    1 Weight figures are for armor sized to fit Medium characters. Armor fitted for Small characters weighs half as much, and armor fitted for Large characters weighs twice as much.
    2 When running in heavy armor, you move only triple your speed, not quadruple.
    3 A tower shield can instead grant you cover. See the description.
    4 Hand not free to cast spells.
    * Can be worn alone or added to existing suits of armor.
