Ironwood Body [Ironborn] (adapted from Races of Eberron)
Your body is crafted with a layer of hard ironwood that cushions blows.
Prerequisites: Ironborn, 1st level only.
Primary Benefit: Your armor bonus increases to +3. You are considered to be wearing light armor and have a +4 maximum Dexterity bonus to Armor Class, a -3 penalty on all skill checks to which armor check penalties apply (Balance, Climb, Escape Artist, Hide, Jump, Move Silently, Sleight of Hand, Swim, and Tumble), and an arcane spell failure chance of 20%.
Secondary Benefit: You gain damage reduction 2/slashing.
Normal: Without this feat, your ironborn character has an armor bonus of +2.
Special: Unlike most feats, this feat must be taken at 1st level, during character creation. An ironborn with this feat who takes Improved Damage Reduction can choose to gain damage reduction 1/adamantine or improve the damage reduction granted by this feat by 2. Ironborn druids who take this feat can cast druid spells and use the druid's supernatural and spell-like abilities. A Large ironborn only gains the primary ability when it takes this feat for the first time. A Large ironborn can take this feat two times (it does not have to take the feat the second time at 1st level), the second time it gains the secondary ability granted by this feat.
