    MALAGITH’S MANDALORIAN ARMOR

    As a traditional Mandalorian, Malagith sought out a renowned armorer on Mandalore to custom design and construct his Mandalorian armor. It is a mid-ranged armor as far as protection is concerned, as well as its price. The armor is custom fitted to its wearer.

    LEGALITY

    Legal in all systems. Upper Class Societies like Alderaan may frown upon this armor in public places, and private business reserve the right to bar entrance to heavily armored individuals. Additionally the functional attachments added to this armor may violate local laws.

    INTENT

    Armor is an important part of Mandalorian culture, specifically Clan Dark Honor. Great care is taken in its design, construction, and use. The development of this armor and its significance with be played out in threads.

    ADVANCED TECH
    No.


    Type and Coverage

    Type: Medium.

    Coverage: (Coverage regions for Light armor is 1-3 regions, Medium is 4-6, Heavy is 7-8)



      • Head: Front and back of the head and neck.
      • Torso: Chest, abdomen, and shoulders.
      • Right Arm: Front and back of upper right arm, and elbows.
      • Left Arm: Front and back of upper left arm, and elbows
      • Hands: Hands, wrists and forearms
      • Legs: Groin, front and back thighs, and knees



    Functions



    Function: Emergency Vac-Suit


      • It's no replacement for a spacesuit if you intend to EVA, but this undersuit, if combined with a helmet, can protect the wearer from the immediate effects of exposure to a vacuum for 5 posting rounds. You still need a way to breathe, however.



    Function: Life-Support Box


      • Life support boxes are emergency gear designed to be worn in conjunction with other safety equipment, such as vac-suits and rebreathers. The device can be manually activated via a switch on the chest box, but most also automatically engage when exposed to vacuum. When activated, the device projects a small mag-shield "bubble" around the user that is just strong enough to contain a tiny amount of livable atmosphere. Life support boxes double the protection provided by vac seals and rebreathers. Without other protective gear, the life support box itself provides only 3 rounds of protection. The system also contains a high power distress beacon that the broadcasts the pilots precise coordinates to any ship within a parsec. The distress beacon can be manually deactivated, and can broadcast for s much longer time than its wearer can survive.



    Function: Grapple Line


      • Grapple lines are capable of supporting the weight of 1-2 people and can launch up to ranges typically up to 15 meters away. Once no longer in use, they are detached from the launcher and left behind. While hand-held grapple guns are capable of auto-winching, armor or wrist mounted devices lack this ability. Grapple lines must be manually activated and controlled by a button or switch.



    Function: Dart Launcher


      • Can launch a dart accurately up to 15m. This dart is filled with a fast-acting, short-lived sedative that can render near-humans unconscious, or a sedative tailored to one specific alien physiology. Typically lasts 3 posting rounds. The dart is incapable of penetrating even the lightest armor, or even thick leathers.

    Yeah, if you look at the comments I said the same thing about that writeup back in March but since Prudence is not active on the site no response was made regarding it. It's not a big deal, but I just thought I'd point that out to avoid continuity flaws.

    Well, I agree with you in truth. I doubt they were a company back then. In fact, I would venture to say all the Mando armor is custom made by specialized armorers on Mandalore. I will write as much. Good catch.

    I've seen lots of references to MandalMotors existing this timeline, even a plot regarding it.

    It's hardly an issue

    I am new to site, but not new to Mandalorians. I wonder if folks would be interested in collaborating on Mandalorian Lore/History for this Timeline? Something like that could certainly help new players. Darasuum? Up for something like that?

    See... I don't pay attention to that stuff so that's good to know.

    Sure thing.
