Sure it will be easier to find you in the dark, in case you wander off.

me too ._.
I think with all of the testosterone in the camp, there may have been an unhealthy level of grabassing
don't get me wrong, I'm alright with the occasional grabass
I expect as much going into a Barbarian camp
but when booty runs low, well there are only so many pinches one's ass can take

but of course, the dougly one has indicated that the camp will be populated by *noble* savages ...

I still wouldn't put it past them... they're resourceful creatures
and barbarians can only be so civilized with several kegs of beer in them
which is what I can only hope will be awaiting us

Wouldn't mail be more the fashion in the non-barbaric states?
A little bit like jewelry, isn't it?

Besides, it tends to pinch in the wrong places.

What I like about chainmail is how well it transfers heat.

If you get too sore from all the pinching you can always ice it down.

Well maybe even before you get too sore.

You are welcome to try but you will fail at Terminal City. Your meager beardedness cannot match our power and skills. Apokiliptika alone would be your doom.

You're not in Barbarian Camp unless you PM me with all your real-world stats. No room will be made for flakes. I am sure that your barbaric heart understands.

Sounds about right. Bring your friends. But the fur (or whatever that black thing is) may be hot and itchy on the playa during the day. :)

I am going to make a Viking-age tunic and pants out of earth-toned muslin for "sane" day wear, and a deerskin kilt and goatskin cape for ritual purposes. Always bringing "civilian" desert wear (khaki shorts, t-shirt, boots etc) as a backup.

I think that this year fake fur will be the new black. :)

Are you okay with minimizing 20th-21st century appearances at our kamp? I don't mean going with 100% medieval gear, but just hiding modern stuff within reason?

I got a big half-barrel to serve as a drum; as soon as my work schedule settles down, I will get a big piece of rawhide and string it over the barrel for our own brand of oonzoonzoonzoonzoonz!

Yeah, that bear skin would be a little warm during the day.......

I'm also happy to act as "Gothi" (or helper thereof), for any Nordic type ceremony/ritual you might want.........I've some experience with that.......
Even written a couple of my own chants......

Minimizing modern stuff seems a good idea, and, not so super hard to do.......

I'll see if I can get a big drum together, too.....a few might be nice.......

Maybe someone has an "Alpenhorn"......?..........or other large, low toned air instrument? A gong? If I can find it, or who I loaned it too, I have a 4' diameter saw blade that rings nicely.......

i bought a rather flat brass bowl at a flea market, thinking it could work as a gong, then figured i had no way to hang it! i am considering macrame or something. it does make a nice sound, although not as nice as the real thing, of course.

i also have a bunch of muslin, and gauzy stuff, to tie into dresses, but am having trouble figuring out how to do it! did barbarians sew? pins might work...

yes, they sewed. I'd suggest, tying the material into a wonderful pattern, throwing in on a chair, and, go around naked..........

but, that's just me talkin'.......

I'll be meeting with LittleFlower next weekend and we can work on some stuff. Then later in May ? I can go up to Ygmir's place and we can work on the obstacle course.

I have a couple of king-sized bull horns off of a longhorn steer. They will make fine bugles. If I can find trumpet mouthpieces, they'll make a better tone.

Fear not, we'll soon win the prize for most annoying camp!
