Krvomeđe: fighting in the snow




Yesterday's Krvomeđe was a very interesting one. Well, first of all it suffered from a bad case of no-show - surprizingly, considering the popularity of the December battle. Only three of us appeared, so we weren't able to have the usual battlegames - Krvomeđe has the only regular battlegames in Croatia, featuring fighting (and no RP). We had several duels instead and went off to get a nice, warm cup of coffee. It's a pity that few players showed up - fighting in that snow that was there was something that's quite new, but it's probably what scared most of the potential players.

The snow was not overly deep, but the top of it was hard due to last week's rains, so an icy crust formed on top of the ice. On some parts you could walk on top of it - on others, or if you pressed on top of the ice hard enough, you could sink into the ankle-height snow, throwing you slightly off balance and slowing you down a bit. I guess lightweight combatants could probably run on top of the snow cover...



Temperatures were sunny, and sun reflected on the whiteness of the snow - making the battlefield extremely bright. Temperature was comfortably just under freezing, and the area was not windy, so it was quite comfortable - not to mention memorable due to the beautiful snowy environment.

Fighting on other types of the terrain could also be interesting...
