Why so rough?

Hail and well met! At present, I'm recovering from an auto accident that happened this past Monday. A guy pulled across in front of me while Elyon and I were going to work. No serious injuries, but the truck was totaled. I took a trip to the ER and got checked out. Now all of the bruising and sorene...

Re: Morgul Blade.

Late to the party again. I pictured them as more of a Misericorde, the "Mercy knife" used by knights of the 12th to 15th centuries. Their function was to kill fallen men as quickly and (hopefully) painlessly as possible. I suppose that fits in with 'Made for a noble purpose and corrupted ...

Re: About Elvish Culture

Hmm, interesting. I believe there is definite merit for your ideas. I think leaf-bladed double-edged blades and recurved single-edged blades would suit an Elf well. I will study your post better when I get off work today.

About Elvish Culture

Mae Govannen mellon. Once more, I have been absent for an extended period of time. Work, school and other obligations have dominated my time. It's been a while since I've had a good LOTR discussion, so let's start one here! I am currently researching some things about Angarth's early life. Elves pla...

Reading Beowulf

Okay so, school and work are keeping me pretty busy lately. In my Literature class, were reading Beowulf and answering questions as we go along. For those who don't know, late in life Beowulf has to fight a gold-hoarding dragon. The question was, "how did the dragon get the golf?". One of ...

Re: Home made forge question

Getting a permanent set-up in a rental property or a highly populated area can be troublesome. I hope you can both find a solution and be able to forge more often. It's a LOT of fun and a great stress reliever.

Re: Looking for a Middle-earth Appropriate Penannular Brooch

I don't do custom work any more. I know my personality, and it's much more important for me to get something right than to get it finished. And for some weird reason, most people do not appreciate 2+ year turn-arounds. ( Personally I don't get it. :shock: ) That said, this got me thinking. This is ...

Re: Any plans?

Elyon cooked a recipe of pork chops over the fire. We had potatoes roasted in the fire with zucchini and squash. It was one of the best meals we've had all year.

Re: Any plans?

My sons just finished their soccer games, so we're headed out to the Dragons Wood Inn for tonight and tomorrow. We've had some great fall weather (clear, dry, and cool) and will definitely have a fire tonight. Likely go for a hike tomorrow, with at least cloaks if not in more gear. Sounds like a lo...

Re: Any plans?

We have a cold front pushing through that is generating some wind. This could threaten our plans for a fire. I will see how bad the winds are and make a judgement call from there. With everything on the west coast already burning, I certainly don't want to be the one who starts it up in the east. Bu...

Any plans?

Okay, okay. I know many people aren't moving around yet with the Covid-19 thing still going on. But bear with me. I'm dying to hit the woods but that's not a good idea right now. My daughter, Ruinferil, took an Orc blade to the side last Wednesday (Okay, she had her appendix removed), so no camping ...

Re: Rangers report!

It's OK because I still live with my parents so I'm not stuck without money, and both of them have jobs they can do from home, it's just driving me a bit mad because I have to offer constant computer technical support to both of them LOL Sounds like my poor kids. :lol: They are my tech support group.

Re: Rangers report!

It's reached day 15 of the lock-down here in the UK, the factory where I work locked it's doors 10 days ago (the ironic thing is we have enough chemical plant to have started making hand sanitizer but the trade unions forced us to close) and I haven't been allowed further than walking distance from...
