Steam Armor (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
|Cost||Armor Class (AC)||Strength||Stealth||Weight|
|1,800 gp||18||–||Disadvantage||125 lb.|
Note: This armor is only available in campaigns in which steam engines have been invented.
A full suit of steam-powered, industrial-strength armor, with one inch thick steel-and-brass plating contoured to the human body, a large helm with an air filter, a tinted-glass visor, and a large bronze plate covering the skull. Down the back of the helm, a set of overlapping steel plates covers the neck. A large boiler on the back serves as the power source.
This armor was originally used for construction, and the design shows it. The heavy armor is supported by a suspension system to absorb heavy impacts, and the tinted glass visor protects the wearer from the blinding sparks of welding equipment.

Steam armor does not reduce your movement due to it being heavy armor, and its weight does not contribute towards your encumbrance. In addition, you have advantage on Strength checks and Strength saving throws, and can carry twice the normal weight.
Steam armor requires fuel to function. The furnace holds 20 lbs of coal (worth 4 sp), allowing it to function for 8 hours. Alternatively, it can burn dry wood, allowing it to function for 1 hour.
If you are wearing steam armor that has no fuel remaining, you cannot move or take actions except to doff the armor.
