Background and Inspiration Edit
The Armos Weapons were added to the mod in version 5.4. They represent a blending of ideas from the Elder Scrolls, Zelda, and to a lesser extent Minecraft and Soul Calibur.
JKalenad had wanted to make stone weapons for a long time, but felt they wouldn't fit Skyrim well, because stone would be inherently weak. Taking inspiration from Stalhrim, he added the Armos and Armos Stone, making the Armos Weapons forged from enchanted stone, just as Stalhrim is enchanted ice. The weapons are intentionally tempered with Corundum Ore rather than ingots because they are part metal and part stone, and ore serves both natures of the weapons at once.
Their appearance is based on official artwork from Ocarina of Time and Link's equipment from his guest appearance in Soul Calibur II. The Armos Shield bears the most resemblance to these sources, and served to inspire the rest of the set. The weapons are retextured Stalhrim weapons other than the shield, which uses the same mesh as the Terminan, Sacred, Divine, and Goddess Shields.
The Armos Halberd was created more or less on a whim, after JKalenad realized the Stalhrim dagger model fit on the battleaxe model. The Halberd has a suitable niche: it serves as a bridge between the Battleaxe and Warhammer in terms of speed and damage, and rivals all other weapons in the set in terms of reach.
