Blademaiden's Armor

The cursed armor that only a shoujo heroine could love!


Light Armor: +5 AC bonus/+5 Maximum Dex Mod/-2 Armor Check Penalty/15% Arcane Spell Failure/15 lb.
Impress Ranks
0: With great power comes great prettiness. This armor has an enchantment bonus to Armor Class equal to your Hit Dice divided by four (HD/4). Additionally, you are enshrouded in a cloud of flower petals which function as a light shield with an enhancement bonus to Armor Class equal to that of this armor. However, any wearer of this armor is cursed, as described below.
4: Garbed in such pretty colors, you effuse congeniality. You gain a +2 circumstance bonus on all Charisma- and Charisma-based skill checks.
8: You’ve become rather adept at using your pretty smile and fancy footwork to make your opponent miss. You gain a deflection bonus to Armor Class equal to your Charisma modifier. This deflection bonus stacks with other sources of deflection bonuses.
13: You’ve mastered the zen art of flower-based defense. You gain DR 1+X/adamantine, where X equals the enhancement bonus of your shroud of flower petals.
18: Your silver tongue is so gifted, your command of subtle expression so superb, and your mastery of the humanoid psyche so thorough that you can actually convince enemies to walk into your attacks. You may use your Charisma modifier instead of your Strength modifier for all aspects of making melee attacks.

Curse of the Shoujo
Any wearer of this armor is transformed into a female of their race, if they are not already one. The wearer’s hair grows to at least waist-length, as well, though it may grow longer if the wearer chooses. If the wearer’s race does not normally have hair, they are transformed into a female of a race that does. Additionally, the character can only communicate in Moonspeak, a language that is incomprehensible to the sane.

The Curse of the Shoujo functions as a normal curse and can be cured by any means that would normally, but cannot be broken so long as the Blademaiden’s Armor is being worn.


Bright, colorful, made from the finest of silks, and with improbably long and fluttering sleeves, this armor pulled off of the gender-bent version of Mirror!Reine is probably more trouble than it’s worth.
