It really was a nice Ride Armor.

Aramek 2217 with all the trimmings.

Which made it a pity that Chaucer was the one piloting it. He was what the charitable would call a novice. Fortunately, as with most vehicles in 21XX there was a dummy setting. To any real pilot using the AI for nearly all the functions would be sacrilege.

        The repeating plasma blasters of the Aramek 2217 were more than capable of mowing down the initial Raider response. Their plasma fire splashed more or less harmlessly over the reinforced armor as the ... more
