- I am a northern Slav, with Norse heritage.
I shoot various kinds of gear, and I enjoy making complete kits for each archer
that I 'create'
I have a complete 16th century Italian Federation kit (with the extra long
crossbow and all), a Persian kit, a Welsh kit, working on a Norse kit, etc.
You shouldn't hold people to their personnas as much as you should ask that the
components the archer uses fit together properly.
It is my goal one day to be able to show up on the range at Pennsic and shoot
the entire war as a different archer personna every day, without repeats.
just my 2 cents worth
I would have to agree with Master Kaz here. Really as long as the garb
is "authentic" then it shouldn't matter that much. Really if it is good
enough for Master Kaz, who got his Laurel from archery then it is good
enough for me. :-)
Have a nice day!!!

gaurantee you they'd want to try out each others' gear. Shop talk is shop
talk in any age. <G>
I have read accounts of such things in the Middle East, mostly during the
period of the Crusades, when actual fighting wasn't going on. When their
were treaty conferences or trade days going on people might set up impromptu
contests. Under such circumstances it would be unnatural if people didn't
swap equipment for a while.
A long bow and a strong bow,
And let the sky grow dark.
The nock to the cord, the shaft to the ear,
And a foreign king for a mark!
