The Sentinels of Light
Bracers of Armor +2
+2 armor bonus
These items appear to be wrist or arm guards. They surround
the wearer with an invisible but tangible field of force, granting
him an armor bonus of +1 to +8, just as though he were wearing
armor. Both bracers must be worn for the magic to be effective.
Alternatively, bracers of armor can be enchanted with armor
special abilities. See Table 15–4 for a list of abilities. Special
abilities usually count as additional bonuses for determining the
market value of an item, but do not improve AC. Bracers of armor
cannot have a modified bonus (armor bonus plus armor special
ability bonus equivalents) higher than +8. Bracers of armor must
have at least a +1 armor bonus to grant an armor special ability.
Bracers of armor cannot have any armor special abilities that add a
flat gp amount to their cost. Bracers of armor and ordinary armor
do not stack. If a creature receives a larger armor bonus from
another source, the bracers of armor cease functioning and do
not grant their armor bonus or their armor special abilities. If the
bracers of armor grant a larger armor bonus, the other source of
armor ceases functioning.
