Armor Upgrades

A creature can personalize armor by purchasing and installing armor upgrades, described below, which add bonuses or customized abilities to armor. Some individuals keep a collection of upgrades at hand, swapping them out as needed (requiring 10 minutes to replace the unit and resecure all connections). Explanations of entries for upgrades’ statistics follow.

This set of golden armor plating bears runes symbolizing death, life, and protection. It must be installed in a suit of armor for 24 hours before it functions, and when the upgrade is removed from the armor, no other upgrade can use its vacated slot for 24 hours. As a move action, you can gain protection against certain necromantic attacks, per death ward, until you spend another move action to deactivate the upgrade or it runs out of charges. A life shield’s charges replenish each day.
