A electric resistant composite material which has been crafted into a solid whole, resistite is a potent defense against electricity, and a potent destroyer of air-based creatures. This material is actually two materials, the actual resistite stone and strips of copper wiring which criss-cross its form. It is dull gray, and when subject to electromagnetic activity its wires glow brilliant gridmarks of light over its surface. The stone has a faint acidic oder and irritating to the skin in long-duration contact, so the interior of armors are always padded appropriately. It is formed of of both stone and metal, but its metal components are so minor that it does not count as metal armor for the purposes of effects and abilities which rely on it.
Any weapon primarily composed of metal can be made as a resistite weapon. They are particularly effective against creatures with the air subtype, dealing an extra 5 points of damage to such creatures. Resistite weapons count as acid damage for the purpose of bypassing regeneration when beneficial. Weapons made of resistite gain a 10% discount on the Terran, Corrosive, and Corrosive Burst enchantments.
Armor can also be made with resistite. Such armor usually appears heavy and dense, with large blocky shapes. It is however no heavier than steel. The armor grants electric resistance which has the unique property of stacking with other forms of electric resistance. Light armor gains electric resistance 3, medium armor gains electric resistance 6, and heavy armor gains electric resistance 10. If the electric resistance of the creature ever exceeds 35 points, they gain electric immunity instead. Armor made of resistite gain a 10% discount on any enhancements which grant electric resistance. Creatures with evasion wearing resistite armor may use the evasion ability against electrical damage, even in heavy armor. Shields count as light armor for the purposes of benefits.
Resistite is so costly that weapons and armor made from it are always of masterwork quality; the masterwork cost is included in the prices given below. Thus, resistite weapons and ammunition have a +1 enhancement bonus on attack rolls, and the armor check penalty of resistite armor is lessened by 1 compared to ordinary armor of its type.
Resistite has 8 hit points per inch of thickness and hardness 8. Against electricity, its hardness is 15.
