Re: Starting to Assemble a Dwarven Toolkit

I love this! Not sure if anyone has brought it up before, but one thing you could consider adding is a stump anvil (like this https://www.oldworldanvils.com/stump-anvil-set) for metal working. Since you drive the spike into a tree before working, it is actually a rather solid work surface. I have o...

Re: Art thread? Might take some fun small requests if people want.

I do think bracers make sense in a "rangery" context - if for no other reason, keeping nasty critters out of one's sleeves. Not so good for ventilation though. It's always something. :) I agree there, that's why I use them most times I go out in kit, just not in the heat, in the winter th...

Re: Art thread? Might take some fun small requests if people want.

I have never seen vanbraces in any historical context, nor in a tolkien one (except Imrahil?). I also think they look too "high fantasy" to be common in Tolkien. They simply feel to Weta(nothing wrong with that but its not what im aiming for) to be in my taste. :P That's fair, everyones i...

Re: Art thread? Might take some fun small requests if people want.

I like the patterns you've chosen to use on the edges of his tunic and jerkin

it's interesting that you don't show him with vambraces when that's in most peoples mental image, is there any specific thought behind this?

How To: Embed images from imgur

After setting up an imgur account and uploading the images to an album, they can be embedded in a thread, here's how: first, you go into the album while logged in, you should get this page: http://i.imgur.com/hnyDmy8.png then you click on the image and you get this page: https://i.imgur.com/4ULaWKI....

Re: Starting to Assemble a Dwarven Toolkit

That book looks good, there seems to be a lot of it on google images, thanks for that There's not so many relics you trip over them, but they're common enough a bit of calling around turns them up fairly easily. Is it the situation the same there? (We lost a lot of our old treasures to WWII metal dr...

Re: Starting to Assemble a Dwarven Toolkit

The idea of a dwarf tool roll is very exciting! While I understand the appeal of being a jack-of-all-trades, I kindof want you to pick one trade just to see how nitty-gritty your toolkit could get. (I agree that toymaker would be fascinating) Even knowing the crafting skill of dwarves, looking at t...

Re: Sleighs and other winter transport? And fur jackets

A kit including this kind of thing would be fascinating to see and I'm going to quote Taurinor when I say "Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, so just because there’s no mention of something doesn’t necessarily mean it isn't there" Just as a note, that is a line of logic meant...
