Full PlateThis armor consists of shaped and fitted metal plates riveted and interlocked to cover the entire body. It includes gauntlets, heavy leather boots, and a visored helmet. You wear a thick layer of padding underneath it (included). Buckles and straps distribute the weight over the body so full plate hampers movement less than splint mail even though splint is lighter. Each suit of full plate must be individually fitted to its owner by a master armorsmith, although a captured suit can be resized to fit a new owner at a cost of 200 to 800 (2d4 X 100) gold pieces.
Full plate is also known as field plate.
