The first suits of winterborn warmail were crafted in Varushka in the early years of the Empire.

Empress Varkula wore a suit of this armour on campaign, and towards the end of her decades-long reign she tended to wear it even when she was not on a battlefield. Partly in honour of this warlike empress, and partly from considerations of practicality, this armour is popular with draughir from many nations, resulting in popular epithets such as Draughir Warplate, Dreadlord's Panoply and Hungerer's Heart.


  • Form: Heavy armour. Despite the name any heavy armour can be winterborn mail.
  • Effect: You gain three additional ranks of the endurance skill.
  • Materials: Crafting a suit of winterborn mail requires sixteen ingots of of orichalcum, nine ingots of weltsilver, nine ingots of ambergelt, seven ingots of green iron and seven measures of beggar's lye. It takes one month to make one of these items.

Virtueless dogs of the Varushkan wilds, filth that descends from the tree-line to threaten my Empire, look upon your enemy! For all your play-acting the terrors of the unknown night, you are lambs before my ravenous slaughter. I am your nightmare of rampant civilisation come to kill you without mercy or honour. I am the conqueror with the strength of nations come to drive you from your land. I am the fire that is fuelled by the hate of millions, and I declare this vale mine, this forest mine, these mountains mine, and this army mine to take them with!

Look upon your enemy, o mangy curs of Miekarova! There is more strength in my armour than in the best of your warriors!

- The Carrion Queen, Act 1, Scene 2
