Armor ideas... (in General)

j'bob September 14 2008 12:09 AM EDT

So as I sit bored, eagerly waiting for more change month changes...
I began contemplating armor ideas.

1) Body armor working with tattoos?
Why not. I don't mean simply, "Hey! Let me have my cake and eat it too!"
But why not a give and take. Say allow body armor to be worn with a tattoo but with a general reduction in the over all functionality.
ie. You could wear your ToA and your TSA but the TSA would have a reduction in armor points (say a percentage including base and +) as well as a further reduction to regeneration and such.
Maybe a bit more complicated than it's worth but I haven't created a thread in a while so here we are.

Secondly) With the recent reduction in AC (the whole SS thing) how about some new armor slots? Dare I say it... PANTS. Or even armor for the arms, like vambraces, something to go from your glove to your shoulder. And if #1 (above) doesn't tickle you then arm armor could be worn with a tattoo providing more AC and what ever fancy ideas Jon could give them, maybe bonuses to ST or/and DD.. BRACERS OF FOCUS (for DD spells I know we have gloves that can do that but those could be used WITH NS. Just make them less potent or much more expensive to upgrade than AG so's to keep the AG viable).

C) There was a C... and now I've forgotten what it was. Maybe for the best.

I think we have enough. Besides, if we add pants, next month someone will want socks. The month after that we'll need underwear.

Might as well get pets while we're at it.

We're scotts. Who needs pants.

How about a "A 2008 CB G-String"?

How about a "A 2008 CB G-String"? that has my PainKiller's stamp of approval, with 755% more authority than the Hatchetman's stamp of approval.

forgot that I need to use the <p> tag with HTML. :P
I blame the <nospellcheck> tags.

I vote for pets, pants, socks, speedos, and a 2008 G-string.

PK, 755% of 0 is still 0....

Sorry Hatch (and PK for that matter)

Instead of pants can we have kilts? If I recall correctly the skirt wearing Scots won in Brave Heart. Skirts FTW, Pants FTL!

... and whatever happened to the 'real men fight naked' movement?
