A few easy questions about armor:

1) Can you use creative abilities to adjust the armor roll? I've found threads that seem to have contradictory answers:

http://www.indie-rpgs.com/forum/index.php?topic=23761.0
http://www.indie-rpgs.com/forum/index.php?topic=23402.0

2) I assume die roll adjustments from wounds (like "-1 to all rolls") apply to armor rolls as well (ouch!)

Hi Ben,

You can't use Creative Abilities on an armor roll. My post from Feb 2007 is dead wrong. I'll go make a note there.

Wound penalties don't apply to armor rolls.

Cool -- the alternative is just cruel.

Also can we add to the FAQ wiki or should we leave that to you? There's at least 3 armor items that should go up there (these two plus how to repair it in refreshment).

Added some to the FAQ, but to round out the official armor questions:

- Can you use Divine Favor to roll additional dice for your armor check (d6 or d8)?

- Can you use Divine Favor to re-roll the armor die?

I think there just needs to be a big note saying "armor is not a standard roll, general rules do not apply"
