Nope, they sleep in it in the field.
(This is probably incorrect.)
@Ajunta Pall, it makes sense for the ones in full plate, since they couldn’t get it on quickly enough if they get attacked in the night. But if they just have gamberson and mail they could take it off, though that armor wouldn’t really need to be removed as it would basically amount to a thick coat with a chain net shirt over it. But ultimately idk if it’s true or not
There is historical evidence that warriors would sleep in their armor if they are expecting a night attack or an early morning battle. In "The true chronicles of Jean le Bel," from the early 14th century, there is a mention that English forces trying to intercept Scottish raiding parties had to sleep in their armor in the field because they never knew when the Scots would show up.
@Ajunta Pall, in 5e DnD you can’t gain the benefits of a long rest if sleeping in armor, that’s all I know.
@megamanx181x, I would say "they" could be used as a singular gender nuetral pronoun, but even then the "average night" as he asked would have been male.
Some days I just want to buy a suit of armor, hop on my bike, and just drive away into the sunset
Don't judge me
Excuse me but the proper terminology is doff.
Me: *Looks around* “....Black.”
