Except where specifically noted, most types of armor cannot be combined with items found in other lists such as the Enlightened and Magic Related and retain their individual properties. In particular, robes found in the Enlightened and Magic Related list cannot be combined with types of armor found in the Armor list and benefit from properties each item would have by itself. These two lists are stand-alone when it comes to armor and robes. For example, one cannot have armored pocket robes because the armor plating of the armored robes takes up too much room to allow for the extra pockets of the pocket robes. Also, armored robes cannot benefit from the sound-muffling properties of Akajia robes as the armor plates are too bulky and heavy thus they cancel out the muffling properties. IMPORTANT NOTE: See Isurian Steel in the Lore for more detailed information on that material.

Also, when there is a racial tag show in parentheses next to a piece or suit of armor, this indicates that the specific entry is designed and built by the listed race and finding that particular item or suit outside of that race's main geographical area of influence is next to impossible and if available, the price is 10x the listed amount.

Cost Modifiers based on the type of material an armor is made of are cumulative with other modifiers such as the before mentioned availability modifier and even modifiers assigned by having an item Izentored by an isur or anyone else marked by Izurdin. Note that material modifiers only apply to suits or pieces of armor that do not already specific a certain material in their name and/or description. For example, an isurian battle robe is already made with isurian steel which is figured into its price already. Thus no modifier for isurian steel is added. However, if a suit of silver chainmail is izentored, modifiers are applied as follows: 150 gm (chaimail) + silver (x6) + izentor (x10) = 150 gm x 16 (6+10=16)= 2,400 gm.

For those races with extra limbs or odd body structures/types, for example, Eypharians have multiple arms so armor would need to be specifically altered for them. If purchased in their homeland, such armor does not cost any extra. If purchased anywhere else, the cost increases by half.


Item Price Item Price Item Price
Bone Mail (Aquatic) This is armor formed of small shards of bone, tied together with kelp rope or fish leather. 30 gm Buckskin Armor Composed of reinforced buckskin. Barbarians often gather the skins from young bucks to outfit their villages with this type of armor for tribal wars. 30 gm Camouflage Armor Made of interlocking leather scales dyed in earthy tones and shaped like leaves. Only the helmet, breast piece, bracers and grieves are crafted this way, with leggings and sleeves made of softer leather with etched leaf patterns. 50 gm
Chain Shirt A shirt of chainmail protects the torso while leaving the limbs free and mobile. A layer of quilted fabric underneath it prevents chafing and cushions the impact of blows. It comes with a steel cap. 100 gm Chitinous Armor Crafted from the specially-treated shells of giant spiders, boulder beetles and various over-sized insects, this armor provides decent physical protection to its wearer, but excellent protection against missile attacks thanks to its naturally rounded shape and smooth exterior. 200 gm Climbing Armor Lightweight and covered with an assortment of hooks, carabiners and tough, leather loops, this armor is designed to assist the wearer in his climbing attempts. Unfortunately, the design that allows the wearer to clamber up sheer surfaces also makes it more difficult for him to maneuver when not climbing. 100 gm
Cord Armor Cord is woven from tree bark and other durable plant fibers, tightly knotted and plaited into a thick, durable fabric. Like chainmail, cord armor is sometimes combined with heavier metal plates and is usually accompanied by a silk under-dress that protects the wearer from the course nature of the material. Popular among forest dwelling cultures. 10 gm Leather The breastplate and shoulder protectors of this armor are made of leather that has been stiffened by boiling in oil. The rest of the armor is softer and more flexible leather. 10 gm Leather, Night Ink-black and made with soft and tough spidersilk. The material seems to absorb light and is quite flexible and lightweight. The techniques for making such armor are highly guarded secrets by those who know them. 60 gm
Light Scale (Aquatic) Composed of small, light, scaled hide taken from fish and then hardened. It is most often used by more aquatic cultures. Often called, fish-leather. 30 gm Padded Padded armor features quilted layers of cloth and padding frequently in a diamond or square pattern. 5 gm Robe of Leaves Fashioned from the treated leaves of certain trees and reinforced with thin strips of tanned leather, this armor is both functional and often quite beautiful. Construction techniques are known only to certain crafters living among forest cultures. 55 gm
Slender Chainmail Shirt (Isurian) Specifically crafted to be concealed beneath a tunic and to be virtually noiseless as the wearer moves about. Though it offers slightly less protection than standard chainmail, it is still quite popular. 120 gm Soft Kelp Armor (Aquatic) The lightest and most flexible type of undersea armor, this armor is fashioned from kelp that has been treated to enhance toughness and resiliency. The armor is still very pliant and is woven in thin layers. It is usually pale green in hue. Most often found in use by aquatic cultures. 7 gm Stiffened Kelp Armor (Aquatic) Somewhat tougher than soft kelp and woven in thicker layers, this armor offers more protection at some cost in comfort and mobility. It is dark emerald green and is often decorated with small, brightly-colored mollusks that cling to the armor. The treatment process prevents them from digesting it. Most likely found in use by aquatic cultures. 15 gm
Studded Leather This armor is made from tough but flexible leather (not hardened leather as with normal leather armor) reinforced with close-set metal rivets. 25 gm Symenestra Armor Comprised of Chitin materials with a sleeker outline than standard Chitin armor, specially crafted for lean Symenestra bodies. It is often worn in segments, the individual pieces buckled into place to allow for ease of motion. Its primary use is protection from close physical attacks. Torso only protection cuts 1/3 from cost. 90 gm

