Dagorhir weapons are constructed to resemble Dark Age/medieval swords, shields, spears, etc. and generally consist of soft foam layers bonded to a rigid core. Combatants may also become involved in grappling/wrestling. Dagorhir rules of combat are strictly enforced by the Heralds (referees) to ensure maximum safety along with maximum playability.
