So I have been thinking about the armament of the men of Dorwinion and the faction as a whole. I have come to the conclusion in my thoughts that Dorwinion is:
1: Really wealthy from the wine trade.
2: their ordinary guards equipment is subpar.
This doesnt make sense to me, they may not be a martial culture/people, but they have all this money that they at least could use on some fancy armor for when the various lords go to visit one another or other buisness partners to flaunt their wealth.
Who is most impressive Vintner Lord Billy with his schmucks in what appears to be leather or Vintner Lord Rodney with his "knights" in shining gilded plate, fancy cloaks and weapons?
I therefor propose that the men of Dorwinion get a new fancy armor made using the normal cafting recipes with iron and that this armor be the equal of gondorian armor. This also means that we must change the recipe for the current armor worn by the Vintner Guards, this could be changed to the rohirric recipe of mixed leather and iron.i
Perhaps also a weapons set to match this new fancy armor, if thats the case I believe it would contain a sword, a crossbow, a lance and a pike.
Ofcourse we will also need a new npc to wear this armor. These could be called Vintner Knights, they would have a mounted version. But I dont know if they should have a crossbow version, be able to switch between crossbows and a mellee weapon or just be mellee.
That concludes my ideas. What do you think?
