Orcish Armour Suite

As base, the OAS gives an AC of 11+Dex modifier. However, it can be upgraded with the following options:

Tier 1

Tier 1 upgrades are available levels 1-4. They are generally useful, but not overpowering. You may have up to 4 of these.

Light OAS*-Increases AC to 12+Dex mod.

Medium OAS*-Changes AC to 14+Dex mod (max 2).

Heavy OAS*-Changes AC to 16. Inflicts disadvantage on stealth checks.

Refined-Makes the OAS blend in better, giving it a more simple and clothing like appearance.

Energy Inured-Makes the OAS reduce all damage taken by a single damage type reduced by 3. (This upgrade may be taken multiple times, each time selecting a new damage type. Bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing may not be selected.)

Perceptive-Makes the OAS heighten your senses. Gives you +1d4 to all Perception checks, and increases your passive Perception by 3.

Jumping-May make full jumps without a running start. Triples jump distance and height.

Energy Blast-Gives you a 30'/120' ranged attack that deals one type of energy damage, chosen after every long rest. Deals 1d8 damage.

Basic Manipulation-Gain any one non-damaging cantrip, other than Guidance.

Some suggestions.

Impact dampened: gain temp hp equal to (enter ability mid here) at the beginning of your turn. Its similiar to immortal mystic

Water breathing: self explaining

Swim speed: self explaining

Climb speed: self explaining

Improved jump: make jumps without a running start increase distance 2 or 3 as in jump spell

Improved flight: just like feat without stat increase

Grasping claws: gain claws can fight as if two weapons if hands are empty. After you hit you can attempt to grab as a bonus action

Tripping tail: gain a tail attack. Same as claws but instead shoved prone

Ramming horns: gain a Gore attack. Same as above but shoves back.

Energy blast: basically gives a ranged attack cantrip that doesn't scale

Improved: now it scales

Chameleon field: grants invisibility

Improved: does so more often

Greater: now it's greater too.

Mattermanipulator: gains a utility cantrip

Blurring movement: disadvantage on attack rolls against oa made against you for moving

Project image: some higher level illusion spell.

Those are just off the top of my head. Yeah I went syfy on it but name them what you will. Maybe this will give spark some ideas for you.
