Navy Cuirass (5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Design Note: This armor is outright better than other medium armor because it's balanced for a setting with renaissance level technology where firearms are readily available. In a normal D&D campaign, it's obviously overpowered and should not be used.

Navy Cuirass[edit]

Medium Armor
Cost Armor Class (AC) Strength Stealth Weight
1,000 gp 14 + Dexterity modifier (max 3) 15 lb.

A navy cuirass is made up of two layers: a light, clamshell-like chest piece of fitted metal that protects both the front and the back on top, and a comfortable layer of padded cloth underneath. Combined, and treated with advanced metalworking techniques, it practically makes you bulletproof. In a renaissance-era setting where agility (or being able to swim) is more prized than putting as much armor as possible between yourself and an attack, it might be the heaviest armor you can expect to find. Think full plate, but for a world where sailing ships are king, not medieval knights.

Special: While wearing this armor, you take 3 less piercing damage from non-magical attacks. This adjustment comes before damage resistance.
