Of Shadow and Flame
As with most crafts of dwarvish hands, prugmasks are each a unique work of masters’ hands. Their purpose is to protect the head and face during Dweorg Ringen matches, but no strict regulations dictate how large or cumbersome they may be. Different individuals’ fighting styles may see them opting for lighter masks which are of thinner padding and lighter metal to allow for increased mobility and visibility, while others prefer thicker armor, heedless of the weight. Prugmasks often feature aspects of the fighter’s clan and/or personality, and can be quite ornate.
