I'm a 28 year old fiction writer interested in economics, history, metaphysics, science, technology, comedy, and politics. My medieval fantasy series Of Hate And Laughter has come at last. This universe of mine is one of infernal majesty.
You are trying to get ready for the war in Syria I guess. But that's nothing but a mechanical sling. It is true they invented the canon in the meantime and gunpowder. But well it might be fun to hunt boars with a trebuchet. Might be frustrating too because aiming with this machine is not very accurate. Dirty Harry might not have liked it.
Hopefully, there can be some sort of cease-fire in Syria. But I fear the big geopolitical actors profit too much as things are right now. The only things I'd "hunt" with a tension design catapult or counter-weight catapult (trebuchet) are walls and towers. ^_^
