    Bullies, any tips for armored fighting? Any ideas for epic awesome ass-beating on my first day? How much will I be mocked if I changed my avatar to me wearing platemail, standing over my vanguished foe?
    For armored fighting with weapons, use a DEEP, WIDE stance. The reason is twofold: because it will help with stability when fighting on uneven ground, and also to use the tremendous power generated from hip movement in a low stance, such as the position used in sumo and judo (jigotai).
    And if you put up that avatar, you're fair game.

    Why the marginalization? I have a feeling though that there might be an explination here beyond the scope of this thread.

    Dude, I don't mean to burst your bubble but you have to be a Lv. 2 Squire first before you can be a Knight.

    EDIT: Uh... for tips I guess... breathe through the nose?
    I mean I think it's basic but I see a lot of people forgetting this.
    I recently started doing it and I found out I gas out way slower.

    ..... those Dog Brother people scare the **** out of me.

    Remember to taunt your enemies. Also having squire to bang coconuts to simulate riding sounds is must.

    Curious: Are you planning on borrowing armor, buying it, or making it?
    Because the third is hella-fun.
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.
