PostSubject: Personal Armor    Thu Nov 25, 2010 9:11 am

The following is an extensive list as seen in "Vampires Storytellers Companion" It details the different types of Armor available and what the difference is between them.  Remember Armor comes in different sizes, so ones stolen form Police, Guards or others may incur increased Dexterity Modifiers due to not fitting properly.

If otherwise stated body Armor is expensive and in some cases illegal. A character will need a minimum of Resources 4 to buy any. Cheaper armor is available but these are mainly display and will have severe reductions in efficiency.

Remember in modern day Society visible armor is not accepted as standard dress. It will bring as much attention to the character as if they were openly carrying a gun or sword down the streets.

Each value type the Armor give the character adds to the wearers soak dice.

Bashing Soak This value adds to the wears soak dice against bashing damage. This is also used against thrown weapons.

Melee Soak This value adds to the wears soak dice against Lethal damage form Melee attacks. This is also used against Lethal brawling attacks like Feral Claws and low velocity projectiles suck as arrows and crossbow bolts.

Bullet Soak This value adds to the wears soak dice against Lethal damage form guns. This is also used against thrown weapons.

Dexterity Penalty This is the amount the Armor reduces the wears Dexterty by when wearing the Armor. You may never reduce the Dex bellow 0

Perception Penalty This is the Amout the Armour restricts the wears Perception by when wearing the Armor. You may never refuduce the Perception bellow 0. This applies to Helmets only.

Conceal This is the amount of clothing that must be worn to properly conceal the Armor.

*W – Windbreaker or loose shirt
*J – Jacket or Suit
*T – Trench Coat
*N – No Concealing, to bulky

Armor Modifications
Worn armor can be upgraded with a range of modifications.

Chemical Protection: The application of water-resistant, nonporous, and impermeable materials helps protect the wearer against contact-vector chemical attacks Toxin Protection. For full body armor, this will also protect against inhalation-vector attacks.

Chemical Seal:
Only available to full body armor, the chemical seal is an actual airtight environmental control that takes 1 Complex Action to implement. It provides complete protection against contact and inhalation vector chemicals, and has a built-in 1-hour air supply. Fire Resistance: Fire-retardant, heat-resistant, and nonflammable materials protect the wearer against Fire damage, adding its full rating to the armor value.

Thermal fibers, insulating layers, and heatretentive materials protect the wearer against Cold damage, adding its full rating to the armor value. Nonconductivity: Electrical insulation and grounding materials protect the wearer against Electricity damage, adding its full rating to the armor value.

Shock Frills:
These strips of “fur” are electrically charged when activated, standing on end and inflicting Electricity damage to anyone that comes into contact. this modification must be used with the nonconductivity modification (so that the wearer does not get shocked). Use unarmed Combat to attack with the frills. The frills hold 10 charges; when attached to a power point, they reload one charge per 10 seconds.

Thermal Damping:
Designed to reduce the wearer’s thermal signature, inner layers capture and retain heat while outer layers maintain a surface temperature equal to the surrounding air. Thermal damping adds its rating as bonus to Infiltration Tests to avoid thermal sensors, thermographic vision, etc.
