Personal Protection 

Thanks to monofilament ballistic fabrics, spiderweave threads, ceramic-titanium composite plates, and liquid armor packs to cover non-rigid areas, modern armor is lightweight, flexible, and concealable. The following armor items offer tremendous damage resistance without slowing the wearer down or drawing too much attention

Worn by military and security personnel around the world, full body armor is often styled for intimidation as much as ease of movement. It features a padded undersuit, over which patches of liquid armor gel and extensive armor plates are attached. Though surprisingly lightweight, full body armor is certain to draw attention. In addition to an array of useful tactical gear and webbing, full body armor can be outfitted with environmental adaptation (for hot or cold environments) and/or a chemical seal to completely protect the wearer from toxic environments or attacks.

 

Full body armor is electronically integrated with a wireless link, and can be enhanced with additional features such as vision enhancements, tracking/RFID signals, smartlink, and more. The armor suit’s helmet incorporates a wireless link and can be equipped with any of the vision enhancements.

Helmets and Shields

Helmets and shields do not count as separate pieces of armor; instead, they modify the rating of worn armor by their rating. Due to the unwieldiness of a shield, a character using one suffers a –1 dice pool modifier on any physical tests (including attacks). Shields can also be used as a melee weapon (using the Exotic Melee Weapon skill). Shields may be upgraded with the chemical protection, fire resistance, and nonconductivity armor modifications. When combining armor and a shield, only one of them provides the modification bonus (wearer’s choice).

Armor Modifications

Worn armor can be upgraded with a range of modifications. Each of these is available in a rating between 1 and 6 (except chemical seal, which is unrated).

Chemical Protection: The application of water-resistant, nonporous, and impermeable materials helps protect the wearer against contact-vector chemical attacks. For full body armor, this will also protect against inhalation-vector attacks.

 

Chemical Seal: Only available to full body armor, the chemical seal is an actual airtight environmental control that takes 1 Complex Action to implement. It provides complete protection against contact and inhalation vector chemicals, and has a built-in 1-hour air supply.

 

Fire Resistance: Fire-retardant, heat-resistant, and nonflammable materials protect the wearer against Fire damage, adding its full rating to the armor value.

 

Insulation: Thermal fibers, insulating layers, and heatretentive materials protect the wearer against Cold damage, adding its full rating to the armor value.

 

Nonconductivity: Electrical insulation and grounding materials protect the wearer against Electricity damage, adding its full rating to the armor value.

 

Shock Frills: These strips of “fur” are electrically charged when activated, standing on end and inflicting Electricity damage to anyone that comes into contact. this modification must be used with the nonconductivity modification (so that the wearer does not get shocked). Use unarmed Combat to attack with the frills. The frills hold 10 charges; when attached to a power point, they reload one charge per 10 seconds.

 

Thermal Damping: Designed to reduce the wearer’s thermal signature, inner layers capture and retain heat while outer layers maintain a surface temperature equal to the surrounding air. Thermal damping adds its rating as bonus to Infiltration Tests to avoid thermal sensors, thermographic vision, etc.
