    If you were in a battle...

    weird question...If you were about to be in a medieval style battle (i.e. no firearms, around the year 1300) and you had to choose your equipment, theres no real price limit or anything, just be realistic, no ungodly amounts of weapons and all.

    me personally, i'd get a chainmail shirt, some kind of armored breeches and a two handed maul. i'd also have a helmet with a horn on it and another thats broken.

    anyone else?

    This night is wild, so cold and dull, these hearts they race from self control

    Carpe Noctem (because Diem is too bright)

    Blood Angels Wins:6-Draws:0-Losses:5...apparently i'm doing decently for a guy who randomly charges into certain oblivion

    Hmm, toughie...

    Claymore with guard
    Helmet (hat style)
    Chain mail at least
    a dagger as backup
    a buckler

    Hrmm..

    Well, I'd assume that if someone hit me, no matter what armour I'm actually wearing, I'm going to get knocked over - rapiers will penetrate chainmail, arrows can still penetrate platemail, claymores/maces/etc., while not necessarily able to pierce chainmail, will still be able to break all of my ribs upon contact..

    I'd probably go for:

    +Leather Armour (increased mobility, lightweight, will still stop gashes if it's thick enough; especially vs. light swords and daggers)
    +Buckler-style shield (lightweight, keeping with the mobility, able to lock/slap blows away)
    +Lightweight slashing weapon, most likely a shortsword of some sort

    While it's short ranged, the setup is ideal to dash in quick between the larger and slower strokes of the claymores/maces/hammers/axes, etc. and slice them up. If need be, go for the face, which is generally the only true un-armoured area.

    All I need is my good suit, a nice cloak and my mandolin. Maybe evan a wreath of olive leaves, but only on good days.

    I'd probably go with something like this

    Spear
    Chainmail
    helmet
    greaves
    forearm armour (not gauntlets, just plates strapped to the forearm)
    dagger/short sword

    I'd take-

    Leather Armour
    Short Sword
    Buckler
    Backup Dagger

    The leather armour: I'd rather have the mobility to dodge an attack rather than hope my chainmail stops it.
    The short sword is versatile for stabbing, slashing, hacking etc.
    The buckler is handy for warding off attacks, and easy to hold cos it's strapped to my arm.
    The dagger is there incase I lose my sword.

    Realisticly I'll either be dead in a battle, or a grunt, so I'd probably end up in leather armour (as was mentioned earlier) armed with a dagger and a crossbow. I know I don't have the upper arm strength to use one of the real bows with a real draw that they used back then.
    Still... money's no option you say, eh?
    Then I choose...
    Trebuchet.

    *Dodges Trebuchet shot*


    Anyways, time to do things differently!

    Full Plate armor
    Giant Warhorse
    Tower Shield (With a one shot crossbow built in)
    Buster sword (SOMEbody must have made something at least slightly similar back then )
    Mace (Secondary)

    If you got knocked off your horse, you would never, ever be able to get back up. The soldiers would probably swarm over you and stab you to death through the eyeslots of your helmet. That's why I chose light armour
