Gorynych Scale

Armor (scale mail), legendary (requires attunement)

This armor is grafted from the iron-hard green scales of a gorynych dragon, and is crafted with oversized pauldrons resembling dragon heads, with vambraces that appear almost molten. Gorynych scale is also crafted with a full helmet also wrought in the semblance of a roaring dragon’s head. This +3 scale mail grants you resistance to fire damage.

The dragon heads on your shoulders have a limited animation and dim, watchful sentience.

Their eyes are constantly alert for creatures encircling you, so you cannot be flanked by any creature you can see. In addition, when you score a critical hit in melee, as a bonus action you can take an additional attack with one of the dragon heads, dealing 1d6 piercing damage and 1d6 fire damage plus your Strength bonus.

Each of the three heads can be commanded to unleash a 15-foot cone-shaped gout of flame once per day as an action. Creatures in the cone must make a DC 17 Dexterity saving throw, taking 14 (4d6) fire damage on a failed save and half damage on a successful save. If you have not yet used any of the heads’ breath weapons, you can combine the breath of all three heads as an action into a 30-foot cone-shaped gout of flame dealing 28 (8d6) fire damage, or half damage for creatures that make a DC 19 Dexterity saving throw.
