Royal plate is always masterwork and often highly decorated with elaborate gilding and etching. The suit of plate includes a pair of masterwork gauntlets, heavy boots, a visored helmet, a reinforced layer of padding and extra mail that is worn underneath the outer plate. When worn, the suit functions as a masterwork tool for Diplomacy, Intimidate and Ride.
A suit of royal plate must be crafted by a master armorsmith (with at least 10 ranks in the associated skill) and individually fitted to its owner. A suit may be resized for a new owner at 1/4th the cost of the armor itself. Unfitted armor has an armor check penalty, armor bonus and maximum Dexterity bonus each 1 point worse than normal.
A wearer with the appropriate exotic armor proficiency increases the armor's armor bonus and maximum Dexterity bonus by +1 and reduces the armor's armor check penalty by 4. Additionally, such a proficient wearer requires no help donning or removing the armor.
