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 picking up your Ork Waanaz Shield.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Ork Waanaz Shield is a rustic latex shield designed to be a part of the Orc collection. This shield is hand painted and modeled to look like planks of wood that have been fit together using rope and heavy bolts, giving it a rough look you expect from orc goods. Square shaped, it is 80 cm wide and tall.

Wear this Ork Waanaz Shield left-handed with the use of two leather arm straps on the back, secured through hard EVA foam for a reliable and solid grip made to last. Feel confident that this latex shield will withstand the continued abuse of a LARP with regular latex maintenance.

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
