Re: Moot at Färnelond

It is poplar, so not the hardiest of woods. I have coated it and added a large steel reinforced rubber ferrule to the bottom of it. I would take it out in the Winter. I will this year. It will probably be battered some, like most of my things. In the end though, it is meant to be used, so used it wi...

Re: Moot at Färnelond

Sierra Strider; that "little guy" is a representation of Skadi, on skis, hunting reindeer. There are also snowflakes, clouds, fir trees, runes, etc. :)

Hope that helps.

Moot at Färnelond

From yesterday's Moot at Fänelond. I did play Signy (my lyre), and I suspect Ranger Helwen will post some photos at some point. These photos are from outside the library there. There's a good wood stove inside, seating, books, bits of armor, loads of candle lamps. Still under construction. Well on t...

Re: Forandiri proto-Moot

We held our Moot this past weekend. There were six of us. Mostly we were looking ahead to a much larger venue next year. There was some archery, although I didn't shoot beyond a couple of whistler shots, due to a pulled muscle in the back. We used our 14'6" round pavilion, although by the big o...

Re: Let's Talk about Legs!

The Romans had socks. We even have remnants of letters where a son stationed at Vindolanda wrote his mother to send him more socks. They also had wool wraps and hosen. I don't really think there's any reason to find a justification. Middle Earth is not a parallel for our real world, really. He drew ...

Forandiri proto-Moot

Wish us luck, friends. Across the Equinox weekend in September the Forandiri will have their first ever Moot. A small event it will be; space is limited and our Ranger Sister has graciously allowed to use her property for the purpose. We are not unwelcoming, however given the small size of this one,...

Re: The Forandiri at Faire

I shall endeavor to do so. The staff is very nicely done. A simple motif, with long fir trees, Skadi herself on skis, a reindeer, snowflakes, runes etc. I was told every Völva needs her staff, so it was made for me and sent along. I am not arguing.

Re: The Forandiri at Faire

Thanks guys. :) The staff was made for me. It is called a 'völva' staff. I added the feathers and beads, which are replicas of beads found at Birka. I don't plan on adding much, if anything, else. The staff is a work of art on its own. It has a figure of Skadi and a reindeer....hunting indeed. I did...

Re: Riverine Ranger

I was out patrolling a lake not far off. I attempted to record the event, yet for some reason it did not work. (I forgot to turn the camera on before hitting record). ;)

We'll be going out again, in appropriate kit, very soon. There will be some video, some photos.

The Forandiri at Faire

This past week end, some of the Forandiri decided to go to Faire. It is an annual event that takes place about six miles or so North of us along the Anduin. Two days only, although in such a region that is not surprising. It is still wild in places here in the North. Myself, my son Taliesin, and my ...

Brookside Music...Roadside Rest

Went for a bit of a saunter about the Wilds today. I took my lyre along with me. Inexperienced at these kinds of things, so much to learn. Even so, learned a great deal, and more importantly, had a lot of fun. The brook is very loud and rather rambunctious, what with melt and rain. The camera was fu...

Re: A Ranger and her lyre...dressed funny. ;)

Thank you, Ruinar. :) I have a further piece...fragments of pieces I am working on, really. Finger exercises as well. Assuming I can get the video to post. Alas, I am still in the wrong clothing and environment. I shall try to ensure I have at least some proper garments on in future, and perhaps get...

Re: A Ranger and her lyre...dressed funny. ;)

No, I wasn't even aware Wardruna and related used them. I like the look of it, I already like lyres, so I have one. :)
