Armor Made of Unusual Metals(Optional Rule)
With the exception of bronze plate mail, it is assumed that all metal armors
are made from a fairly common yet sturdy form of steel. However, this need not
always be the case.
Since this is a fantasy campaign, there is nothing to prevent armors being
made from rare and fantastic metals. Different metals have different properties
which must be taken into account when such armors are used. Table 27 lists several different types of metals and the effects they have on Armor
Class, encumbrance, and cost.
