Armor of Arkadia

The armor worn by warriors of the frozen north is similar to that worn in other lands, with only slight differences. Players are urged to find period terms for familiar equipment; this link is an excellent place to start. Since the Arkadia campaign is using the armor as DR variant, all the armors available in the campaign will be listed here with appropriate names and adjusted statistics.
