    So her b00bz0rz aren't in terrible pain? Hopefully the dude has a little room in his crotch so his b@LLz0rZ aren't smooshed to oblivion, either.

    Incidentally, I just gave away all of my passwords.

    Do heavy Armour and guns actually go together? I thought it became useless once guns became a thing.

    Maybe it's special armour. Like body armour. You know that thing police use to not die from being shot. It's made from magic metal. Or something!

    And besides, she has both, so the armour protects her from blades while the gun shoots dead the bandit in no armour

    Not necessarily as long as you still can get in melee range ;) Also there are other factors like effecitve range. It could be very simple guns which don't shoot very far and/or have a huge impact force reduction after a certain range etc. There are plenty of explanations. And if all of them fail there is still magic ;)

    Guns are fairly rare in the setting, according to the devs. If she's got one, it's quite likely she's the only firearms wielder in the room. Also, no - early guns weren't able to penetrate plate very well.

    The guns mean she's probably a wizard hunter. I've always had the impression that early guns against plate were kind of 50/50, but the real advantage was that you didn't have to be a well trained archer to use them. If a plate could be magically hardened or lightened so a knight could carry a thicker plate, guns suddenly become a losing proposition.

    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.

    Not necessarily. If plate can be magically hardened, then you can do the same for guns. Magically harden the barrel so you can cram more powder in and get more punch per shot. Enchant a bullet to punch through things. Just because guns are more overtly technological doesn't mean you can't apply magic to them just as easily. This doesn't seem to be arcanum 2, after all :)

    they wouldn't be? armours are not skin tight you know? unless she is carring d cup (which she would not as a soldier) the chestplate should be flat to deflect blows properly.

    it was a sign of good plate if it was damaged but not penetrated by bullet.

    Amazing. A sexist argument against sexism in games!

    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.

    The bit where you said large-chested women couldn't be soldiers.

    Not really. I mean if you read the article the biggest changes are making it closer fitting across the torso and shoulders so that it isn't so loose and slamming into them, resulting in bruises and less secure equipment. The complaint is that it's too big and doesn't fit. This doesn't lead to 'thus women need armour that's a little looser across the chest' at all. It in fact says the exact opposite.

    It tends to be glossed over, but plate armour and firearms actually coexisted for quite some time. Indeed, a common strategy in the 16th and 17th century was equipping knights in armour with pistols, having them ride up to the enemy troops and shoot them at point-blank range. Once a knight had made use of all his firearms, he would continue fighting with a melee weapon. 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.

    Breasts are mostly fat tissue. a soldier's life is very demanding and having big fat on one chest is not compatible.

    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.

    It says that women have different needs in terms of armor.

    And if you cinch the waist, you emphasize the bosom.
