An Astral Templar’s moonstone armour is among the most formidable means of individual protection in Erj. Resistant to near-invincibility against melee and projectile weapons alike, most Templar enjoy a certain extra confidence in battle. So long, of course, as they are facing their opponent.

The weakness of Templar armour is its ash filtration system, which purifies inhaled air, allowing sylph to breathe freely outside of their home territory. This system—connected directly to to the wearer’s sternum—filters ash out of air as it is breathed, ejecting it through a large fan mounted in the rear. Though this fan is sturdy in its own right, it presents a prized target to a Templar’s adversary—should it be damaged or destroyed, the Templar has mere minutes before total asphyxiation.
