Re: [SCA-Archery] Period, non-period, and crossbows. WAS: Re: Crossbows vs Others
- If you gather 20 archers on a line you may see one pair of gym shoes, but you will see only one or two period bows. The latter issue is the one I am trying to address. I don't really like rules that force people to play a certain way only, so I am not in favor of wholesale changes to the equipment standards. What I would like to see is some kind of a fun, but optional, period equipment incentive.Awhile back, there was discussion of a period archery guild. How do people feel about that? I didn't get a lot of feedback on the archer achievement idea, was it too intensive and to hard to implement? Perhaps something scaled back?-EoganOn Thu, May 23, 2013 at 11:57 AM, Karl W.

It should be left to other parts of the SCA to encourage everything not related to archery.Taran mac Derelei

- Having read comments, and having almost been driven away by one obsessed with perfection, my concern is omission. I like the concept that was presented that included archers like myself. Limiting a guild to only those with period equipment is exclusionary and could end up fragmenting our community. I could, however, be misunderstanding your use of the term "period" and the inclusion of those with non-period equipment. IMHO, if this guild is to be proposed as a society-wide entity it can't exclude any portion of our community and be successful.
