Orcish ring mail is a type of body armor. When unidentified, it appears as crude ring mail. It is the starting armor for an orc barbarian.

Orcish ring mail is as heavy as regular ring mail and provides MC1, but has a base AC bonus of only two, one point less.

This is a low-quality item, providing only two points of protection in spite of its weight, and most players do not bother with it. Even leather armor is superior to it: it gives the same protection for less weight, and does not interfere with spellcasting.
