The first major breakthrough of Darktech was the understanding of field manipulating materials. The mystical Island of Stability, what was thought to be a outlandish prediction of what matter would do at the heavier spectrum came true. The stable particles produced by these experiments yielded something beyond any one’s imagination. Now instead of the wealthy, elite, and powerful warlords having Darktech protection and weapons it was now a possibility for the “every man” to get them. While still expensive in the beginning it gave those thought to be nearly immortal a rude wake up call. With any one willing to take up arms given the chance to steal the power of the stars, it quickly turned into all out war. This war was later named The Unification Wars.
An example of Fieldtech is anything that involves field manipulation. Gravity, electro-magnetism, even the strong and weak nuclear force where not immune to its effects. Nearly anything space worthy has mag shields, one of the most common Fieldtech developments. But be warned, those that feel that this new technology made them invincible will figure out like the Darktech hoarders that equipment made to specifically counter it exist.
The most valuable Fieldtech will have to be Mirror shields. While not stronger then its Darktech counter parts, it boasts the unique ability to stop the mag shield ignoring properties of bonding weapons. Also its “mirror” sheen also deflects all but the most direct laser fire as well, making it very strong against the most prolific and powerful fire arms of the day. The only reason they are not outfitted on more suits, is the nearly megalithic monopoly Mars holds on the substance. Additionally The Empire keeps this trade very exclusive, zealously…
