Astral Projectors
uncommon

These display non-obtrusive holographic imagesFor geckos who want pictures of their loved ones with them at all times. Or, more often than not, pictures of maps.

For geckos who are worried they'll crash land planetside, this suit has all you need to keep you comfortable until faction rescue comes.

Sentient Virus
uncommon

The Targari once developed a virus to infect the navigational systems of rival spaceships. For some reason, it gained superstitious status as ungetriddable, and people build separate bodies for them to infect so that they'll leave their ships alone (plus, they tend to have friendly personalities, and it's nice to have something to talk to).

Technical Swag
uncommon

Each of these is a hard drive containing different programs for aeronautic maneuvering. For geckos who like to tinker with their spaceship's computers. Originally invented by the Targari.

Cybernetic Wiring
uncommon

This armor has systems that allow a gecko to communicate with their spaceship's systems without leaving the bridge. Or sometimes, if they just get lonely. At least one gecko is said to have fallen in love with their spaceship through use of this system...which is especially curious, considering how strange a spaceship's personality tends to be.

Plutonic Plating
uncommon

Some spaceships run off epsilon crystals. They require a warm, dry environment to grow...like a gecko's body. This is considered slightly dangerous, as you need to consume enough calories and get enough sunlight to support both yourself and your crystal garden.

Geckos who distinguish themselves during training are often given these sashes.

Terraformers Uniform
uncommon

For geckos who came from the lunar colonies, or geckos who want to show support for such, considering their status as society's underdogs.

Body armor for geckos with a fashion sense.

Autonomous Carapace

uncommon

This enhancer helps geckos pick up transmissions from a large distance. It's easy to hear a ship gaining on you...and easy to figure out what they're going to do next.

Glassy Detectors
rare

These goggles are used to detect invisible aspects of the race such as proton streams, which can be harnessed to boost the speed of one's ship. The act of riding a solar wave is called "surfing the thermal."

Ionic Disruptors
rare

These can be used to disturb the electronics of a rival ship and are popular among saboteurs. Sometimes racers hire paid saboteurs to sneak aboard enemy spaceships to even the odds during a race...but being caught interfering with the Interstellar Relay means death, and they don't come cheap.

Budding Coral
rare

Geckos from the ocean planet of Targarius wear these as a symbol of their homelands.

rare

An unusually powerful weapon. Anyone who tries to sabotage your ship won't soon forget it. Technically contraband reserved for the Emperor Prime's military, but every gecko who can get their hands on one does anyway.

rare

Pets from the cave planet of Terratoria. Responsible for cave paintings on their native planet, they often decorate the inside of their spaceship's hull using their internal ink sacs.

rare

Eccentric geckos wear these. They claim it helps harness the innate power of the universe. Ancient gecko warriors used lit torches in a similar way.

Extendable Examiners
mythic

While they may look strange, these goggles allow a gecko to see a full light year ahead of them. It's a lot to take in, though, so some geckos with this equipment tend to get a little..touched, if they use them too often.

Galactic Inspectors
mythic

While it appears to be a simple diagnostic tool, Targari lore claims that use of this device allows a gecko to see into the "heart and soul" of their engine. Some claim to be able to use it to communicate in special ways with their ship.

Viral Intruder
mythic

Pet spider-crickets are sometimes kept by racers when they find them crawling around their ship, especially because they respond well to being armored. Wouldn't want anyone to step on them by accident...or on purpose.

A special kind of blowtorch, used as both a maintenance tool and, if need be, a weapon.

Colonels Finery
mythic

Worn by veterans of the Emperor's military, or in memory of a loved one who was.

Spectral Companion
mythic

Miniature Geckos
mythic

Sometimes you get stuck with babysitting duty.

Lunar Squid
mythic

These creatures can communicate telepathically. It is very rare for them to find a gecko they like, but when they bond with one, they're a friend for life.

Ghostly White
mythic

Geckos with albinism are said to have ancestry from a tribe that lived deep underground, in the caverns of their origin planet.

Spectral Black
mythic

Melanistic geckos don't often hatch. In the warrior age, they were raised as shamans from birth. Superstition still surrounds them: now they're considered blessed by the stars.

mythic

Initially the result of a botched Augmented mouth transplant, this set of teeth quickly became desirable to geckos constantly on the offensive.

ultra

For geckos who are brave enough to try to prove their might this way, flying close enough to snag a bit of a wormhole is a feat worthy of displaying on any gecko's armor.
