(I posted this as "Bladehand" before, but I decided I didn't like the name)


Journeyman (Weaponsmith): “Arms of Stone”

To be completed on or before: Whenever, but the weapons must be at least a year old to pass for this, so...

To be completed by: anyone trying for Journeyman rank. You can complete this challenge regardless of your rank.

_____________________________________________________________
Construct an amount of gear for the purpose of providing loaner gear for new/ ill-equipped/blade-breakage-befallen members.

Weapons totaling 7 points:

1/2 Point: Daggers, Rocks (no more than 2 points may be obtained from half-point items)

1 Point: Non-flail Blue, Shortspear (3-6' green), Arrows (no more than 4 arrows), Buckler (Forearm-sized shield)

2 Points: Heater or Round shield (Torso cover), Flail, Red-only sword or polearm, Longspear (over 6'), Javelin

3 Points: Kite, Tower, or large round shields (neck to knee or lower), Red-Green sword or polearm.

These weapons should be purpose-built (the idea being that, in assessing the quality of these brand-new pieces, we can get a good idea of what types of weapons you can consistently craft).

Emphasis should be placed on durability and safety. They need not be exceptionally well balanced or visually attractive, but a loaner weapon should be expected to pass without question of safety for a year or so. Any aspects that are maintenance-intensive (thin covers, stabbing tips for blues or reds) should probably be avoided.

If a weapon created to fulfill this requirement should fail before the year is up, the smith should promptly (within 2 weeks) repair it. If repairs prove impossible, or are frequently required, the weapon shall not count towards the point total.

Shields of ambiguous dimension shall be considered to be the smaller of whichever two categories they may realistically fit into, unless compelling argument (read: bribes) are presented to the contrary.

To qualify as meeting these requirements, the smith must provide a brief description of the designs/materials used and cite multiple weapons checkers as having passed the weapons over a sufficient time period. The weapons don't need to be donated to the realm (though that would be nice), but use of a "loaner" weapon should not be refused to anyone unless the crafter/owner fears for the safety of either a participant or the weapons themselves. The intent of this requirement is that these weapons should be used often, and not by someone who has a vested interest in them not breaking, as a true test of their durability. They may be sold or otherwise removed from the possession of the smith, however, responsibility for their upkeep shall remain that of the smith. The smith shouldn't use these weapons or equipment unless no other participant (no matter how inexperienced) wants to.

non-flail blues are worth one point. are flails worth more, or do they simply not count for this challenge? we have a couple of flails at practice that have held up nicely.

whoops, meant for them to be worth 2, since making them is a little more involved than making a normal blue.
