Bio-material Armor is a variety of very low-tech armour that consists of a reinforced coat, faced with plates, fitted with shoulder plates and groin guard. The armored coat is worn with shin guards. The coat and shin guards are all made from cured skin, membrane or plant fibre, faced with pieces of bio-polymer, bone, exo-skeleton, horn, tusk, or hard plant material. Bio-matter armour costs around Cr150 but is often home-made.
