Glossary: For your ease of enjoyment and so I do not have to define armory terminology every time I use it within a work, and so others may have a reference if they wish to use certain terms, I have included below a small glossary for your use. Most of these are paraphrased for Wikipedia, but at least it means you don't have to hunt them down yourself. Notations of 'outdated' terms are ones I used to use but later found through further research to be an inaccurate or incorrect use of the term. (and being the lazy bum I am, rather than sift through documents to change them, I have put them here).
Gorget: The (generally high) metal collar worn to protect the neck.
Cuirass: The armor used to protect a knight's torso, often is used to singularly reference the breastplate/backplate combination.
Pauldron: Armor designed to protect the shoulder (and sometimes extending to back or chest), often domed and sometimes also possessing lamés (pieces of sheet metal coupled with larger plate armors that are riveted or connected via leather strap to provide flexible protection). -Outdated: Epauleon
Gauntlet: Armored gloves, often extending to protect the forearm.
Vambrace: Armor designed to protect the forearm.
Couter: Armor designed to protect the elbow, can be simply a bent or sculpted plate (see Sain's official art) or articulated joints (Wallace)
Poleyn: Armor designed to protect the knee.
Greaves: Armor designed to protect the shin and lower leg, sometimes extending to the thigh. Full Greaves are inclusive of protection/enclosure of the back of the leg.
Base: Cloth Military Skirt, often attached to a doublet (Seth's official art) sometimes as a detachable plate-mail skirt (Wallace)
Tasset: Segmented sheet metal skirt
Cuiss: Armor designed to protect the thigh (specific definition tentative, but used of the singular plates hanging from character's belts over their thighs)
Womanizer: One who engages in many casual sex affairs with women
Scoundrel: 1. A dishonest or unscrupulous person
2. A rogue, a person whose behavior one disapproves of, but is nonetheless likable or attractive
For those of you who write Sain, get your terminology right. Fine if a character calls him the former, but an objective narrator should not unless you are already implying or supporting this through other means.
