One we need a more effective armor system -
Light Armors should have no penalty to movement- (thanks for Noticing my fail logic Malsqueek)
Each armor should have a Ratting for Blunt, Pierce, Slash, Magic(or element) This would be added or subtracted from the damge done by weapons of this type.
So light armors Such as Padded,Leather, would be weak to pierce, but stong vers Blunt, normal for slash.
So you have a Def of 3 from the padded With a subrating of (+2,-1,0,0) Its alwyas Blunt,Pierce,Slash,Magic
So a he gets hit with a club , for this attack its Def 0-3 +2 So he will always roll at least a 2 for def up to 5 just for his chest piece,
Now if He had been shot with a short bow it would be 0-3-1 so He can only roll a 0-2 on def.
Shields should have an % to block arrows... Bigger shields biger block% add a speed penalty for larger shields
This would make the armors much more tactical - So chain mail dose almost nothing to stop blunt weapons but its really good vs Pierce and slash.
Bows need lots of work... They need a min range, and a longer max range with a Close, medium, long, extream each range would have a +- modifire
Short bows - No min range, max of 6
Long Bows - can not shoot next square, range of 9
Great Bows- Can not shoot right next to them, range of 14
Cross Bows, Really would like to see cross bows, Unlike normal bows they only get one use per turn - No min range - but get a 10% to hit bonus- get a + pierce damage mod.
Hand Crossbow - Small off hand Weapon dose 3 damage max range of 4 can be used mounted
Crossbow- Damage of 8 max range 8
Repeating Crossbow- Small Crossbow that can befired mutiple times a turn- Damage - 4 max range 5 - can be used mounted
Heavy Crossbow- Damage Of 12 max range 12
Arrow Head techs- The +- Pierce only comes in to effect if the armor has a Pierce +-Ratting Dose not incress damage -
Barbed Arrowheads,- equipment - These arrow heads have jaged bladed sides with a back facing barbs - + 3 Damage - 1 Pierce
Armor Piercing Arrow Heads - Equipment - These arrow heads are forged to penatrate Heavy armor - +3 Pierce
Heavy Armor Piercing Arrow Heads - Equipment - Theses are Heaver Armor Piercing Arrowheads , + 6 pierce - 1 range
