I know people sometimes sponsor tournaments in the arena for sparring and such. I was wondering if we could get a shooting range with bull's-eye targets and distance range markers for those who wish to compete with their marksmanship in the arena?

If multiple bull's-eye targets could be placed with varying distances (and maybe modify their AC - to hit [from the spectrum of very easy to nigh impossible to hit unless you're a ranged god] - and the competitor could simply examine the target to determine how hard or easy the target is to hit etc.) I think it would make an interesting (robin hood-ish) test of skill and sportmanship without the bloodshed. Not that the bloodshed is bad since it's in the arena, afterall, but it'd be nice to congratulate your opponent when he/she wins while you're still alive, ya know.

It'd be nice to add lines and markers (fences etc.) to actually specify starting locations, judge boxes, spectator locations etc. (kinda like a court).

It would be nice for us less-recognized ranged fighters to show off our slinging, archery, dart-throwing, axe-throwing, shuriken etc. skills or to simply settle difference through a friendly game of "darts" with a nice frothy pint of ale. icon_wink.gif

Just my $0.02

Thanks for hearin' me out

Oooohhh, this is a nice idea...I like even though I never use ranged weapons. It'd be a cool Roleplay opportunity, and it would be very nice to see some competition out there without people killing eachother all the time...

all these other posts were single line and thus spam.

It'd be better I think to base a game off of these, with a script on the "On attacked" slot that tells you the score of your shot (Bullseye, 1st ring, etc and a point value (100 pts for a bullseye))with set area depending on your roll (50+ = bullseye, 40 = 1st ring, 30 = 2nd ring, etc) and you play it as a game similar to the BlackJack game.

see teapot deomstrates a good point here, first tp brings up the point that spam is best used when its in long paragraphs when it is not to be considered spam but more just looks like u have some thing to say. Secondly Tp brings up a great addition to the idea started by gl-ide. I think that is what we should be doing instead of saying, Good job bri. we should be saying "well it could be made possible by doing this"

good job tp! cool.gif

I wasn't saying how it could be done, i was offering a modification, instead of a range or AC bump, it could get the attack roll and determine a score based on that. that way we won't have a seemingly diamond or adamantite target on our shooting range, but simply a different score. this will be a bit harder to make, but it could give a better, more polished look to the Shooting range.

Also glorin, i love the Ironic twist of your "TP brings up a good point that spam should be used in long paragraphs", It seemed so appropriate for your post...
