- "Upon closer examination of this breastplate, you realize you didn't mar the warding rune beyond recognition. In fact, unlike the other breastplates, the spell that maintained the integrity of the giant skeleton is mostly intact, so much so you could either cast the runes as a spell or copy them into a spell book and keep it as part of your arsenal. Either casting or copying the spell will destroy the breastplate, however."
Usable only by mages, this item:
- Casts the 1st level mage spell: Shield, protects the recipient from attacks and gives a bonus to their saving throws.
- Allows mages to copy the Shield spell into their Spell Book.
The rune can be used once before it disappears.
