Armour of Strife – a treasure for fantasy

Loot-a-Day, Day 13: Ceremonial daggers, weapons and armour

Armour of Strife
This high quality muscle cuirass is completely silvered with some details picked out in gold. It is sized for a small humanoid.

For generations, halflings and goblins are squabbling over who made the cuirass and who wore it first. “First” being the key word, as since then the armour had frequently changed hands between heroes of the two people.

Why fantasy?
Because we could not decide between Warhamer Fantasy Roleplay and D&D. Warhammer Fantasy would top out on sheer absurdity (the thought alone of an Old World halfling wearing a muscle cuirass is easily up there with the likes of Giovanni Marmalodi to us). D&D on the other hand makes for easier implementation of the idea, especially as there are less established setting facts to work around.

Loot-a-Day is a month-long German blogging challenge by fellow German blogger Greifenklaue, who was inspired by ArtifactaDay which we ran last August as a counterpoint to RPGaDay in Germany. We followed up on this with two more marathons of daily content about artificial creatures and science-gone-too-far, respectively, and now Greifenklaue seeks to spread the format.
