Glacier Mail

By:

This ice-crafted armor is a gift from the three-aspected Goddess of Water to her chosen.

A delicate-seeming suit of armor, this beautiful plate mail is crafted all of ice and water. The stiff plates that protect are a translucent silver, carven with a thousand tiny blossoms. Where chain would connect the plates in a traditional suit of mail, there is suspended flowing water, colored the deep blue-green of the winter sea.

Born from the ice found at the heart of the Glacier, this armor was gifted to Celsia Frostblossom by Crysheth, the Avatar of Ice, when they found eath other frozen within a glacier in the northlands.

Magical Properties:

A divine gift to a new-made Knight of the Water Goddess, the Glacier Mail provides appropriate protection for the chosen. The ice and water are as strong and durable as steel plate and chain, respectively, and are deeply enchanted to provide further protection.

Most notable, however, is the deep chill that the armor radiates. For those without mystical protection from the cold, the touch of the Glacier Mail is painfully cold. Further, it is not uncommon for this chill to work its way into the weapons it fends off, making normal, and even masterwork, weapons brittle and fragile over the course of a fight. Further, the chill will seep into the wounds of the wearer, numbing them, and making them forget the pain of the wound for a time.

Why was the Glacier Mail gifted to this woman? Was she supposed to become some kind of a high priestess of the Water Goddess, when she received a gift of this much power?

It's a good item, though it's a bit too powerful to my taste. Wouldn't this plate be too cold to wear even for the wearer? Or doesn't it somehow radiate the cold inside, or doesn't it touch the wearer?

And I'm not a medical doctor, but I suppose that if a big wound gets too much cold, it must have side-effects, doesn't it?

Still, a good item.

Go read the character submission that goes with this. It explains it.

As I commented on the Frost Thorn, this item seems as much artistic as it does a functional magical item.

Magic should have side effects, both expected and unexpected - fortuitous and deplorable. Expected side effects add anticipation, while unexpected ones increase the drama of the scene. The result can be comedic or dire, it dpends on which circumstances work best for your game.
