  1. Weight figures are for armor sized to fit Medium characters. Armor fitted for Small characters weighs half as much,
    and armor fitted for Large characters weighs twice as much.
  2. When running in heavy armor, you move only triple your speed, not quadruple.
  3. A tower shield can instead grant you cover. See the description.
  4. Hand not free to cast spells.

  1. This value is for armor only. Hit points for shields are determined by multiplying their thickness by the hit point value of the material.
    Small shields are 3/4 inch thick and large shields are 1 1/2 inches thick.

  1. Unlike the additional cost, the increase to the armor or shield's hardness and
    hit points are only gained from its enhancement bonus, not its special abilities.
  2. If the armor or shield has a magical bonus greater than +5 or a special ability
    worth more than +5, then it's epic. Multiply magic cost by 10.
