Not so much impact. Think it's been done a lot in this thread.
Anyone got any amusing Skyrim videos?
I'm just hanging out, really.

I had to. It's been eating at me all day. So I finally got one.
I had a cool signature, but then I took an arrow to the knee!

Could easily be a regular arrow. 12th century English or Welsh longbows could easily penetrate armor, let alone skin.
"Gerald of Wales commented on the power of the Welsh longbow in the 12th century:
... In the war against the Welsh, one of the men of arms was struck by an arrow shot at him by a Welshman. It went right through his thigh, high up, where it was protected inside and outside the leg by his iron cuirasses, and then through the skirt of his leather tunic; next it penetrated that part of the saddle which is called the alva or seat; and finally it lodged in his horse, driving so deep that it killed the animal."
I'm dreaming when I'm tired, and I'm tired when I'm awake.

In for 2 in case this gets reckoned. I had been sitting on the fence on this one due to the new shirts..., but darn it, I'm weak and know that I would regret it if I didn't pick it up.
Duct tape is like the force. It has a light side and a dark side, and binds the universe together.
