Armor class represents a combination of a character's ability to dodge and parry attacks. The lower the armor class, the greater the chance that the character will sustain no damage in an attack.

Armor class may be lowered by increasing the thickness and toughness of your skin, and by wearing all available pieces of armor. An armor class of 10 is normal for an unarmored human.

AC represents the amount an item will improve armor class. For example, if your base AC is 10 and you put on a grey cloak (AC 1), your current AC will become 9.

Items with a golden background are artifacts.
