    I'm with Womble on this, though you could also use Loyalty instead of Honor if you want to hold the latter for matters of personal code.

    Well it's no fun to have your enchanted elf-gate dispelled by the first knight in armor trying to pass. So it should just not work for him. That said, silvered armor would go fine, because it's not...

    Yeah, honestly Balin did Arthur the biggest favor by taking the decision out of his hands. He didn't even have to moan "will no one rid me of this troublesome priestess?"

    I'm not going to die in any of these hills and they're not relevant to KAP. Point is that bronze by Arthur's day would be either very old, very odd (i.e. village-made armor from whatever reused metal...

    Bronze Age America. Also: Michigan Copper in the Med. More is redundant to the limited point of the post.

    Lacking evidence to the contrary, and in need of story hooks, I see no reason why the Frisians wouldn't rebuild Finnsburgh. I presume it was sited for a reason, and Hengest doesn't seem to burn it as...

    This is a good point--there is not enough copper in Europe to fuel the Bronze Age, so once Celtic shipping was destroyed by the Romans they were cut off from the North American copper mines....

    Yes, you have the shipping raid under Uther to serve as a template, with several skirmishes and then at least one battle. May as well set it at Finnsburgh in Frisia, and perhaps even throw in some...

    They burned the dockyards and did some looting and one of the knights in BoU got his hand lopped off while heroically running around with a torch. (Don't remember his name.)
