Armor & Shield Upgrades


Armor & Shield Upgrades

This supplement provides twelve unique upgrade paths, three each for light armor, medium armor, heavy armor, and shields. This supplement also contains rules for how to use this upgrade system at the table and some balance advice.

There are three new tiers of upgraded armor in this supplement: GreaterSuperior, and Masterwork.

There are also three main upgrade paths: AgileArcane, and Tough.

This supplement aims to provide interesting decision points between the +1 magical armors characters might find on their adventures and their Masterwork armors that they have customized during downtime. In addition, this supplement acts as a gold sink that encourages individual player strategic expression and more options for martial players.

This supplement has been carefully designed to keep with standard game balance as long as you follow the guidelines within. It has also been written for ease of use, and includes advice on how best to incorporate this supplement into your campaign. Also includes quick-reference player-facing tables that show off the various upgrade paths! 

With over 15 pages of crunchy rules for armor and shields, this supplement is sure to satisfy the martial players at your table!

Artistic credit goes to Direquest and Daniel Comerci.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
