Let the Darkness Be Your Bulwark Against The Enemy. This phrase was oft used by the drow when teaching their apprentice assassins. However, it did very little to protect them from the blind warrior monks the humans eventually unleashed upon them. But the Drow learn and adapt. They know that the best things to steal from your enemies are first their ideas and then their tools.
LET DARKNESS BE YOUR BULWARK AGAINST THE ENEMY
Epic Armoury’s Drow shield is a large shield inspired by heater shields used for jousting in the 15th century. A hand painted black center with gold edges and a white heraldy mimics a traditional elven heraldry design. The rim is detailed to look like golde metal. While the design is simple, this Drow Shield is evocative of elven curvatures with its organic design and oppressive colour scheme.
Wear this Drow Shield left-handed with the use of three 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.
Designed to be the maximum allowable size under the Swordcraft rules set, this shield has the Epic Armoury tri-position grip to allow you to hold it no matter what style of shield bearer you need to be.
Curved upper left corner is called a bouche, which was historically done to serve as a rest for a jouster’s lance and to improve the knight’s view

In the dangerous tunnels of your home beneath ground, staying alive requires keeping all your senses on high alert. Your Dark Elf Ears are trained to pick up even the faintest of sounds in the darkness, your hands ready with your weapon should you need to defend yourself from some beast or being.
So, when you hear the silvery tongue call out to you, “Hello, friend,” you are not so quick to let down your guard. While the other dark elf approaching you is an old acquaintance, you also heard the crossbow bolt being slid into place--now hidden behind her back.
Epic Armoury’s Dark Elf Ears are a set of latex-prosthetic ears molded in a pointed shape, a common sigil of the mythological elf. Round points sweep back along the head, helping this particular pair of elf ears to stand apart from the more classic elven shape. The prosthetic adds 5 cm to the helix of the human ear, and are as smooth and curved as a dark elven ear should be. The ears are modelled to cover and form-fit over the outer ear, allowing for plenty of surface area in which to securely and safely glue the latex to the wearer’s skin.
The Dark Elf Ears prosthetics are made from thick 100% natural high-quality latex, making it strong and durable, ensuring long life and extended reuse. Application of this prosthetic is easy using Epic Effect Prosthetic Power Glue, Mastix Spirit Gum or other prosthetic adhesive.
The Package contains instructions in English.
These Dark Elf Ears come in black, but can easily be painted to match the style you desire using Epic Effects Make-Ups.
The dark crevices of society is your domain. In the safety of your lair you review the bounties you have collected, considering your next target. When night falls upon the land, you will emerge.
The cityfolk have come to fear you and the silence in which you strike. With your leather gear and Dark Elven Blade, you are able to maneuver in the shadows until your target is exactly where you want him. You are formidable. You are the assassin.
Epic Armoury’s Dark Elven Blade is a chopping short sword, forged in the cruel style of the dark elves. The sword is 65 cm long with a gently curved, single-edged 45 cm blade. The blade is handpainted to look like bleached bone with a matching clawed crossguard and pommel. The 12 cm oval handle is wrapped in split-leather for an improved grip. For extra control, a pistol ring has been fitted onto the crossguard.
The blade has a dark, vicious feel that will fit almost any dark character, whether your style is that of a dark elven warrior or exotic raider. Made from durable closed cell foam around a solid fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your battlefield kit.
