Re: Mittens

Hey Andy!

Are you looking for a historical source and reference for mittens, a pattern to make your own, or a trusted crafter to purchase from?

Re: The Sword Beneath the Cloak (Odigan work)

So I'm just now getting around to actually commenting on this but wow, Elleth, your sword is incredible. It's a real beauty and frankly, a real inspiration for me. The line "This feels like a brawler's weapon - not something intended for deeds of song on a bright sunlit battle plain, but rather...

Re: Participating in Middle Earth and Where We Fit

It's a pretty good outline and like Yavion, I am highly amused that the SCA is (rightfully in my opinion) assessed as a "Soft Larp." Unfortunately (?), I decided early on that Hard Reenactment is the only way for me and as a result, the process is slow. But I'm still working away at it bec...

Re: Dry goods and other musings

14 days is.... a lot. For my part I haven't done anything near those numbers, I tend to try towards air cured sausages as the fat content is much higher than in other forms of dried meat and while I haven't pushed them to 14 days I suspect that they would fare well enough in the right climate. That...

Re: Hoard Key

Beautiful work Gulli!

Eofor, I know you have quite some skill at woodworking. Do you intend to build the actual chest to make the key functional?

Re: Tomas Hijo art

Dang, and here I just bought a themed tarot deck. Looks like I might have to pick up another even though, as you say, I'm not much a believer in that sort of thing.

What beautiful art! Thank you for posting this!

Re: Playing cards

I was also curious after you posted this and with a little Googling, found this excellent answer to a very similar question. Most surprising to me is the reference to chess and a chessboard. https://scifi.stackexchange.com/questions/94489/is-there-reference-to-sport-in-middle-earth Yes, there are re...

Re: Dúnedain Settlements OUTSIDE the Angle?

About 1600 years before most of our personas, but there is precedent for Dúnedain hiding and living in the Old Forest outside of Buckland at least for a short time. A great host came out of Angmar in 1409, and crossing the river entered Cardolan and surrounded Weathertop. The Dúnedain were defeated ...

Re: Leather Boots from Armstreet

Looks great! They certainly match the description of Aragorn at the Prancing Pony. Save for one thing...
high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud.
Now to get out there and use them!

Re: Rangers of Ithilien posting

Personally, I would put it in Dúnedain Culture. I believe we already have a couple topics on that culture there anyway. Now if it was Gondorian culture at large, maybe in Other Human but it’s a case by case basis since a large section of the Gondorian populace is Dúnedain.
