Gofner’s Momentum Armor

Like many things, heavy armor isn’t common among thugs and street criminals, but within unsavory merchant circles whos dirty money can afford expensive ways to kill, you will find an extensive array armor and weapons that would make the Royal Garrison envious.

One such piece is Gofner’s Momentum Armor. Gofner originally designed a magical wagon propulsion mechanism, but after a string of accidents (one involving the niece of a High Lord), the contraptions were banned. The only working prototype was converted into a beautiful suit of armor that doesn’t mind by running into things and causing a little chaos.

Mechanics

You have a +2 bonus to AC while wearing Gofner’s Momentum Armor and your speed increases by 10 feet.

This armor has 4 charges. Before you take a move action, you can expend one of the charges and shout a command phrase. Doing so will produce one of the effects listed. The armor regains 1d4 charges every day at dawn. If you provoke an opportunity attack while using one of the armor’s abilities, the attacker has advantage on their attack roll.

“Braahh”

If you move in a straight line, every time your path would pass through another creature’s space (size large or smaller), that creature must succeed on a DC 15 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone. If the creature is knocked prone, you may continue your movement (Moving in the same direction as before); otherwise, you stop.

“Aaarrg!”

If you move at least 10 feet straight toward a creature (size large or smaller), it must succeed on a DC 15 Strength saving throw. If it fails, both you and the creature are knocked prone. The creature is grappled and is stunned for one turn (6 seconds).

“Charge!”

If you move at least 10 feet straight toward a creature (size large or smaller) and make a melee attack, you gain advantage on your attack roll. Additionally, the target must succeed on a DC 15 Strength saving throw or be knocked prone.
