Armor

Armor is what protects the people who protect the republic. Whether it be a scrap of leather across your chest or the best squamata out there, there is a good chance you'll need it at some point.

Variations may exist of each armor type listed below. For example, some bronze helmets have neck protection while others do not. To see what a piece of armor covers and how well it protects use the INSPECT command.

Armor protections range from no protection to excellent as follows:
No - Worst protection
Little
Fairly Good
Good
Very Good
Excellent - Best protection
