Tales from Karickbridge
Rune-inscribed scale male
As well as being a +1 set of armour, this scale mail hauberk confers on the wearer a +5 MD on direct effect magic, i.e. spells where a MA vs. MD roll is made. Mind-based spells are not affected, nor is Evasion.
Just as many other professions require their apprentices and journeymen to produce a product showing off the skills they have learned, dwarven smiths have to produce a 'Meisterwerk' before they are awarded the title Master Craftsman.
Grimm Ironfist completed a set of runic armour as his Meisterwerk. This dwarf-sized suit of armour is inscribed with the Algiz rune, a rune of protection.
