Heart of Oak

Price 61,460 gp; Slot none; CL 13th; Weight 15 lbs.; Aura strong transmutation


The heart of oak is a +1 moderate fortification verdant greenwood scale mail, with roots wrapping around a faintly-glowing gemstone in the middle of the chest. It’s treated as light armor for all purposes except proficiency. It has an arcane failure chance of 10%, a maximum Dexterity bonus of +5, and an Armor Check Penalty of -1.

When the wearer uses the verdant property to anchor himself in place, he may choose to transform into an oak tree (as tree shape). The transformation lasts for 1 hour or until dismissed, as described in tree shape. Furthermore, once per day he may speak a command word to transform into a powerful treantb1, as plant shape III. This transformation lasts for 10 minutes or until dismissed as a standard action by the wearer. While transformed into a treant he is treated as rooted for the purpose of the armor’s verdant property, even if he moves.
