Armor Description

Battle Plate

This exotic heavy armor consists of reinforced metal plates, a layer of padding worn under the armor, and a suit of light chain worn between the two. The armor includes gauntlets, metal-shod boots, a heavy helm, and carefully wrought joint guards. As with full plate, buckles and straps distribute the weight over the wearer's body, so battle plate hampers movement less than heavy plate even though heavy plate is lighter.
Battle plate is dwarven armor, so a character with the Dwarven Armor Proficiency feat is considered proficient in its use.
