Is Tribe down again?
I can print this up at work. That's what I meant when I said backup.

Sometimes a shovel is just a shovel.
To well-adjusted people, anyway. ;)

So, where's the cemetery? I'll be at your place at midnight. Less than a month to go, we'd better get busy.

By the way, we can have the rental and my truck to drive. If you need us to swing by and pick up some stuff, drop me a PM.

I wonder how much that would cost to do?

can you post an example? yeah, i could find it, but i want YOU to.

it won't cost much .... might be cheaper than chicken bones, in any case.

I haven't found the rules on this, so someone please enlighten me:

We're barbarians. I'm assuming more than a few of us, if not all of us, will be carrying swords, axes, etc.

Do we have to keep them peace-tied at Burning Man?

What can I say-- after doing so many events where it's a requirement --and add to the fact that this is government land-- I assumed they wanted that here, too.

So, we're responsible for our weapons, peace-tied or not. Got it :).

We heard a lot of good things about the obstacle course :).

Inside jokes to remember:

--When pulling up a stake, get a grunt or a Canadian.

--The Green Goblin was our best 'customer' and best source of advertising.

--Yes, you can go across the rope swings backwards, forwards, and upside down :).

--One rock is the wimpy, girly rock. The other rock is the manly, hernia-making rock.

--"Bonehead the Barbarian". He pulls other people's knives and has a goofy helmet :).

--When abducting the other camp's women (even if they *requested* it), make sure you have your weapons ready-- they just might want to retaliate :). If I was wearing pants, I would have been caught with them down.

--I live in a van. Now I just need to find a river to live down by :).

It was definitely an adventure.

More posts as I think of them :).

--Wolfe

P.S. Firefist Ace and Heidi-- As promised, some of the music we played:

-- Corvus Corax: "Cantus Buranus Live in Berlin" and "The Best of"
-- The Arrogant Worms
-- The "Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures" soundtrack

I always thought Bran Mak Morn was much cooler than Conan.

Rumor is that they are making "Worms of the Earth" into a movie. Wouldn't Mark Dacascos make a great Bran?

Hey, Barbarian fans! It has happened. We got imitated. Looky here:

http://www.texrenfest.com/themedweekends.html
Barbarian Invasion!
Uggh! You ! Weakling! Join in the barbarian invasion! The Barbarian King, and his band of barbarian buddies try to prove themselves civilized citizens of the realm. Compete in rowdy contests of barbaric fashion: Worst Dressed Barbarian, Strongest Barbarian, and the Barbarian Obstacle Course. Gather your hoard (sic) and raid the village.


So that means that we are all immortal. Does anyone have pics of the camp by the way?

The texas renfest has been around for a long time.

I used to carry a four foot longsword over my shoulder when I went.
A friend heard the gate guards talking about me once.
One asked if I was allowed to carry live steel like that.
The other one said, "You tell him."



I know of a great squire's training game they had set up out there, that would be great fun on the playa.
