Armor Focus

Choose any specific type of armor, such as chain mail or full plate armor. You are more adept at moving when wearing that armor.

Prerequisite(s): Proficiency with selected armor.

Benefit: When wearing the selected armor type, the armor check penalty applied to your skills is reduced by 1. This reduction stacks with that granted by masterwork armor, but cannot reduce the total armor check penalty to less than 0. The maximum Dexterity bonus for that armor increases by 1 if the armor is medium or heavy armor. These benefits apply both to standard armor and to armors made of special materials, such as mithral or adamantine.

Special: You may take this feat multiple times; its effects do not stack. Each time you select this feat applies to a different armor type.
