Armor in Mystwood

It is possible to wear armor for increased protection. Only armor that looks realistic may be used- sports equipment and plastic Halloween armor are not allowed. Armor adds to your Hit Point total. For simplicity’s sake, it doesn’t matter if your foe strikes you in an armored area or not, you still have the extra Hit Points. 

The amount of Health you gain from your armor is rated according to the type of armor and what pieces of armor you are wearing. All of the following pieces of armor will stack with one another, however the maximum armor you are allowed to wear will be determined by your occupation. Other benefits may be gained by wearing armor enhanced by a blacksmith.
