Re: What would you want?
- As a newcomer planning on attending my first Pennsic this year, here
are some generic-type items I'd be interested in:
- Known World Handbook
- Garb or perhaps a "gift certificate" for garb
- Feast basket and/or gear
- Basket or belt pouch
Basically, just about anything period that could replace a modern item
that a newbie isn't likely to have gotten around to yet. Period
equivalents of tote bags or water bottles, or maybe a lantern to
replace a flashlight, or perhaps something artistic that could lend to
the atmosphere of a camp or tent. I don't have a lot of specific
ideas here, since I'm not very clear on what the period equivalents of
some of these items might be, but hopefully this will spark some ideas
for those of you who do know!

- One of the things i've learned in the SCA has been the subtle art of
camoflauge: draped fabric over non-period chairs, coolers, water
Aside from that I am an avid shopper of goodwill/ st. vinnies, etc.
This covers a lot in the area of cheap coverings and feast gear,
If you can't afford period stuff, cover it up. Generally only the
effort will be noticed.
Then there are also Oseburg lamps (essentially a shield boss/ bowl
welded to a long steel pole which holds burning parafin.)
On a cheaper route, tiki torches work well.
