Cannonball Breastplate

Armor (breastplate), very rare

This lumpy, rough-hammered breastplate provides a +2 bonus to AC as well as resistance to fire. It is forged of sooty back metal spiderwebbed with tiny cracks that glow orange in dim light or darkness.

Once per day as a standard action, you can compress the cannonball breastplate into the form of a cannonball, which is launched at an opponent within 500 feet as if it were a shot from a cannon.

Ranged Weapon Attack: +6 to hit, range 600/2,400 ft., one target. Hit: 44 (8d10) bludgeoning damage) fired by you. The cannonball dissolves into smoke after dealing damage.

When you activate this ability, smoke pours forth from the cannonball breastplate and momentarily forms the semblance of a cannon, exploding as the cannonball is launched into a cloud of smoke in a 10-foot sphere that spreads around corners, and its area is heavily obscured. It lasts for 1 minute or until a wind of moderate or greater speed (at least 10 miles per hour) disperses it. Any creature adjacent to the wearer takes 11 (3d6) points of fire damage and 11 (3d6) points of bludgeoning damage and is deafened for 1 minute; a successful DC 14 Constitution save negates deafness and reduces damage by half. Your body and gear are turned to smoke in this explosion, leaving you trapped in gaseous form for 6 minutes, though you can reform your body, by succeeding on a DC 14 Constitution save at the end of your turn. The cannonball breastplate reforms on you when your body does.
