Legion-Warding Raiment

This reinforced breasplate of red jade was crafted for one of the earliest commanders of the Realm’s Legions, a fearless warrior who knew the fledgling empire would grow best if its strength was not spent needlessly. As the master of this armor commands his forces, their battle-fervor feeds Essence into the artifact, manifesting as an aura of flame that protects and inspires those who serve its master.

Prerequisites: Battle-Fury Ignition

The wearer of the Legion-Warding Raiment draws on the Essence of war, igniting his anima in a bonfire that inspires and protects those under his command.

Friendly battlegroups are inspired by the flames of the wearer’s anima, and add the wearer’s Essence to all attacks and to rolls to resist rout. If the wearer is a Dragon-Blooded, his anima no longer harms those under his command.
