ARMOR

Armor is used to protect the wearer from harm and injury. It is a suit of cloth, leather or metal. While it does protect the wearer, it often incurs some sort of penalty to the character’s AGL attribute and AGL based skills such as stealth and defensive tactics. Generally, the heavier the armor, the more protection, and the greater the penalty. The penalty is equal to twice the PV of the armor.

Each armor has a "Protection Value". This is the amount of injury that is absorbed by the armor. When a character is struck, the armor will absorb a certain amount of injury. Anything else is applied to the character’s IP.

In the table below, there are two columns. The column titled "Armor" gives the name of the armor. Next is the PV of the armor. After that is the amount that the armor weighs and its cost in silver talons.
