Re: More on Amazon's LOTHR Series

I confess that's the first thing I've heard that doesn't bode utter catastrophe... especially if they can get Lee and Howe back onboard and reverse away from the "World of Warcraft" direction their designers started veering off into in the later Hobbit designs. While I'm not at all optimis...

Re: Food For Discussion: What Would We Look Like?

That said, I think "stranger MERFers dropping into a medieval village" isn't quite a perfect analogue, since the Dunedain are *known* to the Breefolk. Not trusted certainly - but they've presumably been passing through the the Breelands since time out of memory and presumably haven't kille...

Re: Food For Discussion: What Would We Look Like?

Interesting question! Generally when thinking about this kind of thing, I try to imagine what it would be like in a more familiar context? Let's say we're sitting in a modern American burger joint - but to make it fair, let's say we're pretty far out, since population density changes a *lot* in huma...

Another set of late medieval boots discovered...

... with their poor wearer! https://molaheadland.com/the-medieval-mystery-of-the-booted-man-in-the-mud/ Our finds specialists studying the boots believe they date to the late 15th or early 16th century. Leather was expensive and often re-used at this time and experts believe it is unlikely that some...

Re: Doings in Randiromar

Yes! I know that general pattern has come up numerous times over the last several years in the "soft kit" forum. Caedmon had some good observations on tailoring and piecing them, as I recall. Also, I've a vague memory of a youTube video that goes into the subtleties of the design - ah! her...

Re: Winter 2018-19 Newsletter

Well that was awesome. Best yet in quite a while I think! Every single article was fantastic. The "first lesson" was so sweet! I loved the bracelet for Momma so much. :) .... and I see that pick is in Odigan's etsy store. I hope one of our resident dwarves snags it. I just might have to fi...

Re: Doings in Randiromar

Cool! I can't wait to see what you come up with! I've been meaning to remake my own cloak along Greg's pattern at some point: just so much to do! For the time being my own suits quite well enough. Replacing your harp strings with bronze sounds interesting - your existing harp will handle them? Neat!...

Re: Calling all Tolkien language geeks: "Bree" in the original Westron

Hunh. Just had a thought. The "goil" of "Forgoil" is similar to the plural form we see in Sindarin: Duneadan (man of the West) / Dunedain (men of the West). ... which MIGHT indicate that Dunlendish "head" singular would be "gol." ... unless the Dunlenders foll...

Calling all Tolkien language geeks: "Bree" in the original Westron

So... I'm pondering what word our beloved characters were *actually* saying when that said the town name of "Bree." (I'm working on an in-universe project where I'd like to reference the town in Westron, and I'd prefer to use something at least hypothetically correct - even if we can never...
