Armour and Speed

Armour can reduce the Speed Trait of the wearer. Light Armour inflicts a -25% penalty to speed. Medium Armour inflicts a -50% penalty, and Heavy Armour inflicts a -75% penalty. All fractions are rounded up. The Talent Training] reduces the penalty to speed.

Editor's Note: Oh and please remember - its speed, not Initiative. I confused the two at first myself.

Shields

The Buckler is a small shield strapped to an arm or held out in front of the user. When strapped to the arm, the character has a hand free and can use a weapon in the same arm. The Dastana are special gloves and arm protection made in Naipon, and does not hinder the use of weapons. Vambraces are guards which protect from the wrist to upper forearm, and can be used to deflect attacks. Sleeves protect the wrist and arm, up to the elbow, while Full Arms continue up to protect up to the shoulder, and both are normally used by gladiators. Tower Shields are incredibly large, and reduce the user’s Speed Trait by –5 and are not meant to just be carried around.

Damage for using shields in an attack is equal to the base defence of the shield. Vambraces may be use the Skill for Active Defence. The Vambrace, Sleeve, and Full Arm can be made a part of an existing suit of armour of the appropriate type. Add the Minimum Cost to the suit of armour and increase the Bulk of the armour by one. The Weight Category for a Shield is applied when the Shield is used as a [http://worldselectshop.com/?id=9361 to Equipment]
