I appreciate the input Darr. Maybe once a month I try something like that. And eh, I don't know. I may not let players retrieve their gear if they lost. I mean, come on, they lost. And prot 4 costs 10 sponges, and sharp 6 is 10 sponges. So no, players will not get their gear back if they lost, unless the victor wishes otherwise. By default, no gear returns. If someone wants to, they can, otherwise, they don't have to.
