HKGames Helmet

Item

Image Gaming-Helmet25.jpg
Description This strange helmet is made of coppery wires and some sort of sticky resin. It looks fairly simplistic, actually, except for the processor bundles near the temples.

A label etched into one side reads "HKGames Prototype. Property of HKGames - Not for Sale or Distribution. Maximum Penalty of 25 Years Imprisonment and 100,000 Credit Fine." That would be scarier if they hadn't gone out of business recently.

On the other hand, Zaibatsu and Midgard seemed to be working together to take them down. That implies this is either completely unrelated to the feud or awesome.
