Re: Historical wool cleanliness

Maybe part the historical solution for undyed trade blankets and the like is just 'be careful and don't get that sort of thing on them in the first place,' idk. I think it's pretty much this. I don't find I get very dirty at all, I completed a 24km hike recently in a very expensive piece of histori...

Bwahahahaha shall we make it sword 2022? Seeing as you have gone this deep into the year perhaps the sword game takes a break next year and in exchange all participants share a single watermelon thrashing?

I'm with Iodo, I don't participate but I do enjoy watching the moves.

I did contemplate crashing your party with a warhammer and a watermelon this year though!

Re: Amazon's Wheel of Time Series

I don't know about 'wokeness.' While I haven't watched the series (and don't plant to) with the exception of Moiraine Damodred I thought the books were absolutely awful in the way they depicted female characters. Rand was poorly written too for the large part. Honestly it was difficult to believe i...

Re: Why so rough?

I swear the roads grow less and less safe every day, am really glad both of you are okay. I have often wondered the same, although almost all of the weapons in the LOTR movies are relatively plain and understated. With regards to the Dwarven weapons I wonder if it's not in part due to racism... no w...

Re: Cooking pots..... Whats yours?

- I should have just asked for the pattern to be engraved into the iron (if at all) rather than having an attached band. The different heat expansion is a pain. - I was too clever for my own good with that "lid as a skillet" thing. Greg's absolutely right, frying in the bottom of the pan ...

Most of the things that come out of my head are drivel, but every once in a while I get something thats not to embarrassing to show people I'm much the same, it can be daunting I imagine being new here to put a creative work up.

Re: On the subject of blankets and shelters

Oooh.. I've played with some handwovenwool stuff: I think you'll be quite happy. (The heavier blanket wool was kinda scratchy but very dense) It's place in the bedding will be the outer layer so it shouldn't be to much of an issue I hope. Hunh.
