Guys, I want to make a set of items based on materials made out of animals. I need six kinds of such materials and so far I came up with:
I need another one - what could it be?
I like feathers. If you're making a set of items it would be the extremely very light but high magic/manoeuvrability gear. Similarly you could have silk armour, woven from threads of giant spider silk. That would be like mithral in that it's extremely light but also exceedingly strong.
You could also go with wood maybe. I know it's not an animal part, but treants maybe?
It's very flexible and strong, and it can be thin in strands.
If you were using scales, chitin, or bone it would be useful for stringing together individual plates. Kind of like sewing.
I mean, you can't make armour out of chitin either, it's far too weak unless it's so large it's also unwieldy.
You could string together feathers to make a cloak, hat, or shirt I guess.
Silk is probably the better option, and it's kind of interesting as it would look like normal clothing until someone tried to cut it and found it was extremely tough. It's also not super far fetched in a world with giant spiders, because people have already attempted to make garments out of spider silk.
