Cookie Eating Huskarl said:Bull**** on two accounts. Kendo has always been mild in its approach to sword fighting because it assumes the blow to land on armor, not cut into torsos and wounding limbs, and thus the defense stance they conjure up is unusable in a proper sword fight. What you are looking for is either traditional kenjutusu or pre kendo swords schools. Kenjutsu is common today, but pre kendo sword schools I have no idea.General Darius said:Kendo (way of the samurai)
people forget that martial arts doesnt need to be bare handed. Weapons are still of martial arts people
Also, there is saying that the weapon is the extension of the fist (or palm, depending on who you ask). Sword fighters are expected to know how to defend themselves without a sword. Or as the old Chinese saying goes, A true swordsman's sword is his arms (or legs as well, depending on who you ask).

I honestly wanna play a more realistic game
I can see a single sabertooth if you have the highest tame skill and persuasion skill and maybe another skill that would let you have such
but an entire army of animals? i cannot see that
Zarthas said:Originally I had wanted to play with that concept. I realize that's probably beyond the scope of what I'll be able to do at this point, but it does exist to a degree. Bows for example, are rare, and difficult to acquire. You start out with really no skill in archery, since you've never used one, and almost all bows require a level or two of power draw, meaning once you find one, you'll have to invest some time learning to use it.
I am playing with some ideas related to taming animals. The Riding skill is now replaced with Taming, and ideally in the future would be used to capture wild animals and get them to obey you! Difficulty would depend on the beast of course. I think using this method, you might be able to eventually tame a wild horse... and be the only Man in Calradia with a steed
