Battlemage Jaes' ability reads:

Battlemage Jaes may equip Runes even while wearing Armor that would ordinarily prevent it.

Chain Mail reads (more or less):

Whenever you use a rune, you must spend 1 Fatigue.

So does Jaes actually have to pay fatigue on this armor? If so, his ability sucks

"Whatchu talkin' 'bout, Willis?"

Chain mail says "+2 Armor. Your base speed is reduced to 4. You cannot equip Runes."
So when playing with Jaes just ignore that last sentence.

You're perhaps thinking about the Ghost Armor? But that isn't actually an Armor, it's a Rune, so when playing Jaes you can equip both Chain Mail (Armor) and Ghost Armor (Rune).

The Ghost Armor should say "Other - Rune". You can see a list of all shop items (and pretty much anything else you need) here http://www.descentinthedark.com/_s_/shop_items.php

Chain mail reads as I told you in the Greek translation. Seems like one of the translators took a liberty in allowing spellcasters to use these armors if they wish... Which made confusing questions with Jaes' ability

That is indeed very strange. Hopefully nothing else has been played with like that.

See http://www.descentinthedark.com/ for a list of the skills and objects in English. Just in case you think there are other translation issues.

Since your english is obviously more than adequate you can check most cards at http://www.descentinthedark.com/index.php.
An excellent resource even if you don't need to check translations!

Edit: err, yeah, what Ed said.

I am curious if it's a translation liberty, or perhaps the translation was based on an earlier version of the game, perhaps the beta version...

I don't see anything else out of the ordinary now, but i'll keep an eye on this. Thanks all
