    My first Iron Heroes... er, umm... Hero!

    Okay, I did this quick and have not absorbed all the rules. But take it as a point of discussion and as an example of one of the character classes.

    Class: Armiger
    Level: 2

    Str 16, Dex 12, Con 18, Int 10, Wis 12, Cha 10 (I used a 32-pt buy)

    BAB +2, BDB +1

    Hps: 27
    Defense = 10 +3 (shield) +1 (trait) +1 (Class BDB) +1 (Dex) +1 (feat) = 17
    Passive Defense = 10 +3 (shield) +1 (trait) = 14
    DR: 1d6+1/magic

    Saves:
    Fort +6, Ref +3, Will +3

    Attack = Warhammer +5 (1d8+3, x3)

    Traits: Tough as Iron (+2 Con), Stout (+1 Def)
    Feats: Armor Mastery 1 (+1 armor DR), Armor Mastery 2 (25% crits fail), Shield Mastery 1 (+1 shield bonus)

    Class Abilities: Master Armorer, Tough as Nails, Armor Pool

    Skill Group: Athletics +8

    Skills: Craft Armor +9, Handle Animal +3, Heal +6, Listen +6, Ride +3

    Equipment: Heavy Steel Shield, Banded Mail, Warhammer

    Awesome. The Armiger really is the tank.

    Very cool. Quick question though, what kind of penalty is the armiger going to take on his Athletics SG with all that armor - same as in D&D?

    -2 for shield and -6 for armor. So the same as D&D. There's an armor mastery that allows you to reduce that some.

    Thanks.

    Does the chain shirt still exist? Mithril and adamantine? Any other exotic materials?

    Yes, mithril and adamantine are available. Didn't see other materials.
    If you ever find yourself tempted to retort "And in other news, water is wet...", try to resist. This is the go-to quip of the obtuse.

    Cool characters guys.

    I just would like to point out that the Iron League, the upcoming official fan website of Iron Heroes, will include a "Characters" section where fans can submit actual characters, PCs or NPCs, that could be used for the game.

    Aside of Characters, any type of encounters, adventure seeds, ideas and advice, articles, pieces of fiction, anything that can help others discover IH and use it to its full potential, would be a great asset to the site.

    For your submissions, you can write to lieges@iron-league.com

    Cheers,
    Odh/Ben

    There are actually only 7 armors in the game. Padded, Leather, Stud Leather, Scale Mail, Chainmail, Banded Mail, Plate. Because of the change from AC bonus to DR, there really probably don't need to be more armors than that.

    There are actually shields which give defense bonus of from +1 to +4.

    Damn, I loved chain shirts! Just the right combination of AC, unrestrictive movement, low skill penalties and allowing for a decent dex bonus. Mithril shirts were the best!

    There are actually shields which give defense bonus of from +1 to +4.
    My guess is though you're going to be pretty hampered carrying anything that grants more than a +2 bonus... right?

    Cheers!
