Armor Encumberance

A knight moving through the forrest wearing full plate armor will be well protected but they will also move slowly and make a large amount of noise. We interpret this with the following movement speed adjustments based on the type of armor worn.
  • Halflings and Gnomes suffer an 8% medium armor encumbrance movement penalty or a 15% heavy armor encumbrance movement penalty.
  • Humans, Elves, and Half-Orcs suffer a 10% medium armor encumbrance movement penalty and a 20% heavy armor encumbrance movement penalty.
  • Dwarves have no armor encumbrance penalties (as specified by the D&D 3.5 edition rules).
