Everything about Illarion that fits nowhere else. / Alles über Illarion was inhaltlich in kein anderes Board passt.
Agree it would be the best, but I have seen elven armor and weapons way too many times on orcs and so on to be honest.. And it feels kinda strange the armor from dead monsters suit everyone. That is almost impossible to RP i would say...Vern Kron wrote:There is already something like this, it is called roleplay. You may declare if it fits or not. Most people say not, since making armor takes huge amounts of metal and can become rather annoying.
I was for this idea a while back, but now I realise it can be easily done. If something says 'dwarven' armor, then perhaps it is not for a gigantic lizard! Sure, you can say that it was made bigger for a lizard, but only so far can you go before the style of the armor would be lost and thus produce something that does not make sense.
Humans can wear generally any armor, since they are sort of a median ground but a very tall human may prefer to wear elven armor, where as a very fat and short human may prefer dwarven.
Halflings would probably prefer to wear leather, or dwarven like armor, or perhaps small human armor. Same with dwarves, orcs, and goblins.
Fairies probably would be wearing minimal armor, since they need to fly.
Elves, Lizards, and Humans may prefer to wear elven armor.
Gnomes are odd, and most likely would prefer to have arms free to do more sort of work rather then fight. But, I suppose leather armor or some types of metal armor would be more comfortable but it would probably be a lighter type.
Roleplay is how this can be handled, with ease. If you are looking for balances within the armor system, I believe that is currently being worked on anyway.
