Speaking of shields
- baronconal said, "You can trace out a pattern on a flat piece of plywood and
screw a handle to the back or you can make a shield so nice you consider leading with your head and putting the shield behind your back so no one
hits it. Where do you want to fall between the two?"
I guess I'd rather be a little bit on the side of "so nice." The shields in my group look pitifully homemade - I mean 21st century cobbled together homemade, not Medieval homemade. At least, I'd like my shield to look as good as my armor.
