_The Cartisans are
extremely high tech, they have
mastered the arts of interstellar corporation and are
a very lucrative race, wealthy beyond all compare.
Their world Phoebeus is rich in resources and they
have taken advantage of that, reaping the profits of
12 planets within their solar system. Three of those
planets now inhabited and maintained by Teraform
_Culturally they are very conservative, with no need
for political ties or alliances beyond themselves. Any
Allies made are for shear profit or because of some
moral clause that they have choosen to be a part of.
Normally however they are a difficult race to reach,
commonly within the throws of high class society and
maintaining bussiness, they do not give readily.
_With their Arts and leisure its just the same, very
ornate in Architechture and Decoration. The most
practical approach is even critized for its esthetic.
It isnt uncommon to confuse their idea of casual with
that of formal wear, this even includes their military
_All of this does not mean however that they are a
unemotive race, rather just the opposite. They may
maintain a high social standard, but they freely
express their emotions and communicate their ideas
in large ways. They have erected massive cathedral
like buildings for cultural exchange and personalize
almost all of their belongings. The only standards
in style that are actually kept is the Military garbs
and outposts. These are generally made to create a
sense of fear to outside interloopers. They are alot
like humans in this respect, having great esteem for
the ulterior personage, they just have alot of money.
- The Varnician
- ~ Varnicia
is the moon of Phoebeus where they develope many weapons and
armor. The Armor is a standard Cartisan Military wear and is
limited to only the Cartisan military. They do not make theses
for any others, or specifically outsiders.
- ~ V1 Lower
is a all purpose suit built to resist heavy fire and any environment.
They are completely self contained and very strong. Using a
hermetic Force feild built into them that are engaged with an
- ~ V2
Upper is built up ontop of the V1 and looks far more onamental
than militant. This was primarily designed to protect the likes
of leaders and dignitaries, however is used often under heavy
fire by their storm soldiers.
- ~ Both
are powered armor with an active alert overide system to overcome
high gravity environments. The suit still remains relatively
light, so a Cartisan soldier can use it without penalty. The
V2 Upper will fold away in a conceled pack on their shoulders
for better combatics. However the V2 Upper limits the soldier
to ranged attacks only with conceled weapons inside the cloak.
- ~ Another
defensive mechanism built in is a type of black cloudy mater,
that is released upon massive damage sustainment.
~ This Blinds any enemy with in a 80ft radius, this also temporarily
interferes with sensory reading for about (1D6 x 10 minutes)
while the cloud dissapates.
~ Individuals may fine tune their HUD sensors or sights to read
through it but this may take upto
(1D4 melees). The nature of the gas is a thick heavy partical
sheilding, it will also reduce the damage of Energy weapons
- ~ Aside
from that the Cartisan have developed personal cloaking devices
making them absolutely invisible to any sensory equipment. However
they limit the use of these and rarely ever allow soldiers to
use the technology for fear it may be stolen or taken as salvage
in post combat. The Cloaking feild has an unlimited capacity
and cannot be read on any sensory device. The suit actually
displaces its environment subatomically, using a special feild
of quark sciences, beyond nearly all other races current understandings.
V1 Lower - 300
V2 Upper - 400
- Helmet: 200 MDC
shots to the helmet are - 2 to strike
(Damages above are accumulative Damage Capacities capacities,
meaning a complete V1 and V2 armor will sustain 700 MDC)
When engaged the suit allows for greater speed
and mobility, when not there is no negative or bonus attatched.
+ 4 Initiative / +2 strike / +8 parry & dodge
Speed is +10 to attribute with no negative in varying
gravities. These bonuses do not apply when using the V2
Upper however, and Spd is actually reduced (-20%).
