This seamless piece of semirigid ectoplasm is bound to the bearer’s torso, covering from his shoulders to his waist. The plate, once bound, has a faint metallic sheen and may, upon impact, briefly crystallize about the incoming force, granting the bearer a 25% chance of negating a sneak attack or other precision damage. The plate, however, hampers movement and imposes a -2 Dexterity penalty on the bearer. This penalty cannot be removed while the plated torso remains bound.
