Armour protects the body from force/physical and energy damage. Armour is constructed to surround the body or body part. All Armor is considered to be resistant (defends against killing attacks.)
In Avergene the materials used to make Armor are similar to Medieval times in our world. Cloth, Leather, Hides, Metal links, and Metal plates.
Armour breaks down over time from damage taken. See the armour table for the amount of BODY armour takes before it is worn out and needs to be repaired.
Armour has mass and needs to be maintained.
Armour is strapped to the body of the user making it inaccessible.
Armor cannot be layered with other armor to increase resistance. See Protecting your character from damage
