ARMOURY: Lychguard

TIMEWORN LYCHGUARD DISPERSION SHIELD

Wondrous item, very rare

Screen Shot 2015-03-22 at 08.06.24The phased energy force barriers projected by a dispersion shield can be used to fend off close combat attacks with ease, including blows from weapons such as Power Fists and Power Weapons that would otherwise smite a lesser foe.  Dispersion shields are also capable of deflecting incoming enemy fire using the advanced force generators built into the device.

The Lychguard appears as a bulky bracelet covered in blinking blue lights and pulsing holographic emitters. The bracelet produces a translucent but substantial holographic barrier when activated  that looks like a shield used by elite Necron units.   As a reaction you can trigger shield and an invisible barrier of technological force appears and protects you.  Until the start of your next turn, you have a +5 bonus to AC, including against the triggering attack, and you take no damage from magic missile.  Each use of the Lychguard drains a single charge (capacity 20, current 11, DC 27 to identify).

When turned off, a hard light shield provides no AC bonus and imposes no penalties.  This item occupies the wearer’s wrist slot.
