Poll: If you were forced to duel but you got to pick the means, which of these would you choose? *PLEASE READ THE STIPULATIONS* (24 votes)

Dueling Pistols 13%
Six Shooters 0%
Rapiers 4%
Knives 0%
Switches 4%
Quarterstaves 21%
Lawn Darts 0%
Paintball Guns 17%
Bare Knuckles 33%
Your Champions 8%

I don't intend for this to be whether or not you think you'll win so I'll make it easy & have your opponent be a pampered, delusional, narcissistic, aristocratic, sissy with about the same level of fencing skills as your average high school senior, part time fencing hobbyist but no other desirable skills.

Dueling Pistols

This one is your standard flintlock pistols, walk 10 paces, turn around & shoot.

Six Shooters

This one is just an old wild west quick draw. Although those rarely ever actually happened IRL.

Rapiers

Just your standard sword fight in the courtyard.

Knives

Okay for this one you'll have your wrists tied together. Whether your right or left handed, so is your opponent.

Switches

Clothes off, just trunks & you'll pretty much just whip each other till someones had enough & gives up.

Quarterstaves

This one is on a log or beam, first to fall off or be rendered unconscious, or dead loses.

Lawn Darts

Have you ever played the game with lawn darts where you each stand in a ring (In my case a hula hoop) some yards from each other & try to throw your dart into the ring & try make your buddy dodge it? This is that, if you jump out of the ring you lose. If you get hit but can still continue then there will be a second, third, forth round etc...Until someone jumps out, dies or give up.

Paintball Guns

This one will have a 30 minute time limit & whom ever is most saturated at the end loses so you can take multiple hits & still stay in.

Takes place here

Bare Knuckles

JUST BRAWL!!!

Your Champions

You may opt to have your champion duel on your behalf but if you do your opponent will opt for his as well but otherwise will not.

Your Champion

Don't worry he's really good at paintball.

Your opponents Champion

Quarterstaffs. Quarterstaff was the first weapon I ever learned to use when I was about fifteen (34 years ago) and I've taught it to a number of people. Even in my present state of disrepair I feel highly confident I can bat this little idiot around and knock him off the beam/log and only bruise him up moderately. He WILL be humiliated some and will HOPEFULLY learn a lesson about not challenging people to duels over nothing that could end his life. (What if I had chosen pistols for instance?)

Rapier or six shooter. I'm comfortable and reasonably competent with a rapier and I'm a decent shot.

@dr_shenanigans: Bummer, I'm a lot better at archery than lawn darts.

I was gonna have arm wrestling & jousting too but I wanted to narrow it down to 10.

Nope, which is my only worry. But I imagine my opponent hasn't, either, and unlike him I've actually fired guns.

Like 65% of the time I "jump the gun" so to speak & just put it right in the ground. It's really a lot harder then I had anticipated. I don't see how the hell that one dude can shoot 6 target in 1/8 of a second. That shit is insane.

lol Actually you're right. I've been calling them the wrong thing all this time just because I don't like the word "staves". I don't know why, I just don't. It's definitely staves.

Nah they're actually both correct.

staff/staffs: a long stick used as a support when walking or climbing or as a weapon.

stave: a strong wooden stick or iron pole used as a weapon.

So yeah it's interchangeable but staves is considered an archaic term.

I don't know man, there's nothing quite like the feeling you get when you nail someone with a paintball.

Yeah that stings a bit, my machismo doesn't allow for me to wear armor, only eye protection because I'm macho not stupid...Maybe a little stupid.

That would be funny to pelt him with paint balls for a half an hour while he's curled up in the fetal position crying.
