Riding Plate[edit]

Riding plate is a heavy protective full plate with better protection on the joints and tougher, thicker armor. However, it is very heavy and not mobile at all. It's intended to be used on horseback, where the mobility options are not a problem.

  1. When running in heavy armor, you move only triple your speed, not quadruple.

  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.

Riding plate reduces your speed in half, rather than the normal 3/4rd reduction for heavy armor. In addition, standing up from prone is a standard action. On the other hand, they do not add their armor check penalty to Ride checks.

Riding plate has straps on its legs, allowing the user to hook to a mount's saddle securely. By locking themselves to their mount they gain a +8 bonus on any checks made to knock them off their mount. Locking or unlocking a rider is a full round action that provokes attacks of opportunity.

Craft (armorsmithing) DC 19. Market Price 1750 gp.
