PostSubject: Curiosity of a noob...   Tue Sep 20, 2011 1:40 pm

Hello all! I've been lurking around here and and on other Dagorhir related sites for several weeks out and wanted to come out and have a look, I'm a bit on the younger end but I read around here somewhere you guys allow 13+? Something like that. Do you have any players in the younger age range?
Other questions amount to, do you have loaners I might be able to use for the time being until I determine I want to head over to Homedepot and Walmart and pick up the supplies needed so I don't have to go around begging for equipment to use for the day.

Thanks for the help in advance.

How young are you talking? We have accepted 14 year olds, depends on their size and maturity and their parents. Parents have to come out and watch a practice to determine if their kid is ok to play. We play hard, think High School Football.

Turtle's 13. The way I've seen it, if youre under 15 you need a parent with you on your first day. Aside from that, you just need to have them sign the waiver.

Facebook says turtle is 15, but I guess he could lie about that. underage permission is solely granted by the Realm's officers and those are Heretic, Smithy, and ??? No one else can grant underage persons from playing in our realm.

Facebook requires you to be 15. And I'm sure smithy will be fine with anyone who comes as long as they have parents' consent. In fact, last practice, he taught three little (younger than turtle) kids who were hanging out at another event in the park. Unless they give him a reason not to, of course.

Smithy has always had a way with the little kids. Wink

Smithy likes to teach and to entertain, that doesn't mean he would let them on our field for our full contact fighting. So don't assume what smithy will say. Advise a younger person of the rules and say come out and check it out with your parents but let those in charge make the decisions as to weahter they can play or not. always let them know its not a given so that they will be prepared should they not be allowed. verstehen sie?

You're right, but at the same time, I think it will take a lot more than age to stop someone from joining in, unless they're under 10.

Enigma/Badger dude: Just come out to practice, check us out, bring a parent so they can see what we do and meet our group. Hit people with foam sticks, run around, have fun. Smile See you out on the field.

This brings up an interesting point for those under 16. For the most part there is no real reason you couldn't participate on the practice field unless you are on the smallish side or your parents don't approve. These are considerations that must be done face to face. So, as was stated by Tooka, come out with your parent(s) and see what it's like.

Honestly I would like to meet all the parents of our members who are under 16. Preferably before our event, where yes you can attend and be a part of it. You won't be able to take the field though.

I don't know maybe we could have a parents day or something. A Family Feud Dagorhir style. Parents vs. kids. Either way introductions should be made.

All that being what it is I would like to make the decision myself. It may be a case of 'no you can't fight on the field' but you could train with people off the field. Squire, in a sense.

Well just a few moments though I saw a thread about possibly having practices every other weekend on Sunday.. Is that in effect? Other than that, For the life of me I can't find the thread that shows exactly where and what time the practice is going to be.

Look at the topic heading "Getting Started" See the small print underneath? It says we practice Saturdays at Desert Breeze park starting at noon.

And we have 2 other practices by different units other than saturdays. The Black Lion practice is every tuesday, everyone is able to go. And Royal Army practice, which is every Wednesday, and that practice is only open to the Royal Army, or people who are thinking about joining it. (If you're new you can try it out but you don't have to join).
