A hit is a hit is a hit.

So.. yes of course.
I see without fear my destiny. As the raging skies begin to fade, Pouring rain licks my wounds as my blood runs from torn flesh.
As i die, I hold my sword my only friend, And pray that Oden will take me home.

The rules don't say who has to hit you for you to be injured or killed. If they're on your team, it's still on your honor to take your hits.

3.4.  Weapon Damage: Weapons do varying amount of damage depending upon where they strike and whether the target area is armored.   A hit from a hand-held weapon counts when the weapon strikes solidly with substantial force.  A hit from a projectile (yellow) weapon counts when the head of the weapon merely strikes the target, stopping or being slightly deflected.

Considering "A hit is a hit is a hit," hitting yourself would usually entail that you lost a limb or died. Some groups probably don't even think about it, but it there may be some realms that greatly enforce it. Taking hits from yourself (whether accidently or on purpose) or teammates (same scenarios) would show a higher level of honesty and sportsmanship to many others, except for those who want the joy of being the ones to kill you. As for the rules, just take it at Rag, and if you desperately don't want to die by your own hand or that of a teammate, check with an event organizer at smaller events. Of course, it would be easier to just be a good sport and die a good death...

Before we divide up into teams for various scenarios during practice we do a meat grinder to determine who will the be the captains . . . last two standing. We older, more experienced folks will often "fall upon" our own weapons or team up with someone else and simul-kill in order to leave the new guys as the last ones standing. They then duel it out for first pick.

But to not totallt derail this thread . . . when I was learning my new red, I probably legged myself a dozen times.

3.4.  Weapon Damage: Weapons do varying amount of damage depending upon where they strike and whether the target area is armored.   A hit from a hand-held weapon counts when the weapon strikes solidly with [old rule]

Orrin - that's the old rule.  The newer ones (less this year's changes) are found here: http://www.digitalbonsai.com/dagrules-draft/

3.4 - Judging Hits:

hide3.4.1 - Hits from hand-held weapons count when the weapon strikes solidly with noticeable force. NOTE: what constitutes a “solid strike” is necessarily subjective and thus relies on the honor of both the attacker and the person who is struck.
3.4.2 - Hits from projectile weapons count when the head of the weapon merely strikes the target: stopping or being slightly deflected.

However, since archers are allowed to call their shots, if you accidentally hit your teammate in the back of the head, you can tell him or her that it wasn't a hit and they have to not take it.

This is true, Maggiepoofs, but the archer should appologize profusely to thier teammate and call them dead. A decent Herald should call out the archer and target both who ignore the rule.

To my shame I shot McEwan in the back of the head this weekend at Althyng. I told him to stop getting in the way. It happens, fortunately it was a res battle and he could go right back to being a target after a short walk.

What makes people like Magnus hate archery is the blatant ABUSE of the rules, if everyone followed them maybe archers wouldn't be so disliked. (I meant the rest of you though, nobody really dislikes me.)

I have had the issue while in battle that the enemy shield line gives a step back and my weapon arcs and hits the shield of the person next to me.  Normally I get to slow it down and not make it a shieldbreaker hit, but if it slams, well they should take it.  I hates it when it happens....

I like my teamates to have that feeling of what I like to call "Joker's Trust" You're my teamate until you're not my teamate anymore. If I feel like having a laugh at your confused look when I double green all my shieldmen in the back right before a charge? Well that's my prerogative.

At the last practice during a team battle, one of my one teammates ran up and cut off my arm...at least it was res :P

Just for laughs, I'd like to get someone from my chapter in on this for practice...but they'd be my second, and I'd "commit" sepukku during a meat grinder or team battle. I figure the rest of the folks would find it humorous ('specially if we hammed it up some):P I know I will :D

LOL.. I remember doing something like that in my old group in cali.  But the difference is we had funny people in robes called spellcasters.  Not the larpy  screaming fireball fireball types.  But anyways I ended up bludgeoning my shield wall. Till they took me out in force.   It was fun though.  That last part is epic by the way Laevus  :D.

This.  Period.  If a swing hits, take it, whether it was from a tough opponent, a noob, a teammate, or yourself.

We have been known to frequently commit suicide during a meat grinder for captains in order to make the new guys do it.

A great way to circumvent this that I learned at the Byzantium Opener.  Instead of playing "last two standing" as captains, play "first to die and last to die"  The confusion is extremely funny when people don't really realize how it works.


Also, I hate it when people kill themselves or "commit seppuku" when they are alone against tough odds.  I thought it was cool when I was new, now I just make sure I mutilate the corpses of those that do it. (just making sure, ya know, they mighta called light) :)

Good old Byzantium. We do things like that. And I believe that my good pal Grey is referring to the time BEFORE we started doing first/last to die. Ah, me and Unknown would kill each other all the time. Good times... good times. Of course, nowadays, Chicken makes me a captain after the captains are already picked because I stepped off the edge of the world, even though I was already dead. The leson hear is don't mess with the heralds. They will resurrect you, just so they can kill you again.... stupid abuse of power....

Oh, and I've never limbed or killed myself, though I often get hit in the head with my own weapon. Should I take a courtesy death on myself?
