Full Item Description
This set of full platemail is jet-black in color with wickedly curved spikes sticking out every which way. It is trimmed in a pale silver alloy and has an unnerving prescence about it. The broad chest of the armor depicts a ghoulish figure cloaked in silver shadows with two diminutive rubies serving as the creatures eyes. The grim helm is heavily layered with only small slits for the wearers eyes. Two razor-sharp serrated horns sprout from the helms crown and the gauntlets are wickedly clawed. The armors seems to be almost mist-like silently adjusting to make no noise to the wielders movements.
In an age long forgotten an archlich sat upon his throne and demanded that a new suit of armor be wrought for him and him only. The best craftsman of the palace hurried to perfect the armor. He toiled day and night to finish the piece. On midnight of the thirteenth day he completed it. Bringing it before the master he revealed it with downcast eyes hoping for praise but fearing the scorn if the master was dissapointed. The archlich said nothing but stepped forward and seized the suit of armor. The moment his decrepit hands touched the smooth plates they turned black with evil power and dark energy. The armor seemed to partially vanish,the smith marveled as it seemed the armor had become pure shadow. He watched with anxious pause as he awaited the masters judgement. The master seemed appeased and retreated to his chambers. The master was overpossesive of the armor afterwards and brutally punished those who even thought about touching it. After many decades a pair of young foolhardy gold dragons, Amnstine and Pilourus, attacked the lich. They believed strongly in good and wanted the lich to be stopped. They breathed great flames upon the palace until the angry archlich emerged wearing his now familiar armor. The duel lasted several days neither side giving an inch until fate intervened. Pilourus faltered and was struck down, filled with rage his partner tore the lich apart and burned his very soul from its hidden gem. The armor was destroyed in the battle but many say that the shadows could regenerate and reform. To this day few know the whereabouts of the armor or if it even exists, but rumors do abound.
The armor is said to blend in with shadows granting its wearer concealment to all who wish to find him. Many fear what will happen if a kind hearted soul touches the armor. The armor is tangible but can grant its wearer incorporeality for a very short period of time. Its hideous visage is frightening and unnerving to those faint of heart and the armor is strongly enchanted with protective energies.
