I'm working on a kit for my wife, and am admittedly (and unashamedly) looking for a shortcut. I need a smock/chemise/whatever in linen with a non-gathered neckline. Preferably a natural linen, not bleached. Don't really care if it's scooped or a keyhole, and I don't care if it's tastefully machine-s...

Still, I've got a full tinderbox and a snapsack with all my hard kit for a standard trek in it, so this is ...
I intended to take care of this today, but I may need an extension through tomorrow. I cut my finger (punctured, really...six holes in a line) with an arborist handsaw (a razor, really) right where my bowstring rests, and if I shoot it will likely jumpstart some profuse bleeding.

On horse or on foot once mobility is lost and range is closed against dedicated infantry, archers are practically speaking, doomed. Much like the one significant weakness inherent in the Spear, actually. Once the effective range and standoffish characteristics have been passed and the spearman forc...
Greetings! All have returned safe and sound to their respective dwellings, so in this ever-warming Spring that's begun, we'll take some time to look back. "A local Cultural Beorning Woodman, a travelling Cartographer, and a northern Ranger on extended patrol into Wilderland with his sheepdog ha...
As for "not catching the bowstring on the sword pommel"...this is a basic skill we oughta have figured out, so I don't see it as a question of "Should we do this", but rather "We'd darned well better be able to do this."
