So, you have chosen your faction and you are trying to decide what armor to wear. What is allowed for your faction? What will give you the most protection? How do you kill the heavily armored opponent?
Each faction has their own unique culture, choice of fighting style, and armor preferences. All weapons and armor should be inspired by what was available in Western Europe from the 9th-14th Centuries. We do operate in a fantasy world allowing for things like the expanded use of leather armor and the use of fantasy-inspired armor. However this is a very limited allowance. The kingdom of Olaran is a human founded and run kingdom and their armor is designed for practicality and use. Not flash and show. If you have any questions or if you intend to purchase armor from an outside vendor, please feel free to send us an email with a picture of the armor at firstname.lastname@example.org. Better to find out before you spend the money if it will be approved!
