URW Game Encyclopedia description
The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by the key) describes hauberks thusly:
A coat made of mail or lamellar. Hauberks cover the shoulders, thorax, abdomen, hips groin and thighs. Long hauberk is lengthened to cover the knees and also has short sleeves to protect the upper arms. The skirt is usually split to facilitate mounted use.
The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by thekey) describes mail (armour) thusly:
Interlocking metal rings, usually half an inch or less in diameter. Mail may be butted, coiled or rivetted, these considerations are reflected by armour quality. While mail is a superb defence against edged weapons, and reasonable against the point, it does little to reduce force of a blow, and may be driven into its wearer's flesh. Because of this, leather or wool garments are usually worn underneath.
