Anybody ever notice how the Effigy Shield depicts Vamos (or a similar skeleton-like creature) wearing the Royal Helm?

Can't help but feel this whole rebellion to kill the Gods spoken about in the Effigy Shield description somehow links to the Server and its Primordial Serpent engraving, if not only because the Server's description changes when you turn it Chaos/Fire(?), which is performed by Vamos.

But yeah, just...thoughts?

I never actually took notice to that. Good find. Could you post a pic of the server because i never noticed the pic on that weapon either.

I don´t know why but it reminds me of Brain from Berserk.

I don´t know what it could be. I have never seen anything like it.

That's really cool, too bad that the shield is not very good, at least in my opinion.

It's got sweet ltg defense, but that's really it (though that would make it a good shield for fighting, say...GWYN!?)

I don't have a better picture, but you can see the engraving up the blade, a seeming eye toward the very tip, and those weird-droopy-head-things a little further back from the eye.

I forget the exact change in the weapon description when modified to a fire weapon...but it does change.

Anyone every try giving the Lordvessel to Vamos? :pirat:

The word Occult, "A frightful Occult energy" is changed to "A frightful Heretical energy".
