Hi, I'm thinking of hosting a 3-army battle at the Madison wrap-up. Do you have suggestions for how it would work? I'm thinking armbands or headbands that you try to snatch off, like in the mangas. It doesn't seem very battle-like though.

P.S. small correction about the Madison wrap-up. Middleton and Madison are basically the same city, and the state is Wisconsin.

Paintball or airsoft guns?

In NY, we haven't decided exactly what rules are best, but we're going to aim for short battle-rounds (15 minutes or so) and try out new rules each round, starting with the simplest ones.

For material components, we're getting a bunch of glowsticks, which can then be used as wands, rolled up into rings that you can toss at people while shouting "somnium" or whatever (knocking them out if they get hit), or attach lots of them together to make a circle of protection. (We'll play around with different configurations to see what's fun)
