Default Re: Cloth under Armor and Capes

The only really essential thing about TFT's armor stats is that the DX penalty equals the protective value except for fine plate. So long as you stay within this 'trade space' and aren't doing something else unusual (like, tweaking experience and advancement rules to give yourself a DX of 25), then any house rules will be fine. e.g., layering chainmail over padded armor is equivalent to half plate; leather over chainmail over padded armor (yes, this is an historical mix of 14th century armor!) provides protection like fine plate but at a higher DX penalty of -6. None of this is game changing, so I'd say proceed at will.
