Black Rogue Armor
Favored by rogues, thieves, spies and assassins that operate in dark places, these sought-after sets of black leather armor hail from the Free Cities of Abalon. Superbly light and flexible, this gear allowed the Black Rogues of Abalon to move in darkness without sight or sound as though they were wearing naught but their own skin.

Black Rogue Armor consists of an unadorned jerkin of dyed leather with a skin-tight underlay, combined with padded leggings, belts, light boots and a cowl. Fingerless mitts allow the dextrous wielding of light and thrown weapons. The entire set is a dark blue bordering black that blends perfectly with the darkness of moonless nights. Black rogue armor is always masterwork; price and benefits are subsumed in the above statistics.
The black rogue armor confers the following benefits:
- Black rogue armor counts as a masterwork Hide and Move Silently skill tool.
- You gain a +4 bonus to Fortitude saves against poisons and will never accidentally poison yourself while handling poisons.
- At night or in areas of darkness, you can move up to your normal speed while using the Hide skill without a penalty, and you only take a -10 penalty instead of -20 to hide while attacking, running or charging.
- At night or in areas of darkness, your rogue level counts as 2 higher for the purpose of making and defending against sneak attacks. This includes the increase in sneak attack damage. Under similar circumstances, any non-rogue characters wearing the armor gain the sneak attack of a 2nd-level rogue.
As the black rogue armor is often associated with all manner of mischief, wearing the armor in the open invites distrust. You incur a -4 penalty to any Charisma-based checks (except for Intimidate) while dealing with reputable folks and the general law-abiding populace. Guards and officers of the law witnessing you in black rogue armor are likely to reduce their attitude by one step, or possibly more depending on the local situation (see Diplomacy). On the other hand, with the right people (examples: fences, thieves, black marketeers, members of the underground), it grants a +2 bonus instead. As such, many users of this armor tend to cover it up in public.
