Q: If I've looted myself a nice shiny plate mail helmet but I don't want to encumber a forward with plate mail slowness, can I dress him in leather except for the head in plate?

A: Yes.

Q: Will that be somewhere between chain and leather effectively?

A: It's about halfway between a suit of leather and a suit of chain.

Q: Will that slow the orc down?

A: It has an impact, but not too noticeable. The strategy guide (http://www.orcsports.com/strategyguide.html) says it would make your orc 2 minutes 48 seconds slower running 2 miles. [Editor's note: On the other hand, the strategy guide needs to be redone. Some of the stuff in there just isn't true any more.]
