At E2, I was a squishy Freeborn physick.
I’m acquiring some pieces of plate and chain… assuming I can move in it (I’ll try skirmishes on Friday and see how I cope; also now working on fitness to help cope with weight and cardio). Still good for a Freeborn Corsair PHYSICK?
I don’t want to be on the front lines… I also don’t want to look like a target, because of no armour.
But I do think about a) being Freeborn with plate and chain; b) ‘could I swim in this?’ because corsair. But I am draughir, and we can be practical… but maybe I’m being paranoid (also draughir trait).
ETA: my ‘plate’ is the splint-style bracers and greaves (Mytholon’s “Ragnar”) atop canvas padding; and a chain shirt over a canvas gambeson. I am looking at the torso plate “Persian/Char-a’ina” from Epic Armoury.
