I was playing an MMO the other day – RIFT – Which is a really beautiful game which i like quite a bit. I dont normally play warrior types, but as a wizard i was having problems finding a group because there wasnt any tanks (warriors) around. So, i rolled one, and took it to around level 18. I chuckled. Take a look at the picture – all the way up to level 18 you get to have armour like that. It looks very sexy but the bit in the middle is a bit soft, and the belly button almost acts as a target. Of course as the years go by if they are not too kind to our adventurer there could be a little overhang going on there. Of course you dont want to be wearing that during pregnancy either – you would end up producing condensed milk.
During my obvious ammusement at the inpracticalities of MMO armour i had a conversation with glen at work and he sent me a link to a video – See it here: http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6550847/female-armor-sucks
While looking for a picture of a rift female in armour (because i couldnt be assed to screenshot mine) i came across the following picture some guy had taken of his dog in platemail. Some people really need to get a life!!
