Cool illustration - and yes, it has taken a while to settle on its final form/size but I think that with the Tuath De story taking shape about a race of unique, silver haired sleight of build people and the sword in one hand and a shield to protect their relatively frail bodies makes for one great tale in the telling.
The specs have been submitted to the forge, will keep you posted if they have any questions or need some additional feedback/info.
Yeah, kind of elves - elfin or fay, they are indeed a unique peoples..!
With regards to the scabbard, yeah - leather is better. With these swords I will not be making them to budget but rather to spec. This may make some of the swords more expensive depending on how hard they are to make, but I want these swords to be top of the line in terms of quality first and price, will be what it costs plus a modest profit to reinvest in more designs and production runs that is the same for each model.
Still waiting on the quotes and more feedback from the forge, but slowly slowly wins the race.
Midnigh7Run: You're very welcome! And agreed, no hard boiled eggs in lasagna for me. Though... I do like pineapple on pizza.

Djjinja: I dunno if I would want hard boiled eggs in my lasagna, but thats the canadian in me talking
Jul 23, 2021 6:15:48 GMT
Djjinja: huh, I never knew that. Thanks for the information man. I am Canadian, so I know nothing of real Italian food, we are the ones who disgraced their pizza with pineapple

Midnigh7Run: Sorry. Bit of a food nerd and my chef buddy indulges and enables me. It doesn't help.

Midnigh7Run: Or even try the more traditional recipes and styles. So as they're generally treated by most folks? Yep. Same dishes different pastas. But the history behind them (not including you Baked Ziti) is pretty interesting. As are the flavors.

Midnigh7Run: Traditional Lasagnas supposedly hail from Naples. And had some..odd...ingredients. Like hard boiled eggs. Nope.... But generally Lasagna is Lasagna. That said, for all of these dishes, you can change the ingredients up.

Midnigh7Run: Baked Ziti is basically "Mom's Easy Lasagna" casserole. Cause if there's a dish, we'll find a way to butcher it into submission as a casserole lol. It's strictly an American "Italian" thing. Though it's kinda similar to some European dishes.

Midnigh7Run: In traditional Mediterranean, Italian, or Sicilian cooking, the same dishes can vary widely with ingredients. Pasta Oli Olio is a rather light spaghetti dish that's almost devoid of what we consider the dish here in the us. But still delicious.

Midnigh7Run: A ton of folks and even restaurants tend to treat Italian food like "Mexican" (TexMex folks... The US has TexMex) dishes. Same 5ish ingredients, rinse, repeat, add oregano.
Jul 23, 2021 0:40:09 GMT
Midnigh7Run: @djjinja. Not Italian but, I was a firefighter so.. I cooked a lot of pastas. Of the dishes you mentioned, Stromboli is the outlier as it's basically a hot pocket lol. But overall, as far as "Murican" pasta dishes are concerned, yep.

Djjinja: To any Italians out there: Is the only real difference between Stramboli, Baked Ziti, Spaghetti and Lasagna the noodles and cooking method?
Jul 22, 2021 23:52:28 GMT
Djjinja: ... The part of owning a Hamster named Slamster is true, just got to mention. The other part was an unrealistic joke hahah, as if it could ever happen. We actually invited him for lasagna, I never make Stramboli
Jul 22, 2021 23:50:40 GMT
Djjinja: Slamster had his last slam battle, causing him to willfully leave with Richard Gere
Jul 22, 2021 23:49:54 GMT
Djjinja: If you guys think hamsters are bad, wait till you meet the wretched chinchilla

soulfromheart: My word of advice : don't mess with the War Groundhogs. Their bunkerholes are near impenetrable and they're naturally distrustful of letting anyone enter. Only someone as suave (and daring!) as Brother Nate may have a chance but hamster queens are easier.

soulfromheart: Just don't eat what's inside the sandwich bags. Taste funky despite looking quite fresh.

LoE: Welcome to amusing mayhem. This room is like a Monty Python sketch.
Jul 22, 2021 22:14:28 GMT
glendon: Anyway, hello, room!. Got no idea who is which, but I do enjoy the madness.
Jul 22, 2021 22:03:13 GMT
glendon: No enhanced-eucalyptus, they just sit there, lick their thumbs and smile.
Jul 22, 2021 22:01:41 GMT
glendon: Regarding the Koalas: Nah, you just gotta remember to target their enhanced-eucalyptus packs, located at the back of the neck. Splash those with a multi-function collagenase, and the tubes running to their mouths disintegrate.
