Skyrim Break

Hey guys, sorry to disappoint, but I'm gonna take a little break from my irregular posting schedule.

School's started, but that's not really an issue. It's my last semester and I'm taking easy classes. I just gotta get a job and pass, in that order.

I have two out of three more Rohan outfits almost ready to go. I'm just missing one piece for each--some Dunland quest gloves that share the appearance of the ToO gloves Lesgaim and a certain cloak that I won't name. For the gloves, I've exhausted the quests that drop those on both Argendauss and Rechart. Metaxas is getting very close to the Bonevales, at 62, so I intend to get them that way. If I had raided more these past two weeks, I might have been able to snag Lesgaim, since all our burgs/hunters have it. Frustratingly enough, I've used these gloves before. I just threw them away or something. The cloak, I'll acquire on Metaxas as well.

Rohirric Warden: Skirmisher

Wardens are versatile fighters capable of holding the line in melee as well as dispatching enemies from range. Here, the Warden Rechart is the embodiment of the javelin discipline of Wardens. Fighting as a mounted skirmisher, Rechart casts javelins at foes as he weaves across the battlefield on his nimble, light horse. Only when his enemies are wounded does he charge in for the kill.

Upcoming Series


I have an idea for an outfit series that I will show here on Plate Metal Jacket during the rest of the time preceding the launch of Riders of Rohan. I want to clad my three highest level characters Argendauss (CPT), Rechart (WDN), and Metaxas (LM) in a green Rohirric theme, with some intention to make them look good on the only (future) warhorse cosmetic I currently have:  the Steed of the Eastemnet.

I have some sillyl photos. Since I"m drunk, now's a good a time as any to show you them. Typing interesting words is usually hard, but I feel really good at it right now.

Here are some silly screenshot's I've amassed in the past several weeks.

(later EDIT: I'm not going to change this, I think it's funny and I hope you do to.

Dog of War

The basic idea for this outfit is something I've been wanting to do for a long time--combine OD heavy armor pieces into something unique. In fact, the vision I had for this outfit is similar to the one I had for the Raid Ready series, except this armor is dyeable.

Ruin Warden

I have a very sparse backstory for my race of man characters, all with the surname Donderrion (which is a bastardization of a minor ASoIaF character's surname). To paraphrase the backstory as I described it to Frey:
The Donderrions are a clan of Dale men who traversed the Misty Mountains to settle in Eriador after Smaug razed Dale and claimed the Lonely Mountain as his lair. The Donderrions integrated with the DĂșnedain, and now Argendauss, Rechart, Metaxas and their clan fight to restore an ancient kingdom that is not theirs by heritage, but by choice.
