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.

Your armor is equipped with a number of systems designed to monitor your health and activity, information that’s simultaneously broadcast to any comm unit set to receive this data. The upgrade includes an obvious camera and microphone mounted on the outside of your armor, and the upgrade transmits everything it sees and hears; it has access to any senses installed in the armor (for example, infrared sensors), but not any unusual senses you possess. The remote monitoring system upgrade tracks your vital signs, and an individual receiving the transmissions from this upgrade can see if you’ve taken Hit Point damage as well as any conditions currently affecting you.
