Re: A question of armour

It's an abstraction of both. A combination of being good enough to avoid/parry what would otherwise be a hit, and having good enough armour to soak some of the ones you can't dodge.

Re: Reading suggestions?

Read it, but once you’ve read it read the Guy Halsall book. He demolishes Morris’ arguments rather impressively (and with better citations and evidence than Morris has for his own work)

Re: The Dux Britanniarum Compendium

Hopefully in the final stretch. I have one more playtest scheduled for a week tomorrow, and this week off in which I am aiming to finish the text, barring the index.
