A system that works well off of a Fantast RPG that I wrote about 2 years
back, anytime damage gets through the armor, the potential to block
damage is lessened by one point. The armor can be repaired, but once the
resistance reaches 0, it is assumed that the armor no longer exists, or
if it does, it's nothing more than tatters that are worth nothing.

That wouldn't be that hard to code at all once you had all the rest
done... It's just re-coding the hit/miss/damage stuff that's the pain.
