Re: Ranger patrol tactics

Wow. Thank you for answering the call in the real world, and thank you very much for sharing your experience here! The difference technology makes to required numbers makes a lot of sense. It also makes me all the more puzzled at the numbers of the Grey Company that arrive with Halbarad - a scarce t...

Re: New Tolkien exhibit in Oxford and beautiful catalog book

Oh.... that does look interesting!

Seems there's a lot of really intriguing things coming out from the archives lately: am I just only paying attention lately, or has the pace picked up a bit?

Re: knife sheath attatchments - what's your favorite?

Thanks for the advice all! Yes, I don't think a scabbard mount is gonna work for me, handy as it sounds. And the small of my back is taken up with a needwallet (which I need to remake at some point: I want it to be a bit taller and narrower so as to properly hold a cordial bottle). The more I think ...

Re: I needed some action shots for my website.

Well that looks like a grand time!

The way you've tied your arrowsock down is interesting - I'd not seen that done before.
And... ah! California. I thought that landscape looked familiar-yet-odd. Those pinecones are ginourmous!

.. the blade on your quiver strap is interesting. Homemade?

Re: Where has it got its pocketses?

I had never deeply thought about this - wow. A couple thoughts... I rather think the "pockets" of Gollum and the trolls may simply be animal skin bags tied about the waist. 18th c. ladies' pockets are example enough that a "pocket" needn't necessarily be sewn into a garment. I'd ...

knife sheath attatchments - what's your favorite?

I've been needing for ages to sew a sheath for my belt knife, and I'm finally getting to it. Thing is.. I'm at a bit of a loss as to the best way to tackle the project. Originally I was going to do something similar to Urthgard's sheath: http://middleearthrangers.org/forum/download/file.php?id=1476 ...

Re: Caedmon's Antler Handle Fire Steel

Oh... that is fantastic! I can't wait to see it together!

.... and don't feel too bad: I've backburnered mine even longer. Time time time... :/

The pattern you drew: is it going to me "kolrossed" into it? Or carved out in relief like your star? Or something else?

I've been meaning to get a copy, but simply haven't had room in my discretionary budget yet. Sometime I hope. :)

Re: New waterskin- finally!

They do!

The price will be a bit more, but they do make 2L, and they take the same mouthpiece, so we're set there.

The guy I contacted about turning the mouthpiece didn't get it quite right, so I'll see what can be arranged. I might need to find another source.

Nothing ever goes easy. :)

Re: What are the contents of Aragorn's belt pouch?

Elleth: I feel like a magnifying glass could be found in Gondor. They have pretty good tech. Or maybe as an heirloom of Numenor? This is an interesting question. But the answer comes in two parts. First is the actual question of the question - " did glass lenses exist in Middle-earth, and were...
