Price: +2,000 gp
Property: Armor or shield
Caster Level: 5th
Aura: Faint; (DC 17) transmutation
This item looks particularly clean and bright—in fact, it almost seems to shine with its own light.
A suit of armor or shield that has this property always appears brilliant and gleaming, even in filthy or squalid conditions, though it doesn’t shed any useful light. Attempts to paint over or obscure its finish do not diminish its brightness.
While wearing commander armor or carrying a commander shield, you gain a +2 competence bonus on Diplomacy checks, and each ally within 30 feet of you (not including yourself) gains a +1 morale bonus on Will saves. However, the shiny finish makes you so noticeable that you also take a –5 penalty on Hide checks (in addition to the normal armor check penalty).
Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, eagle’s splendor.
Cost to Create: 1,000 gp, 80 XP, 2 days.
