Powered Armor

Unlike light and heavy armor, powered armor requires its own battery, and comes with a fully charged battery at purchase. Powered armor uses the same type of batteries as other items, including charged weapons, and the battery for a suit of powered armor can be recharged as normal using a generator or recharging station (see page 234), or it can be replaced with a new battery when spent (see Table 7–9: Ammunition for battery pricing).

When the intensely private owners of Valodon Media funneled significant resources into creating a working battle suit styled after its hit vidgame character Rocket Hero, no one expected the resulting powered armor to even function, much less become a commercial success. Rocket Hero suits in gleaming green and gold are the most common, and are usually owned by wealthy socialites who want to streak across the sky and relive Rocket Hero’s superhuman escapades. Most serious aftermarket owners tone down the garish coloration with matte paint. Additional models of the suit, based on Rocket Hero's various incarnations, are in development.
