Piercing Claw. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 15 ft., one target. Hit: 20 (3d10 + 4) piercing damage. If the target is a creature, the Demise Armor can pull the target up to 10 feet toward itself, and the target is grappled (escape DC 14)

A Demise Armor is a powerful sentient bone armor created by the spell Create Demise Armor and linked to a powerful necromancer. Since it may be created using the skeleton of a bigger creature, its size and HP may change.

It will do its best to ensure its master safety, either fighting separately or protecting them with its own body.

The armor's master may put it on and use it as an armor set, as described next: Entering and leaving the armor works as riding a normal mount. While on it, you count as a singular unit and act on your initiative:

  • Use its movement speed.
  • You can choose between your own actions and reactions or the armor's. You can't cast 8th and 9th level spells.
  • You can use Shadow Stealth.
  • Your AC is equal to the armor's or yours, whichever is higher.
  • You share all your senses, resistances and inmunities.
  • Damage from all sources hits the armor instead of you. If you recieve damage, substract it from the armor's HP. If its HP falls to 0, it's destroyed, you fall to the ground and any excess damage carries to you. As long as the excess damage doesn't reduce your HP to 0, you aren't knocked unconscious.

You can also use spell slots in the armor for further utilities, described in the spell page (Create Demise Armor)
