so yes i'm takin up more board space EAT IT. I know some peopls don't have the MOA saved to their comp like me and can't find it/ too lazy to so here is all the rules i can find for blues, i'll do reds and the like later, ENJOY

3.2.2.1. Blue melee weapons are shorter hacking and smashing weapons which
are intended to be used primarily with one hand. Blue weapons cannot be
considered red weapons even when used with two hands.
4.1.3. A safe Dagorhir weapon is one which when used as intended will result in bruises,
break bones, or knock out teeth if an unarmored person is struck with a full-strength
swing. [Hits to the head from hand-held weapons are illegal but can happen by
accident.]
4.1.4. All weapons must have cloth covering over all striking surfaces.
4.1.5 Two- and & a half-inch rule: Projectile weapon tips (arrows, javelins and rocks)
and melee weapon tips designed for stabbing (green sword points, spear tips, etc.)
shall not easily pass more than 0.5 inch through a 2.5 inch-diameter hole. This
measurement shall be conducted by lowering a testing template onto the tip of the
weapon perpendicular to the edge or shaft of the weapon. The intent is to test the
thrusting tip of the weapon, not to search for weapon head corners which can be
manipulated to pass through the template
4.1.6. Two-inch rule: Weapon tips NOT designed for thrusting (non-stabbing sword
points, flail haft tip, etc.) shall not easily pass more than 0.5 inch through a 2 inch
diameter hole. This measurement shall be conducted by lowering the testing template
onto the tip of the weapon perpendicular to the edge or shaft of the weapon. The
intent is to test the tip of the weapon, not to search for sword and axe head corners
that can pass through the template.
4.1.7. The flat (non-striking surface) of bladed weapons must be safely padded to
prevent injury from hits from the flat of the blade.
4.1.8. Hafts on axes, flails, maces, polearms, and the like must be safely padded except
for a reasonable area for a handhold. This means the haft padding on swung
weapons must be as safe as their striking surface. The haft on spears (which are
thrusting-only weapons) is not required to be as heavily-padded as that of a swung
weapon.
4.1.9. No swung weapon may have more than 1/3 of its overall length unpadded, nor
have more than 30” unpadded.
4.1.10. Single-edged weapons such as glaives and cutlasses must have their non-striking
edge clearly marked with a 12-inch long piece of silver or gray tape at least 1 inch
wide.
4.1.11.1. The pommel of a weapon must be padded to prevent injury in the event
of an accidental “hit” and must not easily go through a 2 inch-diameter hole.
4.1.11.2. All bladed weapons must conform to the following:
4.1. 11.2.1. Minimum dimensions of 1.25 inch by 3 inches.
4.1.11.2.2 Minimum dimensions for single edged bladed weapons are 1.25 by
2.5 inches
4.1.11.2.2. Blue weapons must weigh a minimum of 12 ounces.
4.1.11.2.3. Balance above the top of the handle (i.e., blade heavier than
handle).
4.1.11.3. The shaft or blade of a red or blue weapon may not flex greater than 45
degrees when the weapon is swung in the plane/direction of the striking
surface.
4.1.11.5. No weapons other than aluminum-shafted arrows may have metal
cores.
4.1.11.6. No weapon may have a spike or blade at the butt (pommel) end. Note
that double-ended weapons (below) may have stabbing points at ends; this is
different from a blue sword with a green stabbing spike on the pommel.
4.1.11.8. Double-ended weapons such as quarter staves are always considered to
be blue weapons.
4.1.11.9. Any weapon with a wooden core must have all wood covered with
tape.
4.1.11.10. Disallowed weapons include but are not limited to: Nets, lassos,
pungee sticks, nunchucks, tonfas, double-ended daggers, punch daggers
4.2.1. Blue weapons are edged (hacking) or mass (smashing) melee weapons intended
primarily for one-handed use.
4.2.2. Blue swords must have a minimum blade length of 12 inches from above the
handgrip to the tip and a maximum total length less than 48 inches.
4.2.3. Blue weapons other than flails may have green stabbing tips or spikes.
4.2.4. Flails:
4.2.4.1. The ball of a flail must have a minimum circumference of 16 inches
(measured at its narrowest point) and weigh a minimum weight of 4 oz.
4.2.4.2. The end of flail haft must follow the 2 inch rule (Rule 4.1.6)
4.2.4.3. The maximum “chain” length on a flail is 6 inches.
4.2.4.4. The rope or cloth of the flail “chain” must be completely covered with
segmented foam (rings) to reduce the risk of injury if the chain strikes a
fighter and reduce the risk of the chain wrapping a weapon or limb.
4.2.4.5. Flails are always blue weapons regardless of length.
4.2.5. Double-ended Weapons (Quarterstaves or double-bladed swords)
4.2.5.1. Double-ended weapons must not be more than 7 feet long.
4.2.5.2. Double-ended weapons must have a minimum of 18 inches of
cylindrically padded striking surface on each end.
4.2.5.3 Both ends must pass as green or neither end will pass as green stabbing
points.

People know where to find the MOA Tyr. And if they didn't know you could have posted a link instead of the entire thing. I'm not going to delete it this time. In the future please don't eat up so much space by posting things like this. Thank you.

I agree with Iohn. HOWEVER, the MoA as posted on the Dag homepage is not necessarily accurate, as I don't think it has been updated since what, 2005? It would be nice for someone to post the most recent additions/changes that have taken place so that we know which parts of the MoA we can trust, and which we cannot. Sad but true, ex: the spear/javvie flex rule change is not in the MoA as posted on the Dag homepage. Everyone has access to the MoA, re-posting it from the dag page is unnecessary. If you can read it from the forums, you can read it from the dag website.

hmmmm, I don't see any differences here but if there are any I'd really like you to start a thread showing those (but not the rules that haven't changed since the 2005 MoA).
