* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Some recent bladed thingies
« on: November 25, 2016, 12:06:57 pm »
I've been making a few blades of bone and slate recently, and gradually hafting them up - here are the first two, a few more will follow as i marry the other bits together over the next few days or so-ish.

This is a big and wide slate blade with a pear wood handle, fixed it with with pine glue and a couple of bands of real sinew.  There is a dab of epoxy under all that other stuff for lasting durability, just an insurance policy really!







It's a bit of a beast

And this one is apple, a bit more elegant than the other:





I've no idea if anyone ever uses clubs in their rituals - but i like this next one just for general prancing around the house, pretending it's the cave i've always wanted:





Made from a piece of ash that i've had lying around for several years and with a bone blade and leather hand wrap.

I've been in a very cave-y mood of late, it's a lot of fun making stuff like this :)

Nice work! And what a fantastic skill to have.
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

That looks almost-disturbingly like a femur bone! Can I join in the prancing? :D:

Indeed!  I've built a small fire on my rug for everyone to dance around and am currently using strawberry jam for war-paint :D  bring biscuits
