This +1 half-plate is emblazoned with holy script and religious iconography.
The wearer of raiment of the shining crusade gains a +2 sacred bonus on saving throws against channeled negative energy and to resist negative levels. When worn by a character with the smite evil class feature, the armor sheds light like a torch at all times.
A wearer with the smite evil class feature can expend one use of this ability as an immediate action to create a defensive ward around an adjacent creature, granting the target a deflection bonus to AC and a resistance bonus on saves equal to the wearer’s Charisma bonus against attacks and effects originating from creatures with an evil alignment. This effect lasts for 1 round.
