... do you still keep a couple just-in-case waycakes in your needwallet?

Now that this is updated, I want to update that recipe so it's more appropriate for that purpose, so yes.

A Ranger's Pantry

Ever since I organized my trekking tools into the tool roll I've been carrying a few years now, I knew I wasn't finished. I had taken my "kits" from being a pile of bags with separate uses and made them into a single organized package, easily stowable, but the rest of my pack lacked...cohe...

I like that description, Iodo! Very much has that feel. ‘So-and-so left the inn before most were up, but a farmer in Archet stole this glimpse’ feels right!

Re: Sierra Strider Hard Kit Breakdown

You're looking in the wrong place! http://backwoodstin.com carries a tin-lined (ie. you can stick it in the fire to heat some water and brew a small cup of tea as well as rationing uses) Copper Gil cup for $29.75, or straight tin for $22. Mine is beautiful, and one cup of uncooked oats + 2 [Gil] cup...

Re: MERF Random Adventure Pictures

Juvie RT. She's my second bird for this season, eighth I've had since I became licensed...we got off to a rocky start, with my first bird dying in late September after only three weeks in my care due to congestive heart failure. Since Copper was my 'first' this season and he didn't make it for reaso...

Re: Sierra Strider Hard Kit Breakdown

That's a cool breakdown. HOWEVER! I noticed you only (presently) have food bags weighed, and I'm quite sure they're empty at that weight. A suggestion: I carry a copper 'Gil' cup as both a small drinking cup that I can brew tea in, etc. as well as for a measuring/rationing cup. I use it to measure f...

Re: MERF Random Adventure Pictures

I'll pitch a few in here! Sometimes I forget to post things to the forum that get put upon on the MERS facebook page, but since there's a 'Random Adventure Pictures' thread now, this seems the perfect place! These are outings from the last few months/this winter. https://i.imgur.com/J6svnxz.jpg?1 .....

Re: Hypothermia and how to not die from it

That's a nice guide, Sierra. Thanks for writing this up!

Would you mind if I moved it to 'getting started'? There'd be less of a chance of it getting buried, so it'll stay available to the right people.

Re: All plants, animals, food, etc. mentioned in The Hobbit

Udwin's right: Razanur is Westron for "traveler" or "stranger", and Peregrine is old English for the same. In short, Peregrine is the Professor's 20th century translation for his present-day audience of the original Westron in the Red Book. It has that double-meaning, like he sai...

Re: Two suggestions for subforums

Personas really should be gathered in the cultural/race sub forums (i.e. dwarves, elves, etc).

As for outings, I suppose it couldn't hurt to generalize the Gatherings sub!

Re: Dakota Firehole Experiment Results

Udwin carries a deer scapula (bone) for digging catholes and the like. Couldn't be hard to find one, given how much roadkill I see a week!

Re: Custom sword arrived!

It's beautiful, both of you! Straelbora, it's a perfect size for Ranging and, if I may add, for an innkeeper to keep tucked beneath the bar to ward off unruly guests and ruffians. What a great piece! I hope to get to see it in person in a few weeks! Eric, your work is fantastic. That looks to be the...
