The rider dismounted smoothly, his polished helm catching the last rays of the sun. Seemingly unconcerned that he was surround by bandits. With a practised grace, he moved, his body suddenly surrounded by light, drew and threw a javelin into the nearest one of the ruffians; the javelin and bandit both burst into flames. After that the battle was swift with the bandits losing heart and fleeing leaving three of their number behind.
The rider offered a prayer for the spirits of the two departed and took the one survivor to the local authorities.
These helms are made of alloyed brass decorated with swirling patterns of inlaid gold and silver. They are lined with several layers of padded linen. They are lighter than they appear being comfortable in all weather.
The helm provides a +5 competence bonus to Animal Handling for chariot driving and to Ride checks. Three times a day, as a free action, the wearer can give any missile he launches the flaming burst quality. While moving, the wearer is sheathed in an aura of opalescent, then also extend to any mount or chariot he may be riding and the passengers there of. This light deflects incoming ranged attacks, missile and magical. Each ranged attack directed at you, your mount or your passenger which requires that the attacker to make an attack roll has a 20% miss chance. However, other attacks that simply work at a distance are not affected.
Note that some of these helms allow the wearer to give the missile they launch icy burst, shocking burst or even both the keen and thundering enhancement instead of flaming burst. But the effect is set when the helm is created.
