Armored Plating (3.5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Armored Plating [Racial, Birth]
You were created with more armor than other crystalforged.
Prerequisite: Crystalforged, 1st level only.
Benefit: Your armor bonus is +8 and you gain damage reduction 2/adamantine. Because of the added weight your base land speed is reduced by 10 feet, and you are considered to be wearing heavy armor at all times. You have a +1 maximum Dexterity bonus to AC, and incur a -5 armor check penalty from the heavy weight of your armor plating.
Normal: Without this feat a crystalforged has an armor bonus of +2.
Special: Unlike most feats, this feat must be taken at 1st level during character creation. Crystalforged characters with this feat do not gain the benefit of any class feature prohibited to a character wearing heavy armor.
