I’ve seen stuff like this before, with men in full harness climbing stairs and doing some basic gymnastics.
It does make me think that the DEX penalties for wearing certain types of armor, especially very, very expensive and tailored plate harness, are overstated.
I wonder if, instead of a maximum DEX bonus for Medium armor and no DEX bonus for Heavy armor, if instead you just took a DEX penalty for wearing it, perhaps equal to the equivalent bonus you’d get from having the minimum STR needed to wear the armor (round up if you must).
So full plate, with its STR 15 requirement, would simply be -3 to DEX, or if you want, negate up to +3 in DEX boost). So your DEX 18 or DEX 20 warrior might still get a boost for being jumpy like a ferret on meth.*
This would, of course, muck about somewhat with Bounded Accuracy. A STR 15, DEX 20 guy with plate and shield would then have AC 22 instead of 20, and with magical armor and/or shields, that could potentially get pretty high.
Not sure I’d mod the game, but I saw the first video and thought (as I often do) that the notion of how limiting properly fitted armor is really could use with more dispelling.
Not that some armors aren’t limiting. But good ones that you pay a fortune for? Probably not.
