51  Gear / Weapons & Armor / How to secure a handle for a punch shield on: November 25, 2009, 12:20:07 am
Ok my next project is going to be a punch shield. But i am having a small problem. This is how im going to make it and then you can give me any advice you might have.

2' wide x 3' tall
Made entirely out of Blue Camping Foam with DAP as my adhesive.
3" thick (6 layers)

The problem i am having is im not sure how to secure the handle without it falling out and coming apart.

Any suggestions? Thanks Dagorhir.

When at a practice in Maethodoron, we dont usually worry about hitting ourselves. We assume that you are smart enough to NOT chop off your own arm or leg.

That sounds like the specifically prohibited Magic Switch. The rules say drop it, folks will allow you to put it behind your back. I'd fight a few times and see what works for you.

though i still wouldnt switch it to my dead hand, this doesnt sound like the "Magic Switch" to me. I consider the Magic Switch when (ex) someone loses their sword arm, drops their shield and just hands over his sword to his good arm. To keep fighting. In that instance, he hadnt planned on fighting with the bow, just protecting it from being broken.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and websites.

Maximus,
first is there a way i could talk to you about the armor besides this forum? so we dont have to keep posting back and forth? And which measurements do you need besides my chest and shoulders? Im gonna have a friend measure and Ill get them to you so maybe you would be able to give me a rough estimate. Based on the type of armor i wanted if you do the custom thing. And it might be a UPS shipping thing if we can do that, cause other than that, i would have to wait till Gates of Fire to see you. If you are going to Gates. Unfortunately i dont make it out towards Taurendor or eastern PA. dont really have any time for the trips. Hope you can get back to me. If you have AIM you can IM me anytime. My screen name is izadsunrifter
55  Gear / Weapons & Armor / Looking to Buy Leather Armor. on: November 08, 2009, 03:35:30 am
I went through a lot of pages and didnt see much along the lines of people selling armor. Nothing with a recent post date at least. And the older ones i did find, i assumed that they were probably gone or the thread author probably stopped checking it.

Anyway, I am Izad of Maethodoron. If you know me, you have seen how big i am. Not very. I am 6' tall and weigh 130 punds. So i am looking for reasonably priced Leather Armor to fit me. So if there is a Dag Member that is trying to get rid of their armor please let me know. Or if anyone knows a good website for it, please let me know. Thanks everyone.

P.S. Come out to our Winter Event. Everything will be posted when the time draws near.

My name is Izad. I am a veteran in Maethodoron. In Indiana, PA. I have been with the group for going on 4 years now. I can safely say for us, that if you want to come out to a practice, come on out and meet us ( if you are still interested in this) cause i see that this post was back in May. But i just found it. Anyway, come on out and meet us. We fight in the Oak Grove on the IUP campus every Sunday at 2:00pm and for now at least, every Friday at 4:00pm. We would be glad to show you some stuff and im sure we have some weapons for you to try out and fight for a while.

And then if you want to start your own Realm you can do that or we could talk about you starting a Unit under our banner.

Thanks to Alric for suggesting us.

64  General / Rules rules rules / difficult weapon legality question #6 on: October 11, 2008, 11:17:00 pm
Alright, i dont know if this would work or not but i was reading this and just thought of a way to maybe, secure a stabbing tip.

I dont think it would hit any harder and keep in mind that this is just an idea and im not telling anyone that "This is how to do it"

So it goes like this, when you get the stabbing tip ready to put on. Maybe sew a small cover, just big enough to put over the stabbing tip and tape it down at the opened end. Then finish your tip, if you put the third layer over the tip then do that. Then just cover your weapon.

Like I said, just an idea. I never tried it just throwing it out there.

ok and once you have it bent and its still warm,how do you cool it to keep the shape that you have? without hurting it?
66  Gear / Weapons & Armor / Scimitars on: October 09, 2007, 09:17:00 pm
ok I was at Badon Hill II, my first event, but I saw a fighter there that had two swords that i admired.  I believe they were scimitars. The blade was red and curved one way but the handle was curved the opposite way.  But what i noticed avout them is that they were pretty thin.  Mine are kinda chubby looking blades. but a thinner one is what i am looking for. But if anyone knows how to do this please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it. thank you dagorhir.

Thanks Drentha for throwing a good day event, we from Maethodoron had a fantastic time. And i am glad i didnt miss it. The fighting was great, scenarios were great and the socializing was awesome as well. So we will see you guys at Badon Hill and hope to fight and party with all of you.

I'll be there, obviously. I cant wait to get out with another realm and fight some. I think a lot of people would agree that it sucks fighting the same people over and over at practices. Besides, i think Eilyd would be disappointed in me if i didnt come at this point.
