A large, loose-fitting, wide-sleeved outer garment made of light cloth. Robes easily adjust to fit humanoid bodies of any size. Habiliments of this sort offer only a little protection against physical harm, but their generous cut does not hinder evasion from attack or the proper performance of thaumaturgical gestures.

"CLEOPATRA: Give me my robe; put on my crown; I have
Immortal longings in me"

-William Shakespeare, _Anthony & Cleopatra_, V, ii, ca. 1605.

A robe is the lightest body armour in the game, providing 2 base AC with no EV penalty. Many classes start the game with one, including most casters. Moreover, robes, animal skins, and dragon armours are the only types of body armour that spriggans, ogres and trolls can wear.

Robes can carry many different egos, including rare and valuable ones such as archmagi and resistance. There are also artifact robes, including unrandarts ranging from the sublime to the notorious.

It takes 3 turns to wear or remove a robe.
