ON SIZING AND ARMOR
Some types of armor must be sized to your client. There are three sizes of armor. Small, medium and large. Some races can wear more than one size of armor.
Barbarians, ogres and trolls wear large armor.
Barbarian, elves, Erudites, half-elves and humans wear medium armor.
Dwarves, elves, gnomes and halflings wear small armor.
(SMALL, MEDIUM & LARGE)
Each piece of banded armor can be sized to a small, medium or large client.
The size or the armor is determined by the mold used. Each section of banded armor requires a sheet of metal and a mold appropriate to that section of the body. Each also requires a flask of water to cool it.
Belts, cloaks, helms, masks, mantles, and sleeves require 2 sheets of metal.
Leggings, and mail require 3 sheets of metal.
