Re: MERF Random Adventure Pictures

Thanks! These were taken at lake Fulmor in Idyllwild, about 45 minutes up the mountain from Riverside. I KNEW IT! I had Idyllwild in my head the whole time I was flipping through them!

Re: Show Me Your Hot Kits

My apprentice and I posing in front of our booth a few weeks ago. My shirt, jerkin, pants, and cloak are all linen, so it breathes really well and keeps me pretty comfortable in the southern California summer.
