The clone is making himself a new ax… right now.
He saw a photo online yesterday of a particularly real-looking SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism) pole ax, and now he isn’t satisfied with the ax he already has (to be fair, it was getting a bit wobbly and ragged around the edges), even though it looks better than what any of the other SCAdian fighters around here use. Besides, he’s helping with a demo of medieval-style combat at a local fair this weekend, and he always makes himself new stuff before an event.
(Grace is making herself new clothes — a red dress or something — for this same event. She volunteered to be speaker to
humans mundanes the general public at the demo, explaining about the SCA and what they do.)
Someday I should share a few photos of my clone in his current set of armor.
There are days when I consider joining the SCA just so I can put on armor and fight, and see the looks on the other local fighters’ faces when they realize there are two of us… Then I remember that there’s a very good reason why I don’t do medieval-style combat. Being disabled sucks.
