*Phew* VERY intense week w/robotics (I got a picture of myself courtesy of a friend's digital camera though, all they need to do is send it to me and I can be up on the site...). Anyway, here's Dygan's armor. Two down, one in making, two to go:

BTW, check my elven

The armor, és' nyermér' cár (Styrash lit. in/battle/life), is one of the most useful and practical battle artifacts in history. While weapons of incredible power have their purpose, this armor is good for protecting a soldier from harm, which is often overlooked in lieu of combat power.

The armor appears as chain mail, a set of interlocking rings. The metal is bright, but all together uninteresting. As far as appearence goes, it is a well-polished suit of ordinary armor.

The differences between the ordinary is apparent, however, when the armor is donned. Unlike chain mail, there is little strain upon the shoulders, the weight more evenly spread throughout the body. It also does not chafe the wearer, but a padded shirt under it is desirable.

When this armor is united with it's brethern, the weight becomes little more than a shirt, and it does not constrain a person as normal armor. Truly made for a light, quick fighter in mind, it takes away the disadvantages of armor (restricted movement, weight, etc.) while keeping the most notable advantage, protection. The armor protects itself extraordinarily well, but it does not offer any other protection until united.

Like the rest of the set, és' nyermér' cár defies magical divination. Rumored to have been forged during the Age of the Anvil, the history was remarkably quiet for the majority of it's existence. What is known is that it was one time found by Ledom Heartswind, a wealthy spice merchant of Voldar, before the Age of Awakening. How Ledom came by this armor is unknown, but it was introduced into the Heartswind lineage at about 1750 b.S. One hundred years later, it would be used by his great-grandson Nelderk Heartswind, a soldier defending Voldar. Unfourtantely, while the armor was able to withstand the heat of dragon-fire, Nelderk was not. The armor remained in the Heartswind line, exceptions being in 501 where a cowardly human stole the armor to protect himself during the siege of Milkengrad. He died when an arrow, not being able to penetrate the armor, sailed over it, catching him in the neck. It was found and later returned. In 315 b.S., Meleri Heartswind lost the armor to a band of sewer thieves. It was returned by Dygan Heartswind in 304 b.S., who used it for 14 years until his disappearence.

This armor was meant to function as a set, as it's history of costing the carrier his or her life when it was not dictates. Along with Dygan, the armor's location for the past two millenia are unknown.

“For a man to be a leader, his people must have faith in him. For people to have faith in a leader, he must prove he is worthy of it. To prove that he is worthy, he must have faith in himself to do so.”-Dygan Heartswind

Hello everyone!

Hello all! It's been a minute since I poked my nose in here. Can't remember if I ever did anything useful.

Ah, too bad that internet is so restricted in China, Ferra. Can't be much fun surfing the web that way if Big Brother's watching you... Hope you enjoy your stay nevertheless!

Hi, dear Arti and other developers!

This year I am in China and cannot use any Google services including YouTube. For this reason I stopped uploading new Nepris videos. I can also not read any comments there.

It just crossed my mind that this information might be useful to you.

Cheers
