Do heavy Armour and guns actually go together? I thought it became useless once guns became a thing.
Oldschool rpg? I'm waiting for it! I just hope the wizards will have so many spells as in the baldur's gate etc. :D
In the technology page they say something along these lines:
Largely considered complex curiosities, these weapons are not employed extensively by military forces. Their long reload times are considered a liability in battles against foes that are too monstrous to drop with a single volley, foes that fly or move at high speed, and foes that have the power of invisibility. Despite this, some individuals do employ firearms for one specific purpose: close range penetration of the arcane veil, a standard magical defense employed by wizards.

You have to fight fire with fire, you know.
Actually, studies have shown that men and women DO have different torsos. I am sure the US military has already spent a few billion dollars on said research :p
Seriously though, it was in a few of the tech email newsletters I get a few weeks back. A quick google yields http://www.deltaworld.org/internatio...f-vests-women/
The armor probably doesn't need to be THAT pronounced, but it does make very good sense for a bit of a larger bulge in the boobular region for women and a bit of a larger bulge for a man's Grayson.
Cuirassiers are a classic example of this combat style.
Generally speaking, early firearms were too weak and inaccurate to reliably penetrate plate armour. Use of armour didn't decline until the 18th century, when guns became stronger and mobility more important.
a big fat barbarian mother of 5 is a different cup of tea but young slim looking woman would not have big breasts unless she is a princess and got forced recently to become a soldier. even then a bit of squish on breast would not be an issue.
nothing sexist here.
