This +2 spiked splint mail is fashioned from hacked-off chunks of tanned hide and held together by humanoid spines. Used by orcs, these sets of armor are seen as a status symbol, and are adorned with trophies from slain foes, such as wayfinders.

This armor grants its wearer the constrict ability, dealing an amount of damage equal to 1d6 + the wearer’s Strength modifier.

The vertebrae of the spines adorning the backbreaker mail are sharpened, acting as +1 human bane armor spikes.
