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.

A stalwart upgrade consists of inertial dampeners spread across the body, often augmented by armored boots that can deploy stabilizing struts. When activated as a move action, these dampeners monitor your biosigns, impeding any sudden movements that you didn’t initiate. While activated, the stalwart upgrade consumes 1 charge per minute, and each time you are targeted by a bull rush, reposition, or trip combat maneuver, the upgrade consumes an additional charge to grant you a +4 armor bonus to your AC against the combat maneuver.
