Ring Mail (armor)

An armor of uncertain make and design, as no actual examples of this type of armor exist in fact, rather only in loose descriptions from the medieval period. Nevertheless, we may assume it to be individual (not interlocking) rings sewn over the surface of a garment, intended to act similarly to studded leather armor.

Ring mail provides the same +3 armor class adjustment as studded leather armor (lowers armor class by 3 points). However, it is moderately heavier and much stronger with regards to item saving throws (for which it should save as a metal and not as leather). It also requires the purchase of cloth padded armor (though not the hauberk), which must be worn with the ring mail torso.
