I'm not a marshal, but I am certain you wouldn't get any armor points for that. My suggestion to you is to borrow some armor for this weekend, and then take the time to get some good stuff afterwards. Failing that, Inaryn's suggestion *may* net you some armor depending on the marshal.Do you guys think this could net a point of armor? Constrictions definately on my mind, but with good padding, caution, or maybe even gluing/sewing it onto the shirt will alleviate it.
Nope, that's not the shirt, just the undershirt. There's a lot more, I was just testing it out, thanks! ^.^Is the shirt in your picture the one you're planning on wearing? I have a more... in genre shirt I can give you. (it's even black if you want to be in black!)
You get a free re-write after your first weekend event ever. And, even so, at first level, there's typically not much difference between a fighter and a rogue. I would look at which one nets you the best build/lets you do the most 'stuff' over the weekend, and just go with that.Daaarn, that's what I thought. I suppose I could see about borrowing some armor, or go iron man and head in there naked. xD Rogues aren't super tanky anyways, especially for level one. Thanks for the advice everyone!
It is also zinc-plated steel as opposed to stainless steel so you will want to take special care of it during and after events to reduce rusting. You will also want to eventually pick up some extra rings to replace the ones that inevitably will fall off, since the rings are butted.
