Live steel and fighting...

I did get to southern region, but it didn’t go as planned, I got sick. The heat was torture and I could barely walk with my garb, I couldn’t place any armor on. I did get to see Duke Sir Gregor and Duke Sir Ice falcon, and said my hellos. They look great, Gregor is my age and he looks like a man in his thirties and still fights like a demon and Andre is still a fantastic leader, readying the troops for war. I didn’t get any armor from ICOD, but I did get one gauntlet from my friend Bill who is still digging through his huge packed storage rooms looking for stuff for me. So I have to wait till after Pennsic war to see what I’m going to do about Heavy combat, everybody asked if I was going and where was my fabled pole arm, but I’m nowhere near ready. I’ve been wondering if this is my mid-life crises, wanting to take arms up again and do battle like I did in my 20’s and 30’s? It’s funny, no fast cars and young hot chicks for me, just Armor, swords, and glory…

Ah Scadians….. Here’s some live steel combat I’ve found on the net including some great Viking battles. Those European guys are nuts!
