Would a taxidermied jaguar make decent armour?
The question was closed without explanation, and I am making a Meta post hoping to find out why.
Questions along the lines of "would this material make decent armour" have been asked time and again.
- Leaf-based clothing: Practical? Historical? Fictional?
- New Age Armor Materials
- How effective and viable would bronze full plate be?
- How would metal cloth affect armor design?
- Would keratin, spider silk, and bone make good bio-engineered armour?
- If it could be shaped, would chitin from giant insects make decent body armor?
- Human-leather Armor: Effective and Practical?
- How effective would wooden scale armor be in a medieval setting?
- How would aluminium work as medieval armor?
- how well would a magical scale armor-strength cloak work as armor?
- What would be the most practical way to use a dragon's scales as armor?
- Would armour made of spider silk work?
I am having a hard time figuring out why mine is so different from them.
One bit that perhaps confused people is that I mentioned some specific points about what makes the armour possibly suitable or unsuitable. Those being its resistance against the weapons found in the Aztecosphere, the strength of the skull, whether the suit would last long, and how well it would fare in the tropical climate. I gave those to show my research and to invite answers to disagree with any of my conclusions. The core question found in the question title did not change.
I am open to being proven wrong in my assumption that the jaguar armour question is similar to all the other exotic armour material questions. I ask questions, both here and on the non-meta site, because I want to become correct, not because I want my existing opinion proven correct. But I cannot become correct if I am dismissed without explanation. So please tell me how the jaguar question is different from the twelve questions here linked so that I can improve it.
