Re: Dwarven short sleeved wool coat - kit update

Turned out great, Iodo! Seems every time I turn around you've cranked out another major garment...makes me feel like I have some work to do!

Re: The Globa - a Late Roman Jerkin

Excellent write-up! As as noted in the opening article of the most recent edition of Edge of the Wild , the Dunedain are a MAJOR topic that receives surprisingly little detail for material culture, and so much effort must be poured into being creative with that we're given, extrapolating where we ca...

Re: MERF Random Adventure Pictures

Fantastic little outing, Taurinor! Sometimes all it takes is sleeping in the backyard to think of an improvement or tweak the kit in some way!

How'd you sleep in your altered setup?

Re: Autumn 2020 available now!

Incidentally, looking over your membership requirements has definitely made certain aspects of the Society more clear to me in terms of what standards you’re looking to achieve, so I greatly appreciate that. Pretty sure I could fit into a Traveller slot myself, with maybe one or two small issues th...

Nicely done!

Re: What about a bit of rope? You'll want it, if you haven't got it: Well, I'll want it.

Looks great, and should be very serviceable--especially if it's genuine manila, and not just fraudulently branded sisal (which is all I've had any luck finding recently). Manila is apparently the best organic rope for wet applications, and excellent in most other regards as well. Agreed. Until mode...

Re: Today I learned a thing...

Moss and mushrooms in various forms both point to active rot...if you see mushrooms at the base of a tree or growing out of the side of a standing tree, don't set camp beneath and/or within striking distance of the tree, because it contains a rotting and/or hollow space which could compromise its st...
