Coat of Ill Payment is a unique brigandine in Pillars of Eternity.
||The Coat of Ill Payment came into the hands of an Aedyran gambler after he won it in a game of chance. Unsure of exactly what use he'd get out of it, he took to wearing it at his games as a good luck charm. An opponent accused him of cheating and attempted to beat payment out of the gambler – only to recoil in pain after landing the first blow. The gambler realized then that the armor granted him some measure of magical protection – and decided upon a new scheme.
The gambler would get into a game, cheat openly – or at least give the appearance of it – and then fight the angry party when matters escalated, often for higher stakes. This worked swimmingly – until he overplayed his hand, and found himself on the receiving end of more angry fists than the armor could handle.
