Adding Damage Reduction to Armor
Separating AC into AR and EV:
AR: AR is comprised of two numbers, the first is the AR Threshold. When damaged above the threshold, thats when AR kicks in and starts reducing the damage. The second represents how much the damage is reduced.
ex. a Fighter with AR 5/10 gets hit for 16 damage. He takes the first 5 as normal, but each point after is subject to a reduction up to 10. So 6 damage. If the same fighter gets hit for 12 damage, after AR, would be dealt 5.
Light armor EV: 10 + (wis or dex) + magic bonus
Heavy armor ev: 5 + (str or con) + (dex or wis)
(special: in heavy armor the (dex or wis) bonus cannot be greater than the characters str mod.)
Heavy Armor gets an AR 1 bonus per magic plus rather than +1 to EV
|Armor Type||AR||EV Bonus||Strong||Weak||Other|
|Cloth (L)||0/0||+7||–||–||+2 EV v. Bludgeoning|
|Leather (L)||5/3||+6||–||Slashing||+2 EV v. Bludgeoning|
|Hide (L)||5/4||+4||–||Slashing||+2 EV v. Bludgeoning|
|Light Shield (L)||0/+1||+1||Piercing||–||–|
|Heavy Shield (H)||0/+3||+3||Piercing||–||–|
|Tower Shield (H)||-2/+5||+0||Piercing||–||–|
(H) – Heavy
(L) – Light
Strong: damage types that the armor ignores min damage. ar basically becomes dr for this damage.
Weak: damage types that the armor is weak against bypass all damage reduction
