Astonishing ACKS – Armoured Caster House Rule

I think I’m going to soften my stance on human arcane casters in armour. How does this sound…

  • A human magic-user with unrestricted armour selection may cast arcane spells while wearing non-metallic leather scale (or equivalent; AC 3 max).
  • A human magic-user with a broad armour selection may cast arcane spells while wearing leather armour (or equivalent; AC 2 max).
  • A human magic-user with narrow armour selection may cast arcane spells while wearing hide & fur (or equivalent; AC 1). (Probably “soft leather” or “cloth” armour.)

Under no circumstances can a human caster wield arcane magic while wearing metal armour. A shield also interferes with arcane casting (but can be dropped or stowed pretty easily).

    This house rule suggests a new proficiency:

    Armoured Casting: The character can cast arcane spells while wearing any non-metallic armour they are proficient with (up to AC 3 max). He may also sheathe his weapon(s) and/or stow his shield without having to give up an opportunity to move or cast a spell.

    I’ve updated the Warlock class to take advantage of these new guidelines.
