code .. ???
alway remember the SCA covers a wide scope of cultures and time periods (i do
so miss my pscho-aztec friend of years past .... g). in many of these
cultures/times the bow is iirrelevent, in many it is predominant. as a general
rule, in the SCA, a blanket statement is always a dangerous thing .. as it
tends to catch fire so easily (g).
for many of us, in our primary cultural affiliations, archery is a novelty or
an irrelevance (keltoi for one .. spear was much more a primary) ... in my
case, luckily i have a additional eastern bent that brings it back into the
primary fold (things scyhtian, mongol, ...) ... by my nature, i do so love
hybridization in all things.
anyone got any plans / designs for eastern bow / arrow cases ... got some ideas
for a belt rig that moves to the harley's saddle bag mounts for secure
transport and open for refinements ... i ask you what could be more "mongol"
than that idea (g)
.. who chooses to live in the *current* middle ages
... truth is the sword of us all (lords of the new church)
