The ballista thing failed... but on the plus side a friend and I put together most of a catapult in about half an hour. It will have about a 5 inch basin from which to hold boulders. We need some rules for it.

I propose that if you get hit with it, your dead, if you block it with a non shield your dead, and if you block it with a shield, it takes 2 red hits basically. I also propose that it should be a closed cell core with an open cell covering... though I have never made a weapon or anything out of foam take my last thought with a grain of salt.

(P.S. my friend is an engineering mastermind... Back in second grade instead of doodling and drawing stick figures fighting like most kids did he drew diagrams and plans for catapults and ballistas and trebs and...)
(P.P.S. if anyone has some spare foam boulders let me know)

This is great. Just keep in mind that the min. diameter for "rocks" in Dagorhir is 4". So the 5" basin may be too small for anything but min. diameter rocks. Also, the smaller the rock is, the less it would weigh (unless weighted with a bean bag or something) and the shorter its range.

At Rag 23, they used siege weapons. If you got hit by them in any way (shield, body, or armor) you were instantly dead. Regardless.

I shall take some pics when my friend and I get it finished. Iohn, what size rocks would you say to make then? I can always construct a bigger firing basin if given enough notice.

So, why did the ballistae fail? Is it something that can be modified easily?

The ballista failed because my friend said it would cost $200 in materials he also said that we could make the catapult out of spare wood at his house for free. So the ballista didn't really fail, it just never god started. It prolly costs less than what he said, but whatever... I just need a siege weapon.
