An ingenious invention (though incredibly time consuming to make), chainmail provides the highest level of protection without resorting to rigid steel plates. It consists of a series of interlocking metal "rings" which essentially forms a metal fabric that is woven into a suit and worn over leather armor.

Crafting mold[edit | edit source]

The crafting mold for chainmail requires 3 metal ingots. Other than normal iron ingots, one can alternatively use:

  • Mithral: DC 15, armor check penalty reduced to -2, arcane spell failure down to 20%, weight cut by half, maximum dexterity bonus increased to 4, treated as light armor
  • Darksteel: DC 15, 5/- acid damage resistance
  • Adamantine: DC 20, 2/- damage resistance
