Powered Armor

Unlike light and heavy armor, powered armor requires its own battery, and comes with a fully charged battery at purchase. Powered armor uses the same type of batteries as other items, including charged weapons, and the battery for a suit of powered armor can be recharged as normal using a generator or recharging station (see page 234), or it can be replaced with a new battery when spent (see Table 7–9: Ammunition for battery pricing).

As bulbous and malleable as the barathus of Bretheda, this powered armor features a semirigid frame around gas chambers that provide protection and buoyancy. Barathus don’t think the blimp-like powered armor resembles one of their kind, but most accept the name in their typical easygoing fashion. Virtually any kind of creature can wear barathu battens, as the interior accommodates a variety of body types.
