Abridged History of the 10th Age
Armor of Shadows
Armor used by the Ashblade assassins to help them stick close to the darkness; These types of armor were first created during the Moon War when the Ashblades ranged across the elven nations. At the height of the Moon War, the Ashblade high commander was slain by a team of wizards from Silversong. In reaction, the mages of the Ashblade order crafted twenty of these suits of armor and gave them to their best assassins – within the week, Silversong was without leaders.
RULES: Shadow Armor grants AC 4; it carries no penalties to thieving skills and grants +50% to all attempts to Hide in Shadows, as darkness is preternaturally drawn to the wearer.
