  • P'Terodactyl Hunt

    October 1st, 2004
    swat, gaming  [html]
    The P'Terodactyl Hunt is a grand SWIL tradition in the spit of swords, sorcery and second grade. The basic premise is, run around with foam swords hitting each other. There is a bit of a plot in that we (the hunters) are ostensibly trying to kill enough monsters (with a bounty on each head) to buy a p'terodactyl-hunting license and bring that endangered breed one step closer to extinction.

    Standard attire was a trashbag; white for hunters, black for monsters, and a foam sword. No real rules except that hits only count within the trashbag area, and when you die, you have to go to an inconvenient place to respawn. Much fun ensued.
