    Re: Samurai vs. Knight

    I'll be waiting anxiously for the Ninja vs Pirates, but what about the midgets that accompany the pirates? Don't they get a chance to be involved?

    Since I decided on samurai last time, I will now go with the knight. As a matter of fact, he would have to be a midget knight, with an equally midget sized sword, or club. Kind of like the Aghar from the Dragonlance series.

    Actually, there were matchlock rifles in Europe as far back as the 13th century(?). I think it was called a Harquebus?

    I have gotta go for Knights. I'm really fond of chivalry even though it no longer exist.

    Where the European Knights would excel would be in mass field tactics. Most of your classic Samurai of film and literature are Ronin (masterless) Samurai, who work independently, and have no experience in going up against Pike and Shield wall... A Swiss Pike Square would also make mincemeat out of most classic Japanese infantry formations as well...

    I really think no one can make a point better than Len. I believe both warriors have their faults and it would be an even battle.

    Samurai's would lose in armor because they can't move as quickly as normal, same thing with.
    Knights who lose their armor would lose because they can't defend themselves very well without their damn armor.
    Besides even when at a disadvantage the samurai can kick a knights butt any day of the week. No matter how strong the damn knight is a samurai will always win.

    So there, Knights will get their asses kicked so hard by the Samurais
    lol yeah i agree to what blade said, i dont like knights..i think they're too posh in a way.
