I'm painting Barnabus Frost, Pirate Captain, and came across an odd situation. On his left side, possibly hanging from his belt, there is an approximately trapezoidal shape that has three tassels hanging from it. I've seen things like it before, being an SCA member and fairly familiar with historical clothing, but I have no idea what it's called or if it serves any use beyond decoration.
I searched Google images, but that was no help. Does anyone know what this could possibly be? For your reference, here is the best picture I could locate of the item:
Most people seem to paint it the same color as his coat, but I like to be as accurate as I can in my painting and would like more information on this interesting object.
James L. Sutter, co-creator of Pathfinder and Starfinder, finds maps of New Orleans highly unlikely and unconvincing. (Warning, some cuss words.)
Can I ask people's considered opinions about the history reference books from Osprey Publishing?
I had been vaguely aware of them Wherever Games Are SoldTM. One or two have fallen into my lap and proven useful.
But I have heard mixed things about them. Some, I hear, are more reliable than others. And I have heard a few rumors that academia doesn't exactly smile on them or those who write for them. I haven't heard anything about those who illustrate for them, but I have an interest in that too.
Since the InternetTM can be unreliable in these things, I thought I'd ask people who stand a better chance of having some experience.
