Sound & Fury, for sure
Wine & Alchemy
The Washing Well Wenches
Oh... Shiny!

Poldugarian Warrior

Wine and Alchemy has become a favorite. I've always liked Crannog too. Have yet to see their show this year. An act that didn't make MiRF this year was The Buckle and Swash show, I thought they were hilarious.

Well the problem I always find with knights of Iron is it feels like they go at about 3/4 speed. You can always tell where the blow is going, and how it's going to be blocked.

Judge for yourself.  These were both taken last weekend, and posted by a fan of the show.  One angle. No editing.  Fight begins at 2:05 

Or fight starts immediately.

3/4 speed?  I don't think it is possible to swing an hand an a half sword any faster, and that rapier work is moving as well!

Yer right L. Dale I could see where the sword fighting between you and Robin was a little slower, but not by much. I mean a hand and a half sword is quite tough to move around. I don't know what those other guys are talkin about. And of course the rapier fighting was much faster, but they're rapiers. All in all good show by all yer fighters. I'm hopin maybe this weekend seein the whole show. I've been seeing all the other shows lately.
