No need to rush anything – I actually just ran across these while looking for something else. But we are planning an update to Weapons Vol. II before Christmas if possible. I also expect to have 1 or 2 more of the Schutzenfest invitations translated (or at least, the parts about the distance to the target and number of shots for crossbow and gun) so that will give us some more data to play with. Might be a couple of days on that.

If I can find the schutzenfest ‘songs’ and match them to the rules that would really be helpful because it will tell us how many people qualified at specific events, how many hit the bullseye enough times and so on, so we’ll have a more accurate baseline of how ambitious these regulations were. They also tell you things like how many accidents there were and so on.

Stand by for more!
