To be more precise, if the initial bite manages to break the skin, that soldier is fucked. Flesh wounds caused by latching on and shaking don't cause it, though, so all you'll have to deal with is the mundane threat of having every artery in your leg torn to rags. ...Yay?

Oh, and two caps + helm doesn't work anymore. :( Just thought I should point that out if you didn't already know. I have no idea why he changed it.

Worry not! On top of covering the torso, arms, and lower body, chainmail even protects the entire head for some reason.

No, like, the entire head.

The Holistic spawn Wrestler strikes You in the eye, but the attack is deflected by your *iron mail shirt*!

Nope. Mail only has [UBSTEP:1] and [LBSTEP:1], meaning it covers the body, upper legs, upper arms and throat. You might be thinking of [UBSTEP:MAX], which applies to robes, dresses, shirts and coats. Also, there's a glitch where the [UBSTEP:MAX] and covers the extremities of the lower arm and head, but not the actual lower arms or the head. Meaning it protects the eyes, mouth, ears, etc, but does not block headshots. It also protects fingers, but not the hand.

I got bored one night and read a lot.

...? I very vividly recall reading multiple combat reports of a Spawn biting someone in the face only to have it bounce off their mail shirt...

OH CHRIST

Aw... well, I'm sure you'll find it at some point, right? Don't throw out the pic just yet. =P You can upload it whenever you find it, and I'll throw it on the front page. I'd make a pic, but I'm horrible with humans/dwarves...

That reminds me... SolPyre, how is that picture coming along?


Mr Frog - I'm pretty sure mail never covered the face... setting it to [UBSTEP:MAX] makes it go upwards, like Mitchewawa said, covering everything but the eyes and mouth (and possibly ears). Somehow those body parts stick through. Like, literally, they're above the mail. The head beneath the eyes is still protected.

What I said was they DO cover the eyes, nose and ears. Just not the head.

Okay, I've caught a bit of a break today. My classes tomorrow are pretty light thanks to a water main break in the city supply, so I'm going to marathon DF today. Hopefully I'll be able to clear up the rest of my year, repackage the save, and hand this hellhole off to someone else.

IF anyone has any questions that my cursory checking of this thread has not answered, this would be the time.

Codyorr wanted to know about his dwarf. You know - what jobs, etc. so he could write some journal entries.

Alright, done with fall. This write-up is going to be fairly short and crappy (It was done over three different computers), but it will at least allow me to move one. Working on it now. As soon as I find the txt file that has my notes for the start of the year.
