Crisys Suit
The Crisys Suit was developed by the Jovian Republic in order to enable their soldiers to remain competitive with transhuman synthetic-bodied nanomachine-filled monstrosities. How well it does this task is for the reader to determine. It provides a base 12/12 armor. Upon detecting a sufficiently-hard impact, it injects painkillers into the user to negate up to two levels of wounds. It generates enough energy within itself to maintain one of four modes of operation. Switching modes is a simple mental action. - Maximum Armor: The suit provides 18/18 armor. - Maximum Speed: The wearer moves twice as quickly while running and freerunning. - Maximum Stealth: This mode functions like a Chameleon Suit, and is not effective if any extra armor is worn on top. - Maximum Strength: The wearer is given a +30% bonus to perform feats of strength, moves 50% faster when pushing off a surface for freefall, and does +15 damage on melee and throwing attacks. The effects of throwing an extremely-heavy object are usually instant death for most biomorph targets.

Re: Crisys Suit
Is this something the Jovans use instead of the Battle suit exo (p.334) or the Hoplite armor from the NPCFilePrime? Or is it something they use alongside those existing systems? Also, I've been under the impression that Jovans like cyberware and bioware they just don't use the stuff that requires nanotech.

Mea Culpa: My mode of speech can make others feel uninvited to argue or participate. This is the EXACT opposite of what I intend when I post.

Re: Crisys Suit
When I think of Jovian technology, I don't think of form-fitting power-suits and agile soldiers. I think of bulky power armor and massive weaponry. The Jovians know that they don't have the nano-tech to face up to transhumans on a face-to-face level. Instead, they're going to play hard by giving their soldiers the best selection of weapons, vehicles and ships that any force in the system has ever seen. I can see other factions housing soldiers that look similar to the characters of Crysis, but the Jovians, as I imagine them, remind me more of the Terrans from Starcraft than anything (or maybe the Mobile Infantry of the Starship Troopers novel). If anything, I'd see this as being prototype technology from the PC.
Transhumans will one day be the Luddites of the posthuman age. [url=http://bit.ly/2p3wk7c]Help me get my gaming fix, if you want.[/url]
