Armor

As stated previously any time an attacker actually does damage to a person,
the defender subtracts their armor points for the armor they are wearing
from the damage first. The following chart shows the armors that are available
and the armor points for each type of armor.

(1) Can be worn under any armor greater than cuirboli    
(2) These armors can be worn under plate mail    

Armors that can be worn under other armor, add their full armor points
and one-quarter encumbrance values just as normal armor does. Use the encumbrance
rules to determine if the fatigue rate of the character changes. Armor encumbrance
is determined by the size of the armor and by the type of armor where Total
Encumberance is equal to the size X encumberance points. Size is equal to
the average of the character’s height and weight.

Sir Lyandyke always fully equips himself for war by donning his platemail,
bezainted, and soft leather armor. He has a size of 16, so the encumbrance
for his armor is 44 for the platemail, 16 for the bezainted, and 8 for the
leather. This makes a total of 68 encumbrance if carried. Fortunately he
is wearing it so it’s relative encumbrance is only 17 kg. A man Lyandyke’s
size can carry 12 Kg as an average; therefore, he is 1.5X average weight
or 6 fourths. He will loose 6 PF.
