Campaign of the Month: June 2012
+2 Winged Ironguard Studded (horn) Leather Armor (5 armor bonus)
Market Price 85,000
This armor has magical leather wings which may be used to fly as long as the character is not carrying a medium or heavy load. This armor also grants a +5 bonus to fly skill checks. The armor otherwise acts as an overland flight spell, granting the wearer a fly speed of 40 with good maneuverability (an additional +4 to fly checks).
The wings cannot be concealed or disguised and still be functional. Any attempt to hide them gives a penalty of −20 to any disguise checks, for the wings will flutter and move on their own, even if bound. Likewise, the wings will not function as long as the wearer has the grappled (or worse) condition. Finally, this armor also is considered to take up the shoulders slot, so the wearer may not utilize magical cloaks or capes.
Caster Level: 9th; Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, overland flight ; Market Price: (+60,000gp).
A character wearing this armor is able to activate the lesser iron ward (see below) spell three times per day for 9 continuous rounds for each use respectively.
Caster Level: 9th; Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, lesser iron ward; Market Price: +3 bonus.
Lesser Iron Ward
Level: Sor/Wiz 5 Components: V, S, M Casting Time: 1 standard action Range: Touch
Target: Creature touched Duration: 1 round/level
Saving Throw: Will negates (harmless) Spell Resistance: Yes (harmless)
The creature targeted by this spell becomes immune to nonmagical metal. Items made of metal simply pass through the creature as if it were incorporeal. Enchanted metal, spells and spell-like abilities, and supernatural effects all affect the target creature normally. Other attacks delivered by metal items (such as poison on a blade) affect the creature normally. If there is metal inside the creature when the spell expires, the creature and the metal both take 1d6 points of damage as the metal is ejected from the body .
This spell has become a favorite among the fey. It renders even cold iron ethereal and thus ineffective against them. However, if an iron item is still inside a fey recipient of this spell when it expires, the fey takes twice the normal damage (2d6) before the body rejects the metal.
Material Component: A tiny wooden shield.
This armor was a gift from the hamadryad Kelindria as a reward for proving their loyalty and tenacity.
Note: The lesser iron ward spell is faerie magic. It is possible for a non-fey to be taught the spell, but highly unlikely. This armor is incredibly unique, distinctive to say the least, and recognizable by most fey.
