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
