Black dragon scale mail is a type of dragon scale mail. It provides disintegration resistance.

Black dragon scale mail can be produced from black dragon scales, which might be dropped by a black dragon.

While BDSM might be useful to a player without reflection, to protect against instadeath from disintegration, most players would just eat the dragon to gain the resistance intrinsically. However, a conduct player might find BDSM useful should they manage to kill a black dragon. One might also give it to a pet vampire lord in lieu of an amulet or shield of reflection.
