Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

Good challenge! I loved this one. Took me quite a few times. https://youtu.be/QxqWyStrDnE Glad you enjoyed it. I thought it might prove a fun break from the sequential cutting we normally do. After all a Ranger may not always have the benefit of dynamic movement. Regardless of blade preference you ...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

A study in simple mechanics for my challenge. The big learning tool with bottle cutting is primarily about edge alignment IMO. The rule is simple. A straight drawing slice and the bottle must be completely severed in two. No rearing back just pull the sword through the target. Forgive the kilt, we’r...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

Lovely work. Your cutting is always so smooth. Morbid curiosity warrants that I ask, how many Albion’s do you own?

Re: The Picnic Roll – middle earth carry in less than 10 minutes

Great idea! It would be very much part of the Dwarven "mindset" or conditioning, to care for important items taken on the road in this way. This would be what could have been used to achieve the desired results until one could fashion or procure something more permanent...like a portmante...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

True. I guess I was more worried about duplicating the exact mechanics and not focusing on the fine print "thrust through center bottle without it coming off your blade"

Re: Rainy day ranging

Mine are the "Medieval Boot" as I like the low heel they have. The biggest struggle I'm having is designing an upper that will bring them up to knee height and keep them "well fitted" as per the book. I really want to avoid any lacing system on these, maybe a couple of well place...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

Looks like a fun one! I'll probably have to go for one of my arming swords or my XVIIIa on this one, there's no way a thrust from Cadeyrn wont cut the bottle in half in the process. No if this blasted rain would let up... Just for kicks I also want to go ahead and pick up Odigans last challenge even...

Re: Rainy day ranging

What boots are you using Ursus? Are they waterproof? These are nought but an extremely old pair of some unknown maker of renfair-ish boot. A friend gave them to me years ago, probably more like a decade. Being a size 14 in footware all that I cared about at the time was they fit and they were leath...

Re: wool vs heavy linen for trousers?

Im more of a wool guy than linen. I do have a pair of generic homemade pants from heavy linen that I wear more in the hot months. My woolen ones are nothing more that a gutted pair of vintage military field pants that got a lengthy walnut dye bath and a drawstring installed after removing the zipper...

These cloaks are handy...

After all what’s the point of having all this fine foul weather gear if not to use and abuse the heck out of it! Got caught in a sudden snow shower on my ranging today so my new big travel cloak got repurposed into a quick makeshift shelter. Now it’s time to settle in for a pipe and a bit of jerk an...
