I was reading this when I got the picture of that wonderful armour seen at,
I believe it was Pennsic 2 years ago.  Could someone please pass the whole
story on to me...and refresh me as to who made that armour and who wore it
because they had lost a bet?

I simply remember looking at the picture and thinking that the colours made
me want to laugh merciously and yet I had a strange draw to want to wear it
into battle at least once in my life.

up and down and run around yelling and screaming...They don't know I'm only
