A full-body armored robe, made primarily for masters of arcane arts engaging in combat. They are usually made for high-ranking officials or military spell casters, and some can be as ornate as fine clothing.
Free Wear. The battle robe is padded with plates of hardened leather in strategic locations, such that they do not hamper movement any more than a common robe would. As such, anyone can wear a battle robe without penalty, regardless of whether they have light armor proficiency.
