Gnomish Battle Plate
Gnomish Battle Plate is a testament to gnomish engineering and ingenuity. Though bulkier and heavier than full plate of the same size it comes equipped with an arsenal of secret compartments for weapons and other gadgets. Customized for the wearer, they commonly have a shield that can fold out of the arm brace, built in scabbards for various weapons, and automatically reloading shoulder-mounted crossbows. While gnomes closely guard the secrets of its construction, they have been known to build suits of it for non-gnomes who have proven themselves true and trusted allies.
