I would like to register a complaint about the Heavy Knight's design

The Heavy Knight's helmet does not match his armour. He wears a great helm which arose in the 1200s and began to fall out of favor by the early 1300s. The Heavy Knight's armour is full plate which did not come about until the early 1400s, but his harness is from the late 1400s to early 1500s. A more appropriate helmet to match his body armour would be an armet such as this:

Here is a full plate harness:

This is a German Gothic harness from the 15th century:

This is an example of a suit of armour that a knight from the 1200s would wear with a great helm:
Note that the main body armor is a mail hauberk.

    That helmet looks like shit, though

    Alternatively, his armor could be changed to mail if we keep the current helmet.

    We can complain about skirm : they don't have shoes
    First shoes was invented by prehistoric human

    And the whole thing about the Berserker's bare-shirtedness, historians are sure that "berserkr" meant "bear shirt"!

    Pirates, vikings and knights aren't supposed to be in the same era, that's historically inaccurate.

    Denshin is a rather overpowered class.

    ok lets see if legionnaires post was funny shall we?

    First of he clearly "copied" trojans joke here:


    Well damn... i might lose some sleep over this tonight.


    Legionnaires version: "I can't sleep while pirate havn't shoes"'

    Ok after that obvious bite lets move on shall we...

    Lets take a look at legionnaires first paragraph were he made the joke about pirates

    "We can complain about skirm : they don't have shoes
    First shoes was invented by prehistoric human

    So add shoes to pirate or remplace his skin by a monkey"

    This is clearly sarcastic humor which is considered the upperechelon of humor also considered sophisticated humor. Now in order to really do sarcasm right people need a certain sophistication in their delivery.

    I am not trying to be a spelling nazi (god knows i dont spell very good either) because nobody cares that much about grammar on the internet but the fact is. His punchline was "So add shoes to pirate or remplace his skin by a monkey" in having the incorrect spelling of replace he actually "desophisticated" his sarcastic joke making it backfire.

    Now to the conclusion: Trying to be derogatory to OP when you clearly fail at it were as others succed (Take a look at trojans, denshins or enkidus posts) is just making you look ignorant.

    Does legonnaire win this thread? hardly i would say trojan or enkidu is in much better position of being the sarcastic a-hole of the day.

    Honestly I myself laughed out loud at Legionnaire's post. I found it hilarious and thought it was the most humorous post in the thread. In my opinion, his bad grammar added to the delivery.

    And by the way guys, the top post was not written by me, but by someone I tried to convince to play the game more. He said he doesn't like it because the "armor is wrong".

    why would he ruin his shoes by going into a bloody fight with them o.O? as shoe-shops were pretty rare at that time (theres none on tortuga) he´s just taking good care of them
