I took, believe I'd pick the flamethrower, but I have a couple questions. Are you supposed to have training with your weapon of choice or are you just thrown into this situation and you happen to have this weapon. Also, what kind of sword are we talking? Katana, long sword, etc.?
No training just thrown into the situation. Long sword. Also consider this, lack of training with flamethrower and your setting the woods on fire which may cause trouble for escape and on a scarier note, you could have a pissed off on fire bear still coming at you.
The variables everyone has come up with has always been the best.
I just found this board an hour ago and I had to join. It seems like an awesome place, especially for a first time festival goer like myself!

Haha thanks, "lurking" makes it sound a bit creepy, but it's a great forum and someone has already asked any questions I've ever had!
Agreed--I feel like a creeper saying I lurk in the forums...feel like I should be peeking in windows and stuff
Yea but if you can't respond to any threads, you get hours back from your life: Now the debate could be if those hours doing whatever are better spent doing more important things than posting on the Roo board .... cr****
