In Spirit of Iron, weapons add Stress after a successful hit. If the attack misses, the Stress bonus has no effect.
|Fists, Feet, etc.||+0|
In Spirit of Iron, armor provides Stress reduction, but may also impair certain skill rolls, especially those involving stealth, swimming, running, and fatigue. Stress reduction is subtracted from the amount of Stress inflicted on the Health track.
**A shield's Stress reduction & impairment is added to that of any other armor the character is wearing.
