A Dwarrowhelm Golem armor.

Golem Armor[edit]

This ultra-heavy armor hails from the Azer nation of Dwarrowhelm, combining the esoterics of alchemic golemcraft with armorsmithing. A phalanx of warriors in Golem Armor will not fall to a thousand spears.

  1. If the character has some help, cut this time in half. A single character doing nothing else can help one or two adjacent characters. Two characters can't help each other don armor at the same time.
  2. The wearer must have help to don this armor. Without help, it can be donned only hastily.

A suit of Golem Armor consists of a reinforced leather underlay to which thick black iron interlocking plates are firmly riveted. The golem armor consists of breast-and-back with interlocking pauldrons, faulds, cuisses, vambraces, gauntlets and boots. The inside of the armor is treated with various alchemical circles that aid in motion. Even so, a minimum of 19 Strength is required to wear this armor without penalty. Not meeting this prerequisite makes you count as nonproficient with the armor. Golem armor is always masterwork; price and benefits are subsumed in the above statistics.

The golem armor provides the following benefits when worn, on top of its general protective capabilities:

  • Golem armor counts as a masterwork skill tool for the Intimidate skill.
  • You gain DR 5/-.
  • You have 50% fortification against critical hits. This counts as the fortification quality at an inherent +2 bonus that the armor has despite being non-magical. As such, increasing the fortification quality of this armor requires enhancing it to magic armor first, costing an additional 12,000 gp (turning it into a +1 armor of moderate fortification) or 32,000 gp (turning it into a +1 armor of heavy fortification).
  • You gain a +4 bonus on any Strength-based checks.

Craft (armorsmithing and alchemy) DC 34. Market Price 8,500 gp.
