The Armor of Retribution is an artifact armor that appears in EvilHack. It is unaligned and intelligent, and its base item is a set of crystal plate mail.


The Armor of Retribution can only be created by combining The Sword of Annihilation and Ashmar at a forge; it cannot be wished for, and will revert to its base item if left in a bones file.


While carried, The Armor of Retribution grants acid resistance, and is fully indestructible like The Sword of Annihilation; this includes falling off if a character polymorphs into a large monster while wearing it, rather than being destroyed like other body armor. While worn, the Armor of Retribution grants disintegration resistance, extrinsic protection, half physical damage, half spell damage, increases current carrying capacity by 200 aum and maximum carrying capacity by 500 aum, and has a 17 chance of knocking back monsters that attack the wearer in melee.

The Armor of Retribution cannot be made into dragon-scaled armor using worn dragon scales.

Encyclopedia entry

Legend tells of a suit of armor that protects the one that
wears it like no other. So intent in its mission to safeguard
its master, it will actively attack those that try to harm it.
