What makes a great archer?
- What makes a great archer depends on what you think of as
archery. In our modern times, playing our anachronistic game,
we understand there are different 'types' of archers. The
modern 'target' archer, the modern 'hunting' archer, the SCA
'target' archer, the SCA 'combat' archer, the Medieval
'target' archer, the Medieval 'hunting' archer, and the
Medieval 'combat' archer. What makes each one of these types
great in his field is not the same. We could ignore the two
modern types of archers, as not really being relevant to the
SCA. But that still leaves us five different types of archers.
So what makes a great archer? Macsen? Anybody?
