Armor Guide

Armor Guide
by Lady Amerlise Vinsaile

Armor comes in a myriad of varieties. What to choose? For several professions, the choice is an easy one. Warriors traditionally wear the heaviest armor they can get away with and still swing a weapon. Pure spellcasters tend towards the lighter armors, or none at all, relying on their magics to safeguard them. For those in between, the rangers, bards and magical rogues, mostly, the choices are sometimes more daunting. Sacrifice greater mobility for the sturdier chain armors? Compromise your physical protection, to nurture your innate spell casting abilities? As with most parts of Elanthia, the choices and consequences are yours to make and take.

Some materials may have the ability to be unaffected by magic, while others may harness the destructive power of the elements. From ordinary metals like iron, to extremely rare substances with stunningly useful properties like vaalorn, the guide which follows details several types of materials and describes properties associated with each.

Weapon and Armor Enhancements
by Lord Grindoll Hevucita

Arcane spells from wizened Wizards, a sanctifying prayer from a devout Cleric, or a clever tweak from a traveling merchant can greatly alter the performance of your weapons or armor. Padding your armor or weighting, or lightening your weapons may come as a service from the more mundane craftsmen, while those with studies in the arcane or holy arts may imbed wondrous abilities into your items. Sometimes the difference between a decent blade and a finely crafted one is your own survival.
