The simplest eponymous possession, Armor is a bearable possession that limits the number of wounds a Man takes in a skirmish. In this way, Armor functions similarly to Gimli's Helm (1R15) , King's Mail (4R284) , or Swiftly and Softly (4C321) (outside of Towers sites 1 through 5). Armor effectively prevents damage bonus minions or skirmish wounding actions from killing a companion that is not exhausted. Note that Armor functions differently to cards such as Mithril-coat (2R105) or Armor of the Citadel (11U55) , which only remove damage bonuses.

Wound prevention, such as Sapling of the White Tree (9R35) or Intimidate (1C76) only prevents one wound and Armor prevents each wound after the first, so a character bearing Armor would still be wounded even if the Free Peoples player used a wound prevention card in a skirmish (as explained further in Rules and Clarifications).

Strengths and Weaknesses[edit]

Synergizes With...[edit]

Strong Versus...[edit]

Weak Versus...[edit]


In a scenario with wound prevention (such as Sapling of the White Tree (9R35) or Intimidate (1C76) ) and skirmishing a damage bonus minion, the use of the wound prevention only prevents the first wound from being placed. Because the wound was not placed, the next wound from the damage bonus is checked (and not prevented by Armor). Thus, even while bearing Armor, the Free Peoples player would need enough wound prevention to cover each intended wound, not just the first wound placed.

Additionally, note that Armor prevents Boromir, Bearer of Council (9R+31) from applying wounds to skirmish, making him quickly self-corrupting.
