Platemail Armor

Certainly one of the more imposing types of protection, Platemail Armor weighs a lot and prevents you from actively meditating. A lot of strength is required to wear plate, and it virtually eliminates even the sneakiest character's ability to stealth.

Base Properties

All types of armor in a given set come with the same basic resists. For example, a platemail gorget provides exactly the same level of protection as a platemail tunic. Armor that is exceptionally crafted will receive a bonus that is further boosted by your character's Arms Lore skill, while Runic Tools, Imbuing or Runic Re-Forging can be used to send the total resistance level far higher than reachable by crafting, and also to add additional Item Properties.

Some forms of armor are "medable", meaning they do not affect your use of the meditation skill when worn. Elven armor can only be worn elves.

Individual Properties

Plate is crafted by blacksmiths, and can be recycled using a Salvage Bag or smith tool. To perform either action your character must be standing near an anvil and forge. Smelting provides a better return if you have a high level of mining.

Parts retain the color of the material from which they are made. Crafted (and not yet imbued) versions can have their durability increased, via Powder of Fortifying, to a maximum of 255 and can be dyed with Pigments of Tokuno. If crafted exceptionally by a GM+ crafter they can hold their maker's mark.
