Armor Description

Stability Weights

Armor equipped with stability weights is much heavier and more solid than regular armor of its type. The wearer receives a +2 circumstance bonus on Balance checks and a +2 circumstance bonus on Strength checks made to avoid being bull rushed or tripped. Stability weights reduce an armor's maximum Dexterity bonus by 1, increase its arcane spell failure chance by +10%, and increase its weight category by one step (light to medium, medium to heavy).
