Curved ram horns and a glowering face adorn this helm of storm-dark iron. Its fearsome snow-wreathed visage inspired the Dunmer's epithet for invading Nords - "ice demons".
Sing of the landfall, O Kyne,
Shaper of Storms and Mother of Man.
Sing of those doom-driven souls from far-flung Atmora.
- Dragon-Poet Wuthfomiir, The Fragmented Ul-Tey, Song 1
Nordic Iron Cuirass
Cuirass - Heavy Armor
Only a powerful heart can bear the weight of this massy star-iron cuirass. Its necklace of wolf fangs and carved bronze talisman betray druidic influences.
In the frozen Elder Wood, the sun had ceased to move.
Sundered by war, banished from time,
Its children, the Atmorans, sought salvation in the sea.
- Dragon-Poet Wuthfomiir, The Fragmented Ul-Tey, Song 3
Nordic Iron Gauntlets
Gauntlets - Heavy Armor
Gloves from the skin of Bear-guiser-Tsun clasped in spiked bracers the color of mountain stone. These gauntlets can parry a blade or knock the teeth out of a troll.
To Sky's Rim did Ysgramor lead his fleet.
And when first he beheld the far land's blazing sun,
His joyful tears fell as wild waves upon the shore.
- Dragon-Poet Wuthfomiir, The Fragmented Ul-Tey, Song 4
Nordic Iron Boots
Boots - Heavy Armor
These spiked iron boots are as useful for shattering solid mountain ice as they are for executing downed opponents. In the heat of battle, Nord berserkers are feared most not for their brawn or bravery, but for their lack of mercy.
On Tearful Night fell elves with whetted ice.
By root and stem they rended Sons of Kyne,
But in bloodied hearts bloomed hateful embers.
- Dragon-Poet Wuthfomiir, The Fragmented Ul-Tey, Song 6
Nordic Iron Pauldrons
Pauldrons - Heavy Armor
An elk-fur cloak thick enough to repel Skyrim's deadly blizzards and vicious ice wraiths. Its knotted and tangled cords ripple, as though moved by the cutting winds that precede a storm.
In sunless abyss of deepest winter,
Ysgramor's Companions set the land ablaze.
Vengeance fed hungry flames in once-noble breasts.
- Dragon-Poet Wuthfomiir, The Fragmented Ul-Tey, Song 9
Nordic Iron Greaves
Greaves - Heavy Armor
These plate and mail greaves turn your stride into a rumbling, unrelenting wind. Over years of brutal raids, Vvardenfell's people have come to understand that distant marching thunder precedes a torrent of blood, iron, and northern madmen.
On far horizons did fledgling Man seek peace.
Yet, reborn, they painted scarlet the Sky's Rim,
And all Tamriel trembled at the war-wrought desolation.
- Dragon-Poet Wuthfomiir, The Fragmented Ul-Tey, Song 10
