455 Fit For A King

 They reached Andre's forge in a few moments. Dave's heartbeat raced as his expectations for the set were high. Andre was described as the best smith in the world of Conquest, and his service to the Undead Legion had led the legionnaires to many grand victories.

When Dave entered the forge, it took him a while to recognize the smith.

Andre, the buff giant of a man, was a husk of his former self. His brawny arms had turned slim, almost skin on bone, the meat on his face was no more and one could clearly see the outline of his teeth on his cheeks.

His body seemed like it was sucked dry of everything but bones and skin, yet the smith was laughing and smiling.

"Holy shit man, what happened to you?" Dave asked as he approached the smith.

"Oh, this? Nevermind that, it's just a little side effect for making this beauty," Andre didn't seem to care much for his image change and pointed ahead.

On the table in front of Dave was an armor set neatly dusted, cleaned, and shining.

It was a mix of black and dark gold, a chest piece with skull design in the center, and pauldrons in the same style. It had an extension of chain mail that covered the groin area and reached just above the knees.

The leg-piece was made of solid metal with the same dark-gold engravings. The knees were adorned by two glaring skulls that had pointy horns. Dave was dying to find out how deadly a knee blow could be with those things.

The gloves were beautiful, made from little pieces of scale-mail that ended in pointy small claws. They also had small golden skulls for the knuckles. The boots were heavy, their metal dark, yet when Dave approached them, he noticed that they had a small piece of leather contouring the boot's sole. He was unsure of its purpose, so he was going to ask Andre.

The boots also had a skull design on the back.

The last piece Dave could see on the table was the helmet. Or in this case, a battle-crown.

It was a golden crown that had five pointed ridges that surrounded the head. Then large cheek-guards that extended from the side, leaving the face open.

Dave was a bit bummed, even if the crown looked magnificent, technically it didn't offer as much protection as did his Doom Knight Helmet from what he could see. The Doom Knight helmet had a T-visor that gave him more protection from arrows.

"How do you find this?" Andre asked, eager to hear Dave's opinion on his latest masterpiece.

"Looks great, just need to try it... oh, isn't it missing a piece?" Dave asked.

"Missing a piece?" Andre mumbled but quickly took another look, "It's all there!"

"But where's the cape?!"

"Hah! Try the set first, you'll see later."

Dave nodded and began equipping the armor. It took him a little while before everything was done and then he turned to Andre and said, "How do I look?"

Andre took a step back and knelt, "Your Majesty!"

Dave turned, thinking that the Undead King had arrived, but there was no one behind him.

"Stand up, why are you kneeling man," Dave wasn't used to this kind of treatment.

"As you command!" Andre stood back up.

"This is damn good stuff, but I still am missing a cape."

The smith looked at him with somewhat mixed feelings. He had slaved away to restore this beauty and even improve on it, yet the biggest concern of the Draugr in front of him seemed to be a missing cape... "Touch your pauldrons," Andre spoke after a moment.

Dave did as he was told, and a thin film of shadows materialized behind him. The cape was a part of the chest piece.

"Damn, that looks great," Dave praised.

Whenever he moved, the shadow cape moved along with him, like it was a living fabric.

Dave began inspecting the armor.

Dave inspected the passive Skill given by the full set.

[Doomsday], the simple fact of existing within any area gives your foes the feeling of being pressed by an inevitable end and makes them hesitate. All enemies will suffer from an action delay of 0.1 seconds. While the user will have an increased reaction time of 0.1 seconds.

Dave frowned. Then he read the description a second time to make sure he saw correctly. Since nothing had changed he broke out in laughter, "I can't believe it, the full set makes other people lag, HAHAHAH!"

Andre was looking at Dave like he had lost his mind, but he was wise enough to keep any comments about his king-to-be to himself.

"Right, time to check up on those stats, it's been a while now," Dave was gleefully opening up his Status Screen.

"Damn, I look like a Regional Boss already." Dave laughed, the armor was amazing, its bonuses were even more so.

"Andre, I can't thank you enough for this thing!"

"No need for lip service. You can thank me by leading us to victory while you wear it, my lord. I have done all I could do to make the armor. Now it's up to you to make the world fear it. Lord, I shall go and recuperate. I cannot work while I am looking like this. Lord Dagla should hopefully have something to restore me back."

Dave nodded, he was sad that the armor took its toll on Andre, but seeing how amazing it was, Dave didn't doubt that the smith ever regretted hammering it.

"Okay, the armor is done, now I guess it's time I go and check that Abyssal Knight upgrade."
