Getting Into and Out of Armor[edit]

The time required to don armor depends on its type.


This column records how long it takes to put the armor on. (One minute is 10 rounds.)

Don Hastily[edit]

This column records how long it takes to put the armor on in a hurry. Hastily donned armor has an armor check penalty and armor bonus each 1 point worse than normal.
