Akira Armour Co set out to design a peice of armour that would not only
protect the wearer but act as a surrogate damage taker. It would absorb
all the hurt, at an expensse of energy. A basic semi-hard protective
vest was built with a special conductive lining atatched to a micro-
shield generator. The shield generaotr used the lining to actualy create
the field jsut above the vest's surface. The generator only oeprates at
one fith of it's pwoer at any time but as dmage is incured it replaces
lost energy with backups, thusly preventing the wearer from any actual
harm. However energy weapons often interact poorly with the shield and
a good enoguh hit can shrot the shiled system out, leaving the wearer
without much defense. Surprisingly this evst ebcame popular among
various planetary police forces where firearms were more popular than
blasters. There hasn't been a single complaint about the PPV yet, except
for it's price of course.
Akira Armour Co PPV
Type: Light (Specialized protection system)
Cost: 2,900 credits
DR: 5 (torso)
Max Dex Bonus: +5
Armor Check Penalty: -1
Speed: 10 (10 m), 6 (6 m)
Energy shield: The PPV generates a small low pwoered energy shield just
above the surface of the armour adidng protective strength. The shield
adds +2 to resist all damage; and if physical damage is incurred while
the shield is activated, for every point of damage sustained, the shield
loses a point from it's energy stores. It has 30 units stored energy.
However if energy damage is incured while the shield is active, the
shield shorts out and cannot be used again until repaired. 10 units
out of the shields are drained after every hour of use until recharged.
