Re: Hanwei practical viking sword customisation

Very nicely done!

Might I ask what method you used to add those accent lines to the belt material? What's the wood the bridge was carved from?

Re: Northman subforum?

You can post kit stuff in there if you'd like, but they're all named "Culture" for a reason! I'd say we use them for culture-specific discussion, and then when you make a new piece of kit, you throw it in the hard kit, soft kit, or weapons and armor section. We aren't kicking non-Rangers o...

Re: The Garments of the Lake-men.

I particularly like the diversity but consistency of their clothing. There's definitely a cultural 'style' present, as though there are fashion trends to a degree, but everybody's still got their own thing going on.

Re: Northman subforum?

we could divide up the "Other Free Folk" sub to accommodate where we are at present, by splitting it into three primary races: Elves, Free Men, and Dwarves. How do we feel about that? I think we would need an other category as well Five minutes after writing it, I was like "D'oh...Ho...

Re: Northman subforum?

My thoughts on the matter run similarly as they did when we instituted the Other free folk sub forum...the forum exists with Rangers as its starting point but should cater welcomingly to other races/cultures. At that time, the need for other free folk was less focused than it has become now. That be...

Planning to dip some new candles for a new lante...

Re: Dwarven Baldric and Belt

I'm particularly fond of the belt...it's right on the money for a dwarf. The buckle has a similar feel to the West Door of Moria.

If you insist! What's your take on the "...pinned at the shoulder with a silver brooch shaped like a rayed star" reference of the Grey Company?

I I need to get me a good boiling oil setup. Last time, the door-to-door solicitors breached the enceinte before I was able to drive them off, and recently I've spotted them constructing siege engines just out of bow range.

Happy birthday!

Re: Looking to have my Kit Critiqued

You're off to a fantastic start! There are some elements that read as Anglo-Saxon, which I really like and align with the professor's leanings towards that period. Your short cloak and its versatility is absolutely fascinating, and is just the sort of thing I'd expect to see, particularly belted, wo...
