Gullibardi walking stick.

Post by Eofor »

A fine piece came to light this week, a gift to Eofor of the Black Tusk for certain services rendered. A stout walking stick similar to the fokos or walking axes used by the Hithaeglir mountain shepherds.
I have not had much time amongst the people of the Genipbeorg but recognise Beorning work when I see it.

It is finely decorated with runes and the timber stave is as hard as steel. A perfect companion and stout defence for any traveller.

A new treasure - Head, end cap and ferrule by Gulli, mounting by myself. Head is cast bronze with engraved details mounted to a haft of spotted gum. The runes read 'The road goes ever on and on'.
For seven days without eating or sleeping the new king sat, until he stood and cried "This cannot be borne!"!

Man, Gulli has that Beorning vibe down pat. It looks fantastic! Well done.

I said if he could fit some runes on it I would buy it. He suggested a cap which could fit the runes and three days later sent me this. He's a wizard!

Amazing, I love it :P
Gimli: It's true you don't see many Dwarf-women. And in fact, they are so alike in voice and appearance, that they are often mistaken for Dwarf-men.
Aragorn: It's the beards.
