Stoneskin gland

Stoneskin gland

This bionic gland releases chemicals and nanomachines that transform the user's skin into a built-in suit of armor. The whole epidermis thickens and hardens to resist burns, while jointed exterior keratin plates form everywhere they can - including the head and face. While it's very difficult to physically hurt someone using this implant, the plates and hard skin significantly reduces the user's physical attractiveness.

The Stoneskin Gland is an implant added by the Royalty DLC that gives a pawn that's been implanted with it a bonus to Sharp/Blunt/Heat Armor by 70/30/50% respectively, as well as reducing beauty by 2 and slowing the pawn by 15%.

It provides a moderate amount of protection, though not to the point where it's "very difficult" to hurt a user.

Acquisition

It is made with Plasteel 25 Plasteel and Advanced component 8 advanced components at the fabrication bench, after the Skin Hardening research is completed. The required techprint can be obtained either by trade or completing quests for the Empire. They require a crafting skill of 8.
