Sweet. I have more than enough for two pieces 11"x4.5", and its fairly thick. About how thick of a piece do you need? I believe this is 7 or 8 oz leather. I might have some 6 oz.


If you can spare two 7 Oz sheets, that should be about 2.8 mm for each according to Tandy leather's guide... I'm over;y concerned with paying my rent this week, but I'll contact you as soon as I can  Cheesy

In other news I have found an extremely interesting article on the place of gender, gender-role and transgenderism in traditional Germanic religion. It may pinpoint a possible origin and real historical background to my elf-like Engelfolk characters!

I doubt the text linked below has any real scholarly value, but being written by a follower of the Asatru/Odinist faith (Paganism), I find that the Diana L. Paxson's research focuses and even predicts some of my assumptions on 3rd gender / Berdache" equivalents in Pre-Christian Germanic societies, which I used to create my Germanic airship characters (Engelfolk/Luftschiffengel).

Paxson makes her arguments in the context of available Nordic Sagas and Eddas, and known history of mediaeval Scandinavian people just prior to the adoption of Christianity. She compares that to analysis of Roman-Era texts which recount earlier Germanic societies and cult practices, and concluded that homophobia in latter texts is by itself evidence that at some point there was a strong relation between the female gender role and the belief in magic powers, among them the practice of oracle readings and crossdressing in religious ritual:

Ladies and gentlemen: we have reached page 100. You may still reply on this page before we start the next thread with all of us giving introductions.

This thread will be closed in the next 24-48 hours just giving people time for people to write whatever. On Friday night/Saturday morn, forum traffic is very slow anyway, so it seems an ideal time to close the thread. I will create the next thread later tonight!

You have to tread a fine line between avant-garde surrealism and getting yourself sectioned...
