URW Game Encyclopedia description
The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by the key) describes cowls thusly:
Piece of clothing or armour covering the skull and neck (short cowl) and sometimes the shoulders (long cowl). Cowls may either be separate garments or an extension of body armour.
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.
