War is all that you know. For your clan, war is a permanent state of being. Just as you need meat to sustain you and leather armour to protect your leathery green skin, war keeps your thirst for chaos and violence sated.

Your clan now gathers to prepare for the war against the goblins. The creatures used to be your allies, but in the last battle they became cowardly and ran. Now there is nothing more to be done than to hunt down every one of them and serve them over your fire.

You begin by putting on your Orc Brute Shoulder Armour.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Orc Brute Shoulder Armour is a sturdy and practical piece of armour designed to protect the shoulder while making you look intimidating. Made from chrome-tanned leather plates strapped together using tough leather, this shoulder guard has great structural strength to make it last a long time and resist deformation. Additionally, felt padding reinforces the armour against the skin to absorb blows. Tribal decorations enhance the look, featuring leather laced edges and brown accents riveted to the armour.

Secure the Orc Brute Shoulder Armour by tying the split-leather straps around the chest and arm. The style is orcish and natural, and is fully compatible with other Epic Armoury leather and metal armours, giving you the freedom to customize your costume.

Available in Black and Brown, and in One Size.

INSPIRATION

  • Earliest references to orcs are found in Old English and Anglo-Saxon sources, such as in Beowulf and in 16th century Italian folktales
  • The word itself stems from the Latin word Orcus, which was the name given to the Roman deity of the dead
  • J.R.R. Tolkien's 20th century The Lord of the Rings series describes orcs as brutish, aggressive beings with a taste for human flesh
  • Tolkien's writings influenced many role-playing games, and are now seen in such games as Dungeons and Dragons, Warhammer and Warcraft
