As Tuppence said, attacking banner bearers is frowned upon.Zachos wrote:I want a smaller sword. The one I have at the moment is too long for only one hand.
I did some banner bearing the other week. It was so much more tiring than fighting: I suppose you don't get the adrenaline running like you do with combat. No one would fight me either. Was very upset.
Mind you at Blore a couple of years ago, the Stanleys had their banner on a spear. The banner bearer lowered it and reversed it to use the spear. I spotted this and cut his leg before everyone jumped on me.
A decent bow is always a good investment, like a decent sword- if you give up after only a couple of yers you can sell it on, and if its a good one there is less chance of it breaking in use.
