Since 2001 the Forgotten Dreams Design-Studio (FDD), managed by Philipp Heidtkamp in Regensburg-Germany, produces LARP-Weapons, Fantasy costumes, props and scenery for Live Action Role Playing (LARP), Theatre, Film- and TV productions. In the beginning there was just the possibility to produce single pieces and custom-made Larpswords and Larpshields, but today FDD is able to offer eight different series of varying styles (kinds). Over the Years the Forgotten Dreams Design Studio advanced to be one of the biggest producers of foam weapons in the world. FDD foam weapons are made in Germany and can be found on countless events, medieval shops and Larp-shops, as well as wholesale and retail industries in Germany and are sold by a global network of Larp sellers. However, the Design Studio never lost it's touch and it's regard to the customer and the Gamer. Aside the series for retailers, each client has the possibility to own his individual and custom-made Larp-sword.
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. As a battle necromancer, your Imperial Shield serves as a focus in order to cast the most formidable spells. Your fingers wrap tightly around the shield’s handle, and the skull on its face grows hot as it fills with potent magic.
The Imperial Shield gives you the ability to wield more power, weaving together complex spells beyond your normal grasp. With the help of this focus, you are victorious--even over death.
Epic Armoury’s Imperial Shield is a semi-curved gothic latex shield inspired by a late 13th century kite shield. Hand painted and sculpted with careful detail, this shield features a studded metal rim and a laurel-crowned skull and banner on the shield’s face.
Wear this Imperial 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.
Also referred to as a “kite” shield, originally from the 10th-12th centuries
Made from non-splintering wood, such as alder, fir, poplar, or linden
Skull and laurel branch symbolizes victory over death
There are a few tricks you have learned in order to survive the post-apocalyptic wastelands--and the most important trick involves making weapons out of whatever you can find.
You crafted the Vibro Glaive from the assorted scraps you found on your travels, including some bronze and iron metal. It required some ingenuity and a lot of patience, but now you have a weapon that will slice straight through raiders and would-be thieves.
This bestselling Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is used for maintenance of Live Action Role Playing foam weapons and equipment covered with latex and/or varnish.
Directions for use:
Latex equipment must be coated with a thin layer of silicone at all times. This prevents the surfaces from drying out, and will prolong the lifespan of your latex equipment. Always check your latex equipment before and after each use. Spray the silicone directly onto your latex product and work it into the entire surface (avoiding leather handles) either with a piece of cloth or using a flat hand. If necessary, wipe off any excess with a dry cotton cloth. Always store your latex equipment in a dry and dark place.
