Vestments of the Blessed

By:

Those fancy robes are not just for show.

These holy clerical vestments will dismay demons and undead, searing them should they touch them. Against demonic tooth and claw and infernal blade they serve as well as chain mail. Spells and incantations cast by the unholy will be weakened by the divine favor imbued in the fabric. Mortal blades will find mere cloth.

Resplendent in the livery of their chosen god, the wearer enjoys the Grace of their Patron when conversing with the faithful, and when admonishing the faithless.

These boons, however, demand faith, and the wearer must rely on these garments alone to protect them. Deny them by covering them, and the favor is gone. Distrust them by wearing mail underneath, then only by that mail are they protected.

These vestments can be created in a number of ways:

Woven from flax grown in the Holy Temple of Kayee, by the silent priestesses.

Vulgar vestments crafted by simple tailors, but blessed by an Angel or similar being.

Fine fabric with the addition of Saint's hair.

These Vestments could be considered the standard uniform of priests in the higher levels of their Hierarchy - armor and the like being considered the domain of the Paladin or battle-clerics.

Variants:

Of the Damned

The vestments protect against the strong powers of good. They may be further enhanced by adornment with Gems of the Underworld

Power Levels

The degree of protection can vary with the quality of the construction and the holiness of its components. The least may simply inconvenience the fell powers, while the greatest may sunder them,

Rage:

If Rage is applied to the Vestments, powerful positive radiance will be emitted in a 60’ sphere around the wearer, with effects appropriate for your game system (eg, minor healing, turning of undead, etc.)

Other Uses:

These vestments can be used in the production of healing potions if their wearer was slain as a martyr.

The title made me expect a listing of all kinds of different religious vestments, Kuseru-style which would have been fun (miter, etc)

But this is good too. I mean we've all seen variances of these robes before, but it's still a useful, useable, and straightforward, piece.

One nagging thought is--though they demand "faith" to function properly, that doesn't seem much of an impediment or mental obstacle to the "faithful"...in a world where gods are real. And once a wearer sees them work...one time.

I was hoping for much much more when I read the title. As it is this is a solid and simple item. Not over over-done and not under developed and it can definitely be tweaked to any use as per needed.
