    Hello, all. I have been looking for a place like this for some time now, and winter in Northern Alberta is a perfect time to spend doing research and hanging out on fora like these, so I should be here a lot. I have built one generic "medievalesqe" crossbow, although it should count as three as it has been heavily reworked a couple of times. I hope to learn a lot from the community here and at the least I will have a few things to contribute as well.

    Hello Jason and welcome!

    Great to see you stop by our Arbalist Guild. I've have been doing my crossbow research on many forums and websites until one day my glass overflowed and with all this excitement and encouragement of my friends I decided to create a crossbow building forum where the previously scattered ideas would be compiled into one and become accessible at one easy to find place...The Arbalsit Guild. Very Happy

    I understand you have run into some trouble when registering and I'm sorry it wasn't a flawless experience. I'm glad you found this place and I hope you enjoy your say.

    Good Day,

    Ivo
