That's an nice way to put it, and you are right too :P I learnt the runic script I used it that letter at such an early age (before I knew of such things) that I just think of it as a...

Re: An unexpected letter

Yes - more on bindrunes: Thanks for the link Elleth, that answers my questions, and it's interesting that the stuff me and my brother invented as children was under exactly the same principle, we joined runes together because carving into rock is time consuming and using runes joined together meant...

Re: Dúnedain tunic, v 1.0

Now I'm curious where it's coming from - if one took the strictest reading of the silk kerchiefs exchange (Bilbo's were linen, Elrond's were silk) - then coming down the Great East Road from points east after the Battle of Five Armies, reclamation of Dale, etc opened trade over the Misty Mountains ...

Re: Anyone making anything fun lately?

I just finished up my version 1 cloak and hood - slightly modified bocksten cloak and slightly modified skjoldehamn hood. It runs about knee length ( I was intending to make it mid calf, but oh well) and seems to work pretty well as far as rain and cold weather go. I'm thinking about adding some ti...

Re: An unexpected letter

I was taught* to always put dots before and after words or single runes (To 'Seal' them) and to be very careful when designing bind runes so as not to accidentally enscribe additional runes. *By a Runemaster and follower of the Northern Druidic path (his words not mine) cool, so maybe there was log...

Re: An unexpected letter

neat story :P I hope things aren't really that bad down under? you've probably noticed there are a few small ways that my runes differ from yours, it took me a while to decide if I should write the same as you do or not, but eventually I decided to write the same way that I have always written becau...

Re: Video/Youtube Bushcraft Resources

mostly a good video, thx for the link :P

..but striking flint with the spine of such a nice knife!? I actually wondered if he knew that the sparks were bits of knife and not bits of flint, but then he said he did so he must just have too many nice knives :lol:

Re: A new compass for my kit

Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant! That little pouch is a fantastic contrivance, and now I absolutely HAVE TO try one of those myself! I haven’t been carrying a compass on outings, personally, but around here we also haven’t really deviated much, if at all, from established trails, since that tends t...
