Elven Veil

The cloaking cloth used by the Elves to hide themselves and their cities

Mechanical Benefits

  HP/Inch: Normal for the material it is bonded to   Hardness: Normal for the material it is bonded to   Special: This material is typically available only to elves and Gloomgaunts. Ask your GM before using or buying it.  
For Armor: Armor made of Elven Veil does not apply its ACP to stealth checks, reduces size penalties to stealth(-2 for Light, Halved for Medium, None for Heavy), and grants a +4 to stealth checks. Additionally, it can camoflauge itself and its wearer into the surrounding terrain as a swift action, granting them the effects of invisibility for as long as they do not move and 1 round once they begin moving, or until they do any action that would normally break invisibility. This effect is an extraordinary ability. Armor made of and/or bonded with Elven Veil appears to have a large billowing cloak attached to it, which slowly camoflauges with the surrounding environment as it wraps around its wearer like a sentient item, moving as if alive.
