Desirability

The orange crystal plate armour[1] offers impressive physical defense, a hard-to-come-by special defense, and a better boost to spellpower than a robe of the Archmagi. Any character who relies heavily on magic will want to wear this, but unfortunately few will actually be able to. The two species best able to handle ultra-heavy armour (ogres and trolls) are too large to fit, and for a medium-sized character to wear it comfortably would require investing in strength, not intelligence, greatly reducing their spellcasting potential.

In the end, it's an interesting and very effective piece of equipment for heavily-armoured thugs, but only a few fortunate hybrid characters with very high stats (demigods or followers of Cheibriados, perhaps) will be able to take full advantage of what it offers.
