Re: Treasures in the mountains! Coin-caches.

I suppose it's both a joy to find a treasure again, and a disappointment that someone else hadn't had the delight of discovery! Thank you for going to the trouble! Regarding placement in points east, if you need anything placed in the White Mountains, I'm happy to do it, though it may be some time b...

Re: A strange fabric... Ramie?

Well that's a clever way of turning off-the-rack into decent tromping garb. :)

Re: Some new stuff

Oh!!! Duh, that's the SBG Photo Contest Type XIV, isn't it! Congratulations. Ignore my Eket reference. It's an easy mistake to make: they have very similar profiles, and at first glance look a lot alike in photographs unless you've handled both. http://middleearthrangers.org/forum/download/file.php...

Re: Medieval Faire

Cool!

... and oh shoot - I'd meant to go to that and got so wrapped up in chores I stopped looking at the calendar. Maybe next year.
Looks like fun!

Is it pretty staple Ren Faire acts/merchants/events/etc?
Any fun groups?

Re: Some New(ish) projects

fun! It's my memory metal nibs existed in period as well: they were just much rarer. Ah - https://scribescribbling.wordpress.com/2015/11/21/pens-pre-17th-century/ Simpler than that model, but existing nonetheless. I think a handful of real quills and a little quill knife might "feel" bette...

Re: Ithilien Quiver

Nice!! I'm going to have to try that "bottom strap coming in from the side" arrangement at some point. It seems it solves the problem of your arrows slowly moving down your right shoulder as you walk. ... and I'm still rather surprised WETA came up with the arrow sock thing. It's practical...

Re: What's everyone been up to lately?

Oh it's great to see some old familiar voices! How fun! :)

Greg - what an interesting idea. Is that something they came up with? And it's used for.. flattening out stock?
Like a power hammer?

Re: A strange fabric... Ramie?

Interesting - I wonder how similar eastern nettle fabric is to what was used here? I would imagine at least the plain rustic weaves would be quite alike. Udwin's done a strap or two of nettle as I recall, and I've attempted it. Udwin also made a very good case for it being a good choice for our use ...

Re: Working on a Bree-lander kit

Well that's interesting: I'm curious though - reading the article, I don't see what convinced them this particular object was intended as a fighting weapon, as opposed to some other tool. Not to say it *couldn't* have been - I sure would't want to get thwacked with it.

Re: Type 16 Arrow Heads- Today's MRL DOD

Cool! ... I have a couple of those, gotten from user "EveryDaySavings" on eBay. For those who can't order from MRL today, I think his "Make Offer" price is comparable to the MRL discount price, especially with shipping factored in: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Medieval-Renaissance-Bo...

Re: Those of you using "arrow socks" in your quivers...

Awesome - thank you!

I'm still debating on mine: I 'd thought about doing the bottom with a drawstring similar to the top, but on reflection that may be too bulky down in the foot of the quiver: just sewing it does sound the best decision.

So much to do, so little time. :)

Re: What's everyone been up to lately?

Thank you Udwin! I think you're right: I'd assumed the flowers simply hadn't matured yet, but looking at wiki it appears you're right: they're different - but related- plants. The chamomile smell from bruising the leaves had convinced me, but those pictures match much better. It looks like they've v...

Re: Those of you using "arrow socks" in your quivers...

By the by - Greg, is your arrow sock merely sewn flat across the bottom? Or have a bottom panel stitched in? Or tied/laced like a real medieval arrow bag?