Back and Breast Consist of a breast and back plate, usually worn in addition to lighter armor, thus providing an extra degree of protection at the expense of increased weight and less freedom of movement. Light armor already worn when this is donned transforms it into medium armor. 50 gm Breastplate Covers the front and back. It comes with a helmet and matching greaves (plates to cover the lower legs). A light suit or skirt of studded leather beneath the breastplate protects limbs without restricting movement much. 200 gm Brigandine Consists of metal splints sewed upon canvas, linen or leather and covered with similar materials. 250 gm
Chainmail Made of interlocking metal rings. It includes a layer of quilted fabric underneath it to prevent chafing and to cushion the impact of blows. Several layers of mail are hung over vital areas. Most of the armor's weight hangs from the shoulders, making chainmail uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time. It includes gauntlets. 150 gm Fur-Lined Hide Mail Made from hardened layers of leather, this armor is adorned with soft fur around the neck and waistline. 65 gm Hauberk A one-piece set of chain armor. It is similar to a chain shirt, except that it hangs lower, to just below the knee. Most hauberks have a hood attached that protects the wearer’s head. A hauberk is cheaper and easier to manufacture than regular chainmail and offers nearly the same amount of protection, although it hinders its wearer’s movements more. 110 gm
Heraldic Coin Armor A unique set of armor crafted from the various types of coins found throughout the land. Everything from copper to gold has been used to create intricate patterns, including family crests in some instances. This armor is highly prized by war captains and politicians as a symbol of their status. 450-5,000 gm Hide Prepared from multiple layers of leather and animal hides. It is stiff and hard to move in. 15 gm Hide, Hunter’s The cured hide wraps around the wearer mimicking the anatomy of a beast, fur and smell included, with the head of the animal serving as a helmet. 20 gm
Lamellar This armor consists of hundreds of small rectangular iron, leather, or bronze plates patterned in an almost scale-like way, which are pierced in various locations and laced together into horizontal rows. Often worn over other forms of lighter armor such as leather or chainmail, the design of the Lamellar has a better chance of causing blades to skim over its surface rather than piercing or cutting. 45 gm Medium Scale (Aquatic) Used by the same cultures that use light scale, this armor is made of heavier plates from large, better-armored fish and several additional layers of smaller scales as well. 75 gm Tree Bark Armor Made from treated tree bark , this armor protects its wearer fairly well. Those who are out in the field and in need of an emergency set of armor often craft this type. 10 gm
Robe, Armored Small, metal plates and thick leather padding sewn into the inner side of the robe provide protection without drawing undue attention to the wearer. Unfortunately, armored robes are both bulky and heavy, limiting movement and speed. 55 gm Robe, Battle (Isurian) Resilient fabric made from gossamer thread intertwines with Isurian steel wire and small, iron plates, providing very good protection. There are versions of battle robes tailored as dresses and gowns. Amazing levels of protection combined with near weightlessness and flexibility make these robes a rare prize to be had. 2,500 gm Scale Mail This is a coat and leggings (and perhaps a separate skirt) of leather covered with overlapping pieces of metal, much like the scales of a fish. It includes gauntlets. 50 gm
Small Shell Armor (Aquatic) Consists of a soft kelp undergarment with many small shells sewn into it for added protection. The shells are often chosen for decorative as well as protection value and each suit of this armor is a unique work of art. Unique to aquatic cultures. 60 gm Wire Armour (Isurian) Rather than craft armor from rows of linked chains or overlapping plates, some Isur braid their armor from lengths of steel wire. It provides excellent protection from slashing and piercing but is unable to shield the wearer from bludgeoning. It is lighter weight than solid metal armor. 1,000 gm

