Re: A good and proper hovel

I had known how these were constructed but seeing one being built is an entirely different thing. I wouldn't have thought of converting a sheath knife into a draw knife. Very simple yet out of the box for me. Thanks for posting it was very informative.

Re: bristol sword help/advice

As long as the peen is intact, there should be no issue. The tangs are softer toward the peen to allow the peen to take. Unless it wiggles or it looks like the pommel looks like it's moving, you're good to go. That difference you noticed most likely happened when they were setting the peen. A slight...

Re: Detachable Spear Heads - Feasible?

There are historic examples of this type of attachment. I'll see if I can find it. I believe it's in my copy of Stone's Glossary. Iodo: You'd have to ground down the outside a bit for say a Windlass spearhead before cutting the slits out. As far as adding the ring, real easy. Heat the socket wings/n...

Re: Starting to Assemble a Dwarven Toolkit

Now I have to learn to splice rope, you guys are killing me ! :P It's ok my friend it is not something difficult to learn at all though there are as many ways to spice as there are to tie knots and as with knots, each is designed for a different purpose. Get thee to a West Marine (You can get fids,...

Re: Persona Concept: Cimrandir...Dunedain Archaelogist?

I like the outline so far. If you were to story write, I'd suggest hiring dwarf diggers for a found site. At least have some smaller tools for gem/wood and stone work. See Iodo's tinker's tool set up for some inspiration: http://www.middleearthrangers.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=4298 Keep us ...

Somebody pick this up. Like Elleth, I have more than enough swords.

Re: War Mattocks

I haven't seen a reference for this however, it makes sense that the mattocks wielded by the archers were smaller versions of the farm implements not a weaponized version. Archers would have used mattocks to anchor their pavis. These shields would cover the entire body and a bow is a two handed weap...

Re: Starting to Assemble a Dwarven Toolkit

Peter on pack saddle, if planning on using pack saddles over any amount of time and with heavy packs, a well fitting pack saddle is great! Great pack saddles have to be able to form to the horses back or they can cause great pain to the animal. Also pack saddles are not limited to the equine relm, ...

Re: Dwarven Horse gear

Years ago I was thinking about writing a fantasy story which would involve a group of light cavalry. They would do a lot of recon work and carried little in the way of armor. Swords, spears some short recurve bows and no remounts. The mission would come first so if your mount was disabled you were l...
