  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.

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.
