When a pack of wolves hunt down a deer herd, they will wisely pick a sick or weak animal and feed. They hunt, they kill, they eat. There is no carnage, no useless bloodshed. But shepherds know very well that this is not how wolves react faced with a defenseless herd of sheep. The helpless animals drive the predators mad and violent. They will slaughter far more than they need to eat and leave the carcasses in the sun to rot.
This savagery leaves the shepherd shocked and confused, but I understand these beasts, and I know why they feel so compelled to cull. It’s their visceral gut reaction to the violation of the natural order. It is ancient primal wisdom acting through them. I for one share their instinct. As they do with the sheep herds, I do the same with these vile human paddocks called cities.
I don’t recognize the humanity of these so-called civilized folks, the ones who built walls to hide themselves from the woods and the beasts, and cut themselves from the wilderness that birthed us all. When they lock their doors and gloat with their sense of superiority, I shall be the one who knocks and reminds them that the might of nature cannot be tamed.
This dark fantasy pauldron displays a set of foam spikes for an impressive and intimidating look that remains fully safe for LARP combat. With its aged finish and dark dye, it is an amazing leather armor for shadowy brutes, orc raiders, barbarian warriors, and savage warlords. As it is sold separately, it can be worn with a different pauldron for an asymmetrical look, or worn with a leather harness for a more lightly armored look that will suit cultists and pit fighters.
