||A large Dog named Baran. The Dog has become especially attached to the team and will obey its handler . If left to his own devices Baran will follow the group, and will defend them if the party is seriously attacked or injured. The dog holds a special hatred for goblins and will attack them on sight.
This prototype suit of fine light mesh mail sewn between layers of padded black silk to suppress any noise it might make whilst the wearer moves. It comes complete with a cowl to cover the head and cheeks of the animal, without impeding ears or bite ability.
The armour is enchanted with two combined spells to enhance its use in covert operations; Toughen and Unburden. The armour provides 4 AP but has no associated Strike Rank or movement penalties.
The armour has 2 side pouches that are enchanted with Unburden in order to lighten the load of anything contained within them. Whilst it does not provide any additional storage space, it does permit up to 10 ENC of equipment to be carried as if weightless, if its bulk can be fitted inside.
The harness also has a lifting/ carry handle to get the dog over objects. Also has drag handles on sides so wounded team members can be dragged to cover.
Build into the harness is a fragment taken from the handlers omnilens. this allows the handler to perceive the area just ahead of the dog, effectively 'seeing' what the dog sees. Simple orders can be issued to the dog via the lens too. When not in use the lens folds down and is housed in the harness in a simple concealed pouch. When active the lens is positioned to 'see' over the dogs shoulder, granting forward view , only partially blocked by the dogs head/ears.
