I fight heavy and most of my body is covered by a single layer of trigger, or
just sweat, and those arrows do sting like hell.  In terms of padding most
Ansteorran heavy fighters wear less protection than the light fighters.  Yes,
we have metal joint protection and those heavy helms, but there's an awful lot
of skin hanging out.
