Giant's Nail Scale Mail

Source Pathfinder #93: Forge of the Giant God pg. 16
Aura moderate necromancy CL 7th
Slot armor; Price 9,200 gp; Weight 30 lbs.


This thick coat of +2 scale mail is crafted from waxy scales of varying sizes with a sickly, jaundiced color—the grime-stained fingernails of dead hill giants. Any creature of the giant subtype who comes within 30 feet of giant’s nail scale mail must succeed at a DC 16 Will save or take a –4 penalty on attack rolls and saving throws for 1d4 rounds. This ability functions as a gaze effect. It is a mind-affecting fear effect, but it does not stack with other fear effects to create stronger fear conditions. A giant who succeeds at the saving throw is immune to this effect for 24 hours. If a giant rolls a natural 20 on its saving throw, it becomes enraged by the sight of the armor. The giant gains the effects of the rage spell for 1d4 rounds and is compelled to attack the armor’s wearer for the duration of this effect.


Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, fear, rage; Price 4,700 gp
