Re: Hats

Here is a picture from Osprey's "English Longbowman 1330-1515" of some generic hats from that period an archer might have worn. A lot of them look like variations on the "Robin Hood" style hat, but there is some variety, including ones that look like bags. It's also interesting t...

Re: Swords and Daggers

Hey what about this sword?? http://www.trueswords.com/royal-knight-sword-custom-scabbard-blade-p-2481.html It looks like a nice costume blade, and the price is certainly right for that application. It's stainless steel, though, so you aren't going to be able to do any cutting with it. Depending on ...

Re: ranger horses

Mike Lodes spends about five minutes on the medieval traveling horse in his show "Going Medieval". The horses have a special gait the "amble", a very quick pace with little of the bouncing you'd get from a normal gaited horse. If you get a chance to see this show do so, well wor...

Re: Boots Boots and more Boots

Those boots look great! Just be careful with the natural soles, they can get a little slippy! I have a pair of these boots and they wear quite well : http://www.darkknightarmoury.com/p-3158-knee-length-medieval-shoes.aspx (an fyi, I got those 3 years ago for 110.00, prices are going up!)

Re: Ultimate Ranger Cloak

I think your cloak looks great, Sam, as does everyone else's! To me it's whatever keeps the rain off and keeps you warm. Are you going to line your hood? Taurynor, I'd love to see more pics of yours. I want to do a detached hood and cloak sometime. My own is probably a little smaller than I would l...

Re: Ultimate Ranger Cloak

Well I looked at some different cloak designs all over the internet and none of them were what i wanted, complete coverage. I had a simple rectangle cloak I made but thats all it was a rectangle, nothing went around the front and covered you. This cloak is three seperate pieces that fit around your...

Re: Dunedain Lembas Bread Experiment

I agree that it's a little more rustic looking than Elven bread would probably be. I think for my next try I'll substitute more ground flax for the oats. They contain similar amounts of carbs, but the ground flax is actually more calorically dense due to a higher fat content. They probably won't kee...

Re: Dunedain Lembas Bread Experiment

I thought it would be fun to give this a try. Here's what I came up with: 1 1/2 cup white bread flour 1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (high protein) 1 1/2 cup honey 2 tbsp ground flax 1 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup dried apples, diced 1/2 cup walnuts, diced I downsized this recipe and just made one piece to ...

Lurking no longer!

I've been following the discussions on these boards for quite a while, but I finally decided to make an account, ask questions, and try to contribute if I can. I currently live smack in the middle of a city, so I'm not able to get out into the woods much, but my fiance and I are making an effort to ...
