I have searched on here and was unable to find anything in prior threads, or at least the titles did not seem applicable, on being wounded.
Last weekend at an event I sort of noticed a trend that I had not really caught before. We are either alive or dead.
I did watch in between loading and firing, a wounded pard on the field. He is the only one I have witnessed in three events.
I know I am not the best read WBTS student but from what I have seen the wounded seemed to outnumber the dead by 4+:1 ratio.
I think it would be neat to see a green grassy field alive with wiggly blue and gray "heaps" begging for water and trying to save themselves.
If I do get "wounded" should I just lay there or do I try and get off the field? No brainer in real combat is to get out of harms way, but I know it varies with simulation. I have made "bloody" bandages to carry so spectators with good vision will get what I am doing.
Maybe I am barking up the wrong tree on this, its hard enough to get folks to take a hit anyways. I know we have some medical re-enactors at events maybe this would be a way for them to get some "air time" so to speak.
What do ya'll think on being wounded?
Im not trying to start chatter but I do want to know what would be appropriate.
