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.
Your Knight’s Code is one of valor, truth, and courage. You are tasked with defending the innocent and the weak, and today your oath is being tested. Outside of town there has been a bandit attack on a merchant and his family, and it’s up to you to rescue them.
Your squire straps your Knight Shield tight onto your arm over the weight of your chainmail, and with a prayer to your God you and your small unit strike out onto the road. The sword upon your shield is a reminder that you are a weapon of justice.
Criminals be warned.
Epic Armoury’s Knight Shield is a large shield inspired by heater shields used for jousting in the 15th century. A hand painted green, white and gold striped face mimics a traditional heraldry design. The rim is detailed to look like metal with brass studs. While the design is simple, this Knight Shield is timeless and classic.
Wear this Knight 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.
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
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.
The Fleur Mace is aptly named. With its petal-like flanges and golden spearhead, it does remind you of a flower. However, you also know this flower has thorns.
In battle, you have used this mace to destroy your enemies. You’ve torn into cavalry and infantry alike thanks to its dangerous--but beautiful--design.
Epic Armoury’s Fleur Mace is an 88 cm one-handed mace with a decorative design. It features a large head with five hooked flanges and a pointed “crown,” sculpted and hand painted to look like real metal. The head is actually made of soft foam, reinforced with a harder foam core. It attaches to the shaft, hand painted and sculpted to look like matching steel reinforced by brass cuffs. The 17 cm long grip has been wrapped in suede leather for an ergonomic fit in the hand.
Made from durable closed cell foam around a solid 10 mm fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, your new LARP mace will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your Sovereign kit.
A traditional mace flange would have been designed to penetrate armour, but the hooked flange design would also make this great for grappling a knight from their horse
Maces were first designed to cause harm without penetrating armour due to the force of their blows
Commonly made of iron, but also occasionally copper and bronze
