Here is another item I have converted over to Pathfinder 2 from the Jade Regent Adventure Path. It are currently available in all three games. This armour uses the O’Yoroi as a base and is provided as an example of the base item before enchantment.

O-Yoroi – Rare Item 5


  • Heavy Armour
  • Price: 170 gp
  • AC Bonus: +6
  • Dex Cap: +1
  • Check Penalty: -3
  • Speed Penalty: -10 ft
  • Strength: 15 – Bulk: 3 Group: Composite
  • Weapon Traits: Bulwark, Flexible

Note: Wearing the item gives you a +1 to intimidation checks, and is a unique set of armour that has its own story to tell, which you get to be part of. Very few of these armours are ever made, as few samurai ever reach the heights of fame to be allowed to wear them. Wearing one without authority is a capital office in all Tien lands.

Armour of the Armadillo – Unique Level 14

(Invested, Magical, Transmutation) – 4,045 gp

This +2 Resistant Greater Fire-Resistance Cold Iron O’Yoroi Heavy Armour has it should poultrons in the shape of an Armadillo with ruby coloured eyes.

  • Armour Potency +2: Your armour class in increase by 2.
  • Cold-Iron: A creature with a weakness to col iron that critically fails an unarmed attack against a creature in cold iron armour becomes sickened 1. A creature with weakness to cold iron becomes sickened 1 while it wears the armour.
  • Energy-Resistance: You have resistance 12 to cold, 10 to fire, and 5 to electricity.
  • Fiendish Defiance (Fiend): (GG100) +1 to AC vs celestials and oni and resistance to cold of 12.
  • Repository of Knowledge (Mind): (GG102) Expert in three lores to be determined. Dimension of Nightmares, North Pole, Oni?
  • Resistant: You have +1 to all saving throws.
