Legacy Power: Mark 16 Power Armor-mounted Mobile Shielding Projector

"Oh yeah? Hit me! Hit me you buggy sumb*tch!"

A 1 Gift Barrier Power used by Johnny Vasquez, created by Redchigh.


Mark 16 Shielding is an experimental prototype from Terran Labs. Able to be mounted onto lightweight drones, escape pods, or even mobile infantry, it presents the fruition of decades of research into particle shielding R&D. Simply by hitting one of two buttons, mounted in the left glove, or the inside of the helmet by the chin, the squad leader or commanding officer can project a formidable field in a 15' radius around them to protect troops, buy a moment to think, or even help survive a bumpy crash..


Exert your Mind, choose an Animate target within Arm's Reach, and roll Brawn + Culture Difficulty 6 as a Committed Action. If you succeed, the next Outcome + 2 Damage to that target is absorbed by the barrier. The Damage reduction from the Barrier applies before Armor, and is treated like Armor by any effects such as Armor Penetration.

You must maintain concentration while using this Power. That means you can only move at a slow walk, and cannot split your Action between using the Power and other Actions. The Barrier will fall if you are interrupted or if it absorbs the full amount of damage. When a Barrier falls, you cannot use this power again for a minimum of 6 - Intellect rounds.


  • Bubble Shield (Your barrier’s strength is doubled, and it protects everyone within a 15 foot radius of your primary target. However, any attacks that originate from inside the radius will not be absorbed.)
  • Too Slow! (You may activate this Effect as a Reaction.)
  • Persistent Shielding (The barrier regenerates back to full strength at the end of each round of combat. It will still fall if the full amount of damage is dealt within a single round, or if you are interrupted.)


  • Focus (Using this Effect requires a specific kind of item.)
    • Object - Power Armor
  • Selfish (You may only target yourself.)
  • Unique Focus (This Power takes the form of a specific, unique item, which can be borrowed, lost, or stolen.)
    • Focus - Power Armor mounted shield battery


Barrier Strength: 2 ( Outcome + 2 ) Range: 0 ( Arm's Reach )
