Your squire slips the custom-fit Hourglass Gauntlet over your hand, adjusting it to be comfortable and snug. You paid top coin for this armour, and you expect people will be impressed when they see how it shines on the battlefield.
Your blacksmith assured you that the Hourglass Gauntlets’ design was the latest in technology, able to withstand and deflect attacks--even the worst of slashes to make it beyond your sword’s crossguard. You are a mighty warrior, indeed, to be the owner of such fine craftsmanship. A fitting symbol of your godly-given status.
