I have a problem. Not a bad problem, but more of a … quandary? A fashion quandary. Most of my characters have “signature” looks. Coin stands out with long red hair and bright blue dragonscale. Mawry has her commando outfit. Knicker Tan has her giant axes and starter rags. etc.
For years, Chelena Armstrong (the World’s Strongest Halfling) has been wearing Deneith Heavy Chain (and later, Epic Deneith Heavy Chain) and that has been her look. But the look has worn on me; I no longer find it as fierce as I once did, especially since it became an armor kit, and later, part of the random loot-gen choices.
It is not bad. It is just not that great either. Not anymore.
I’ve been collecting armors, trying to find one that is a fitting replacement. And I have! Several. So many that I need another opinion. Or a couple hundred other opinions. Let’s have a vote! Are any of these worthy of becoming Chelena’s signature look?
Armor #1 Deneith Heavy Chain
Armor #2 Blue on Bronze
Armor #3 Pink on Darkened Steel
Armor #4 Purple on Bronze
Armor #5 Purple on Steel
Armor #6 Scales of Surety
I would have just adopted the Scales of Surety without even needing a vote – very colorful, different, and attractive – except they have a flaw, one that I fear would grow on me as time passes: the neck. When you wear this armor, it puts rust-red scales on your neck all the way up to the hairline. A goofy sort of neck tattoo. On a character with hair, or a helmet, it likely would not matter. But on Chelena it does. Check out the image at the top of this article if you are curious.
But I digress. Time to vote.
If you voted for choice 7, I’d love to hear your ideas on what she should look to wear instead! Fill me in! Comment away!
