My targeting with sword and shield, but my targeting with glaive is hopeless. I've been meaning to put a pell in the back with such other accoutrements as are necessary for training (i.e. the hovering tennis ball game), but clearly that's going to have to happen.
On the high side, I killed a newbie with it. Nice kid, shows real promise, if only because she loves it. It's nice to see that kind of energy again. Worked a bit on blocks (thanks Ivar) and some on thrusts (thanks Torin and Balfar), but just generally tried to remember how stuff works.
I'm tired in all sorts of new places. I need to fix my shoulder armor: it's not really in the right place anymore (I think I've lost about 50 pounds since I made it), but more importantly, the para-cord that holds it to the body harness is just about kaput. If I'm going to have to re-thread the leather mounts with the para-cord, I should probably move the damn things to the right place too.
Soon enough, it starts to look like just building a new set is the right thing to do, but I'm just not ready to commit to that project yet. The body armor is too big, but almost completely sound. Some of the other stuff is really getting in the way of my game. I really need some sort of new forearm protection, and a pair of tough demi-gauntlets.
At least the gauntlets finally survived an entire practice.
