The Shievren

By:

Then all of a sudden, the victim gets convulsions and seizures, eyes bulging and mouth foaming.

Within the southern empire, there is a rumour. Those rumours tell of mysterious deaths, the corpses bloated and bruised. Witnesses to these deaths tell of unsuspecting victims engaged in normal, everyday activities. Then all of a sudden, the victim gets convulsions and seizures, eyes bulging and mouth foaming. Strangely only the wealthy and powerful ever gets this rare disease.

These deaths are the workings of the Shievren, a witches coven based in the coniferous forest known as the Nebelwald. The witches are approached through the intermediary agent “Grey Dog” in the city of Ur-Kanesh. The witches always require something from the victim, hair, blood and the like. The sages of Yinos believe that these are sewn into their strange puppets and boiled in small ceramic pots they call the Foetherii.

One thing you must realise is that there is no such thing as pure iron/steel these days. Iron/steel isn't nearly as strong now as it was in medieval times. However, with that said, iron in early medieval times was so soft you could hack right through a helm with a sword and leave a nice lil mark on the skull (depending on the grade of iron used on the sword and the helm, ofcaurse). After many hundreds of years of fine tuning, however, the only use the sword had was to puncture the plate. That was very difficult, however, since the grade of steel was so hard... only blunt instruments and weighted axes had any use against plate armor in later medieval times. Makes me wonder why rapiers were so popular then and why less people wore plate (Other than it's obsene costs... a nice suit of armor would cost as much as a nice lexus does now... and a kings suit would be as much as a rols royce).
