- Jul 5, 2013Scores improve???
In Æthelmearc no one touches any arrows until the scoring marshal is
present (exception - deadwood or *noncounters*) Seldom do we allow archers
to 'score' their own rounds and report to the marshal that score (although
I *have* done that on occasion with archers I personally trust [usually a
Marshal in their own right]) The count is added as the arrow is pulled and
I can watch for any inadvertant 'movement' of the target. (Other marshals
add all the arrows *prior* to removal if the target is not "buried" with
an intense cluster of arrows in one area.) Either method requires a
scoring Marshal to be present and witnissing the score. Ergo, little
chance of "cheating" the score.
