out. "please come closer, please come closer" like some sort of robot, not because they actually want you to come closer (because you are presumably inside the store at this point) but because they might get written up if they don't say it to every single customer.

God knows how they'd react if you really did get right up in their personal space and say "The fuck do you want?"

it is part of their etiquette , as well as saying "thank you for the meal" , "sorry for the intrusion" and etc.

much like people in America in stores/fast food chains would greet you with "Welcome , what would you like?" or saying "Good morning" , "Good evening" , "Good night"

they're not as different from us as you might think.

Thanks for the advice, I do appreciate it, but my character is unconventional. Usually, after a few image searches, I can find a close enough picture of the character I'm playing but I'm having a difficult time this time.

He's a non-combat dedicated healer with a goblin disciple (whom he converted from being evil.) So, no armor, no weapon, simple robes and hes in his sixties. Finding an image for him isn't all that hard, but all appropriate images are usually of Christian Monks image shown is the best I can find . Finding an images of a robe wearing, non-combative goblin holding an alms box for Ilmater is damn near impossible to track down.

User avatar #27 to #26 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
I'm not mad at you. I'd been meaning to say some stuff about encomp for a while now, but the fact of the matter is that I've never called someone out for thumbing unless I sincerely wanted their critique in order to make it better.

just wanted to speak with you , I pretty much said what I wanted already. I'm not supporting him , I honestly don't care much. You guys can have your civil war on the board, time will pass and it will be long forgotten.
User avatar #29 to #28 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
I don't want a civil war. the only thing you could call me angry or passionate about in this whole ordeal is that the reason the board was essentially dead in the first place is because he killed it. look back and you'll see what I'm talking about.

About the game, though, it's off topic. I may not necessarily like the idea about it but that's beside the point. what you guys as players should do is what languagexplain, myself, and a few others wound up doing. petition to get a forum gaming board or something for games like that.
User avatar #30 to #29 - warbob ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
yeah , at some point I realised it's not exacly /tabletop/ gaming either. Trying to get in contact with addy or smt to propose the board to be renamed to /tabletop & roleplaying/ if the users agree and stuff.
User avatar #31 to #30 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
I honestly know of games similar to this that wouldn't fit that bill either. I've wanted to post them before, but to be entirely honest, I don't want to pollute the board (unlike someone.) I sincerely think games should deserve their own board.

in case you're wondering, one game I had wanted to start is called king of the hill. the goal is essentially to take the hill (it gets increasingly more absurd as it goes on)
User avatar #32 to #31 - warbob ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
sounds good. Perhaps we'll make roleplaying a part of the board at some point so all that stuff is actually ontopic.

However it'd be quite hard to make the people stop playing the nation builder and from what I've seen the mods aren't seeing it as an infringement of the rules either.
User avatar #33 to #32 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
never said you guys should stop, I just think it should be moved. one mod did recommend that he move it to his profile.
User avatar #34 to #33 - warbob ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
I suppose it's a possibility.
But we still have the problem with the lack of people on the board. The cause for them being so low atm aside, we need active people on the board now.

I've been trying to get more people using it. I haven't got many ideas for what to do as of yet. maybe having rikter post a painting guide and doing some "newbie friendly" character creation guides

guides on creating characters sounds good , but tabletop gaming itself doesn't provide that many topics for conversation imo.

User avatar #38 to #37 - warbob ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
well nation building and etc. is roleplaying imo , so I can figure out a lot of stuff that can happen within a roleplaying board.
User avatar #39 to #38 - dndxplain ONLINE (08/28/2014) [-]
I sincerely still think a games board would be better suited for your needs, because you can argue that roleplays are games, but you can't argue that checkers or go fish are roleplays

Why do we all try?
In the end we'll all die
The same outcome for all
The tall and the small
For the people who think they are worthless
And for the rich people who have no sense
To see their lives will end too
And there's nothing they can do
You can't buy your way out of death
One of life’s hardest test
Some people's lives end fast
Like in a shooting or a crash
Their lives are over in a flash
Their friends all mourn
Their family is torn
