Spiffy!  And pretty wicked looking as well.


Hmm...  On a purely theoretical level, I wonder what "real" drow armor would be made of.  Chitin?  What with the giant spiders and all, and the entire spider queen thing.  Some sort of metal crafted by enslaved duergar?  Heh, pretty pointless line of thought I suppose, but still interesting to think about.

LOL, I love the ponder on such things. I know they have a special metal all thier own (adamantite) but it get weak in sunlight. I would think clacker hides for the armor, lol.

Ooh, clackers, I hadn't thought of them.  Yeah, I'd imagine they'd make pretty good armor.  Heh, of course, we'll never know, but it's fun to imagine :)

LOL, Indeed it is. I don't know if you saw the back of that harness but it now has arachnid legs coming off the back.

Just looked at it now, really spiffy work!  How do they maintain their rigidity?  Or are they flexible?

They are water hardened and then sewn together. They are still a little flexible to make it safe to walk through crowds.

Ah, neat.  Hmm, question, is there any functional difference between water or wax hardened leather?

Wax hardening is messy but is permanent and doesn't require sealing. It is the old school method and still works. I am not that skilled in that  method. I prefer water hardening but I have to use a modern day sealer so that it will retain its shape if it gets wet.

I like the detailing on the ring too...it's pretty and elegant which speaks of the elven elegance compared to the darker, harsh shapes of the twisted dark elven influence...dangerous and deadly..but they're still elves...

So eloquently put! I wish I had metal working skills to make a custom ring with drow runes on it. Maybe a spell of protection to enhance the light armor.
