Stacking Armor

Post by shroom2021 » 2013-02-27

With the new points system for armor, I think this would now be a possibility.

I think it would work best as this:

Added to Armor section:
"Any worn armor may be increased with 1 additional hitpoint by adding armor from either the AR2 or AR3 categories underneath it. AR1 is reserved for gap coverage and AR4 may not be stacked."

IE1. Janet wears a plate chest piece. Janet wears chainmail under her chest piece. Janet may now allow up to 5 hits against her torso before receiving damage to that area. (AR4 = 4hp; AR3 = (Trunc(3/2) = 1hp); 4hp + 1hp = 5hp;)

IE2. John wear a plate chest piece. John wears a hide chest piece under the plate. John may now allow up to 5 hits against his torso before receiving damage to that area. (AR4 = 4hp; AR2 = (2/2 = 1hp); 4hp + 1hp = 5hp;)

IE3. Lisa wears a plate helm. Lisa wears a chain coif under the plate helm. Lisa may allow up to 5 hits against her head before receiving damage to that area. (Reference IE1)



I am interested to see what the realm thinks about this idea and if any loopholes can be found with the verbiage above. The math is simply there to show how I arrived at the 1 additional hp for AR2 and AR3.

No. Stacking armor is too powerful.

We also don't need people wearing crappy studded or cloth ring under their armor to buff plate.

But even chain under plate is good enough covering gaps. We don't need to up it to 5.

Our game has too many hits as it is. We have too many players to have giant slugfests with 50v50 dudes beating eachother with 4 hits to a limb. And that's just a land action.

But truth be told, the fight lasted less than 5 minutes :)
