Adding here a small blubb about blades and bladed weapons as well as projectiles. Usually little movies like these are taking a popular approach to making things easily understandable for the audience in front of the television. However, these are made with Stuart Prior (bald, tattooed guy), who is a professional archaeologist specialiszed, among other subjects, in medieval archaeology, weapons and warfare. It is rather easy to rp fighting, shooting and engaging in combat, but often one is not aware of the actual effect a weapon or projectilen can have and how powerful even rather small weapons can be. Enjoy.

Weit in der Champagne im Mittsommergrün,
dort, wo zwischen Grabkreuzen Mohnblumen blühn,
da flüstern die Gräser und wiegen sich leicht
im Wind, der sanft über das Gräberfeld streicht.
