Armor is a generic term for anything that can be equipped with the WEAR command in a location other than the HELD position. Most armor provides Armored Defence. Armor may provide other bonuses as well. Armor refers to anything worn, including clothing, jewelry, hats, and stones floating over your head. For limb replacements, see Limbs

Some armors can also contain items of particular types. For example, a belt may allow a character to sheath weapons in it. Bracers and boots sometimes allow dagger-class weapons to be stored in them.
Items can cover a single wear location or multiple wear locations.
Armors have a layer value, with 0 equating to normally worn outerwear (shits/pants/shoes). If an armor's layer is more than 1 point higher than what you are currently wearing, then you may wear it OVER your current item, but may only receive the effects from the top layer. For example, if you are wearing a shirt at layer 0 that provides 5 armor and the light spell, if you put a layer 2 jacket on that provides 6 armor (and no other affect), your armored defence would improve by 1, and you would lose the light affect until you took off the jacket.
- Persistence of magical affects while wearing multiple layers depends on how the item was made.
- Items made with the Magic Item Spell will persist through multiple layers
- Some world items will not persist through multiple layers.
- Armors can have negative layers.
Adding Wiki Armor Entries
This page is for listing all armors in CoffeeMUD. There are several guidelines for placing items on the wiki:
- Omit any leading articles for describing the item, such as "A", "AN" or "THE". This will help facilitate searches so that not all items end up in the A or T indexes.
- Please do not list the MOB or ROOM where the item can be found. Listing the AREA is fine, so that players can explore areas for themselves to find the items.
- Similarly, for learning recipes, only provide the skill type and the resultant level.
- For all items that fit the armor category, use the Armor Template to create the item.
- There are instructions on how to use the template within the body of the template. Do not modify the template itself.
- Add this category to the bottom of the page, as well as an ARMOR(WearLocation), ARMOR(Level#) and ARMOR(MaterialType) category for future categorization pages.
