Armor

Armor:

Whether you have decided to use Ascending or Descending Armor Class(AC), the rules are similar and fairly easy to follow. Regardless of the version of AC you use, every character starts with a base AC roll of 3d6.

Ascending AC:

10 + Armor worn value = AC

For instance with Basic Leather Armor:

10 result + 2 = 12 AC roll

Descending AC:

10 – Armor worn value = AC

For instance with Basic Leather Armor:

10 result – 2 = 8

 A Recruit’s set of armor is provided to the starting adventurer, but it is advised the player work to upgrade their gear to better keep up with the difficulty of the game. An armor set is a collection of the individual armor pieces a character can wear, but comes at a higher cost for the set.

Armor is broken out into their respective tables as one of the following slots: Head, Chest, Legs, Hands and Feet. These slots are in addition to your weapon and, if you can wield one, shield. Every class begins with a Basic set of armor free of charge, upgrades are up to the players to buy so long as they meet the required level to wear that piece of armor.  Of course, if the GM is feeling generous, then pieces of equipment can always be found throughout the world!