Banded Mail Made of overlapping strips of metal sewn to a backing of leather and chainmail. The strips cover vulnerable areas, while the chain and leather protect the joints and provide freedom of movement. Straps and buckles distribute the weight evenly. It includes gauntlets. 250 gm Bladeshatter Plate (Isurian) The armor plates of this battle suit form sharp angles, which can chip or even shatter a sword or knife blade when it strikes them at the proper angle. The unique form of the plates does not affect axes, hammers, or other weapons. 3,000 gm Bronze Plate Half-plate armor that is much lighter in construction, allowing greater mobility at the expense of heavy protection. 900 gm
Full Plate Consists of shaped and fitted metal plates riveted and interlocked to cover the entire body. It includes gauntlets, heavy leather boots and a visored helmet. Buckles and straps distribute the weight over the body, so full plate hampers movement less than splint mail even though splint is lighter. Each suit of full plate must be individually fitted to its owner by a master smith, although a captured suit can be re-sized to fit a new owner. 1,500 gm Half-Plate A combination of chainmail with metal plates (breastplate, epaulets, elbow guards, gauntlets, tassets and greaves) covering vital areas. Buckles and straps hold the whole suit together and distribute the weight, but the armour still hangs more loosely than full plate. It includes gauntlets. 600 gm Heavy Scale Armor (Aquatic) Made from several layers of carefully prepared fish-leather reinforced with large scales. This thick, heavy armor grants little mobility but offers much security. Most common among aquatic cultures. 2,000 gm
Large Shell Armor (Aquatic) Uses larger shells to form the main components; the breast plate, shoulder plates and so on and links them together with smaller shells and bone pieces to provide excellent protection, though at a significant cost in weight and flexibility. 500 gm Plant Fiber Plate Made from densely compressed plates of extremely tough and resistant plant fibers. 700 gm Splint Mail Made of narrow, vertical strips of metal riveted to a backing of leather that is worn over cloth padding. Flexible chainmail protects the joints. It includes gauntlets. 200 gm
Wood Splint Armor Made of narrow strips of wood (usually painted black) backed onto leather with thick cord that is worn over cloth padding. Unlike many other suits of armor, wood splint is worn with heavy leather gloves, rather than gauntlets. 100 gm

Buckler A small, metal shield strapped to the forearm allowing it to be worn and still use the hand. 15 gm Shield, Crossbow (Isurian) Similar to a tower shield, this device can be attached to the front of a crossbow to form a protective tripod. This not only shields the archer but also stabilizes the weapon for a more accurate shot. A small view hole allows one to see targets past the shield. 100 gm Shield, Jousting Has a round cleft on its right upper edge, designed to fit a lance for better stability. 30 gm
Shield, Large, Leather The leather is supported across a wooden framework and stiffened using processes similar to those used in the creation of hide armor. Piercing and slashing attempts rip through the shield while blunt are protected against. 2 gm Shield, Large, Wooden Similar in function to a large steel shield, the wooden shield is of course less durable. 7 gm Shield, Large, Steel A large protective shield that eliminates the use of the shield arm for anything other than using the shield. 20 gm
Shield, Retractable, Wooden (Isurian) Initially appears to be the size of a buckler and acts as such. It can actually be expanded with the pulling of a release key. Upon release the fans that make up the retractable shield spread out and become a large shield. The retractable shield then acts just like large shield. Retractable shields require one minute to retract to their original state and this is done by turning the key until the fans that make up the shield lock into place. 15 gm Shield, Retractable, Metal (Isurian) Initially appears to be the size of a buckler and acts as such. It can actually be expanded with the pulling of a release key. Upon release the fans that make up the retractable shield spread out and become a large shield. The retractable shield then acts just like large shield. Retractable shields require one minute to retract to their original state and this is done by turning the key until the fans that make up the shield lock into place. 50 gm Shield, Small, Leather Light and very flexible but provides only limited protection against attack. The leather is supported across a wooden framework and stiffened using processes similar to those used in the creation of hide armor. 1 gm
Shield, Small, Wooden A small shield’s light weight allows one to carry other items in that hand save for weapons. 3 gm Shield, Small, Steel A small shield’s light weight allows one to carry other items in that hand save for weapons. 9 gm Shield, Tower A massive, wooden shield nearly as tall as the wielder. Basically, it is a portable wall meant to provide cover. It can provide up to total cover, depending on how far a person comes out from behind it. 30 gm
Shield, Turtle (Isurian) Appearing as a normal tower shield, the turtle shield can be unfolded and will stand on its own, providing 100% cover to those behind it. It is most often found in use on the battlefield specifically to protect injured while they are tended to. 100 gm Shield, Woven Lightweight, steeply-rounded shields made of interwoven lengths of either lacquered rattan or bamboo. 10 gm

