Prerequisite(s): Shindroid, composite plating racial trait.
This plating is counted as a light armor and grants a +5 armor bonus to Armor Class. It also incurs a 15% spell failure, a -1 armor check penalty, and has a +5 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.
