Do we know what the numbers where for how many of each sword were produced in total?
This fantasy sword line may have Hindenburged, but those that purchased one of these blades is now an owner of a particularly limited edition weapon. I'm a bit disappointed that the Aelutian Gladius never made it to production.
I was going to buy one but opted for their grosse messer instead which was a giant mistake as it turned out.
There were two versions of the Aelutian gladius in the Eletreus timeline. The early pre-Empire version is the one Scorpion Swords makes. The later Imperial version was also a member design, and it didn't make it into production.
It was my favorite of the BCI swords. And I really enjoyed rendering Aofie for the webcomic... she was a fun character.
Tbh I consider doing things with it on my own lol. Just for the heck of it.
But I keep forgetting how lazy I am. I'm a man with too much to do is how I justify it 😂
Super happy you and raylon enjoy the sword design lol. It takes the place as a ceremonial tool for me at the moment since there's not much I can do in an apartment
But renting a house is in my goal list for the next couple years. If I can score a place outside of a city I'll be pretty stoked. Lotta acreages to rent I think
"A man with too much to do is how I justify it"...exactly, "well I should probably start with a drink" lol
And space is a serious consideration. When I lived in a city apartment, I had my bedroom become a dojo (thank god for wood floors) with my bed crammed into a corner. Thankfully guests enjoyed the living room and dates didn't mind the peculiarities.
All the swords we brought in have been liquidated and the only swords still available are those that Scorpion Swords made, albeit rebranded as generic Fantasy Swords and renamed.
I posted about it in more detail here at the legendary swords blog - plus there's also some info on what direction the LS site is likely to take from here and some behind the scenes stuff, including previews of a prototype that was in development when the project was canned (but will still be made as a one off custom for my lifelong friend who designed it - though as a one off the cost of brass molding and the detail that will go into the design makes it incredibly expensive).
Some previews of where this one off is up to - the Sword of the Sakkala Spider Riders - a spider themed blade with steel 'fangs' running down both sides of the ricasso and clusters of black obsidian spheres held by cast brass claw like hands representing the eyes of a spider.
While it has been disappointing that the only way we could sell everything was to liquidate it - at least some of the funds invested have been recovered and we can move on to whatever is next.
When things like this happen in life, you have two choices: either give up completely or change course. Personally, the only time I give up completely on anything is when it is clear that the original course is fatally flawed, otherwise I firmly believe that where there is a will there is a way..
One day that site will find its direction - but for now, well, I return you to your regular programming..!
A big thank you to everyone who participated in the project in one way or another. And for the lucky few who were able to grab one of the deals before they all disappeared, hold onto it - they could well become valuable collectors items one day...!
RufusScorpius: Thin with adult beverage of your choice. One short glass at full thickness will fill you up.

RufusScorpius: Actually, 1/3 whole milk (NOT skim), 1/3 cream, 1/3 milk solids. Add sugar, Jamaican allspice, egg yolks, cinammon, clove. Mix to uniform, cook 30 min at 160 (NO HIGHER or it will scorch). Let cool. Store in GLASS ONLY. It will be THICK.

RufusScorpius: It's all about the proportions, you can scale up or down as required. 6 eggs, 21bs nog, 3oz catnip, and 1tsp ground cricket lips. Heat to 180 and cook for 3 days. Let me know how it turns out.

AndiTheBarvarian: My own preferred eggnog recipe is 4 fingers of bourbon and ice cubes!

rannh1: Rufus, share the recipe for the eggnog please!

RufusScorpius: I thought "Sketchy" was an actual store bought alcoholic beverage. It was years later i realized what that means
Oct 1, 2020 2:47:14 GMT
RufusScorpius: Posh posh. It was the cheap hooch that rotted your brain. I should know, i was a soldier once.

Sullivan: Hell, Watch out for that Naegleria, too, speaking of encephalitis. 2020, baby.

Brother Nathaniel: You might be onto something. I always figured it was all of the virgin flesh/blood consumption during the rituals.
Sept 30, 2020 21:49:57 GMT
RufusScorpius: Oy, brother Nathaniel. That explains why you're brain doesn't work quite right...
Sept 30, 2020 21:46:44 GMT
Brother Nathaniel: I made the most ghetto wine one time lol, 96oz Welch's Grape juice bottle, an extra cup of sugar and a packet of yeast. Leave for a few weeks with the cap loosely threaded on. Boom.

RufusScorpius: I ain't telling you what to do, just where to go to find interesting things.... Do as you will with the information. Most likely there will be Mennonite store somewhere in your area that sells it.

Jordan Williams: Rufus are you telling me I need to kidnap the local mennonites and force them to make me this eggnog
Sept 30, 2020 18:04:38 GMT
RufusScorpius: I have an old Mennonite recipe for eggnog that will send you to the moon and back. It's difficult to make, but it's like ambrosia steeped in nectar. It's very thick, as good eggnog should be, but it can be cut down with some Jack

ardhanari: The end result was the best tasting wine/cider I have ever had
Sept 30, 2020 5:32:19 GMT
ardhanari: A baloon is a good way to let the carbon dioxide increase without bursting the container, but I made my own burper. You can buy them online, and I dont wanna explain how I made mine hahha, it was an annoying process
Sept 30, 2020 5:31:34 GMT
ardhanari: I added more sugar and activated yeast, and let it sit in plastic containers i sterilized with bleach water , and let dry naturally
Sept 30, 2020 5:30:27 GMT
ardhanari: I used crab apples cause it grows in a relatives yard and she never uses them. I filled a giant pot with them, cut in hald, with a bunch of sugar. I boiled them on low for a few hours with my spices of choice. When done, I strained them and juiced the pulp
