FF XIV Polearm, featuring A&A!
« on: 2014-05-27, 17:22:18 »
Another one of those segments on Geek and Sundry, except this time with Arms and Armour!  Although I could care less about the weapon itself, it's cool to see Craig in action making a polearm, and one of the ACL guys smashing stuff with it.

Heh, that's awesome. :) That reminds me, I need to contact Craig again about fixing up my Edward III sword.

I like when Medievalists like ourselves can bring the Historical side to fantasy.

Jake Powning and more Andre Sinou.

They are somehow getting the best smiths in the business for this show.

That mace is scary, but it is so slow I really don't think it would be that effective in combat.

Not very sensible for a one handed weapon in personal combat to weigh so much.

I don't think the weapons from video games are in any way intended to be sensible, usable or practical guys.... they're fantasy weapons for a reason.  I was merely pointing these videos out because they feature people like Craig Johnson, Jake Powning and Andre Sinou.

I think these are fun little videos. Plus let's be honest, we are no daedric lord or Dragon Born, so of coarse it seems heavy. That armor looks familiar, is that not the one that got stolen awhile back?

Good eye, yes I believe that is Icefalcon's harness that was stolen and eventually found again.

Good to see that it returned to its master :) I was wondering if he'd ever get it back, very lucky man.

Speaking of stolen armour, my friend Sir Oz Conradsson of Caid (SCA) had his armor stolen just last week. He only got the Belt at Potrero War 2 weeks ago too.

Looks like another episode of "Knights"  ;)
