U.W.W. Marine Raider Mystic Power Armor:


Usually on raids, the marines prefer heavier armors with the Warlock Combat Armor being the most common suit used. Still, there are situations where a much lighter suit is preferred. This is most common with Marine Raiders who are often expected to travel as lightweight as possible. As a result, a light armor which is more like an augmented body armor was developed. Each suit is tailored to the wearer and is extremely form fitting. All troops using this armor are taught the spell “Armor of Ithan” to be able to quickly repair the armor.


The armor is a modified version of the standard Mystic Power Armor. There are other versions of the mystic power armor available in the United Worlds Warlock which have far greater modifications but the armor is relatively expensive because it is used by Warlock Marine Raiders.


Instead of being constructed from clear quartz, the marine armor is constructed from extremely dark smoky quartz. The smoky quartz is so dark that it is almost black. As well, the armor uses a black diamond instead of a standard diamond. Like the standard Mystic Power Armor, the diamond has to be worth at least 20,000 Credits. The effect of the armor is that it is much more dangerous looking than a standard set of mystic power armor.


All the standard abilities of a Mystic Power Armor are part of the Marine Raider version. This includes super-human strength, magical flight, chameleon, and enchanted vision which includes the ability to track and see the invisible. The armor also gives the ability to breath without air both for use in space and underwater. The armor can fire lightning bolts, fire balls, and create a magic net. Of course most operators of the armor carry a more powerful energy rifle with most carrying the PB-85 Rifle although some prefer the Consortium HI-300 Infantry Support weapon due to its ability to fire suppressive bursts. Many also carry a magic sword for close combat.


Additional equipment includes a techno-wizard battery for additional magical energy. The battery uses emeralds and only recharges slowly off of ley lines. One ley lines, the battery recharges quickly. The battery can be used for spell casting and for the enchantments built into the armor itself. Of unlimited duration, the chameleon ability allows the armor to blend into surrounding while not moving. In addition, the armor has an invisibility enchantment so the armor can completely disappear.


Compared to the standard mystic power armor, the Marine Raider version has slightly better armor and can withstand greater damage. In addition, the armor has a special enchantment which allows the armor to regenerate damage. As listed earlier, the armor can be regenerate damage quickly by the cating of the spell “Armor of Ithan.” For additional protection, the armor also has the ability to create an “Invincible Armor” force field around the armor.

Notes:

Armor takes no damage from fire or heat, including magical, due to enchantments. Also regenerates 10 M.D.C. per hour. Casting “Armor of Ithan” and 100 P.P.E. will restore all M.D.C.

[3] “Invincible Armor” Force Field costs 30 P.P.E. per activation (usually pulled from the armor’s P.P.E. battery but can be charged by the operator of the armor as well if a spell caster) and has a duration of 24 minutes (96 melee) per activation. The armor regenerates damage at the rate of 1D6 M.D.C. per melee round. The armor also offers complete environmental protection from heat, cold, disease, pollution, toxic gases, fumes, etc. and, provides the wearer with an independent oxygen supply. Furthermore, all energy attacks, magic or mundane, inflict only half their usual damage to the armor! Should the armor be destroyed, it absorbs all the extra damage and disappears in a flash of light. No damage is carried over to the wearer.

Technowizard Abilities:

The armor has a P.P.E. battery built into the armor in the form of emerald crystals. This magical energy cannot be used by the wearer to cast spells but can be used to power enchantments in the armor. The armor stores 20 P.P.E. for every crystal built into the armor with ten crystals as part of the battery (200 P.P.E.) Magical energy regenerates at the rate 2 P.P.E. per hour normally or 10 per hour on a Ley Line. Spell casters can also feed P.P.E. into the crystals. Enchantments can be activated by non-spell casters..
