Re: A proper Dúnedain waterskin..

I'd lean towards silicone for what you're doing. Brewer's pitch is a mess to deal with.

Re: D&D item weights are amusing.

I concur. Ten pounds of rope @ 50' long would likely be a heavy (2" thick or more!) mooring line from a shipyard...and the bulk alone of carrying such a hank would fill one's pack!

Re: New Member: Custom Ranger Sword

Looks like it'll become a wonderful piece, and you've done some great work already! I myself carry a shortened Hanwei-Tinker bare blade made from a Fullered Bastard, and it turned out wonderfully. The biggest thing I would focus on for yours would be trying to round off the angles at the point where...

Re: A proper Dúnedain waterskin..

I keep water in mine, and hang it in my room where I see it often. As I pass by, I randomly squeeze/slosh it around to keep higher parts of the interior from drying out. When I'm getting ready to go somewhere with it, I dump the water and fill it with fresh. The strap width hasn't actually bothered ...

Re: Were the Fellowship’s Brooches Unique?

‘Garb of our own people’ sounds like it was stuff they already had on hand. Why, after all, would a brooch of their beloved Mallorn trees be unique to the strangers? I mean...thousands of years of living in them, and they just now had the idea to make these pins? It does seem like the cloaks might h...

Re: Autumn 2021 Available Now!

You may notice that all the photos with the fireplace in them are from generally the same direction. If I took them the other way, you’d be treated with a lovely view of some graffiti. There’s more that I cover by hanging my cloak by the fire. Photo magic!

A short leather belt...about 14” long.

Re: Autumn 2021 Available Now!

Oh, I wish! It's a 3-walled stone Picnic Shelter at a local park. Fireplaces are common in the state parks and the like around here, though quite a few in the bigger parks have begun being boarded up. This one's off the beaten path and has been on my radar for a few years. It's on both the cover and...

Re: A Ranger's Bedroll

That reminds me... Greg, I tried a horseshoe roll a while back, and finally got it to kinda work: the difference being that I was playing with a 19th-c haversack and canteen instead of medievallish stuff - so hence no quiver. What order do you put things on: horseshoe then quiver, or vice versa? If...

Re: A Ranger's Bedroll

Several options on that topic! I think the general populous definitely carries it horizontally across the back, unless it's strapped to the top of a backpack. You can certainly run a strap/tumpline through it; I've done that comfortably many times! I'm more partial to the horseshoe roll, though, whi...
