Animated Armor

Mon 31 Jul 2017, 13:28

Hi to everyone,

In your opinion is the Pariah´s Order Animated armor just a special set of heavy armor suit (in the style of Mass effect suits for example) in terms of size and mechanics or is it considered to be more similar in size to an armored or battle exo (like the Matrix ones).

This from the Artefacts and faction tech supplement:
The holiest of the Order's warriors go into battle dressed in animate suits of armor, technological wonders crafted by the factions' mythical animaturgs. This armor is the prime example of the Order's bionic proficiency, which is much more advanced than that of the other factions. A would-be user of an animate armor must undergo a long and rigorous training process. A complex relationship must be formed between the armor and its wearer. The armor must be harmonized with the wearer's physique and mind to be able to work. For some warriors, wearing the armor is like using a drug. Outside of its protective shell, they feel extremely vulnerable and weak, wanting nothing more than to return to the armor immediately. An animate suit of armor improves the strength and reflexes of the wearer, but its greatest advantage is its protective capabilities. The armor is adaptive beyond any other known technology and alters itself to withstand incoming attacks, becoming stronger as it is hit. Those in armed conflict with the Order try to counteract this by using experimental weaponry. The heretics on Zalos-B have so far been the most successful at this.

On a related note, the Artifacts book says they have 2 additional features (With the Arachnid Armour having 5), but does not specify what these are, or what they could be..

Anyone have any suggestions, or do I just choose at random from Cybernetic Talents maybe?

Hiya,
On page 133 of the main book there is a list of all weapon and armor features available to add a little variety and surprise :) This is also important because on the previous page in the armor and shields section some of the heavier exo suits also have slots available for adding features.

Ah, excellent. Thanks for the clarification. I thought it would have been in the same book.
