Once worn by a group of warriors that stole the souls of their slain enemies. Every part of this armor seems in some way designed to bring harm to those around it. However, due to this heavy emphasis on offense in its construction, the breastplate itself is lacking in terms of protection compared to other, more conventional plate armors. The armor of thorns is fashioned from crude black iron and standardly contains armor spikes. Both the armor of thorns and its spikes are always masterwork; price and benefits are subsumed in the above statistics.
The armor of thorns grants the following benefits when worn, on top of its general protective capabilities:
- Armor of thorns counts as a masterwork skill tool for the Tumble skill and for grapple checks. The armor's armor check penalty does not apply to Tumble checks.
- Enemies attacking you in melee with a non-reach weapon provoke attacks of opportunity from you, but they may only be taken with your armor spikes.
- You gain the benefits of the Blade Rampart feat, but only with respects to your armor spikes.
- You may make a free attack with your armor spikes against any enemy you tumble past, but only once per round per individual enemy. If you tumble through a square occupied by an enemy, you get a +4 bonus to the attack roll.