Avantail This is a short piece of chainmail that hangs loosely from a helmet to add protection to the neck. 20 gm Armour spikes A series of spikes added to suits of armor. Mainly used to add an intimidation factor, the spikes can also be useful in close combat. 50 gm Besagues These circular plates are tied to the elbow joint and in front of the shoulders of full and half plate armor for additional protection. 50 gm
Form-Fit Armor with this modification has to be tailored to the character’s dimensions and crafted by a master smith. Form-fit armor is created in order to allow a character to put the armor on and wear it with the minimum amount of effort and fuss. 150 gm Gauntlet, Locked (Isurian) Small chains and braces that allow the wearer to attach his weapon so that it cannot be dropped easily. 8 gm Roundels Consisting of a series of discs attached to the vulnerable joints of metal armor, roundels provide a greater level of protection at the expense of extra weight. Roundels may be combined with any medium or heavy armor, with the exception of full plate. 125 gm
Surcoat Similar to a tabard, a surcoat is a cloth garment worn over armor to identify its wearer. It is long and flowing like a tunic. 2 gm Shield Spikes Allow a shield to cause more harm when used as a bashing weapon. 10 gm Shield Teeth Protrusions that are meant to catch a blade or shaft and rip the weapon out of an opponent’s hand. 10 gm
Tabard, Chain Consists of two layers of cloth with a middle layer of chainmail. It cannot be worn over heavy armor as it hampers movement too much. 55 gm Tabard, Padded A rectangular piece of cloth worn over armor. Normal tabards are meant to bear the wearer’s coat of arms or other symbols, but armored tabards add protection. A padded tabard is made of many layers of heavy cloth that can be worn over any armor. 15 gm


Helmets come in all shapes and sizes and serve a variety of function. Below is a short list of some of the different styles commonly found around Mizahar. Note that the helmets are listed with base prices for steel. These prices may vary based on material. See materials below.

Item Price Item Price Item Price
Helmet, Chin Guard A helmet which may or may not impair vision to the sides. Provides less defense than the Great Helm or it's kin but does not impair vision as much. It often weighs less. The most important element of this type of helmet however is the strap, usually some type of leather, that helps keep it on the wearer's head. 50 gm Helmet, Great Helm A full helmet that covers the entire head and neck. It often has a visor with narrow eye-slots that flips up to offer a wider field of vision. It is primarily used while mounted on a horse but also used on foot. This helmet is quite efficient at protecting one's head and face yet somewhat impairs vision because of the visor and narrow field of view. It is also rather heavy. 30 gm Helmet, Nasal A common type of helmet that works to protect the head and nose. It allows for a wider range of vision at the expense of protection as other than the nose, most of the face is open. 25 gm
Helmet, Skullcap one of the oldest types of helmets to date and found in use all over Mizahar, the skullcap found its first widespread use centuries ago among the Isur who required head protection that did not impede them while offering some amount of protection. The skullcap is little more than a thin piece of metal shaped to fit over the top of one's head. It does not offer any protection to the face or neck and it is very thin. Thus, while protecting from light strikes to the head, it will not hold up against much else. 10 gm
