Since I'm a Viking history buff (hard to guess, right?), a friend sent me this today, which I hadn't seen... and I know we share resources & links often on the +public channel. I'd like to see about putting together some YouTube clips or other quick-access resources for folks who want to learn just a tidbit about a certain subject, or who may be the sort who want to have more detail for their scenes.

So here are a few to get started:

Something on Viking swordfighting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFiIDl_mt2c

Jousting: Full Metal Jousting TV show; the first few episodes especially are good for getting an idea of how things work.

Cool tips on Viking-style shield fighting.

Also this, which is a Sword/Buckler vs. Spear fight: http://www.youtube.c...feature=related

Videos I've seen before. I was going to suggest those as good ideas as to how fighting should go in game. Although the odd Hollywood-style cut thrown in there can't hurt every once in a while :P

And aye, I reckon FMJ should be compulsory viewing for all players who pose knights. Get a sense of the kind of skill (and pain) involved.
