|Description:||A skeinsuit is made of light ballistic cloth. It absorbs damage just like an inertia screen. It also can be used along with an inertia screen. A character wearing both a skeinsuit and an inertia screen would take only one-fourth damage from ballistic attacks. The suit is ruined when it takes 50 points or more of damage.|
Note that blunt weapons such as fists, martial arts, clubs, nightsticks, etc., do not degrade a skeinsuit while the wearer still gains the benefits. For example, Mykel is hit for 13 points of damage by an opponent wielding a nightstick. The skeinsuit prevents 7 points of damage so Mykel only takes 6 points. His skensuit is not degraded by the attack.
Two types of skeinsuits are available: military and civilian. Military skeinsuits are camouflage green. Civilian skeinsuits look like regular clothing.
