A light suit of platemail, this bronze armor has been polished until it shines like burnished gold. Thinner and lighter than average plate, the hand of delicate, elven craftsmanship is obvious through out, and as such, it is far easier to move in than the average half-plate, its strength deriving from the divine blessings laid upon it, rather than its construction.
When a Knight of Zevarith is offered up to his Lord for rebirth in the Holy Flame, so too are his arms. His sword and armor are anointed with holy oils, and built into the fire that rages first at the knight’s feet, then about his body. As the Knight is reborn, so too are his tools.
Once the Lord of Flame had finished reworking his new servant and his servant’s weapon, He turned His attention to the armor within the fire, and unlike what He found before in man and sword, He was most displeased.
Though serviceable, the mail offered up with the knight was battered and hard used in combat, and sooner or later, the Lord saw, it must fail. With the power of the flame, then, He caused the steel of the armor to melt to liquid, and with a touch of will, the metal itself was reborn from one alloy to another, from steel into bronze. At Zevarith’s command, the metal flowed upwards, into a form not entirely unlike the one that it had previously possesed, but more delicate and fluid in motion. Swiftly then, He wove the flame into the fabric of the armor’s being, and then, in the same heartbeat that He had come upon His servant, He left Searren.
Divinely blessed with the flame, the Inferno Mail protects quite well despite the material of its construction. Should it be damaged in battle, a few hours in a bonfire or larger will easily repair it. Further, when its wearer is injured and bleeding, it will heat up, swiftly and painlessly cauterizing the injury.
Finally, the flame that pervades the mail can be drawn out, replicating the fire that it was born in. For the wearer of the armor, as long as he is a follower of Zevarith, this is harmless, however, for those engaged directly in melee with him, this is often quite disastrous.
