Redwall,
   I love european actors, just like my fav gal Nicole Kidman.

Minerva,
   Part of being in character is that you make up extra back stories when your off stage. The audiance doesn't need to know it, but it helps the cast.
   I tried out for, and as of yesterday, got a part in Annie Get Your Gun. I am one of three Indian girls. (Not necessarily a big part, but its still a part, so i'm satisfied.)

The siege engines totally sucked! There is no way a catapult with such an artless, awkward, bumbling, bungling, butterfingers, gauche, halting, inadept, incapable, incompetent, inefficient, inexpert, maladroit, unapt, undexterous, unfacile, ungraceful, unhandy, unproficient, unskillful design would be able to through a boulder at all. It wouldn't even make it ten feet!

I am your leading expert on medieval projectile launchers too.

Then what is the average velocity of an unladen European swallow?

You know, the general population of San Francisco doesn't appreciate having their name abbreviated to "San Fran" or the even more annoying "Frisco."

I know and agree, thoug you were a bit redundant there. They totaly used the wrong kind of wood. The whole system works of of a spring-like action, and the wood they used was way to solid! it wouldn't have bent back that far without breaking.

Cool. I just found out what my name is. "Turtle Dove" Not extremely creative, but it could have been worse.

Actually, the most efficient (and widely used in the middle ages) catapult was not the torsion catapult, like you describe, but something akin to the Trebuchet, which uses a counterweight system. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trebuchet

Why use catapults when you can use magic?

Bacause they didn't have the ability to wield magic, Duh! (argue THAT Red.)

Yes, but you still need to have the right kind of wood. It has to be able to spring foreward or it will shatter.

Does a lever or crowbar need to be springy? It's the same principle.

Perhaps not, but metal is less likely to snap when it bends foreward. AKA the wood needs to have enough spring to bend foreward on the follow through w/out breaking. Metal wouldn't snap, but wood might.

It doesn't need to bend so much. It's on a pivot...

The weight at the bottom of the trebuchet keeps the arm from hitting the ground.

Neither of you get my point. Not saying your wrong, you just don't get my point. When the wood moves foreward at high speeds, unless something pulls it into a back swing, it needs to be able to bend a little without breaking when it is stopped.

Not needed. The counterweight makes it a gradual stop. very little stress is put on the Trebuchet at all.

Do I have to draw a diagram???
