Armor Equipment

Armor Qualities

If you choose armor for your character, refer to the table below for details about the various types of armor types. The armor qualities on the table are explained below.

Cost: The cost of the armor. Note that not all armor is available for sale on the open market; prices are given for comparison purposes.

Damage Reduction: The protective value of the armor. When a character wears armor, the armor’s damage reduction reduces wound damage by the given amount (but not vitality damage). For example, when a character wearing a combat jumpsuit is hit for 6 points of wound damage, the armor’s damage reduction of 3 means that the character only loses 3 wound points (6 – 3 = 3).

Maximum Dex Bonus: This is the maximum Dexterity bonus you can apply to your Defense when wearing this type of armor. Heavier armor limits you mobility, reducing your ability to avoid attacks. For example, padded battle armor permits a maximum Dexterity bonus of +3. A character with a Dexterity score of 18 normally gains a +4 bonus to his Defense, but if he’s wearing padded battle armor, his bonus drops to +3.

Armor Check Penalty: Armor interferes with a character’s ability to use certain skills. You apply the armor check penalty to certain skill checks while wearing the armor. Any checks using skills that have Strength or Dexterity as the key ability receive the penalty, unless you possess the appropriate Armor Proficiency feat. Even with the appropriate feat, the penalty still applies to checks using the following skills: Climb, Disable Device, Escape Artist, Hide, Jump, Move Silently, Sleight of Hand, Swim, and Tumble.

Nonproficient with Armor: If you wear armor with which you aren’t proficient, you suffer the armor’s check penalty on attack rolls as well.

Speed: Medium and Heavy Armor slows you down. This number indicates your speed when wearing this type of armor. Medium-size characters (base speed of 10 meters) use the first column. Small characters (base speed of 6 meters) use the second column.

Weight: The weight of the armor. Armor fitted for Small characters weighs half as much.
