  • Aeon Clothing Question

    There is a suit worn by a character on the lower left of the front cover the Trinity Continuum: Aeon book and on p. 167 and p.213 of the Aeon Trinity core rule book in line art created Leif Jones in 1997. The suit covers the whole body except for the nose and mouth. On the front cover, there appears an electric spark around the abdomen, so perhaps it is used by electrokinetics. Does this suit have a name or a set of stats? I could not find any mention in any core rule books. Perhaps it was in the electrickinetic splat book, or some other book I have not read. Thanks.

    It's not covered in the current edition.

    In 1st Edition, it's found in America Offline, the Orgotek psi order book, on p. 119. It's an "Electrokinesis Enhancement Suit" (EES), often just called a "sparkle suit."

    It's been popularized in the TV series Strike Team Psion, where Dr. Sagar uses it to throw around lightning, but in reality the circuitry is too fragile to be worn in the field, and is more for researchers.

    In 1e terms, it adds four dots to your Psi for the purposes of effect ranges and durations for electrokinetic effects, and reduces Psi costs by one (to a minimum of one). It incorporates a biocomp, so you can transfer the contents of your own computer into it, and thus "think" commands into your computer while you're wearing the suit.

      Sounds possible to create using Super tech rules from Aeon.

      This +4 in Psi is not possible, but it had another meaning back in 1e, more like a +1 to Psi for TC standard.

        You could also increase area and duration of EK powers by 1 step as well.

          EES (rank 5)
          +* Increase Psi by 1
          +* Provide 1 Enhancement to a single Aptitude (EK)
          +** Increase the dots of all Modes in an Aptitude by * (EK)
          +* The device reduces the Psi point cost of the power by 1

          Note that Psi increase and Mode dot increase is only for EK effects calculation, not for other values, like Psi points or access to more powers, and can’t make it go above 5 dots in Psi or mode.

            So an IAD which reduces the cost of EK powers as well?

              Well, the description is basically that and the attached biocomp.

              The difference is it is a full body vest (that could be considered a -*).

              The biocomp can be added as an extra (same way weapons are added to armors).

                  Tech rules often apply Scale, so it adding 1 Scale to electrokinetic use I think might be an effective way to cover its various applications.
