A battle gorget was a type of magical armor that protected the wearer's neck and throat from damage.[1]


The gorget consisted of a metal throat-shield and a series of overlapping metal plates that encircled the neck. The entire device was connected to a belt made of leather.[1]


When worn, the battle gorget protected the wearer from physical strangulation such as the case if they were hung by a noose.[1]

Once per day the wearer could evoke the effects of the spells lesser ironguard, repulsion and firebeam. If the wearer of the gorget were to fall from a significant distance, they could ease their descent as if they had cast the spell feather fall. This power could be used twice per day.[1]
