In the words of David Williams;
Really, there is no fundamental difference between the OSRIC version and the AD&D version. I just reduced the weapons on the table to display only those with stats in OSRIC, which has fewer weapons than AD&D, primarily a reduction in polearms. When calculating the table, I made the following assumptions:
(1) The AC TYPE column on the original AD&D table referred to armor ONLY, not lesser armor + shield.
(2) The difference between AC 10 and AC 9 is the effect of a shield, and that effect should be transferable to heavier armor types.
(3) Since AC Type 2 could ONLY be plate + shield already, I kept that value rather than interpreting it with assumption 2 above.
