Seth S that's a chameleon prize for you, for everyone else here's some post-apoc armour stuff that I had kicking around for a now dismantled project. Anyway so you have your armour categories which do what ever armour does in your setting. You need a minimum of  X pieces of armour to qualify for that category.

Armour categories Light 2 pieces
                             Medium 4 pieces must include chest armour
                             Heavy 6 pieces must include chest armour and  either a helmet or greaves and gauntlets
                             Very Heavy : Must have 2  relics/high magic/ power armour etc

Items with a + beside them count as 2 pieces. Items with a - break if an attack roll rolls exactly what it needs to hit  you. Do I need to say that you can only effectively wear one piece of each type?

  1. I like the hint of triceratops in the chameleon. Like it knows that somewhere waaaaaaay back in the bloodline, his great to the power of nth graddy pappy stuck it to the Tryranno-Man.

    1. Except chameleons did not involve from dinosaurs , Reptiles branched off from the dinosaurs ancestor way before there were dinosaurs. I just thought I would share that

    2. aw, don't shatter chameleon's illusions. he looks so happy believing he's part dinosaur

  2. Wow, I'm sorry I haven't checked in in a while, that Chameleon is totally sweet and is bursting with all kinds of personality. Thanks for drawing it Scrap.

  3. Poltroon (antique)

    Armoured in layers of spatchcocked cowards. *Chortle*

    1. Butts. I thought that was how you spelt it . Pauldron is what I meant. But now that I look it up I guess I'm thinking of a Gardbrace.
