    The Men in Tights

    Post by Tolvo on Thu Apr 12, 2012 9:13 am




    Robin Hood: Men in Tights _ Men In Tights by hulu

    Let's face it, you've got to be a Man to wear Tights!


    Hello there my fellow manly men! I am here to talk with you about that rambunctious and joyous band of hunters who roam the forest stealing souls from the rich and ignoring the poor, yes those illustrious Men in Tights! Those who seek to protect the weak and keep the forest clean of any and all who fight against the simple idea of having fun and being friendly to all! First, let me lay down a few ground rules.

    1: Members must not send hatemail ever.
    2: Always wear a pair of tights, or the Pharis Hat.
    3: Kill any and all Gankers.
    4: Bow to any seeking a jolly fight.
    5: Ignore people genuinely going for the boss.
    6: Always be kind and courteous.
    7: Never take part in a gank.
    8: Always offer help to those in need.


    The Uniform

    Now then, I would love for everyone to run around in a fully outfit but for the time being and for the sake of being practical, there will be two ways to identify a member. The main one is a pair of tights worn, the only issue being as a phantom it is a bit hard to tell. So, I am actually willing to look past a pair of tights, and say the Pharis Hat will be our pure symbol. Wear it proud and always, as well it will help show we are not looking to Min-Max and instead have a great time fighting and hunting! As for tights, well you could always be wearing them under your armor haha. I personally will be invading in the full leather set, which I urge you to but other than that hat I don't really mind anything else.

    Level

    Being forest hunters we actually have no level restrictions at all thankfully! You can make your toons belong to whatever weight class you want, however for my best fighters I'd love for you to keep SL 120 toons for the sake of helping out with fight club and participating! Remember, we love to fight for the joy of it, and that's the whole point of fight club.

    Our Enemies.

    Gankers, BS Fishers, and anyone out to ruin the community and hurt our friends! Being exclusive to the forest means we don't have to worry much about a lot of other covenants, as well we can only really be fighting red spirits or hosts. Remember, we are men of honour and civility when we're fighting, but when you see someone doing a dark deed feel free to use the forest however you see fit! We are pleasant people, not fools after all haha.


    Our Allies and Friends

    Treat any fellow hunter, Darkmoon, or Wraith with kindest of regards. While this covenant requires members to be Forest Hunters exclusively, we have no qualms with those who are helping us out. Offer them aid as well if it seems like they need it, but remember never gank! Gravelords of course are always to be spared, and if you have any eyes of death drop a few for these kindred spirits who help us keep the fight going!

    Members List

    Here you will find a list of all the current members of the Men in Tights, hopefully you see your name here.

    Tolvo of Locksley

    Tights of Old

    Some have come and gone, but their names will always live on in our halls.  These are members who have gone with honors, holding up the way of the Tights until their time of service ended.  

    Rin Blinkin

    TehinfamousAchu (Natalia Included)

    Mr. Doughboy Thaddeus III

    Little Skarekrow AKA The Dark Scythe

    Cloudeki Scarlet O'Hara

    Mildred Latrine

    Yesuurd

    Befowler

    Billy Bayonet, Billy Born.

    Sunbro4ever, and his sticky tights.

    Fattyofdoom, and his big tights.

    Shkar the Cardless

    Remember, if you are interested in joining our band of merry men merely set up a duel with me as your test.  All you have to do is duel me, and let me see just how you play.  While we will be working with FC, for our fight I'll only have these rules.  No healing, and that is all.  Based on your play style I will decide if you fit into the group or not.  I am setting up characters for a wide range of SL's, so I should be able to duel between SL 1-225 when the time is right.  If you want to use a toon for this that I cannot meet with, you can still duel me on any one of your toons.


    I will also do judgements based on a video if you are on another console, or if we cannot connect with one another.

    Current Events and News

    Here I will keep everyone posted on mass invasions, duel gatherings, special FC days, and other events that could be going on. As well if we are voting on anything I'll also post the idea here, sides, etc. Hopefully soon we shall be seeing some special action going on in the forest after how well Forest of the Damned went.

    Planned

    Currently we do not have any in the works.

