[Coldforged]Equipment and miscellaneous
« on: August 03, 2005, 11:45:57 AM »
The technical information presented here has been scavenged off the web. This includes weapon facts, which has been edited, cut and pasted and made to fit. Chrome has been added by yours truly, but websites like wikipedia, myArmoury, Sword Forum and so forth have been helpful.

Here I will post explanation for ordinary equipment, weapons, potions, armour, adventuring gear, taverna / inn menus, clothing, spices, silk, gems, art, plants, cosmetics and so forth. I enjoy creating such stuff and will present a number of facts about everything including (but not limited to):
Item name
Relative cost (Production area, other area, far away area)
Available in: (list of nations)
Item weight
Item description
Notes

I do not expect this thread to be particularly exciting, but it is one of those things that needs to be done. In addition, when I have read professional material, I have often missed a properly fleshed out equipment list and will therefore be very verbose whenever I post here. Perhaps exceedingly so :)

Cost is given in 1 currency, the Kingdom currency. For different currencies use the following list (Currency kept deliberately simple).

Kingdom Crowns-Imperial Sovereigns-Acaian Guilders:
2 Iron Triangulasr = 2 Copper Sovereigns = 1 Silver Pellet
1 Silver Crown = 10 Iron Triangulars
1 Silver Crown = 1 Silver Sovereign = 1 Silver Guilder
1 Gold Crown = 10 Silver Crowns
1 Gold Crown = 1 Gold Sovereign = 1 Gold Guilder

Silmarite Longsword

Relative Cost: In Silmar: 20 Gold Crowns, Border areas: 25 Gold Crowns, Far away: 30 Gold Crowns
Available in: Silmar, Ardamien, The Northlands, Acaian Islands,  The Conquered Lands (as contraband)
Item weight: Between 1.2 and 1.8 kg (2.6 to 4.0 lb)
Item length: Around 1.1 m (3 ft 7 in)
Item description: These single handed weapons of war are straight double edged blades used for hacking, but the plate armour in use has required the sword to become pointed for thrusting at the tip. These blades have deep fullers* running their length and a thick disc shaped pommel is often attached 'on-edge' to the bottom of the iron hilt. In addition the blades are diamond or hexagonal in cross section to keep the strength for thrusting.The actual size and weight of a long-sword depend on personal preference or build of the wielder and varies tremendously.

*A Fuller is a rounded or beveled groove on the flat side of a blade, such as a sword, knife, or bayonet. Although 19th century romantic fancy referred to them as "blood grooves", their purpose is to lighten the blade, rather than to allow blood to flow from a stabbed person.

Notes: Each smith has his own mark on the blade, but weapons forged in the city of Therben always has a stylized T-rune in addition to the smith's mark. The Therben blades are legendary for their durability and strength and demand an up to 10% higher cost than regular blades. Silmarite Longswords with the extremely durable Steel-Oorklse alloy demand twice the basic cost and then the 10% extra if it has been made in Therben.

Silmarite Arming Sword

Relative Cost: In Silmar: 18 Gold Crowns, Border areas: 22 Gold Crowns, Far away: 26 Gold Crowns
Available in: Silmar, Ardamien, The Northlands, Acaian Islands,  The Conquered Lands (as contraband)
Item weight: Between 1.0 and 1.6 kg (2.2 to 3.5 lb)
Item length: Around 1m (3'4") with 80 cm (2'8") blade
Item description: These single handed weapons of war are side swords often carried by Silmarite Knights in addition to the longsword. They often have an ornate hilt and ricasso, and a new technique of placing one's finger on the ricasso for the grip has lead to the production of hilts including a guard for the finger.It can be used for both cutting and thrusting.

Notes: Each smith has his own mark on the blade, but weapons forged in the city of Therben always has a stylized T-rune in addition to the smith's mark. The Therben blades are legendary for their durability and strength and demand an up to 10% higher cost than regular blades. Silmarite Arming Swords with the extremely durable Steel-Oorklse alloy demand twice the basic cost and then the 10% extra if it has been made in Therben.

Imperial Shamshir
(Also known as Imperial Thin Bladed Scimitar)

Relative Cost: Within The Empire: 18 Gold Crowns, Border areas: 22 Gold Crowns, Far away: 26 Gold Crowns
Available in: The Imperial Provinces, Valkarhoth, Acaian Islands, Ardamien (As loot of war)

Item weight: Between 0.8 and 1.2 kg (1.8 to 2.6 lb)
Item length: Around 1m (3'3") with 80 cm (2'8") blade
Item description: These single-edged blades has a backedge at the tip and a curve that is considered radical for a sword: 15 to 30 degrees from tip to tip. The shamshir features a slim blade that has almost no taper until the very tip: The blade is widest where it joins the hilt, from where it tapers, both in width and in thickness, towards the tip, with the degree of taper being greatest distally. These swords are most often worn within scabbards, suspended horizontally to diagonally and edge down, at the wearer's left side. Though the deeply curved blades are clearly adapted for the draw cut at considerable expense to the potential for thrusting use (due to the the drastic curvature of blade), these swords are known to have been carried by dismounted as well as mounted warriors. Shamshirs are usually regarded as being optimized for mounted combat at close quarters. There is no pommel and it is not quilloned, with a very small handguard. The blade is attached by a flat slab tang with rivets to the scale grip. A shamshir is a one-handled single-bladed sword.

Notes: The blades and hilts of the shamshir are often very ornate and features carvings or gilding. Shamshir blades will often include one or more of the following inscriptions: the maker's name, the owner's name, a dedication to a ruler and talismanic devices. There is much honour in the creation of a Shamshir and good smiths receive great status within society and are sometimes invited to dine with the local lords of the Empire. Ownership of a fine Shamshir created by one of the great smiths is a source of much pride and bragging within the Empire.

Imperial Kilij
(Also known as Imperial Large Bladed Scimitar)

Relative Cost: Within The Empire: 18 Gold Crowns, Border areas: 22 Gold Crowns, Far away: 26 Gold Crowns
Available in: The Imperial Provinces, Valkarhoth, Acaian Islands, Ardamien (As loot of war)

Item weight: Between 0.9 and 1.1 kg (2.0 to 2.5 lb)
Item length: Around 1m (3'2") with about 80 cm (2'8") blade
length of blade - 32 in
blade curvature - 6-9 in
yelman length - 10 in (1/3 of the blade)
Item description: This is a long blade with a gentle curve slightly more noticeable in the distal half. The width of the blade stays thin (with a slight taper) up until the last 30% of its length, at which point it flares deeper. This distinctive flaring tip is called a "yelman" which greatly adds to the cutting power of the sword. In addition to the flared tip, these blades have a distinct "T-shaped" cross section to the back of the blade. This allows even greater strength and hence greater ability to cause grievous wounds when cleaving. It isn't designed for thrusting and is a purely slashing weapon. Though it is often a very wide blade, it is also very thin which explains its relatively low weight.

Notes: The blades and hilts of the kilij are often somewhat ornate and features carvings or gilding. Kilij blades will often include the maker's name and sometimes the owner's name.
