Allied Kingdoms: Heroic Dreams — All Things Medieval

At, you can be sure to find the finest Medieval clothing in all the land.  But clothing is just one important element to understanding and appreciating the Medieval era.  There are countless ways with which one can study and interact with this important historical period.

We became very aware of this fact when we met Will Kalif, who runs the site Heroic Dreams – All Things Medieval.

Heroic Dreams is a virtual treasure trove of information on and endless list of topics that is sure to peak anyone’s interest.  The site is well maintained and the archives date back to August 2006.  The site is even broken down into categories so that you can conveniently browse through the topics of your choice.  Some examples of the categories include:

  • Movies
  • Books
  • Wargames
  • Board games
  • Lord of the Rings
  • Dark Ages
  • Medieval Weapons
  • For Writers
  • Websites
  • Siege Engines
  • Dungeons and Dragons
  • Blacksmithing
  • Comics
  • Many, many more

One post we loved was a post that instructed you on how to make cardboard shields for your Halloween costume.  These shields can be used for any other type of occasion, look great, and are simple to make.

So make sure to stop by Heroic Dreams.  And if you do, let Will know that we sent you!

    I love the Ren Faire! It really is a great place for puritce taking. I missed it in NY this year, but found out there is one about 2 hours away from me here in NC that runs until mid-November. I’m hoping to get over there in the coming weeks. Great photos!
