New Magic Item – Armor of Mars

1 March, 2011

The soldiers of the Republic marched for days and fought almost as long, defending their family and homes from those that would despoil them.

Their faith in themselves, their homeland and their gods instilled their armor with a unique strength that made them even more difficult to defeat on the battlefield.

Armor of Mars

These suits of hard wearing chain mail are also called soldier’s armor.  They are well made and rarely decorated, practical not pretty.

The Armor of Mars is +1 chain mail that deflects the first critical hit that the wearer suffers each day (resetting at dawn) reducing it to normal damage.  While worn, it counts as only half its weight for encumbrance purposes.

When beginning a combat beside five or more other people wearing the Armor of Mars, they all gain a +1 morale bonus on attack rolls and on saving throws against fear effects for the duration of the combat.

Aura moderate abjuration and transmutation; CL7th
Slot armor; Price 4,250; Weight 40 lbs
Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, bless, bull’s strength, cure serious wounds; Cost 2,000 +250 for the armor (+160 xp for D&D)

Notes: A simple set of magic armor that is quite beneficial, especially to a military unit.

This starts the martial theme for the month.
