of Vile Darkness 3.5
By Monte Cook
This suit of +1 full plate
has four 5-foot chains connected to it at the waist. Each chain has a ring manacle
sized to fit around a humanoid neck. If people are placed in these manacles by either the armors wearer or his minions, the armor is ready to display
its true power. Whenever the wearer takes damage, the captives held by the chains
take half the damage themselves. If the chains hold more than one person, divide
the half damage among all of them. Operating in this armor with chains attached
to other people is difficult. The wearer takes an additional 5 armor check
penalty unless the victims are somehow magically subdued or controlled, such
as by Stupor or dominate person.
If the captives are children, the additional armor check penalty is only 2.
If the captives are subdued or controlled children, there is no additional armor
