Happy Title Week! The awesome Ivy of The Ivy and I are interpreting in-game titles every day this week, so be sure to check her blog to see what she’s doing!
Today, we’re both fiddling with “Foe of Night,” a slayer deed in the North Downs. The hero who attains this title has, as the deed text says, “returned many of [the Dead] to the peace of the grave.” Of all the titles Ivy and I will explore this week, this is the one most connected (in my opinion, at least) to LotR lore, and so I wanted to create something really special.
The piece I chose for inspiration was, of all things, a Moria light armour barter item, the Hat of the Stone-student. It’s just so medieval-looking, so serene and lovely, and it gave my chosen model a sort of gravity that suited the deed. Dyed gold, it reminded me of warm climates and sunshine, and so that’s where I began.
This all led me down an ornate path of gold and mail (with the chestpiece Saets-crus heavily featured), and I’m actually really pleased.
Tomorrow, we get to do the awesome Servant of Process title. Go check out Ivy!
