Silk SwathesAlthough the desert does not support silkworms, some inhabitants of the waste have access to this exotic fabric through trade. This sheer material is perfect for clothing in hot environments, and it can be used for armor. Silk swathes are nothing more than elaborately wrapped cloth strips. Air trapped between layers allows the skin to respire, while the material itself absorbs moisture readily and dries quickly. The wrapped layers are surprisingly effective against weapon blows. However, donning this armor is time-consuming and difficult, taking as long and following the same rules as for donning full plate. Silk swathes do not impose the usual -4 penalty on Fortitude saves against damage dealt by hot environments and on Constitution checks to avoid heatstroke.
