Mordhau comes out on Monday and I'll be at uni until the weekend.

There's the morningstar, which we call "morgenster" but is often called "goedendag" by mistake. While ingame it's 1H the size irl varied but was often fit for 2H. I'm no expert though I'm going off memory and wikipedia here. Apparently holy water sprinklers and other spiked "maces" fall under this as well, and "mace" implies not-spiked. Because the smaller ones function enough like maces for ingame, I think the game uses "eveningstar" to help differentiate the big ones from them. I can't find that as a weapon name anywhere.

Worse is when people call a flail "goedendag". The proper Dutch word for that is "slingerknots" which translates roughly to "swinging/dangling mace".

It could be either, it's not clear. The main written source is actually French and says "Goden-dac, c'est Bonjour à dire", but this chronicle was written in rhyme so maybe it was meant to be a play on words.

Now that we're necroing anyway: while modern Dutch uses the word "dolk", "dag" and "dagge" were used in the Medieval Dutch dialects for "dagger". Because the point (which is more slender irl than ingame) allows it to stab like a dagger while being more mobile than a long spear, it was supposedly called a "good dagger" or "goeden/gooden dag".

And yeah, the ingame model has a thicker point and small spikes on the side, but I prefer to suspend my disbelief here. The point is more comparable to that of a spear but a spear skin wouldn't do the clubbing function justice.
I'm just happy they didn't name a flail "goedendag". Anway it's not like Triternion can tarnish Flemish culture more than that guy has.

I wasn't the most active during the alpha but I must say it's been a delight. I look forward to bumping into EU testers every so often.

Edit: in all seriousness a earlier type of brigandine would be sick, we just don't have any time atm

Sounds like confirmation for post-release :^)

On a side note DAE think this pavise guy looks like Louis de Funès?

They'd have to make it clearly different from the """tabard""" by doing at least one of the following:

  • retire the T3 "tabard" (probably a good idea anyway, sorry artists)
  • lock it to a unique waistpiece with some exposed chainmail to show it's T2
  • expose chainmail of the chestpiece at the sides to show it's T2
  • do nothing because T2 helmets with hoods exist

Also we could use a straighter brigandine / coat of plates which tapers more to the body near the waist like pic related. It would look better with a lot of the currently available waistpieces imo. Maybe name it "Footsoldiers brigandine" or something idk.
guess what I'm up to.jpg

Some Bronze Age tribe in Denmark had horned helmets, as well as some 100 BC Gaulic tribe near Waterloo. These were all ceremonial though so the most likely instance of it being found on a battlefield is either as loot or worn by a shaman or druid or something. Or maybe on some selected shock/morale troops.

Pretty sure 4th century AD Germanic invaders have been depicted with horned helmets as well, but I don't think they found actual helmets resembling the artwork. Idk Rome was pretty Christian by then, maybe the art patrons just liked to associate pagans (or heretics, Arianism had been spreading through Germania) with horns. Maybe they saw the horns for the first time on ceremonial helmets. Idk I'm speculating here.

Make it so that if you feint the ball still continues to swing, interacting normally with opponent parry. If you kill someone WITHOUT feinting the ball keeps going and hits you in the head, which allows you to double KO.

Also horned helmets are a meme

unless we look at some tribes way before Mordhau's timeframe I guess

Might does not make right.
Test it.
