Helmets (often truncated to simply "helms") are armour for one's head. Without a helmet, serious injury to the head - and therefore certain death - can occur in the heat of battle.

Numerous types of helmets have appeared throughout the ages, and hereafter follows a list of all known variations:

[edit] Lore

Helms often match body armour in material and strength, but variations, such as offensively spiked helmets, are available.

- from The Book of Lore (Ultima V)

An unprotected head is sure to be the target of any shrewd opponent's sword. Helms are available in a variety of leather and metal forms, and one should be worn at all times when combat seems likely.

- from Compendium (Ultima VI)

For any man who has ever enjoyed a good thought or feeling, a helmet is a wise investment for his kit. In any town of note, helmets can be found in a variety of materials.

- from Journal (Ultima IX)
