Spirit Turtle ArcEdit
Slave Supremacy ArcEdit
Revisited by Naofumi, Elhart explains that the shields he requested last time are not ready. Although he has made a couple of samples, they are not refined enough to be considered a shield. The first is far too heavy to be useful and the second lacks sturdiness. The complications are due to the fact that almost all of the Spirit Turtle materials have a bad affinity with the Air Wake feature, feature that's supposed to make heavy armor lighter. Despite those problems he did finish making the Speckle Rapier and gives it to Naofumi. c148
