Hiyo,

So, I'm wondering what happens when you gain/lose gear on a hunt which affects your armour point totals.

In the rules you determine your armour value when you depart. But if you lose your boots due to a hunt event, what happens? Do you reduce your armour in the feet by the armour value of the item? Do you reduce your overall armour value if this breaks up a set bonus? Does it stay the same?

I'd imagine that an ability which requires a full set of armour (e.g. rawhide survival ability) no longer works.

Anyone have any info or thoughts on this?

Definitely a very interesting question considering RAW (Rules As Written). I'm not sure if it's covered somewhere in the book. There might be a hole there

But by logic of what is happening I think you should loose armour point on that location and you definitely loose the set bonus as you no longer have a set.

And that makes me think about the opposite - if you gain armour, would you add the armour points when it is gained? There are all kinds of weird opportunities for this kind of thing to happen.

Odds of getting an official answer are slim at the moment

If you lose a part of your armour, it's gone immediately.

Thanks for your input Michael - is there anything i can refer to rules wise, or is your answer based on your intuition? My instinct is the same as yours, but I am curious to see if it is reflected in the rules.

Apparently this is addressed in the rules, a helpful soul on the kickstarter page pointed me to this:

Pg46 bottom left corner, "If armor gear is lost during the hunt or showdown, update your armor points to reflect this loss immediately"

+1 understanding for me now!
