Paladin's Plate[edit]

This beautifully emblazoned armor is a staple of the proud paladins and crusaders of the highly religious northern kingdoms. It is crafted with care, regarded with admiration by the populace, and worn with an absolute pride that won't allow it to be easily tarnished.

  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.

This suit of armor includes gauntlets, greaves, large pauldrons with a mantle or cape, heavy leather boots, a visored helmet, and a cuirass decorated with the symbol of the deity that the paladin serves. This symbol acts as a holy symbol and can be used as a focus for divine spellcasting. A paladin's plate is always masterwork; price and benefits are subsumed in the above statistics.

The paladin's plate provides the following benefits when worn, on top of its general protective capabilities:

  • You get a +2 competence bonus to all Charisma-based checks.
  • If you worship the deity whose symbol is emblazoned on the chest of the armor, you gain a +1 sacred bonus to all saving throws. This effect radiates out to any allies within 30 feet of you that also worship the same deity.
  • If you possess a divine spellcasting class, your casting-relevant ability score counts as 2 higher for the purpose of determining the number of spell slots or spells prepared.
  • You may use the cantrip light at will, making the holy symbol on the armor glow with a white radiance.
