Everything you can wear can be attributed to a layer, a sort of virtual slot where you can fit a certain number of items.


Every time you try to wear an item but can't because you are wearing another item, these two items are in the same slot. Most layers can only fit one item, but some slots can contain more.

Such worn items can be armours, scabbards, clothing, containers or jewellery.

Items that are held like weapons and shields or just carried can also be said to be in a layer of their own. The primary purpose of those special layers is not to describe what individual items fit in but rather to specify how many items they can contain, what type of items can be held, etc.

The layer names are arbitrary, usually named for some items within it or their purpose. This means that the name of an item might not always match the layer slot that it actually fits in - for example, a chainmail miniskirt actually fits in the suspender-belt slot since it conflicts with those items, not the miniskirt slot. Also, some pieces of armour or clothing occupy multiple slots, such as the offler-headed mask, which counts as both a helm and a mask.

Each layer covers particular parts (or zones) of your body, or none at all. You can find out which zones a given items covers with the coverage command. When you're hit in combat in a particular zone, items covering it will be damaged.

Note that you can only have up to 50 items in your immediate inventory (worn, held, or carried), so it's not actually possible to have every slot entirely full.

  1. Headbands cover the head.
  2. This doesn't take up the same slot as a hair clip.
  3. Only while the visor is lowered.

Some scabbards to check:
