Atlatl

Is there something you love, something you hate, something you'd like to see? Here's the place to bring it up. And don't forget that Infamous Green Marine.

Atlatl

Whenever Sarah appears, her spear is shown, but never her bone spearthrower (atlatl). I would like to see this detail.

I've tried several times, but so far the results have been disastrous. As have my attempts to actually use an atlatl. Those things seem a wee bit trickier than slings. I'll keep working on it -- the graphic, not the martial art. Perhaps in Season Nine. Wish me luck!

There's also the embarrassing fact that atlatl darts can be substantially smaller, lighter, and of different design than thrusting spears of the sort Sarah carries in many of her graphics. I rather glossed over that bit. Oops :)
