Re: A simple need wallet

Cool! Those buckles were perfect! Good call leaving the straps long, I think. :) Oh - my original design was perhaps a bit over-engineered to keep as much water as much as possible. Since I'm sure you get out more than I do, I'd be curious to hear how well the stuff inside yours stays dry, so that I...

Re: Custom sword arrived!

Oh very cool! The sentimental apple wood is so sweet - what a wonderful heirloom. Your children someday telling their children where the wood came from is just a terribly sweet thought. :mrgreen: And what Greg said about a perfect surprise under the bar if that ol' Bill Ferny and his crew shows thei...

Re: In memory?

Regarding recipient: I think I personally would prefer one with a more direct connection to Christopher Tolkien's family, even if that means less chance of public display.
I'm happy to bow to the community consensus there, of course.

Re: In memory?

What's the timeline?
Are you coordinating / can we send pieces to you?

I can send pennies this weekend, but if we have a few weeks breathing room I'll get a little scrap of illumination done as well.

Christopher.

Now I know how it felt to watch the elves sail from Middle-earth for the last time.

The last living link, gone. :(

Re: Numenorean design motifs

Well this is cool - looking through Cedarlore's back catalog, I saw a reference to this thing he made some time back using some of the Professor's doodle-patterns: cedarlore-tolkien-floral-pattern-knife.jpg https://www.instagram.com/p/BNKt2vIFq-Q/ I have loved that flower-in-a-wedge pattern of his f...

Oh those are some good woods to play in! Washington State, you say?

I've always adored the mountain skyline in the wooded foothills outside of Seattle - is that about where you are?

Re: Twelve Silver Pennies: coins of the Breelands

Given that coinage in our world has always been quite closely tied to sovereignty, I still think it quite likely the pennies themselves were minted in the Breelands. Certainly Barliman's concern at the end of RotK concerning waves of newcomers absolutely indicates the Breelanders thought of themselv...

Re: My kit as of now

I am curious though how you ended up attaching your snapsack to the bedroll or vice a versa. So I promised an answer to this. What I *HAD* been doing was wrapping the blanket around the shoulder strap, giving it a quick tie to stay in place, then buckling on the goatskin cover. The bag is tied sepa...
