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.

Mobility Enhancer

This system of elastic braces and joint support structures reduces the stress heavy armor exerts on your body, allowing you to move faster despite the armor’s bulk. A mobility enhancer reduces the armor’s speed adjustment by an amount determined by the upgrade’s type, as listed below. The speed adjustment of the armor can’t increase above 0 feet.
  • Mk 1 (Level 3): Reduce the armor’s speed adjustment by 5 feet.
  • Mk 2 (Level 8): Reduce the armor’s speed adjustment by 10 feet.
This upgrade can be installed only in heavy armor.
