Making the Game:
- About AR Rating and Armor
30 August 1997 (11:41 am)
GM Wile E jumped into the game a little while ago to announce that the AR statistic display has changed. The number now means the maximum amount of damage your armor can absorb during an attack. So, if your AR is 8, then your armor has the possibility to absorb 8 points of damage during an attack.
- On a related note, EvilJohn dropped by IRC a few nights ago and explained how layered armor works:
Combat is locational based, ie. if a creature hits you in the chest it ONLY takes the
AR of the BEST chest piece so layering all of that is only for looks.
So basically layering your clothing is useless except for fashion purposes.
