    Wouldn't guns really fuck up plate armor and make it deadlier to be hit?

    While lore-wise, it doesn't make too much sense, I absolutely love that when Altdorf was very unstable in the WAR MMO you could walk around and see skaven taking over houses in the slums and hiding in barrels.

    See, in D&D, armor works like this:

    Heavier armor makes you harder to hit.

    I hate fantasy weapons

    I like fantasy games with guns. I'm half tempted to give some to the ratmen in one of my D&D games, but I think it would cause sour tastes in the mouths of my players.

    Are any of them wearing plate armor?

    The rats or the players?

    either one, really.

    I mean, matchlocks predate it.

    edit: also, fantasy swords are the very worst

    Depends, I mean the term 'bullet proof' comes from shooting plate to show it's proof against guns.

    Well the interceptor has a lot of kevlar on it, but the main protection is the ceramic plate.

    That is not "just" ceramic though - it is a very specifically engineered ceramic, that i would wager is a multilayered composite structure.

    Modern bullets will penetrate steel plate just fine. Now it's true that this is not going to be true for old weapons, but the English had developed armor-piercing arrow tips specifically designed to puncture plate armor.

    Bodkins. They used swallowheads for volleys at mid to far range, but those were to kill lightly armed infantry and cavalry horses - an armored knight isn't much good if he has to haul ass all the way over there.

    Bodkins were for close range with more precise aim, so they could hit the armored knights head on without the bodkins glancing off if they hit at an angle.

    Ceragard ceramic composite armor is a laminated composite of Al2O3/B4C ballistic ceramics with high performance aramid polyethylene fiber.

    Any simple hard material will not stop a bullet - it will basically shatter and the resultant spray of shrapnel proceeds to tear you apart.

    yes, which had much higher terminal velocities than early bullets.

    I just found it retarded that FF7's climax centers around the permadeath of one of the main characters. A main character that has probably died hundreds of times while fighting with you. But no this one time a phoenix down won't work. Just inconsistent.

    At least in FF8 the dude falls off a cliff edge so if something kinda permanent happens there it's understandable. Not being able to find a body to phoenix down? Fine. Having the body right in front of you and not even trying? Fuck you.
