It worked for Rollo the Norman, how his line became the Dukes of Normandy.
What weapon should I procure for my wyfe so that she may defend my chateau, my children, and get honor when I am away in London? She is of stout peasant stock, but is, as her sex is inclined to be, fearful of sharpe blades and the report if the handgonne. Would a small bowe be best?
>>22424340 >implying monasteries >implying i dont spend every single sundial rotation reading scrolls about modern arms and chart everything the only good thing the axe can manage over a mace is a blade instead of a metal ball that shatters your enemies bones, and blades are only good against unarmored fags
Chilled Iron is only famous due to the marketplace assassins and is only popular among that group.
A man at arms in the retinue of my lord purchased a Chilled Iron broadsword, and after only three swings against peasants, the blade came loose from the hilt! Now, the worthy man at arms thought quickly and drew his dagger so he could retreat. My lord's master smith examined the Chilled iron blade and found its quality to be lacking severely.
Avoid them at all costs, for their weapons are not made for the rigors of combat, but for knaves such as yourself to carry and hang on their mother's wall while they pretend to be knights and men at arms.

>>22425090 Come to the Golden City of Kiev. Its green and healthy all around, the people are nice, you have based Orthodox christianity (and we dont give a fuck if you are not christians) and I can absolutely assure you, that no fucking mongols will ever come as far as here. And even if, I'm sure we would defeat them without problems; I mean, the Rus are a mix of vikings and steppe nomads, there is no way that a bunch of asian horsefuckers would ever best us.

>>22427052 >Eastern soap of the Sandalle Woods I wouldst not smell of a heathen temple, I thank thee kindly. My forefathers and all those of the stead in which I tend my lands have made our baths for o'er a thousand of the Lord's years with soap of tallow, ash, and the sweet-smelling produce of our forests. Our heathen ancestors did smell of clean humors, as we enlightened Christians do in this modern age.
Joined a local HEMA club yesterday. We're doing german longsword. We can't afford steel and don't like sinthetic, but the teacher is a carpenter who does some really nice and moderately detailed wooden swords. He offered to make one for me after the model I choose. What should I ask for?
>>22427967 Art thou a subject of such a poor realm that thine footmen are not issued halberds by they king? I weep for thee, poor plebeian. No, even a pleb has wealth, despite it being in goods rather than land. Thou art little more than a serf, I surmise.
>>22423697 >>22423709 >>22423769 >>22423774 >>22427887 (Out of character comment: Sorry but the historian in me just can't let this go. The idea that medieval people never bathed and thought that bathing was harmful is a myth. Medieval people were actually very concerned about personal hygine, although for different reasons than us. They thought that poor body odour and dirtiness indicated the presense of sin and poor moral character. So even peasants made sure to wash themselves every day. True you didn't immerse yourself in water like we do unless you were rich but you could still haul water from the well, scrub yourself with soap and then rinse yourself off. Priests at the time did rail against public and communal bathing, but that was because they thought it led to lewd behavior.
The idea that medieval people never bathed was invented during the Enlightenment era, along with the notion that medieval people thought the world was flat, and that a nobleman could sleep with any female peasant on her wedding night, in order to discredit the old medieval order that enlightenment era intellectuals were trying to overthrow.)
Okay rant over. Sorry but the idea that no one back then bathed just drives me up the wall.

