The Messenger

Being renowned veteran of the War of Wrath against Morgoth, who has seen many battles since he was young at the end of the First Age, Manequithir was considering setting off for his journey to the Grey Havens. He was tired of battling over the centuries and lacked purpose in his life. After one of the battles, he realized it's information what wins the wars, and decided to become a messenger. Riding through Eriador and Rhovannion, he assures that the Free People know about dark forces' movement and cannot be caught unprepared.

Manequithir doesn't need a disguise - his horse, descending from the Mearas, is faster than any evil they've ever met. So the Messenger wears bright gold armour, so that all who see him feel hope when they spot him on the horizon. Just like blossoms of the sakura, he is the sign that not all is lost yet.

Do you like the outfit? Please let me know in the comments! :)

Chest: Breastplate of the West-tower, sienna dye (Skirmish classic barter - Annúminas heavy)
Legs: Leggings of the West-tower, sienna dye (Skirmish classic barter - Annúminas heavy)
Shoulders: War-captain's Shoulders, sienna dye (Skirmish classic barter - Helegrod heavy)
Hands: War-captain's Gloves, sienna dye (Skirmish classic barter - Helegrod heavy)
Feet: Rhydhid-lhopan, umber dye (Drop from Isengard instance cluster)
Back: Torm-clog, gold dye (Drop from Isengard instance cluster; also available as T7 crafted cloak)


  1. Great looking outfit supported by good story.

  2. Love those boots dyed umber. They work really well with this outfit. I like it :)

  3. On closer looking, just one note of caution. I'm worried he's going to lose an ear with those shoulder pads! I think less spiky ones would suit the rest of the outfit better. (I think it's the difference between fantasy armour and real armour. Most real armour tried to deflect blows and make them glance off, whereas spikes would catch the blow and make a huge bruise under the armour).

  4. thanks guys, and you are probably right Brrokk! i didn't think of the dangerous spikes, but now as I look especially at the last screenshot, it really looks like it could get awful because of them :)) however, a messenger doesn't fight a lot (as he has extremely swift horse, related to Gandalf's Shadowfax) and the spikes look good and dangerous while promenading in the majestic halls where he usually delivers the news *chuckle*

    ...so much for the excuses :D

  5. I need those shoulder guards >.< Absolutely beautiful outfit <3
