Chainmail under Leather armor

Postby EltNoobl » Wed Mar 08, 2017 2:10 pm

Hey guys,

I know that anything made of aluminium isnt legal for armor, but could one wear it under legal leather armor as garb? I have a breastplate that I like wearing that's legal, but is a little narrow on the chest and I think that chainmail would look good in the places that it doesnt cover.

If it's not legal armor I would refrain from wearing it, both because it's extra weight that serves no purpose and more importantly it might give people the impression that you have armor in places where it is seen under/around the breastplate

Nope. If it fails, it fails. It would definitely give the impression that you have armor on even though it doesn't pass, so you can't wear it as garb.