    In the Works

    I would love to discuss the idea of a Bows only night, Fight Club style. Maybe we could even get Fight Club to sponsor this and get a ton of people together doing this at SL120, what do you guys think?

    Voting

    Would people be interested in a Cross dress event? Us wearing the clothes of maidens looking harmless while invading, then suddenly pulling out our weapons to strike! Anyone interested?

    The Bonfire

    This thread will act as our home base and camp, while we can discuss tactics and ideas for events, as well as chat with one another it is also great to exchange stories about our exploits. Like a bonfire I'd love to see your stories kindle this thread with glimpses of humanity. I find we can grow together a lot easier if we see the plights and triumphs of each other, so never feel too bad about sharing and awesome story about killing a group of three using a bow! Sit down, have some roast boar, and talk till your fannies grow numb from sitting around.

    Black Iron Leggings
    Chain Leggings
    Iron Leggings
    Hollow Thief's Tights
    Black Tights
    Black Leather Trousers
    Leather Trousers

    You should see the whole movie as well, it is hilarious.

    I haven't set up the join requirements so far, but right now I'm looking at is being a PSN exclusive, and that one must duel me and I shall make a judgement based on the duel.

    Farmer Tarkus must contemplate which tights look best with Black Iron. If we shall duel I propose a true Men in Tights affair. I say I shall meet ye on a bridge with sticks. Preferably over a shallow, harmless body of water. Seriously....we should duel with no weapons but catalysts two handed.

    I find black leather goes best with black iron. For it to be truly manly you must duel bare handed.

    勝誠

    Masaru Makoto, the leader of the Isamu Masao(勇藤)clan had heard of the fabled Shinrin Karyuudo Clan in the western forests of Darkroot. He had the initiative to join his Clan member Shiva on a journey to the distant land of Lordran; this journey was unlike any other he had experienced. Treachery was all he found with Shiva, during the third night of their trek Makoto was attacked by Shiva during his sleep, being unarmed due to Shiva's theft of his Murakumo he swiftly used many of the hidden techniques taught to him by the guardian spirits of the Masao, after a long hefty battle Shiva fled. The trip to the forest took many more days, and to his dismay when he reached the forest he found Shiva standing as the Captain of the Karyuudo. His first instinct was to confront Shiva although unarmed he would not be able to do this, he met with the holder of the Black Bow of Pharis, this unnamed person agreed to help Masuru under one condition, that he would make a blood pact to defend this forest against invaders with his life. Now Tolvo and Masuru lay waste to all trespassers with his Trusty Murakumo(Tadashi) and Tolvo's choice weapon.


    Sorry about it being a bit crap but I wasnt in a very creative mood

    Nice work Amos.....

    DoughGuy, the movie RH: MiT has a great parody of the staff fight between Robin and John in the older film. They square off over a tiny stream and their staffs keep breaking (Tolvo, only catalysts with 0 durability left duel?) until they're left with little sticks, whacking each others' knuckles. John falls in the stream and thinks he's drowning despite it barely being able to get him wet. Hilarious moment in cinema. Man I love Mel Brooks.

    I will post when and where duels will be held for you guys as I get around to it, I have a bit of a headache so I'm going to be working on this slowly. I might be able to hold duels in the Moonlight butterfly area, but definitely not in the main forest. I have no clue how the hell we could ever meet up there haha. As well with the duelling people don't have to beat me, I just have to see your playstyle. It's odd to say but I just get vibes and feelings from seeing people play, and from that I'll decide just who fits in and who doesn't.

    Skare, I am perfectly fine with that idea, in fact it would be hilarious if someone could record it. We could start with Iz cats, move to Sorc cats, then end on ool cats. The Spear 2H block also looks exactly like it.

    EDIT: I'm also setting up a new PSN account which will be based around this, so all of the toons related to this cov will be found on that one, when I get them to the point of proper PvP I'll let you guys know the account so you can add it.

    Sadly all I have is my phone to record. It does pretty well in well lit areas in game. I did my 1,000 prism stone "Quest to the Eighth Color" attempt with it and that came out ok.

    Looks like a pretty solid build to me, a fun one as well given the low poise.

    I feel like someone should make a covenant that focuses on searching for lore, and name it History of the Dark Soul Part 1.
