Tribe Armor Concept: Dras Light Armor
+39

Good tidings, friends,

Last week's Kypiq Light Armor got many a cosplay enthusiast's heart thumping and others thinking seriously about life in the trees.

This week, as we anticipate the approach of The Eye, it makes sense to share some armor in one of the tribes devoted to the Two-Fold Queen: the Dras.


The Swamp is home to a variety of creatures with thick hides adapted for water exposure. This means that the Dras have sturdy, yet malleable leathers in ready supply.

It is not in the Drasean nature to parade about with gaudy ornamentation - a prideful trait the Janoa relish. Instead, the Dras prefer to dress drably and express their joie de vivre through deeds of compassion and selflessness. The dense foliage of their home biome further demands that their gear be smooth, lest it catch on everything as they slink through the swamp.

This concept sculpt helped to explore semi-rigid and tightly-bound, fitted armor. Unlike many other tribes, thick padding is eschewed in favor of sleeker forms. This isn't a problem because it is the Dras's preference to not engage in direct combat but, rather, to let the toxic hazards of the swamp fell their enemies without a fight.

Stay shiny,

Vye

Looks like a fencing helm :p

I hope janoan light armour is next as that wasn't shown during the faedin period.

As creepy as it would be too see armor like this splashed with mud and twigs pop out at your from the swamp I feel like the dampness and the swamp would make the leather soak up... like could just be a mechanic that is not being implemented though. just thinking. least it won't rust.

Part of maintenance would be keeping it oiled to repel moisture :D Or using hides that are best suited for it!

It seems odd not to protect the base of the neck. What kind of predators are going to be in the swap biome that wouldn't try to go for the base of the neck as a matter of instinct?

That helm is terrifying.


Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!

Hmm, that helmet looks scary. You guys are keeping the standard for armor high. This definitely makes some of us love Dras more.

I am still looking forward to armor with stone and paper : )
