Abomination Skin[edit]

This unpleasant-looking hide armor is drawn from the bodies of abominations, the things that the Gods don't want you to see.

Baned by clerics and crusaders of many faiths, abominations are terrible creatures that are divine anathema itself. Though exceedingly rare, some particularly God-spurning cults have taken up the practice of weaving the blistery skin of these terrifying creatures into a suit of protective hide armor. Usually possessing an unappealing look and grim colors, this pustuled uneven hide backed by an underlay of leather or a protective gambeson is designed to bring some of this divine anathema to bear against their enemies. The abomination skin is always masterwork; price and benefits are subsumed in the above statistics.

The abomination skin grants the following benefits when worn, on top of its general protective capabilities:

  • An abomination skin counts as a masterwork skill tool for the Autohypnosis skill.
  • You gain rapid healing equal to your character level.
  • You gain a +4 bonus to saving throws against polymorphing, petrification, and any effect that alters your form against your will.
  • Against divine spells, you gain a +4 bonus to saving throws and spell dampening 4. If a divine spell polymorphs, petrifies or alters your form, these two bonuses stack. However, while wearing this armor, you yourself cannot benefit in full from divine magic either. Your own divine magic as well as any beneficial divine magic cast upon you is similarly dampened.
