Back in the old days (before things like Figure 8 devices and clothes and suchlike) people used to rappel by wrapping a line around themselves a couple times and jumping off cliffs. My excuse is that I just wanted to hang there longer than I otherwise would have been able to...
The final "stretch" set from the Kickstarter project was a redo of a series I did waaaaaaay back when, featuring some air assault hijinks. There's a little rappelling, a little fast-roping, even a little helocasting; all re-imagined into this odd sci-fi 'F2' universe. As always, there was no intent to portray actual techniques, just some 'one frame' cinematic fun.
