First of all, sorry if I post this in the wrong category!
And second I want to say that I am really looking forward to this game! I have long hoped for a accurate historical game as my hobby is reenactment!
With the latest video updates I saw the archery and it looked great! But one thing caught my eye. The use of arrow quivers on the back. I myself is a longbow archer and have spent a lot of time studying medieval images from this time period (1350-1420) and I have found no quivers on the back. Why? There are several reasons. First, you can not tell how many arrows you have by looking (obviously), you can neither see where the arrow are when you reach for them (and man, that is a long and unnecessary reach!). Someone carrying his arrows on the back will most likely fumble when trying to reach them aswell.
All of the images either shows the archers keeping arrows directly in their belt or in a quiver hanging from the belt. This makes scene because you have much more control over your arrows and you can faster pick them up. Not even on mounted archers is this seen. They keep their arrows hanging either by thier belt or by the horse (let the horse carry it!)
This would also be because of practical reasions.
The only possible use of carrying arrows on the back, would be to do it in larger stacks when transporting them but certainly not in combat.
Here are two pictures showing archers keeping their arrows in their arrows either in the belt or in a quiver hanging from the belt. These images fint right into the timeframe of the game.
I myself feel that if this game is going to be as historical as possible, this should be looked into. As I very much would like this movie myth to go dead!
If you have any proof of back quivers (especially from late 14th, early 15th century please let me know!).
I feel like I have to add something here that I totally missed when I posted this way back!
When I mean by the belt, I mean keeping the quiver at belt hight! By beeing in the belt or hanged over your shoulders like a bag (and the quiver itself ends up at belt level)
