Large splint mail is a type of body armor that appears in EvilHack. Its default material is iron, and it can only be worn by a giant Samurai. It provides MC1 and a base AC bonus of 6, the same as standard splint mail.


All Giant Samurai start with a rustproof large splint mail, and are the only kind of player giant that can start with body armor.[1]

Large splint mail does not randomly generate, but can be wished for, and may be found in the bones of a Giant Samurai or of another player that has looted such bones.[2] Giant samurai player monsters will always generate with large splint mail.[3]


Large splint mail is the only form of body armor that giants can wear, outside of chromatic dragon scales from Tiamat - but only giant Samurai are capable of wearing them, and it will not fit any other player giant. Giant samurai themselves may find it quite cumbersome to keep worn as the game progresses - enchanted mithril large splint mail may prove a worthwhile early wish for them.
