Re: A Ranger's Pantry

What a fantastic set up! I love that it’s a self contained kit. You’ve definitely given me a lot to consider. Though I still can’t believe that this would last you a week! Do you think you can give a rough estimation of the percentage that these rations vs. your separate ready-to-rations make up of ...

Re: In Search of Pre-Made Body Linens

I know you’ve already decided on a place Greg but I just thought I’d throw Revival Clothing on the list. https://revivalclothing.com/product/womens-chemise/ They have all kinds of reproduction clothing and the prices are in Canadian Dollars. So you Southerners can knock off about 30% (just an estima...

I dont have a sleigh like this, as this one is a fantasy creation. I love the detail you have put into the sleigh Darnokthemage! Espec...

Re: Orc Armour?

I went through this process a couple years ago: I can't recall what the source material I found was, but my conclusion was that mostly generic points with a few bodkins was the sensible route: http://middleearthrangers.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=3187&start=15#p40361 Since that post I st...

Re: Medieval Arrowheads and their Uses - Tod's Stuff

I saw that! The trick with the quills was cool! I've been meaning to experiment with an arrow spoon for ages - but how cool there's an improvised solution for those nasty barbs! .... I do hope he remembers the original source he got that from at some point. :) I love "his" solution, becau...

Orc Armour?

So I've been doing a lot of research for the last little while on arrowheads and their uses, trying to come up with a useful mix of heads to put on some proper period arrows. I'm planning on having a good mix of broadheads, bodkins (armour piercing), and some specialty heads. Also carrying extras th...

Medieval Arrowheads and their Uses - Tod's Stuff

Here's a fantastic video from Tod of Tod's Stuff in the UK discussing various medieval arrowheads, what they were made of, how they were strengthened, and their various uses. It certainly gave me a lot to think about in terms of war point types and what a ranger should carry. It's a great watch! htt...

Re: 3rd Age Dunedain Ranger - Complete Functional Kit Breakdown

Depends on what your firewood needs are. Are you trying to sustain a cookfire, or are you trying to heat your shelter? Are you heating a lean-to for the night, or are you stocking wood for the winter? At my persona's homestead, there indeed would/will be/already is a full-hafted axe. Would I carry ...

Re: Water Treatment on the Trail

Great write up, especially your comparison! You reminded me that this is one piece of kit I sorely need. During our ranging trips we usually travel as a group of 10 or up. We usually travel with 3 or 4 pump purifiers which belong to individual members of our Company. We also have 1 or 2 large hangin...

Wow! Great find, definitely need to check out his channel. I loved hearing such familiar names and titles, shows how grounded in history Middle Earth really is (in certain ways).

Re: 3rd Age Dunedain Ranger - Complete Functional Kit Breakdown

Wow! Such an amazing and complete kit! Congratulations! I hope my kit will be as well thought out and cohesive as yours one day! I loved seeing your historical and Tolkien influences for each item. But what are your thoughts on not carrying an axe and instead just carrying your seax? Do you find tha...
