Light Shields use different technology than typical energy shields. It creates
field of invisible ionized static. It hangs loosely around the wearer. When
blast or high velocity projectile starts to pass through the field,
it constricts and
forms a crystal clear energy shield that can deflect the
attacks. The effect is such that
it looks like a glass bubble or the like
suddenly appears around the wearer deflecting the
attack. Because the field
protects against firearms and has a much longer duration Light
preferable to standard energy shields. They are however much more expensive
still do not deflect low velocity objects such as needle guns, thrown
knives, or melee attacks.
Also these don't work off actual pwoerpacks. They
have rechargeable energy cells, and adapters
come free with the pruchase of
the units so they can be recharged at home.
The LS-10 consists of the same forearm units as the LS-5, with the controls
generaly on the left forearm unit. It also has a band worn around either
shoulder. These keep additional energy stored up and help distribute them
more evenly over the user's body mass, providing for a stronger shield
and longer duration.

Note: If the wild-die comes up as a 1 on a resist with the Light-Shield active one of two
things happens. On a re-roll of 1-5, the Light-Sheild shorts out and will not function until
repaired. on a re-roll of 6 the Light-Shield overloads and explodes doing damage equal to the
resist bonus offered by the shield unit.
