My goal is to look and act exactly as my persona would have on the
field. Thats all. No offense to any intended but fighting is not my
main interest. I have no desire to wear a belt of white at any point.
It isn't period for my persona nor is it something I strive for.
During the time while I've been no longer fighting I've been
researching. Everything and anything I can concerning behavior,
speech, armour, weapons, general clothing, period decoration for both
armour and soft kit.
Fighting style is something I will learn once I have the round made
as that will be a new style of shield for me.
I plan on striving for the OMMA only once I have achieved the goal of
getting my entire kit correct. Being correct in totality means more
then just being correct in one side of my recreation.
