Royal Forge of Icewell Arms Set.12-Royal Field Plate ---------------------------- This is an introduction to crafting the field plate of the Coldain Royal Army. This armor is lightweight and excellent for any expedition on which battle may occur.
The following steps will walk you through the creation of this armor:
1. In order to begin, you must first obtain several blocks of Velium, which will be used to craft the sheets of metal used in making the armor.
2. Once you have obtained
the blocks of Velium, place one block in the forge. As it becomes more malleable, work the metal into a flat sheet. Once it is flat, pour some Coldain Velium Temper onto the sheet and fold it over on top of itself and hammer it flat once again.
3. Now, begin to work on
the Velium Rings that will link the pieces of armor together. To make a set of rings, place a large brick of Velium into the forge and heat it up a bit. Take a metal file and file off small pieces of metal, shaping them into a small circular shape. Cool them with Vial of Coldain Velium Temper to strengthen them.
4. Take a break from the hot forge and prepare to fashion the soft fur padding which will be placed on the inside of the armor. The fur will add some comfort and protection from the elements. The softest fur is found from Velium Hounds. Take a patch of their fur and sew it
into patterns that will fit inside the armor, using some Silver Thread to ensure a proper tensile strength.
4. The preparations are now complete. You can now begin to fashion the armor together. Use a Velium Smithy's Hammer to hammer the Folded Velium Sheets
into a Plate Mold. Once the sheet has been hammered into the mold, begin attaching the Velium Rings to the outer areas of the armor piece that will connect to other pieces. Once that has been completed, begin attaching the Soft Fur Padding to the insides of the armor piece.
For creating the Bracer and Boots you will need one Folded Velium Sheet. For the Vambraces, Gauntlets, and Helmet you will need two Folded Velium Sheets. For the Breastplate, and Greaves you will need three Folded Velium Sheets to fill the mold.
