RPG Myth Breakers #3 - Stealth in ArmorBromern: ?Every Dungeon Master has heard it before.?
Player: ?I?m going to sneak past the guards.?
DM: ?But you?re wearing plate armor??
Player: ?Hey! I?m a paladin/ninja/thief. I have 17 ranks in covert! I can sneak in armor!?
Bromern: ?Can you really sneak around in armor? Let?s find out! Alacrity!?
Alacrity: ?I?m not coming out.?
Bromern: ?Come on Al. You look great.?
Alacrity: ?This is just silly.?
Bromern: ?I? um? you look great!?
Bromern: ?To test sneaking in armor, we?ve clad Alacrity in plate armor and set up an obstacle course.?
Bromern: ?You might not realize it, but Alacrity is highly trained in stealth and covert ops.?
Bromern: ?In fact, he was once an Army Ranger!?
Alacrity: ?I?m Canadian!?
Bromern: ?A Beaver Hat Ranger, trained in the famous Canadian martial arts, Tym-Hor-Tons!?
Alacrity: ?You?re insane.?
Bromern: ?Al will sneak down these stairs, past the guards at the bottom, over a plank across a moat filled with flesh eating zombie snappers to the treasure.?
Alacrity: ?I am? WHOA!?
Alacrity: ?ARGH! Aaaaaaaaa!!?
Bromern: ?Alacrity? Are you okay??
Bromern: ?There you have it folks! Sneaking in plate armour, not very likely.?
Bromern: ?Al! Get up here and we?ll get you in the chain mail!?
Alacrity: ?Last rites??
