Gaj Carapace Armor

Description: Plate armor is made from giant insect or crustacean chitin, or from the shells of creatures such as chathrangs or rare desert tortoises. Braxats and gaj provide the durable shells used to make mid-level masterwork plate armor. The rarest plate armor is derived from drakes and braxat lords. Armorers drill tiny ventilation holes in chitin-plate armor to make it bearable in all but the hottest weather.
