Moving in Armor

Everyone knows that plate armor = encumbrance.
It's like having cinder blocks strapped to your torso, arms and legs, right?
Actually, no.

Re: The Tavern

Wolgemut is a traveling band from Europe. I see them every year at the Pennsic War. The Green Dragon is only a medieval tavern - which is to say a tavern catering to medieval folk - one week a year, plus whenever the site is used by the SCA. Other than that, it's used by whoever is using the campgro...

Re: The Tavern

The menu included bread and cheese, mead, beer and wine. There's also a flat top for cooking meat, although there was nothing cooking when I was at that end of the room. In the middle of the floor - you can just barely see it in the last photo - is a big iron fire pit which has a charcoal fire burni...

The Tavern

I was at Gulf Wars two weeks ago, which is an SCA event held in Mississippi. I had a blast, but the weather was very cold. A friend and I were walking home from a bardic gathering, and we were passing one of the few permanent structures on-site, which serves food and drinks, so she said: "'Let'...

The Walking Thread - Warning, there will be spoilers

Any fans of The Walking Dead TV show here? Let's discuss. Does anyone else wonder what would have happened if, when Negan knocked at the gates of Alexandria, someone inside had just shot him in the face instead of letting him in? Negan has clearly been keeping his group under control by the force of...

Re: All around great music

I have a long road trip coming up, so I've been burning CDs for the ride (yeah, I know, "Get an iPod. But my car is old, and the stereo doesn't have an iPod jack. But I digress...) and dug out an oldie but goodie. Til Tuesday - Voices Carry There's just something about the bass line in this son...

Re: The Great Classic Rock Thread

Cool Stik, Sounds like a fun show. :thumbs: It as a good show. Only problem was it started 90 minutes late due to the rain, and so both acts cut their sets short. I had VIP seats - right behind the orchestra section. Not in the orchestra section, which was good, because the orchestra section was fl...

Re: Movie quote game

The horse/dog/cat/bird line was from Thor, so you have given a correct answer, RPGD.
The other line was from This Is Spinal Tap, one of the great cult movies of all time.
Go!
