Chitin greaves

Constructed from the exoskeleton of a Horkval, the chitin greaves are simple, if not ingenious, in their design. Comprised of two plates of the insectoid race's natural body armour, the greaves are designed to fit firmly over the calf and thigh of the wearer. The two sections are held together by a set of preserved tendons threaded between them. The tendons simultaneously hold the greaves taunt yet add a touch of bounce. When worn, these greaves grant their wearer the ability to leap like a Horkval. As with many other artefacts, the greaves may be purchased from Merentesh's artefact shop in Delos.
