Black Knight Armor
In battle, the color black symbolizes an unrelenting tyranny and oppression. The black knight is a supreme existence on the battlefield, that drives his enemies before him like whipped cattle. The black knight should never have to look up at a foe, and his name is spoken of in bardsong and frightful folk tales alike. It's the black knight's unshakable might and charisma that makes him seem invincible. In order to express this martial supremacy, a proper suit of armor is needed.

A suit of armor commissioned by a great conqueror, the black knight armor is a magnificent full plate fashioned completely from blackened steel. Oft designed to make the wearer seem larger, with amply sized pauldrons and a roomy breast-and-back, as well as outfitted with a backing of black iron maille, the black knight armor is always masterwork; price and benefits are subsumed in the above statistics.
The black knight armor grants the following benefits when worn, on top of its general protective capabilities:
- Black knight armor counts as a masterwork skill tool for the following skills: Diplomacy, Intimidate and Ride.
- The carrot or the stick; you use them both in equal measure. You do not gain leadership penalties for cruelty or causing the death of followers or cohorts.
- By virtue of Strength and Charisma, you seem unsurmountable and untouchable in battle. You add your Strength bonus to ability checks and saving throws to resist being moved against your will, and you add your Charisma bonus to your touch AC, to a maximum of the black knight armor's AC bonus.
