Properties

Found on the least decayed of the piled corpses. Whoever had this on, it seems they were the last to die. Whatever bloody conflict happened here... it seems this suit's wearer had led the charge and lived to see it fall.

Special

If the wearer is reduced to 0 HP, instead of becoming knocked out, they can continue to act but recieve Lethal Damage in place of regular damage and recievess double Lethal Damage from sources that already would deal Lethal damage until their HP is raised again to 1 or higher. If the wearer recieves Lethal Damsge equal to their base Max HP, they die instantaneously. The wearer cannot recover Lethal Damage while wearing this item, and must be effected by a Restoration invocation of PL 5 or higher to remove it.

Wealth Level Calculation

WL 3

  • +5 - Special

Usage

This item can provide a much longer life, but at a steep price. Even once it's off you still need to let the Lethal Damage heal, and if you get too much of it, then you're done for.

Flavor Suggestions & Settings

  • Whatever dark and holy magics were used to create this, it seems to be able to keep the soul tethered until even it is destroyed. This poor soldier hasn't even a ghost.
  • Fascinating! A recursive neural network and multiple deep embeddings into the body seem to be capable of replicating the host to the point of no functional difference! You'd need to kill someone so badly the suit thinks nobody's in it to make it stop! ...doesn't say anything good about what happened to the poor chap who had it before you....

Alternate Options

Feel free to make the armor part be a different type if you so choose. For example, perhaps you want it to be Light armor, or Heavy (Slow) armor.

GM Concerns

This item can provide extreme longetivity at the cost of potentially taking somebody out of combat for a long time. Also, as it worsens normally Lethal Damage as well as making normal damage Lethal, this item's usefulness will also partialy depend on how often Lethal damage comes up without this suit's effect.

Notes of Interest

Good for if your players want to loot a war zone or near equivalent, as well as to foreshadow major threats, as finding this on a corpse signals that something must have managed to kill who hd been wearing it.
