Armor

Armor

(this is a draft but it seems solid)

Defense replaces AC – works the same way.  Armor gains a Damage Reduction.

To convert armor from other lists, move the AC bonus to DR directly, then…

Light Armor gains a Defense of 2 and is assumed to be concealed or concealable.  At the very least, subtle.

Medium Armor gains a Defense of 4.  -1 if it is concealable, such as a vest.  Concealed medium armor is not hard to detect up close – think police officer with patrol armor under his shirt.

Heavy Armor gains a Defense of 6.  It also reduces your run multiplier by one.

Any armor may be sealed (such as a spacesuit, hazmat suit, etc.)  This adds +2 Defense and is not at all concealable.  This is already added in the spacesuits below.

Power armor needs rules.  :)
