    Fun idea. I would make it so a catapult can damage players while inside a house.

    Catapults would be a great addition to the game! I guess since we have cannons no one ever considered adding them. They could even be used as a new type of pvp, for example two factions are fighting, and if one team has a tinker he can build a catapult in the middle of the battle to attack the enemy, and would have to stay next to it to repair it. If the enemy team wants to get rid of it, they would have to kill the tinker and disable the catapult.

    We have cannons, the next logical evolution is small arms.

    Because there is no real Siege stuff. We can't lay siege to someone's home or anything.

    Well....before trammel people did sort of siege their enemies houses.... they would just kill the owner every time he tried to open the house door to refresh it and eventually the house would decay. I always thought it was kinda dumb.

    I could see times when it would be a very fun option to add to possibly warring. Allowing things like that on a say timerred basis. I could see where it might be a lot of fun. Would add a whole heck of a lot more to capture the flag type events and such. And would certainly add a lot to rp type events.

    I love it! be a grate idea to add into the game for use in pvp as deco/use item. If it was me I would make it to where it is only usable in pvp if its in a classic house (castle, keep,and tower) I could totally see pvper's having a bit of fun whit them whether it be a good fun or bad fun.

    I wanna catapult bag balls filled with fished up shoes and sandles and thighboots and other stuff I don't want. Could be a good game to play at the Luna Game arena.

    Some years ago at an SCA event called Pennsic a couple of us had a water balloon fight using catapults. I was pretty surprised how accurate my not then husband could be with that.

    Don't recall this as you can use telekinesis to open your own house door. Never even had to walk up to the door to refresh it.

    People would hope to rush in, if they were paying attention at the right time.
