Tux asked about fighting from wheelchairs or with other disabilities.

I was going to mention this file to her, but this is probably the  
file she found, just in case anyone else is interested:
disabilities-msg  (84K)  4/17/05    Disabilities in the SCA and  
period, hiding
                                       wheelchairs, SCA sign language.

However, it doesn't have as much info about compensating for  
disabilities when doing SCA combat, either armored or rapier, as I  
would like. I would appreciate anyone replying to Tux by email to  
consider copying me with their message.

Hmmm. I have only a little bit on waterwheels in the Florilegium, and  
even less on windmills. So, I'd love to get more info on either.
mills-msg          (8K)  2/ 8/08    Period water, wind and animal  
powered mills.

And for those who have recently moved info Ansteorra or who might be  
moving from Ansteorra to another kingdom in the future, you might  
find these files in the NEWCOMERS section to be useful.

the group too.
