Armor concealing garment

The official GemStone IV encyclopedia.

Armor concealing garments are scripted clothes that can hide a character's worn armor when others look at them. They are distinct from clothing that can be worn over or under a suit of armor without hiding it. Some armor concealers are partial, meaning they can only hide armor of certain subclasses. A concealer that covers the torso and arms will be able to hide a breastplate but not a suit of full plate armor. Full armor concealers are typically not found off-the-shelf, but select merchants may be willing to add a hood.

Analyze

The grey tweed overcoat is designed to hide soft leather, rigid leather, chain mail and plate mail armor which covers torso, arms and legs.

This garment should be designed in such a manner to convey that ALL these areas are completely covered.

You carefully analyze your grey tweed overcoat and sense that there are some alteration restrictions.  The overcoat can have either a long or a show description.

Any outer garment noun may be used for armor concealers as long as they are loose fitting and fully cover the appropriate areas of protection (tunics do not cover legs, so they may not cover leg worn armor, a shawl would not be appropriate at all, etc.).

Armor concealers that cover the head MUST have a hood/cowl in the base (15/15/15) and in any long descriptions.

Armor concealers can be made out of any material that is not see-through.

Racial clothing nouns are approved as follows:
Ruhan ~ This garment is knee-length or shorter and should not have a hood, so it cannot cover armor with leg or head protection.  This concealer cannot be pocketed.
Toque ~ This noun is approved for any armor and may have a hood.
Cotehardie ~ This noun may be used but must clearly be an outer garment that falls to the knees (so it cannot cover armor with leg protection) and is not-tight fitting.  It should be used as an elven outer garment, not a gown.
Apotl/Apotla ~ These are fine for concealers, but since it is a waist-length cloak, it only covers torso and arms.
Atanika/Ataniki ~ These nouns are approved for concealers but should not have a hood.

You can tell that the overcoat's pockets could not possibly get any deeper, and you might be able to have a talented merchant lighten the grey tweed overcoat for you.

Inspect

You carefully inspect your grey tweed overcoat.
It is estimated that a stone grey tweed overcoat threaded with glints of platinum can store a fairly small amount with enough space for several items.
The overcoat can be worn around the chest.  The overcoat appears to serve some purpose.

You determine that the grey tweed overcoat is an armor concealing garment that will hide soft leather, rigid leather, chain mail and plate mail armor which covers torso, arms and legs when it is worn.
