In a society as militarized as that of the Dweghom, a need arises to distinguish those who are proficient in the art of war, thus capable of calling themselves warriors, from those who are truly gifted. The Thanes are the latter. Individually recognized by their Raegh for valor and prowess on the field of battle, each Thane is armed and equipped with the best weaponry a Hold’s forges can produce.
Unlike the undoubtedly fine weapon of the warriors, each of the arms and armor that the Hold Thanes bear has been personally crafted by a member of the Tempered marking them to stand amongst the Hold’s elite forces. Capable of weathering the heaviest blows and cutting through the finest chain, these weapons make the Thanes deadly opponents, equally proficient on the attack as in defense.
