Depending on who you talked to the tassels had many varied purposes or none
at all.  It's fulfilling the second pretty well.  Still, I like the old
fashioned purpose.  I use mine to clean my arrow tips.

The presentation method from the beginning was an informal one,  done at
populace meeting or local events, given out by whatever passes for your
local muckity-muck.  Creation of tassels was also left in the air to land
solidly at the feet of whoever you managed to find to make you one or
several.  Personally I made my own in materials appropriate to my time and
persona.  (Wilim is a cheap, lazy SOB so Adam used the cheapest materials
readily available.  A bunch of DMC Floss cost about ten minutes time and
less than $2.00 worth of floss.  It was already wound into skiens so I just
wrapped the top with the appropriate color knot and cut out the bottom of
the skien.)

Anywho,  to make a long story even longer, the system was setup by archers
for archers and is run by archers.  (that'd be y'all... show some
e-nishative.  Y'all are actin' like Canadians waiting for a handout from on
