Light Shields use different technology than typical energy shields. It creates
a field of invisible ionized static. It hangs loosely around the wearer. When
an energy 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 Shields are
preferable to standard energy shields. They are however much more expensive
and 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-15 consist of an LS-10 system with an extra unit clipped onto any belt.
This device, like the shoudler belts, stores addtional energy. The duration
is increased however there was not any siginifigant increase in the stopping
power of the -15 as the belt unit is effectively just an extra energy cell
worked into the system.
Model: Lumnar Industries LS-15 Light Shield
Type: Personal shield generator
Availability 2, F
Effect: Adds +3D to character's Strength to resist damage from energy
weapons and firearms. The shield has enough energy for 5 minutes(60 rounds)
of continuous use.
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.
