N00b from Waterford

Hi Everyone,
I'm a complete newbie who recently joined the Vadrefjord Vikings/Waterford Living History. I'm probably just going to lurk for a bit and do some reading, pick up some basics while I'm collecting up my kit. I'm one of a new batch of members who are aiming to be competent enough for battle of the flags where I might bump into some members here.

Salve Amice,

Have you ever thought about becoming a Roman, a true warrior?

Vale,

Nerva.

Heill Nerva,

A Viking is a true warrior, a Roman is a true soldier. It is hard enough to resist the urge to break the shield-wall, strip naked and paint myself blue, I'm not sure I'd be cut out for the Legion. Besides a testudo of 1 seems like a lonely place. You do get better shields than us though.
Perhaps you can show me the errors of my ways at flags?

Far þú vel.

Salve Emmet,

According to Collins dictionary Warrior = a person engaged in, experienced in, or devoted to war. Soldier = a person who serves or has served in an army or a strip of bread or toast that is dipped into a soft-boiled egg :) Viking = either of two unmanned American spacecraft that reached Mars in 1976 ;)

Vale,

Nerva.

Heill Nerva,

I am informed by my accuracy officer that the Collins English Dictionary falls outside the period our group recreates, so while I can use it as protective gear under my soft kit to absorb blows, I can't read it. Although that also implies the the English language itse.....Þórr heitir áss, ok er sterkr mjök ok oft reiðr. Hann á hamar góðan. Þórr ferr oft til Jötunheima ok vegr þar marga jötna með hamrinum....

Emmet,
welcome on board...I see you have met Nerva :)
