Re: Custom sword arrived!

It's beautiful, both of you! Straelbora, it's a perfect size for Ranging and, if I may add, for an innkeeper to keep tucked beneath the bar to ward off unruly guests and ruffians. What a great piece! I hope to get to see it in person in a few weeks! Eric, your work is fantastic. That looks to be the...

Re: Winter in Wilderland

You need to find some Orcs for the next one. There were two pairs of orcs on patrol that we narrowly avoided contact with, carrying torches along the nearby road. They were strangely arrayed in bright primary colors with torches that shone in rather specific directions rather than all around, and c...

Re: Winter in Wilderland

Was the hut something that was constructed on another outing? Did you keep a fire going in the hut most of the night? That windchill was serious business! We've constructed various shelters on previous trips, but this one we actually FOUND on our last group trek, along the way. It was completed but...

Usually not. In this case, it was almost pitch black at that time, so the idea of splitting kindling in the dark didn't appeal, and we lit a candle.

Winter in Wilderland

In traditional historical Reenactment, many events (at least, the ones you hear about!) have a central theme of either a time, place, or specific event such as a famous battle. As a part of a new effort to create more high-authenticity events within the Middle-earth Reenactment Society, we are proud...

Re: Christopher.

He was definitely a literary giant, on par with his father (though he'll never get THAT kind of credit.). As far as this community's pursuits are concerned, some of the very best Ranger kit-related references we have exist only in books that never would have seen the light of day if not for him. So ...

Re: Samson Historical Forged Folding Skillet

Ursus packs something similar to this, and fried up some bannock on our last trip. Looks very useful, and seems reasonably close to Samwise's "Shallow pans"!

2020 - Skill/Goal Recap and Looking Ahead
