Legacy of the Forlorn
Armor of Fallen Leaves
This mystical armor was sewn together from the leaves of the great Soarwood Trees and is a truly amazing site to behold.
The armor is +2 wild plate mail and when activated conveys upon the wielder an effect similar to gaseous form. The leaves on the armor break away and swirl around as if tossed about by a light breeze, and the wearer’s body and items become freely able to move about as the wind. This ability is usuable once per day, plus one additional time per day for each other piece of Aerandir’s Regalia the wearer owns.
Aerandir Telrúnya was a grand and wise druid—one of the greatest druids to have ever lived—from the early days of the elves, long before the age of darkness. The stories of his many deeds are grand tales still told around campfires and chronicled in many books; for he was a true champion of the forest. Uncountable young elves received their training under his kind tutelage and rose to greatness themselves. But like all living creatures, even powerful druids can not hold off the twilight forever. When death finally claimed Aerandir, thousands of elves attended his funeral, a great many of whom, former apprentices mostly, eagerly anticipated taking ownership of the powerful artifacts he carried in life. But during the funeral, a mysterious creature appeared before the body, holding its hands out as it spoke, “As per his wishes, the body of Aerandir will be taken to the Green with us and his Regalia shall only return to the elven people when they are needed most.” With that, both the creature and Aerandir’s body vanished. True to its word, over the centuries various items of power have been given to chosen elves to wield for a time before being taken back into the safekeeping of the forest.
The armor was said to have been crafted for Aerandir by his first wife, a young elven druid who called the Soarwood Groves her home.
