Phat Loot Phriday: Tectonic Plate

"So, what you're saying is that it's a German chestpiece?" Throgg asked.

Lolegolas shook his head. "No, that's Teutonic. Like Eric. No, this is a Tectonic Plate. You see, it's a clever pun."

"Because you can eat off it?"

"No, man," Lolegolas responded, pushing his aviator glasses further down his nose. "It's Tectonic Plate. Because, like, this giant earth dragon's got get its 'rawr smash' on. And when that happens, it's gonna drop earth stuff. And, like, so it's not just a plate. It's a Tectonic Plate, like an earthquake."

Throgg rested his chin in his hands. "They make these things so complicated. OK, then. How do I get it?"

"It's during a big elemental invasion. You might have heard."
