When a member of the Knights of the Flying Hunt attains full Knighthood (gains three levels in the prestige class), the Nimbral Lords bestow upon that character a suit of this famous glowing glass armor of legend.
Lore: This armor cannot usually be purchased; only the Nimbral Lords and certain powerful mages from Halruaa know the secrets of its manufacture, and the Nimbral Lords typically magically attune the armor to its designated wearer, making it useless to anyone else. (Knowledge [arcana] DC 15)
Description: Storm armor is full plate armor crafted from glassteel (see page 65) that has further been enhanced to glow brightly in various hues of the rainbow, the shades of which are controlled by the wearer. They gain brightness as the wearer's rage or excitement increases, and they become dimmer as consciousness or physical vitality fails.
Prerequisite: Only characters with at least three levels in the Knight of the Flying Hunt prestige class are granted the use of this legendary armor.
Effect: Storm armor is +1 glassteel full plate armor of invulnerability and electricity resistance. The armor also functions as a ring of feather falling (see page 232 of the Dungeon Master's Guide).

Construction: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, feather fall, dancing lights, 29,150 gp, 1,480 XP, 37 days.
Variants: Faithful service and outstanding performance by a Knight of the Flying Hunt can earn him the rank of Commander (ten levels of the prestige class) and more magic augmentations to his storm armor, making it greater storm armor.
