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.
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.
A small forearm buckler shield suitable for children or to simply bat away an incoming weapon.
The monstrous undead with a hammer the size of your head has you in his sights, and you’ve found yourself standing without an ally. Your usual tactic involves skirting around the battle, picking your fights strategically. Now there is no time.
You duck beneath the first blow, keeping your RFB Buckler between the hammer and your soft body. You’re faster than the rotting monstrosity, but in your desperation you trip and roll. Again the hammer falls, and you raise up your RFB Buckler to catch the force. Your small shield holds, buying time while your friends finally come to your aid.
Epic Armoury’s RFB Buckler is a small, versatile latex shield inspired by skilled swordsmen through history. This 36 cm round buckler has a neutral design befitting many character types, sculpted and painted to look like wood rimmed with brilliant, shiny iron.
Wear this RFB Buckler left-handed with the use of two canvas 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.
Originally developed for Bucellarii, personal armies of rich landowners in the late Roman Empire
