A question about viewing armor
« on: February 03, 2014, 07:15:32 PM »
Some armor, when you view it from a shopkeep, will give a message about its weight:
You test its weight and decide that you could use it.

Other armor will give no such message.  Is there a difference?

I should clarify that the piece in question is a piece of "body" armor, not a shield or something you would wield.

I -think- that has something to do with whether or not it is too heavy for you to "hold" or "es" the item.

Most armor is useful to most races, and the weight echo when viewing each piece in the shops will reflect that. The weight test tag will be unmistakable when you run across a piece that your PC can't use.
The secret to great RP is having the balls to be weird and the brains to make it eloquent.

Actually...FantasyWriter is correct.  That message applies only to items you can hold in hand.

I have ALWAYS thought this.

You hear a man's voice shout from the north, "Who throws a shoe? Really?"

or

Code: [Select]

> behead half

You skillfully remove the head from a slight, desert-hued half elf.

>get head

You pick up the head of a slight, desert-hued half elf.

>attack templar

You viciously bludgeon the rugged, stubble-bearded templar on his head.
