During last PC sale and MM I remember many people complaining about the amount of skimpwear (I didn’t tell them to go complain elsewhere but that’s beside the point of this post).

Hats off to Val and Lesthat for this description

After all, full-coverage armor is really only for those who don’t know how to fight.

That made my day and was so funny I forgot how poorly this PC sale started. Love ya’s!

And here I always thought skimpy armor was used as a distraction strategy. 
How is a guy suppose to concentrate on her sword swinging at him when he’s too busy staring at something else? gulp

Hell, some of the fiercest fighters, throughout history chucked armor to the side and fought naked…the Spartans, Celtic/Germanic berserkers, elite Incan warriors (jaguar skin doesn’t really count as armor) and so on…

It’s a fine tradition.

Too bad most females encountered in such scenarios though, really could use fully covering armor, including a closed helm…not that that particular one shown in the promo should…but, I’m just saying, most of the would even put off a troll.

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.

Like trying to cover up his other sword.

Thank goodness that tradition was lost in time when I was into street fighting back in my late teens.

If you truly value that sword…NEVER expose it within striking distance of an irate female wielding a blade of her own…

A line from Mel Brook’s History of the World comes to mind.

Something I cooked up for the PC sales back in 2010, to drum up some votes.

Thought it rather fitted in here smile

Best skimpware defense? Magic elf armor…

If it’s really powerful, it can protect you even if it’s just a string around the waist. (I take it they have a different sense of style though).


Of course full body metal armor is only any good, with a hulk horse, and a gang of maneuverable fighters around you.

Otherwise, you’re a sardine can on the ground, as soon as you start.

One of them has to help you off the horse, so you can pee… unless you’re gross.


So, I dunno, chain mail vest isn’t too bad, especially if you don’t weigh it down with breast plates. smile

Of course to make it fun for guys to watch, it’ll probably pinch her on a couple of bits she doesn’t want to have pinched… by metal…

So she’ll probably put something underneath it, like guys do. And then it’s not skimpware.


Oh, hey, ok, that’s what we’re talking about. That’s pretty funny. smile I should’ve read that first.

Haven’t tried full plate but I have used mail and leather.  When going up against an opponent who is larger with a longer reach (which is just about everyone I go up against), I prefer to have as much of me covered as possible.

In the places like Iraq and Afghanistan: Kevlar.  Don’t go anywhere without it.
