"War is at first like a beautiful girl with whom all men long to play, but in the end like a repulsive hag whose suitors all weep and ache."

Have you ever had the feeling that the more you talk to the knights of a particular reenactment/medieval group, the less you would want to be one?
How can the Order keep that from happening?
I've always heard bad things about the SCA, enough so that I don't want to try and be a part of it at this time. Not because I doubt most of the people being good people, but Its not something Im even interested in all that much, and Id rather no deal with the drama.
I think whats important for any group is open dialogue among members. If a member is being unreasonably strict or harsh on newcomers, its the responsibility of fellow members to speak with that individual. If most of the members of that group are stuck up, I would just avoid dealing with them.

Try experimenting with some other fighting styles.  When I first started in the SCA (many, many years ago) I was skinny and had trouble hitting hard enough when fighting Sword and shield, then I discovered polearms and a whole new world opened up for me.  So try some other things until you find what works.  The important thing is to have fun with it.

Looking for help with XIIIth Cen. style mail Chausses. I am trying to find a set of lace-back Chausses, riveted of course. My request is two-part; first any sources for the chausses themselves, secondly any help with fitting them properly. Authenticity is key for me.

Better yet, don't give me reason to arrest you. Stay home.

Yes but that would mean the Massholes would have to listen to you, and they don't do that as we all know.  ;D


And when did I ever give people an option as if it was a choice for them?? None to recollection. :)

Fabric-store.com is my go to for linen. They have it in various weights from 2.5oz/sq yd to 10.2 oz/sq yd in various colors. If you are looking for underwear type, I'd go with their bleached IL019 (all purpose/middleweight) or IL020 (lightweight/handkerchief). They have a softened fabric option.

Ive Looked every where for some white linen to make a Simple Shirt and Braes. I've ordered Swatches and they are all too rough to be rubbing against my skin. Any suggestions ? Links would be appreciated
