On page 14 of character creation, a cleric’s armor is listed as Any. But on page 20 the level benefit for a cleric is the ability to wear leather and chainmail. Maybe a 1st-level cleric will never get plate and gets that at a later level? Just curious which is correct.
Clerics can wear plate.
On their pates.
Note: they still start with leather, but they can wear plate if the find/steal/buy it.
