I like these. For once it would be nice to actually have a C-class armor that's on par with the A-class robe of the archmagi.

Warriors mask is a bit high in defense, seeing how a helm is just 1.

Defenses for the mithril scale is higher than any other chest-only pieces. The only difference between regular and mithril variants of armour is the price and STR requirement, DEF is the same.

Well both of these are just a basic idea off of the existing scale, for balance sake though I certainly could see these versions of scale taking up more then one "slot". Especially in the case of the mithril variant.

Im also certainly not against them both being at 5.

The mask was based off of the visored helm but Im perfectly okay with it being just a 1 as well.

basically ultimately the idea is to provide a bit more flavor and to make a logical progression up from the gap between chains/scales/splint and plate I figured that scale would be the best option though to work up from.

I like em. I have a character that would be interested in the mask, especially if it's customizable (different metals used to provide different colors)

Perhaps the mask could be a type of helm? Completely encase the head, instead of using straps to hold it on? Could allow the def mod to remain at 2 like the mentioned helm. Just a thought.

Well done.

The whole idea behind a mask is that its a facial cover, I could think of perhaps a variant with a chain mail covering the front of the neck which might be able to retain the 2 defense however its certainly an idea to toy with.

Course the str req and cost would go up. slightly and the one I did would drop def to 1 and price down.

Roughly speaking this would mean

Warriors mask would be 1 def 200 mhl
Raiders mask would be 2 def 250 mhl
