(I've tried being a Born Again Christian, and then a Pagan, then a Hedgewitch and all the time I couldn't believe, even though I really wanted to.) Hi Cat, the thing with being a hedgewitch is you dont really need to believe anything, It's about working with nature, and the things you find and see ...

Anybody who has played the PC/Xbox/playstation game Rune will recognise the Kit, the Helmet is the same as is all the other stuff. As for the 'Native american' Guy, he looks more like Conan, and why is he fighting with a sword. And why is the 'Viking' fighting with a Morning star flail. And why, and...

Dont understand the archers not arching at everyone myself. In the Vike (sorry to keep using it as an example) the archers are used throughout the battles. Sometimes for a breather to take on water whilst they do lob shots at the enemy, but also in key stages of battles. They are also allowed to lo...

I think we could manage it but I imagine Hastings has alot of background planning before the actual commanders meetings. Actually Tonw, Hastings is the easiest one to do, because there is so much documented evidence, and we cant change it. Plus we do it year in year out. It's the other smaller show...

I think that the way we script and run battles in the vike works because we vary rarely have other societys with us. and if we do it is usually soemone like Conquest who are used to the way we do things.

In the Vike, we have unit commanders meetings on the 1st day, where we walk the battlefield and discuss the written script. Any problems are usually brought up then. We also have a de-brief of all unit commanders after the 1st days main battle to discuss any problems. The scripts are also sent out a...
