Once one decides to pursue armoured combat, then there are many resources on fashioning armour.
What is Authorization?
An Authorization deems the fighter safe for combat. In Ealdormere, this entails knowing and understanding the rules of the list, fighting while calling all blows (good and light), fighting while under stress, fighting on their knees, fighting with their off hand, and finally a bout taking all blows and dying defensively. If one is able to pass this test, then they are authorized for combat in Ealdormere.
