Heavy duty armour commonly worn by government owned samurai.
Samurai Legplates are the basic leg armour of Samurai . They belong to the Heavy Armour Class and can only be obtained by purchasing them or looting them off a Samurai from the Imperial Lords or United Cities. Looted Samurai Legplates from an Imperial Lords' Samurai will be considered a Faction Uniform.
They severely restrict a character's running speed when worn, but currently provide the best protection for a character's legs as well as partially protecting the stomach.
Samurai Legplates have the Samurai Clothpants as their base model but have additional metal plating covering the legs and lower torso. The metal plating is stitched together by leather and held in place by two thick leather belts. There is an ornate metal belt buckle in the front of the pants and two metal plates sit about butt level in the back.
