The Peasant Dress is a graceful but casual sleeveless dress designed to shine on its own or to be combined with other Epic Armoury clothes . It has a V-cut neckline and is tailored with a slim waist. The dress reaches from the shoulders to the ankles, and has a wide skirt that drapes well and is easy to move around in. The Peasant Dress is fitted with a draw-string cloth brace on the front allowing the dress to be adjusted to the wearer's preference. The brace can be tied shut or be worn visible to help define the style of the wearer. At the waist it is fitted with cloth straps that tie around the back, to help adjust the waist line. The dress is made from comfortable soft, off-white cotton and is tailored to be easily redesigned and dyed if you wish to change it to a more personal style, and is a great basis if you need to develop a special costume. The overall cut fits well in renaissance settings, but is universal enough to go with almost any character or culture you wish to grace.
Black is the favored colour for many warriors and soldiers across the land. It's hard to stain, fearsome and distinctive in combat. These Warrior Bracers are stylish and comfortable to wear.
Your prey is almost within range, tentative as she catches a whiff of something in the air. You have covered yourself in the dirt of the forest and smell more like pine than person, but the deer still seems uncertain.
She steps forward and you pull out an arrow from your quiver, loading your bow. This deer will feed your family for the rest of the week, so you are careful as you take aim. You mustn’t miss your target if you are to eat.
With a sharp ‘thwap!’ your arrow breezes past your Warrior Bracers, soaring through the air and finally hitting its mark, clean and perfect. A painless end to a noble creature...and your dinner.
Epic Armoury’s Warrior Bracers are a set of tough leather arm guards designed to protect the forearms in combat or when shooting a bow. Made from black full-grain leather and embellished with leather at the wrist and elbows, these bracers are both durable and stylish. With the added comfort of soft, black split-leather lining and adjustable leather lacing to ensure a perfect fit, you can also be certain that these bracers can be worn for an entire event. Stitched to prevent the leather from deforming and minimizing tearing, this armour will last a long time with proper leather care.
The style is low-fantasy and compatible with other Epic Armoury leather and metal armours. It will fit most characters and game worlds giving you freedom when customizing your character’s equipment.
Unlike popular belief, arm protection was only called a “bracer” if it was meant to protect the forearm of an archer
Forearm protection not intended for an archer would have been called a “vambrace” or “forearm guard”
You admire the Viking Sword that belonged to your father. The great warrior sailed his last voyage, but your brethren still managed to bring back his weapon specially for you. For that, at least, you are grateful.
Looking down upon the sharpened, freshly cleaned steel, you wonder what this sword has seen. Carried on countless travels, this sword may have shed blood raiding the English coast, been tarnished under the sun of Spain, and been drawn in defense of Miklagard.
One day you will add to its story.
The Viking Sword is a weapon of status wielded by free men and proud warriors of skill and valour. The 95 cm long sword has a 77 cm fullered blade designed to be lightweight while maintaining its structural stability. The 12 cm leather-wrapped handle gives the sword good balance and grip, protected by a curved crossguard.
The Viking Sword can be complemented with a Viking Shield or Dagger. Made from durable closed cell foam around a solid fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.
Originally a Frankish design
Most swords of this design found in Scandinavia were imported or looted from the Frankish Empire
Also referred to as a “Norman Sword”
Gave rise to the Knightly Sword in the 11th to 12th centuries
You are laughing too loud. You realize it must be scaring your enemy, because no one wants to face you on the frontline anymore. They think you are crazed. Maybe you are, because the adrenaline of being in a battle has left you feeling drunk with exhilaration.
If no one will come to you, it’s time to bring the fight to them! One poor soldier desperately strikes at you and you feel the thud of his sword against your Celtic Lamellar, but it hardly makes a scratch. You see the terror in his eyes as your laugh fills the field and you bring the strength of your axe down upon him.
You are Raynor Ironshood. Let them fear you. Let them all fear you.
