Armor Check Penalty

Your total armor check penalty is equal to your highest armor check penalty. If you are wearing advanced armor and carrying a large shield your armor check penalty is -4.

Armor check penalty applies to all dexterity based skill checks. Advanced armor applies 1/3 of its armor check penalty on constitution checks (minimum 1) required by a forced march.
