Enhanced Armor

Pages: 8

Game System: OGL 3.5/Pathfinder

This file covers four unique types of non-magical enhancements and alternate rules that can be used to improve your medieval armor:

  • Gemstone Plating

  • Hell Forged

  • Reinforced

  • Piece Mail

Gemstone Plating: Several metals, including iron, can be plated with a thin layer of gemstone dust, causing the metal to shimmer. Furthermore, some gemstones, such as rubies and diamonds, are harder than steel and impart a considerable bonus to armor that is plated with them. This first section outlines the costs and effects of plating your armor with emeralds, rubies, topaz, sapphire or diamonds.

Hell Forged: Although not necessarily crafted on a lower plane, this metal is forged with the aid of magic. Transmuted ores are worked with magically enhanced blast furnaces that reach hellish temperatures. The result is a high tension, pure grade steel that has an astounding hardness and resistance...

Reinforced: Reinforced armors are constructed with several heavy, overlapping layers of redundant armor. Reinforced suits of plate mail are extremely cumbersome and often make the wearer appear much larger than he actually is. This section outlines the costs and effects of wearing extra-heavy armor of all kinds.

Piece Mail: What if you don't have a full suit of armor? What if all you can find is few odd pieces on the bugbears you just killed? A thick iron belt, an epaulet and bracer, and a gorget; they should offer some protection, but how much? And would they still work if you put on a suit of leather armor?   This section incorporates established OGL rules to account for mismatched and partial suits of armor in a simple and useful system

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
