Re: Dúnedain Waxed Leather Water Bottle

and when people are often alone for long stretches of time with nothing but their kit for company, it's not at all uncommon for them to wile away what hours they have as downtime by adding some small decoration to it (sailors in particular come to mind). But this is probably beating a dead horse a ...

Re: Let's Talk about Legs!

I was dry until I took my cloak off to climb a fence and put it back on inside out :( it was only two hours back to the car so no harm done... Next time try pulling the whole thing up across your chest and tossing it over your shoulder. Nixes the need to take it off, but gets it up high and clear o...

Re: The Elves! The elves! What are we going to do with the Elves!

Spiders seem to be most often depicted as creatures of evil by Tolkien so my first thought about the possibility of harvesting spider silk to make fabric was maybe something goblins would do? But considering what I've just read: Spider silk is very elastic, and it has a tensile strength that is incr...

Re: Dúnedain Waxed Leather Water Bottle

This is absolutely amazing, I love that leather tooling design :P and an extra small one for "something stronger" is such a good idea :mrgreen:

Re: Let's Talk about Legs!

So obviously it's not ideal - but then, adventuring rarely is. So true :mrgreen: last time I spent a day out in kit (two weeks ago) It was raining really hard, I was dry until I took my cloak off to climb a fence and put it back on inside out :( it was only two hours back to the car so no harm done...

Re: A Dúnedain Ranger's belt pouch

- One, I suspect a large part of what I love about the color and texture is a result of the traditional tanning and dying methods. I definitely couldn't achieve the same look with most modern dyes or tans. It really has a beautifully rustic look that just FEELS *RIGHT*, somehow. Agreed, it's an ama...

Re: Monthly Ranger Training Logs, 2019

It's just the aversion to running that prevents me from accepting, I'm very fast over short distances :mrgreen:

seriously though, I admire anyone who is even thinking about attempting this :P

Re: The Elves! The elves! What are we going to do with the Elves!

The thing I have trouble with is imagining what the leaves would be made of, actual leaves wouldn't make a lot of sense, scale armor is kind of similar but is heavy and noisy so not the best, if it were felted wool it wouldn't be an advantage over an ordinary wool tunic, it could possibly be made fr...

Re: The Elves! The elves! What are we going to do with the Elves!

Nice work :P that's a very interesting interpretation I'm not a fan of the leaf tunic idea, I always imagined elven clothing to be very simple in design but to appear to have flowing curves and lines that emulate nature without actually trying to copy it, I'm probably making no sense, it's very hard...

Re: Moot at Färnelond

Oh, man, I've been in the process of designing a walking staff and yours is very near what i'm looking for--not so ornate that it's distracting or diminishes functionality, but decidedly more than a mere stick. Gorgeous. I might well be consulting these pictures for some design elements. Is that a ...
