Classes and Armour
First of all I just want say how much I am enjoying the game as I get to grips with it. I had a search but couldn't find an answer to my question. Does armour affect the skills of mages? I am just going off my roleplaying rules where mages are restricted to the armour they can wear. Thanks and keep up the great work. :)

I'm glad you're enjoying the game... and to answer your question, there's no penalty to mages for wearing armour.

Re: Classes and Armour
I could add that there are no direct penaltys, but... mages have usually less strengh/constit, so less encumbrance. Heavy armor are... heavy (obvious ? :p). example: weight: 63, for a splint mail, weight: 103 for a full plate mail.
so, if a mage is wearing an heavy armor, he will have a very poor movement factor, and the same goes for the party !