>>22423863 Observe the spotted urchin yonder! So desperate is he to appear as knight, full grown, unto his peers that he doth strive to spake as though he were a character from one of his illuminated scrolls of comic tales. For, much to the amusement of all about him, he hath confused the conduct of the characters in said scrolls for that of true knights!
Forsooth! Harken unto this reaction tapestry and thou shalt see mine face as I read the scribbling of this most entertaining page.
My fellow /k/nights, So the other night I was laying my seed inside of some cute peasant woman. Once I was putting my armor and sword back on she told me nobody needs a sword and that she'll lie tell the other maidens that I posses an inferior naked sword. So I told the kings men that she was a witch and she was burned before she could tell the other peasant girls. What's the deal with these anti sworders and their obsession with claiming we have small phallus? Damn wenches.
>>22423603 Selaam, Effendi. My name is Kerman Aslanul Papadapolonolgu.
I'm a 15 year old Greek Turkophile. I draw rosette flowers and geometric Arabesque designs for mosques and spend my days playing the shawm for a mehter band (Ceddin Dedden, Hukum Marsi, Ambassador Marsi)
I train with my composite bow, musket, mace, kilij saber, spear, and javelin (both on foot and mounted) everyday. My training regime keeps me superior over any other infidel who only specialize in one weapon. The Spahi approves of my training and I shall be selected for the annual Devirsme Child-Slave tax next year.
I speak Turkish fluently, both the original Seljuk and the Ionian "Rum" dialect and I write fluently as well. I know everything of Turkish history from their humble beginnings as wandering nomads to their glorious conquest of COnstantinople (properly called Istanbul, infidels).
When the governor places me to slavery, I am moving to Istanbul to train in the prestigious Janissary Military Academy near Topkapi palace. I hope I can become one to fight against the Infidels of Europe, or decide who the next sultan will be!
I own several turbans, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I am enslaved, so I can serve the Sultan easier. I bow to the homosexual desires of my elders and seniors and yell in Turkish as they thrust their flaccid penises in my tender backside, but rarely does anyone want me in their bed.

Art thou insane? Tis the work of the Hebrews! Those killers of Christ are poisoning the wells of Christian towns! Thou should do as the men along the Rhine, and torture all Jews until they tell you where they got the vile miasma that they pour down the wells.
Nay, overheard a swath of peasants chattering on about tundra aquila and the tremendous power they possess when carried in secret. I could only assume they had partaken in the teachings of the AcrobatFellow.

I did buy a weapon from beyond the pond yonder, they sent it to me in pieces leaving me tossing turning sleepless, I must forfiet more gold to have it fixed by some shoddy gunsmith for more than i paid for it :[
This rowdy unshaven peasant dressed in "beige" who dare'd to suggest our horses are spineless cowardly creatures that would not carry their most noble riders into combat should be stoppe'd ere he pollutes the thoughts of other feeble minded peasants with his nonsense.
Fellow men at arms, I beseech the to honor my request.
I require aid. I have ridden long from the lands which I called home, paid by a Boyar of Muscovy, to help him with a little problem.
While out hunting, he lost one of his men at arms, and days later, the man came back: changed, with sickeningly bruised skin and a hunched back and a strange gait. He behaved strangely, but for someone who had just "survived a boar attack" it was nothing out of the ordinary.
Little did the Boyar know that an insidious infection was beginning to take hold. This man lured his fellow hunters into the woods to "wash his wounds out in a stream" and soon more men returned changed. They then returned to their families and continued this process: something stealing their skins,if not their souls, and walking amongst us almost unnoticed.
Fearing the worst, that this infection would reach Novgorod, the Boyar paid me to help him assuage his problem. However, it was far too late.
His small hamlet is overrun with these creatures: appearing as broken men in the daylight, but filling the night air with chittering and guttural perversions of speech as the sun falls. We have hold up in his castle, as the "flesh-walkers" cannot seem to scale the walls nor seem to attempt to break down the door. Methinks they behave like the night-creatures of Lord Tepes' lands, and must be invited in.
Bless the stonemason that built these walls, but we are out of arrows and have naught but three months food left. Leaving would be suicide, as Novgorod is at the least four days ride away: they would take us at night.
Please, my fellow /k/nights, harken to my aid. There is gold, and many jewels, for those who come. This Boyar is a greedy man, but not stupid, he can regain his wealth but not his life.
I trust this falcon hath found one of the brotherhood to relay this message. Attached is a scribe's impression of mine own countenance as I returned from the first and only time we sallied out to meet them.
