Here is the place for anyone--yes, anyone, even though the name is "chicks with swords"--to talk about swords, and post pictures of their swords. Here, we can be among those like us and not be thought "freaks" by those who don't understand the beauty of the blade. Anyone is welcome to join. We can post pictures, discuss preferences, and host historical or philisophical dicussions, or just go "Ooooh! That's pretty!" as much as we want.
There will be no flames, no fights. Debate is fine, but keep it civil, huh?
Pictures, stories, lessons, anything and everything is fine. Gamers, SCA members, blade afficianados, blacksmiths, whoever, are all welcome. Someone knows a lot about swords? Feel free to enlighten those of us who are just starting out. This is supposed to be a fun community, people. Make sure we keep it that way.
Much and many thanks to Jennie Breeden, who gave me permission to use one of her awesome comics as an image for the community. You can read her very very funny webcomic at The Devil's Panties (it's not Satanic Porn!) and Geebas on Parade (life of a LARP-er comic).
