Long Description

This is a pair of steel greaves... a pair of metal plates that strap over the lower legs. They are highly ornate, and tooled with a variety of intricate curves and angles. These greaves are provided for those who have attained the rank of Knighthood in the city of Genua, but are largely honourific - they are meant for ceremonial occasions and not particularly for the thrust and parry of a genuine battle. There is an eagle grasping a rose in its claws on the ankle.

It appears to have something written on it.

Written in highly ornate script:

Whoso wears this hallowed armour is recognised as a member of the Holy Order of the Knights of Genua.

Appraises As

The pair of ornate metal greaves is about a foot and a half long and about six inches wide. It is made of steel and could be worn as armour.


Knights in Genua.
