Re: Synopsis for Amazon series revealed.

Given the spotty source material that far back, it would be tricky to do that even with the very best of intentions.

hmm.

Re: What's in a Ranger's quiver?

I think, if the forked head hits anywhere but perfectly square on the target, you’re torquing that shaft pretty hard given the off-centered-ness of the split “points”, for what it’s worth. That makes a *lot* of sense. ... and now I understand why the wire grabby bits on judo points are kinda loose ...

Re: What's in a Ranger's quiver?

I just saw a neat little blurb from Tod on those forked roving heads at the end of this video: AAX8N8Ycs1g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAX8N8Ycs1g At least using them for stump shooting up here, they work *great* for not getting lost in leaf litter - almost as well as modern judo head. They do s...

Re: Sightline of Saurons Eye

Hunh.. curious. Derived from elevation data I assume, with a height estimate based off the film's Barad-Dur?

Cool!

I love that there's both a flat and round version, anachronisms be darned. :mrgreen:

Re: Waxing linen

Your snapsack also seems to be made of a much heavier linen than mine which as of now is quite capable of carrying a lot, but doesn't offer much in the way of protection against the elements. The fabric is Wm. Booth Draper's "Coarse Unbleached Linen, WLG 101" https://wmboothdraper.com/sto...

Re: Waxing linen

I've never experienced anything like that with waxed stuff, but it will be flammable and it won't breathe- so it might get funky inside if you don't keep it cleaned and dried out. Everything's a tradeoff. Personally I'm quite happy with an untreated linen snapsack: unless it's really pouring, it'll ...

Re: Elleth's Pendants for Yule

WOW!

Well that explains it - I couldn't figure out what the heck you did!
They look just like veined stone... but are light as paper!

Re: An overnighter in full kit

That was REALLY COOL - I finally had a chance to sit down ant watch the whole thing start to end. I loved the tune especially, and seeing the "how to" at the end was great. ... did you record the passing stars yourself? I'm curious what kind of camera you used, as the stars seemed visible ...

Re: Kit update

That looks fantastic - I love the forest-colored underlinen!

... if the tunic necks bother you, perhaps you could stitch on a neck placket to fill in the space and close them up a bit?
