I. Introduction

Wow, this is gonna be short.  I wrote the guide on weapon stats, so why not write one
for armor stats.  Yup, that's all there is to it.

All of the stats come from the end of the Armor.syd file on the Vagrant Story game
disc.  I just decoded them for you.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
II. The Stats

Here is a listing of the base stats for shields and armor.  Pick a material and armor
or shield and then add the material modifiers to the base stat to get the final stats
for that item.  Sound easy?  Good.

The numbers following each record represent the data from the file for that item.  
Hereis a list of what I assume each column to be.  The strength, intelligence, and 
agility are all verified by the game.  I think column two may refer to a visual model
file or something similar as only the shields have a number there other than 00.

Data Columns:
1. Armor Number
2. Possible Visual Info...
3. Armor Type
4. Always 00
5. Strength
6. Intelligence
7. Agility
8. Always 00
