Energy shields are engineering items which grant additional Armour hits, the number of which varies depending on the shield’s design. Energy shields are created IC by characters with appropriate skills, and grant protection as specified on their lammie. They must be visibly worn to grant protection. The Vrede classes are issued with a vrede-tech Light Energy Shield at character creation. A character may benefit from the effects of only one energy shield. If you wear multiple energy shields, then none will give protection.
