Trebuchets, Trebuchets, Trebuchets: where geeks get medieval on thine ass. Some people have a love of history, spare time and an excuse to buy more tools.

Also, there's Gulf Wars XII for y'all next March. And, courtesy Nova, for the shockwave addicted, Play Destroy The Castle! Manual here. Also, here's the Virtual Trebuchet java applet. And last, massive trebuchet linkage.
