Inspecting Composite Armor
From the Book of War
- 3.7. Composite Armor
- 3.7.1. Studded, scaled, or brigandine Armor can only be counted as Armor if 2/3 of the target area is covered by metal or leather, or the studs/rings/plates can not be no more than 1/2 inch apart.
- 3.7.2. Composite Armor must be identifiable as Armor by appearance.
How to Inspect Composite Armor
- 1. Armor must be worn while it is being checked.
- 2. Check and make sure the armor conforms to the standards of the Book of War.
- 3. Depending on the composition of the armor, there will be several different things to check for. Run your hands along the surface of the armor looking for gaps that may catch fabric or skin. Look for sharp metal or hard corners of leather.
- 4. Make sure that there is a sufficient number of studs, rings, or plates to cover two thirds of the overall area. Also make sure that the studs, rings, or plates are not farther than a half inch away from another stud, rings, or plate in multiple directions. This can be eyeballed or measured with a ruler or tape measure.
