Reactive Plate is a Body item in Torment: Tides of Numenera.
Description[edit | edit source]
Unlike most armors made in the Ninth World, this breastplate was shaped from exotic materials like synthsteel and pliable metal, scavenged from the wreckage of prior worlds. Only a few armor-smiths could accomplish such a feat, so armor of this quality is rare and prized. A tiny module containing a simple machine intelligence has also been incorporated into the armor. It perceives the nature of incoming attacks and attempts to modify the material composition of the breastplate to better protect the wearer. This is far more effective against physical attacks, but the armor provides a lesser measure of protection against chemical, transdimensional, and other forms of damage.
