    Helmets!

    Quick question about helmets.
    I take it that a helmets armor doesn't go up with increased quality otherwise they can become extremely Over-powered very quickly.

    So, why ever get a helmet that is above standard quality?

    Do battlesuits already have a helmet on them?

    Small questions, big problems

    I always think helmets! deserve an exclamation mark!

    Not every object does extra stuff at higher quality levels. A high quality compass still just points north, for example. But it will be a more valuable object. And if a check using the object is required (admittedly that's harder to imagine with a helmet than, say, a lockpick) then the equipment quality bonus applies to the dice pool.

    Surely a mastercraft compass would point to a much better place. A north above and beyond normal north. Norther than north.
