Final Run:

Tourney-specific Releases

  • Available at Tartan Cloth - a soft lamb's wool tartan cloth threaded in plum and blue hues
  • Available at Kindred Garb - a soft lamb's wool plaid
Blended with lamb's wool and flax, the tartan fabric is incredibly soft and has a sky blue base. Horizontal and vertical setts of silver and plum hues face pinstripes of black and white alongside cobalt blue setts over an ebon-threaded pivot. Simple knots, bound by banded onyx, finish off the edges to create a short, thumb-thick fringe.
  • Available in Flypaper Designs - a silver dragon and black unicorn tattoo
a piece of dragon-inked flypaper
Twilight shades descend in gradient hues from plum to cobalt blue to create a background for a pair of combatants locked in battle. Silver scales, slashed and bleeding in areas, decorate the serpentine body of a dragon that twines about the muscular ebon form of a unicorn. Wings spread for balance, the larger beast appears to be taking as much damage from the hoof, horn, and teeth of his foe as he is giving. Unfurling beneath the piece is a thin ribbon emblazoned with words.
