No one can make reg. leather breast plate.
Why do you have to be higher level to make GM black leather arms? Is there something special about them?
P.S. Thanks for the choices we have now.
You need rolls of cloth to make leather breast armour of any variety. (Thanks, Rosi!)
So leather hides + rolls of cloth + your dye of choice = leather breast armour.
Got some tweaking to do regarding this. Here is the plan: I will bring original leather back and have it as low level armor, i will then increase the level of the new looking armors.
All the new armors will require cloth.
So far only the leather breast requires cloth (6 rolls, to be precise). GM leather arms and legs still only require 3 leather hides each, Rosina tells me.
Leather Bugs! Whew, now that I read the postings and realized the subject, the title isn't so troubling. I thought there were Leather Bugs crawling through the lands of Oberin, eating leather armor. A leather version of the the notorious Rust Beast! This comment belongs in the "suggestions" thread by now, but it comes from my reaction to the OP title.
What if there were Leather Bugs that ate your armor just like Rust Beasts? What if Rust Beasts and Leather Bugs showed up at the same time? What if they ate robes, too? Naked and afraid? ohhh. Sorry, I don't intend to derail the technical talk. cheers.
