Light Armor

Light Armor was the traditional armor worn by the samurai in Rokugan, worn by those who did not engage in combat regularly. It provided a fair amount of protection while not comprimising mobility too much. Infantry and scouts would often favor it over Ashigaru armor, as it had thicker armor plates. [1]

Appearance Edit

Light armor consisted of protection for the torso and head, leaving the limbs bare or minimally covered. [2] The lower portions of limbs were left unarmored for ease of movement. A helmet or reinforced mask could be worn with it, but were not considered integral parts of the armor.[citation needed]
