Your prey is almost within range, tentative as she catches a whiff of something in the air. You have covered yourself in the dirt of the forest and smell more like pine than person, but the deer still seems uncertain.
She steps forward and you pull back the string on your loaded bow, peering down at her from beneath the leather of your Elven Head Band. This deer will feed you for the rest of the week, so you are careful as you take aim. You mustn’t miss your target if you are to eat.
With a sharp ‘thwap!’ your arrow hits its mark, clean and perfect. A painless end to a noble creature...and your dinner.
This bestselling Epic Armoury Elven Head Band is a slim decorative piece of head armour with a distinct elven feel.

At the temples it is fitted with cheek-pads closely covering the cheek and chin-bones, hovering a few centimetres before the mouth.
