I’m making an equipment list for a fantasy game and I wanted to offer a bit more of progression to armor. Would it be very unbalanced to make higher defense armor for higher WL?
I understand that the WL and all that is kinda balanced at the moment so that you could start out as a knight in plate mail from the beginning but I’m okay, and I think it fits the setting I’m making, for it to be more of a thing you work up into and the payoff being higher levels of defense when you are able to afford it.
I figure that you can still stack on armor mastery, defense mastery, shield, etc in either case, so at the end of the day it’s just going to be an extra 1-3 points for quite a bit of WL and prerequisite fortitude. And it’ll be a status symbol as well, since it will be quite expensive.
I know it sounds like I am already convinced but I am asking because I want to know if I’ve overlooked something or there is a flaw in my reasoning. Thank you!
