pro5 Posted October 29, 2006 Share Posted October 29, 2006 I was suprised to find some "undocumented" AC modifiers in armor effects. Shouldn't these be in their description? To save space, I'll give only 2 examples of chain mail and splint mail (all other armor types have different AC mods). Chain Mail GTU description: Chain mail is made of interlocking metal rings. It is always worn over a layer of padded fabric or soft leather, in order to prevent chafing and lessen the impact of blows. STATISTICS: Armor Class: 5 Weight: 40 Requires: 8 Strength Not Usable By: ... Actual AC modifiers: Base AC: set to 5 AC bonus vs slashing: +2 AC penalty vs crushing: -2 Splint Mail GTU description: Splint mail is a variant of banded mail, in which metal strips are applied vertically to a backing of chain, leather, or cloth, rather than horizontally as with banded mail. Since the human body does not swivel in mid-torso as much as it flexes back to front, splint mail is more restrictive in battle.

Actual AC modifiers: Base AC: set to 4 AC bonus vs piercing: +1 AC bonus vs crushing: +2 AC bonus vs missile: +1 Link to comment
