Clothing is any equipment which can be equipped in an armour slot but gives no defensive bonus and does not fall into the Light, Medium, or Heavy armour class. Many serve no purpose beyond decreasing your "looks like a slave" rating when escaping Slavery. Clothing tends to be found as starting gear on new recruits. Some clothing may provide bonuses to Athletics, Combat Speed, Stealth, or Martial Arts.

While clothing items give no stats bonus depending on their quality, the player-crafted high quality items are still identifiable by a slight change in the worded description. Such items are described as "high quality armour", followed by a generic description that cites the creator's name. Only the smiths that are able to regularly craft "Specialist" level gear make clothing with this special description.


There are eight Clothing Headgear options.
