The ashigaru were Shogunate units comprised of mortals trained as fast attack light infantry and scouts. To this end, their ashigaru skirmish armor aids wearers in reconnaissance and skirmish missions. Beings capable of channeling Essence may commit four motes to attune this armor.
Mortals may either use aegis-inset amulets or else commit one point of Willpower. Characters who
have committed Willpower to ashigaru armor at any time in a season age one extra week during that time. In appearance, the suit combines a helmet and a skintight bodysuit layered with light plates of magical alloys protecting the legs, arms and torso.
This armor offers no magical material bonuses, owing to its composite alloy construction.
