Mage Knight: Machination
These gaudy bracers gleam with a hint of magic.
These arm guards are useful for the traveling magician. They surround the wearer with a minor but tangible field of force, providing her with a + 1 deflection bonus to AC. In addition, they grant the wearer resistance to some types of spells, in the form of spell resistance 13. Both bracers must be worn for the magic to be effective.
Faint abjuration; CL 1st; Craft Wondrous Item, shield of faith, spell resistance; Price 12,000 gp; Weight 1 lb.
A favorite of rich Atlanteans, these trinkets bear the taint of the distant Magestone mines. The crystals are processed to remove almost all of their dangerous magical energies, but a glimmer of force remains to grant the wearer a subtle resistance to spells—as well as a sparkling attire. —Maleficius
