LeafweaveAs the name suggests, leafweave armor is made from forest leaves, which are then treated with a special alchemical process that makes them as tough and flexible as leather, with considerably less weight and encumbrance.
The arcane spell failure chance for leafweave armor is reduced by 5% compared to ordinary armor of the same sort, due to its increased flexibility. The armor's maximum Dexterity bonus is increased by +1, and its armor check penalty (if any) is lessened by 2. leafweave versions of padded, leather, studded leather, and hide armor exist; leafweave studded leather typically incorporates darkwood studs to make it druid-friendly.
Creating leafweave armor requires a single successful DC 25 Craft (alchemy) check in addition to the normal Craft (armorsmithing) checks.
Leafweave armor costs 740 gp more than ordinary armor of the same sort. It has hardness 2 and 5 hit points per inch of thickness.
