I am reading the Goblin Slayer light novel. In it the main character wears leather armor over plate or chain to both stack his AC and to confuse his (not very intelligent) enemies into hitting where leather is vulnerable but plate or chain is not.
Can one wear multiple types of armor and get an AC stack?
I found a few other Q&As that don't address this issue:
- Can a chain shirt be concealed under normal clothing?
(that question asks about concealing armor under clothing; I'm asking about stacking different armors)
- Can multiple types of armor be stacked?
(that Q&A is about Exalted, not D&D 5e)
- Can you wear a Mithral Chain over Snakeskin Tunic and have their effect stack?
(similarly, that Q&A is about Pathfinder, not D&D 5e)
