Re: 2021 Kit and Skills Resolutions

1) I’ve got a new pair of boots that are half-finished that deserve some attention.
2) I’ve got a new yew stave I owe some time to.
3) I’ve got a giant log that’s going to require some time investment.
4) I’ve got two BIG solo treks in the works that I’d like to see through.

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

I'm adopting 'Taurandir' as a given surname. It's a common habit in Midle-earth, it seems...Beleg Strongbow, Turin Turambar, Gandalf Greyhame, etc. I'm having a darned difficult time settling on a first name I can stomach. Tirathon is a good approximation of the meaning of 'Gregory', so that fits w...

Re: Fire kit for my D&D crew

If I'd been given something like that in an early D&D session decades ago, I would've been into this hobby MUCH sooner! Good on you!

Re: What's in a Ranger's quiver?

I think, if the forked head hits anywhere but perfectly square on the target, you’re torquing that shaft pretty hard given the off-centered-ness of the split “points”, for what it’s worth.

So, I got a log...

This is easily the biggest Christmas present I've ever received! All kidding aside, it wasn't a gift, so much as just something I've been searching for for every bit of the last year or so...a (near) perfectly straight log, of a specific species, of a minimum diameter. I got the best of all three. M...

Re: Dunedain vs Ranger

I based my persona as a ranger that guards the inlet to the Baranduin river so the Corsairs of Umbar cant sail up it and attack the Shire. I did it mostly because i live in the south part of my country with only a mile to the sea and i love sailing. Though we don't have any direct references to thi...

Re: Dunedain vs Ranger

I can definitely get behind the idea of a semi-nomadic people. The only thing that doesn't line up from my description that comes to mind is gardens...if virtually all plant-based food was gathered rather than cultivated, consistent sources like dairy goats and chickens are still viable means for cr...

Re: Grey wool cloak

That looks very nice! Fits in well with the descriptions we have. Little hard to tell from these angles, but it looks like the length is short enough to be utilitarian around the homestead as much as out in the bush...cool! The neckline looks like it has a leather 'drawstring' of a sort running thro...

Re: Dunedain vs Ranger

You ask excellent questions, which to pursue a Dunedain impression must be answered in some small way, but we have very little to go on to really know the truth. Our best information on the subject to date, I believe, comes from two sources: The Council of Elrond , and The Passing of the Grey Compan...
