Prerequisite(s): Shindroid, Composite Plating racial trait.
This plating is counted as a heavy armor. It grants a +8 armor bonus to Armor Class and a damage reduction bonus of 2/adamantine. The character also incurs a 35% chance for spell failure, a -5 armor check penalty, and a +1 maximum dexterity bonus. Plating is considered weightless for determining the shindroid’s encumbrance. Plating may be enchanted as magic armor, though the shindroid must be present at all times during the process. This also replaces the composite plating racial trait.
Special: You may only select this feat at 1st level.
