Armor on SWmud is of several types; the type that a piece of armor is determines what other armor it can be worn with. The possible types are:
- body armor (or just "armour")
You can't wear two pieces of the same type.
Note that some pieces of armor cover more than one area, and are therefore of multiple types. For example, stormtrooper armor covers everything but your head, and is therefore of types body armor, pants, gloves, and boots.
Lastly, there may be pieces of armor that do not fit any of the above categories, though these are rare. Bandoliers are an example.
