Lets see
welp thats a great idea
only how about makeing them light weight and anouther type of item to wear
say you can have a arm thing on and a scabard on the same arm too ect ect ect
thus doubling the equiptment one can wear
also instead of haveing to get the sword from the scabard why not have it 
just soo you weild it and it automatically comes out of the scabard
thus makeing it one action to weild the sword
I am not gunna code it
but if this inspires someone else let me have the code please
I am running bpl8 at the moment
