    A mask would be ok. I could add it, although I'm not sure if oriental masks (the only I know of being used in military affairs) were used as protection or simply as fear-factor.

    The helm and helmet are not different, at least from what I know. The two words are so common though that I decided to add them both so you can find a Knight's Helmet of Vision and a Broken Helm of the Giants.

    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    That's it, when I'm out in the field the next couple days, I will not be wearing a hardhat, I will be wearing a Helm of Engineering +5
