DAGGERS

Daggers have always been a common weapon in both medieval history and fantasy. Sometimes daggers are used in combat and sometimes for ceremonial purposes. In my fantasy series, I am thinking of featuring daggers that are used for both purposes. I will therefore draw inspiration from the various daggers I encountered at Medieval Times and include features from each one.

MEDIEVAL TIMES TOMORROW

Tomorrow, I will be receiving a small taste of the medieval life as I go to Medieval Times. One could say that my tastes in sports are somewhat old fashioned. I love medieval tournaments because they depict men in armor colliding with one another on horses and then clashing with swords, axes, and maces. However, even though this will be a fun experience, I am not going there strictly for fun. I am also going there to gain inspiration on the medieval lifestyle for my fantasy series. The story will begin with a tournament like this and I want to examine every detail of this event. I will keep you updated and give you my review.
