Frostfield Plate
Frostfield Plate.jpg
In the bitterly cold northern reaches of Newerth, enterprising scholars have found a means to forge armor from ice itself. The famous Frostfield Plate armor not only keeps its wearer's mind bracingly alert, it also chills and slows any nearby foe. Perhaps most remarkably, at the flip of a switch the armor can release the explosive cold stored within.
