Armor Bonus

Typearmor lore

Armor bonus is the natural protection afforded by armors. It does not stack. The highest protection is used to determine armor class. Certain metals provide an additional bonus to the normal armor bonus afforded by the armor. A blutium suit of full plate provides an additional +4 natural enchantment bonus. Although it says enchantment, it just means that the bonus is added to the total armor bonus and cannot stack with other natural enchantment bonuses. There are also divine armor class bonuses that come from making an item at a Godforge. Profane bonus is another type of bonus that comes from evil forges or the natural qualities of some creatures. Divine and profane bonuses are another way of getting an increase in armor class.

When determining cost, multipliers are applied from least to highest, thus a suit of Godforge Blutium Full Plate would apply the x5 price modifier to the base armor (1,500 gp) and then the x20 price multiplier for being Godforged. The calculation (1,500 x 5) x20 = 150,000 gp.
