FIREARMS AND ARMOR
The era of heavy armor is over with modern ammunition making a mockery of metal armor and shields. To reflect this, while a breastplate or scale mail will still protect you against melee combat and even lower velocity guns (i.e. shotgun or musket) players do not receive an armor bonus from Medium Armor, Heavy Armor or shields against anything that fires cartridge ammunition. This rule does not apply to natural or magical armor.
