Antipodists are proficient with simple weapons, but not any armor or shields – no here’s an interesting cincher – they double the point costs of their loci when wearing armor they’re not proficient in, but are otherwise not hindered by them – meaning that you’re only a feat away from armored casting with these guys – sans […]
