Description

While tattoos are considered primitive forms of magical foci by most other cultures, they have a long and rich tradition amongst islander and heartlander orcs alike, especially amongst practitioners of magic. The obvious downside to tattoos, of course, is that one can't easily swap them out.

The easiest alternative is to paint the patterns on shields; symbols to ward off bad luck, protect one from hostile magic or let a weapon strike true were common. Paints are set upon leather, which is then stretched out over wood and set in place with bronze bindings.
