Large splint mail is a type of body armor that appears in EvilHack and Hack'EM. Its default object material is iron.


All giant Samurai start the game with a rustproof large splint mail.

Large splint mail does not randomly generate, but can be wished for. Giant samurai player monsters will always generate with large splint mail.

Large splint mail can be created at a forge by combining two sets of plate mail.


Only giant Samurai can wear large splint mail. While worn, it confers 6 base AC and MC1, the same as standard splint mail. Large splint mail cannot have dragon scales worn over them except for chromatic dragon scales, though dragon-scaled large splint can occur on giant samurai player monsters.


Large splint mail is the only form of body armor that giant Samurai can wear outside of the chromatic dragon scales from Tiamat - they may also find it quite cumbersome to keep their starting mail on as the game progresses. Enchanted mithril large splint mail with an object property may prove a worthwhile early wish or a later forging target for a giant Samurai character, and characters that use it long term may consider either melding chromatic dragon scales into their current mail or taking a desired color of dragon-scaled large splint from a giant samurai player monster.
