Skallagrim

Skallagrim

Lots of water bottles and pumpkins were harmed in the making of this video.

For this one I just felt like messing around with creative (and not very practical) cuts for some viewing pleasure / random amusement. Anything goes, from dual wielding to upside-down cuts and pointless twirling shenanigans.

#Fantasy #Adventurer #Backpack

Wearing a sword in a back scabbard / sheath was obviously not common in history and has been debunked as a fantasy trope many times. But could you make it work, and is it really that terrible?

#Fancy #Knife #Review

If a little bit of realism makes fantasy more enjoyable to you then you may like these re-designs. Some are fairly close to the original style, others significantly altered.

These are some highlights from a recent live hangout with two of my patrons. Answering viewer questions, cracking jokes, and having a good deal of fun.

If you're offended by crude humor you probably don't want to watch this. :)

#Skallagrim #Pommel #lol

Why were they so popular as status symbols and tools of war or personal defense? What made people in many (not all) places and time periods in history see a sword as more valuable or desirable than an axe, polearm, etc?
I don't think there is a definitive answer but I felt like elaborating on my subjective thoughts about this topic.

If you want to know where to get the swords and other historical reproductions in this video:

This is a bit of an unusual review, since I've never struggled that much trying to figure out how to cut with a particular sword (or sword-polearm hybrid in this case?) before.

#Skallagrim #Review #Longsword

This is the recorded, edited version of a livestream I did the day before, where I invited people to suggest swords, firearms and other stuff from video games, movies, anime, etc that they want me to comment on. It was... interesting at times. :)

As usual the main focus was on whether a particular design would be practical in real life, or at least makes a certain amount of sense.

Some of what I talked about:
- Final Fantasy 8 (gunblade)
- Warframe
- RWBY
- Devil May Cry
- Valkyria Chronicles
- Bloodborne
- Titanfall
- Fire Emblem (Chrom's "falchion")

#Subscriptions #Struggle #Demonetization

In many roleplaying systems you find the idea of applying a particular weapon skill to a different weapon at a penalty if need be. So I figured it might be interesting to discuss if and how that would work in real life.

If you're one of the many people who have asked me about the realism in Mount & Blade Warband, here it is... finally. :)

The video starts out with a satirical skit, then gives a short answer to how realistic the gameplay / animations are, and finally discusses in some detail the differences between M&B, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, and real combat.
