Magic Item Monday - Crystalline Breastplate & Flint Thorn Dagger

Crystalline Breastplate
Aura: strong abjuration and evocation (if miracle is used) CL: 18th
Slot:armor        Price: 50,000 gp         Weight: 35 lbs
This breast plate is carved from a single piece of smoky white quartz crystal, and glimmers in the light. Bronze screws affix leather binding straps to the crystal. When the wearer dons the breastplate, over the next several minutes, her skin hardens and bleaches. Facets appear gradually, and soon, the wearer’s body is almost indistinguishable from the crystal armor she wears.

While wearing this +3 Light Fortification Breastplate, the wearer’s body turns to living quartz crystal. The wearer gains Damage Reduction 10/magic, and becomes immune to electrical damage. However, the wearer becomes brittle though hard. The wearer suffers double damage from Bludgeoning attacks, and the armor’s Fortification quality does not protect against critical hits caused by bludgeoning weapons.

Construction Requirements: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, Stoneskin, Wish or Miracle
Cost: 25,000 gp

Flint Thorn Dagger
Aura: moderate necromancy  CL: 10th
Slot: weapon   Price: 11,000 gp         Weight: 1 lb

This crude dagger has been crudely knapped from indigenous flint, and one end has been wrapped in simple brown leather bands to form a rudimentary hilt. Unlike other flint knives, this one appears fragile and poorly balanced. Jagged chips of flint seem to fall constantly from the weapon, though the weapon’s cutting edge and mass never changes.
           
The Flint Thorn is a +1 wounding dagger. Whenever the wielder of the Flint Thorn Dagger scores a critical hit, a jagged piece of flint breaks off in the wound. This flint shard works in conjunction with the dagger to carve ever larger chunks from the squealing victim. While this flint shard remains in the target, the Flint Thorn Dagger’s critical threat range increases to 17-20 against the target. A flint shard can be removed with a DC 15 Heal check or any amount of magical healing.

Construction Requirements: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, bleed, Creator must possess at least one critical feat.
Cost: 5,500 gp
