Locust Cuirass

Source Pathfinder #81: Shifting Sands pg. 58
Aura moderate conjuration CL 6th
Slot armor; Price 6,565 gp; Weight 8 lbs.


The overlapping leather plates of this +2 lamellar cuirass (Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Equipment 12) oddly feel more like insect chitin than the supple leather they are crafted from. This armor’s lightweight construction gives it a maximum Dexterity bonus of +6.

The wearer of a locust cuirass can take 10 on Acrobatics checks to jump even if distracted or in danger. Once per day as an immediate action, the wearer can summon a swarm of locusts that surround her and support her weight during a fall, causing her to drift slowly down to the ground, similar to feather fall. While falling, the wearer can move up to 5 feet in any horizontal direction for every 1 foot she falls, at a speed of 60 feet per round. The wearer takes no damage upon landing. The effect ends as soon as the wearer touches the ground or after 6 rounds, whichever comes first. If the effect expires while the wearer is still in the air, she falls the remaining distance as normal.


Requirements Craft Magic Arms and Armor, cape of waspsUM; Price 3,365 gp
