Greetings all!
« on: 2015-07-10, 22:56:01 »
Greetings, fellow knights and knightly enthusiasts! My name is Dustin and I am from Salem, Oregon in the great Pacific Northwest. I'll be turning 32 towards the end of this month and have been interested in knights and medieval life since as long as I can remember. My first experience of dressing as a knight came in 2004 when a friend of mine and I decided to throw a medieval themed Halloween party. Naturally, I decided that if I was going to dress as a knight then I had to do it right and ordered my first mail hauberk. I made a surcoat to wear (made to look like the Ibelin tunic from Kingdom of Heaven) and purchased the sword of Tiberias from the KOH collection and made quite the impression as most of the party goers thought I went a little overboard on the costume. But it was that night that I realized that this wasn't going to be just a one time costume and decided to work on making a kit that I could be proud of. Skip to years later and I now attend the local faires and festivals as a mid to late 12th century knight.

I'm glad to have found this community and look forward to getting to know all of you worthy knights better over the coming years. Perhaps I will even have a chance to travel around and meet you in person someday in the future.

Thank you for allowing me to become a part of this worthy site.
I've bought your soul, fight well for me!

Welcome good Sir, lt's always nice to meet new friends.
Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright, that God may love thee. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong; this is your oath. (slap) And that is so you remember it. Rise a knight.

Welcome to the forum Brother!
I like your kit you have got going there and hope to see it progress in the future and to see you progress as a knight in the future as well!
Certainty of death. Small chance of success. What are we waiting for?

BTW the northwest is where I may be moving back to next year (I used to live in Portland). It's on a short list of places to be.
