Intimidation. It’s your main form of weaponry while facing the heroes, because it gives you full control. When your enemies fear you, they are more likely to make fatal mistakes.

Your Dark Drake Armour is as dark as your intentions, hardened by the evil magic your subjects provide. As you withdraw your sword, sizing up the quivering soldier who feels brave enough to stand against you, you begin to laugh. This will be a very brief fight--if you can even call it that. The little man looks barely strong enough to hold up his hammer.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Neck Plate Dark Drake is a gorget designed to sit around the neck and give additional protection to the vitals of throat and thorax. An elongated front piece and shorter back piece are decorated with rivets, and can be attached to a breast and backplate using its sturdy top-grain leather straps. Although the armour is designed to match Epic Armoury’s ‘Dark Drake’ set, it is fully interchangeable with other Epic Armoury armours in order to fully customize your character’s look.

Secure the Neck Plate Dark Drake by tightening the leather straps across the shoulders, adjusting so that the armour sits comfortably around the neck. Made of 1 mm thick galvanized mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in sizes Small and Medium/Large/X-Large.

HISTORY

  • Also referred to as a gorget, which means throat
  • Early versions were typically worn under the breastplate and backplate to support the weight of the heavier plate armour
