Asp Hide

Armor (hide), very rare

Made of multiple sets of tanned and magically preserved snake hides, this set of +2 hide armor shifts in color from black, brown, green, and red.

While wearing this armor a +1 bonus on saving throws against poison, and once per day as a bonus action the wearer can cause the armor to sprout tiny pricking fangs that weep asp poison until the beginning of the wearer’s next turn.

Any creature that strikes the wearer with a natural weapon, unarmed strike, or spell with a range of touch, or attempts a shove or grapple against the wearer is pricked by the fangs.

This deals no damage but exposes the attacker to asp poison (see sidebar).

While the fangs are extruded, the wearer can spend his action to extract one dose of asp poison and apply it to a weapon with no chance of poisoning himself. This poison lasts for 24 hours or until the weapon is used to make a successful attack.
