Approved Tech Royal armor of Glyss

Not open for further replies.

The armor without the helmet and gloves; the wearer is shown here with a longsword-sized beskad

  • Intent: To provide Jessica with a suit of armor fit for a princess
  • Image Source: Geek X Girls
  • Canon Link: N/A
  • Restricted challenge: Yousa want fries with dat? (Jessica's posts are written from the viewpoint of Julie Jutland, a NPC accompanying Jessica; 11 posts)
  • Primary Source: N/A
  • Manufacturer: [member="Stephanie Brown"] through Beskar Ring Forge (workshop)
  • Model: N/A
  • Affiliation: [member="Jessica Med-Beq"]
  • Modularity: Yes
  • Production: Unique
  • Material: Laminanium, armorweave, electronics
  • Classification: Multipurpose
  • Weight: 20 kg
  • Quality: 9 (laminanium), 5 (armorweave)
  • Magno-grip soles
  • Grav boots
  • Temperature regulator; climate control
  • Digitial Life Support System
  • Broadband antenna; comlink (right wrist)
  • Environmental filter, rebreather, oxygen filtration system, nutrient/water dispenser, oxygen tank (30 minute supply)
  • Copper Faraday cage
  • Lightsaber socket
  • Ion flares (3)
  • Grappling hook launchers (2), high tension wire
  • Combat de-ionizer, blast energy sinks
  • Energy rations, canteen, medpacs (2)

In the boots, are located two items that are useful in different capacities and are meant to be used in specific situations: the magno-grip soles are to be used mostly when one needs to grip at objects made of magnetic materials so that the wearer would not fall off (in a gravity field) or fly (without gravity), while the grav boots would activate in a fall in order to reduce the shock incurred. To ensure the comfort and survival of the wearer in hostile environments, a sophisticated climate control system has been implemented with temperature regulator, as well as a number of environmental features that allow it to enhance the survival in toxic environments. To round out the survival equipment, the energy rations, canteen and medpacs are also included. In combat, a blast energy sink and a combat de-ionizer is also added to help withstand blast effects and ion/EMP attacks respectively. Also, a few sockets have been installed, allowing ion flares to be used in an emergency, as well as the lightsaber socket. And, of course, the communications equipment, such as a broadband antenna and a wrist-mounted comlink, has been fitted.

  • Can re-seal holes on its own after taking hits (however, the time required to do so is longer than what one typically have in battle)
  • Great resistance to elements
  • Provides sockets for equipment in a wide variety of situations
Weaknesses :
  • If the wearer is rendered unable to use the Force, the wearer has no sensory means beyond what a NFU could have without targeting systems
  • Weak, stiff joints
  • EMP/ion blasts can fry systems
  • Still rather heavy and limits movement more than a duraplast armor or light armor would due to its stiff joints


After several incidents, it was found that Jessica's armor had a few weaknesses that needed to be addressed, such as the difficulty of repair, which was found to be a liability. It was decided that laminanium plates would allow it to be repaired very easily and well worth the extra weight, also it was not much of a problem given that they were naturally a little slow. Given the Force-using nature of their respective wearers, it does not feature much in the way of sensory equipment, in an attempt to cut expenses and upkeep. Due to the special nature of the laminanium, and its ability to liquefy at almost any temperature, repairing it on the field occurs much faster than with conventional durasteel armor. Two suits of armor were commissioned to Stephanie Brown in the wake of this realization: one for Jessica and one for Summer, the current royal couple of Glyss.

Of course, in normal circumstances, the joints would be made of armorweave underneath the laminanium plates, and also allow the armor to be worn much more comfortably and with more freedom of movement than would otherwise be the case; it also allows to isolate the outside temperature from the temperature inside the suit. On the field, however, the sheer weight of the makes their wearers slower than what would otherwise be the case since the grav boots only allow the wearer to float above ground or to absorb the shock of a fall without any bonus to the wearer's speed (or at least not beyond any boost provided by Force-speed; said boosts are reduced because of the weight of the armor).
Hi [member="Jessica Med-Beq"]! I will be reviewing this submission.

  • Please drop this to 9 for balance.

  • I just want to make sure it is understood that this feature should not be used in the midst of a battle. This material takes time to repair itself. It is not instantaneous.

  • How does the armor restrict movement?
