Revision as of 13:55, 14 April 2021

Arrow up 16x16.png Contents

Characters use equipment to make their efforts more successful. Equipment makes it easier to pick a lock, repair a vehicle, hack a computer, hurt someone, or resist being hurt. Unless otherwise noted, equipment has a power level (PL) rating of 1, adding 1 to the character's roll when attempting a skill roll.

Nothing physically prevents a character in ZeroSpace from carrying weapons and driving vehicles: there is no character point cost associated with ordinary weaponry and vehicles. However, there may be legal or financial obstacles to obtaining such equipment, even if it's relatively commonplace. All equipment requires periodic maintenance, but this usually happens when it is convenient for the character. If a tool or weapon ceases to function at an inconvenient time, the character will probably be granted a plot point by the GM.

Special Attack Types

Blinding

A successful blinding attack renders the target unable to see clearly. In hand-to-hand combat, a blinded character incurs a penalty die on their attack and defense rolls. In ranged combat, a blinded character incurs a penalty die on their defense rolls, but they automatically fail any ranged combat attack rolls. A blinded character suffers no penalty when defending against mental attacks, but they automatically fail any mental combat attack rolls.

To recover from a blinding attack, the target must use a standard action to make a challenging (DV 3) Perception (Reason) roll.

If the character has not recovered from the blinding attack by the end of the scene, then they recover their senses shortly thereafter.

Burst Fire

A weapon which fires multiple times per round, such as a repeating blaster, grants a bonus die. However, the attack is only resolved once. Whether the damage from an attack is inflicted by one discrete injury or twelve, it's all just one Ranged Combat roll. There's no "roll damage three times" mechanic like some game systems have.

Exploding

Exploding attacks inflict damage to everyone within a certain distance of the target -- everyone within short range (10 m), typically. The attacker rolls once for the explosion. Normally, each target in the affected area rolls individually against the attack, but if the GM prefers, she may roll once for each group of similar targets.

Penetrating

If an attack is penetrating, any of the defender's dice that show a "5" or "6" are re-rolled until the die rolls lower than 5.

Stunning

Damage from a stunning attack is temporary. Record it separately; it all comes back after the fight is over, when the character has had a chance to rest and recuperate.

Terrifying

A successful terrifying attack causes the target to involuntarily cower or flee (defender's choice). A cowering character incurs a penalty die on their defense rolls, while a fleeing character is granted a bonus die to their defense rolls.

To recover from a terrifying attack, the target must use a standard action to make a moderately difficult (DV 3) Survival (Presence) roll.

If the character has not recovered from the terrifying attack by the end of the scene, then they recover their composure shortly thereafter.

Armor

Armor provides protection against normal damage. The defense roll of a character wearing armor is equal to their relevant defense attribute (Brawn for hand-to-hand combat, Agility for ranged combat) plus the power level (PL) rating of the armor. Conventional armor does not stack with energy shields.

Armor ranges from thin and light fabrics, virtually indistinguishable from ordinary clothing, to heavy self-contained suits which can't be mistaken for anything other than what they are. Assault armor often has additional features aside from its defensive properties, such as life support, communication gear, and so on.

Heavier armor restricts a wearer's movements.


Table: Armor
Type PL Cost Notes
Light Tactical Attire 1 400 Cr maximum Agility 8
Medium Tactical Attire 2 800 Cr maximum Agility 7
Heavy Tactical Attire 3 1,600 Cr maximum Agility 6
Light Assault Armor 4 2,000 Cr maximum Agility 5
Medium Assault Armor 5 4,000 Cr maximum Agility 4
Heavy Assault Armor 6 8,000 Cr maximum Agility 3

Energy Shields

Energy shields provide protection against normal damage. The defense roll of a character with an energy shield is equal to their relevant defense attribute (Brawn for hand-to-hand combat, Agility for ranged combat) plus the power level (PL) rating of the energy shield. Energy shields do not stack with conventional armor.

Energy shields can be incorporated in a variety of devices, from a belt to a pair of bracelets to a harness.

Heavier shields restrict a wearer's movements. The effective Agility of a character using an energy shield may be limited.

Zniss Professional Protection Screen 4 8,000 Cr maximum Agility 5
Koltsov Interference Generator 5 16,000 Cr maximum Agility 4
Shadefan Exo Force Field 6 32,000 Cr maximum Agility 3

Hand-to-hand Weapons

Hand-to-hand weapons are typically useful up to a distance of one meter. Attacking more distant targets is more difficult or impossible (at the GM's discretion). If the GM declares that the attack is possible, the attacker incurs a penalty die. When making a Hand-to-hand Combat (Brawn) roll, the character may add the power level (PL) rating of the weapon to their roll.

Weapons which are described as being "two-handed" are more difficult to use with one hand. Someone making a Hand-to-hand Combat roll while holding a two-handed weapon with one hand incurs a penalty die on their attack.

Psiblades

Psiblades (also known as laser swords, star blades, sun swords, and so on) are hand-to-hand weapons which project a beam of energy approximately 9mm in diameter and from 50 cm to 150 cm long. When deactivated, the weapon appears as a cylinder 25 to 30 cm long. Because psiblades are usually handcrafted by the wielder, no two are alike. They may be ornate works of art or simple unadorned tools.

Damage from a psiblade is penetrating: any of the defender's dice that show a "5" or "6" are re-rolled until the die rolls lower than 5.

Psiblades usually have a "stun" setting. It is safe to assume that a given psiblade has such a setting, even if the user never enables it.

Psiblades are dangerous to those without the power of Premonition. The blade of a psiblade has no mass, which makes it difficult for the wielder to know where the blade is when she is not looking directly at it. If a character without Premonition fails an attack roll with a psiblade by more than three, they strike themselves with the blade and lose one Endurance.

Psistaves are essentially two psiblades attached at their bases. When deactivated, a psistaff appears as a cylinder 30 to 60 cm long (shorter psistaves typically extend in length to 50-60 cm when activated). A psistaff with both blades activated is even more dangerous to the wielder than a normal psiblade. If a character without Premonition fails an attack roll with a fully activated psistaff, even by one, they strike themselves with one of the blades and lose one Endurance.

A psilance is essentially a psiblade on a long spear-like handle. Psilances are less maneuverable than psiblades and psistaves, and much less concealable, but are much safer to wield. A character without Premonition who fails an attack roll with a psilance suffers no ill effects.

As with other two-handed weapons, someone making a Hand-to-hand Combat roll while holding a psistaff or psilance with one hand incurs a penalty die on their attack.

The energy blade of a psiblade is white when the weapon is first constructed, but gradually takes on a color based on the temperament of the user. Once this color is established, after a week or so of use, it does not change thereafter, even if the user does.


Table: Psiblade colors
Color Temperament
Red In a positive light, red indicates a healthy ego: someone powerful, sensual, passionate, and energetic. In a negative light, red indicates anger, an unforgiving nature, or anxiety.
Orange In a positive light, orange indicates productivity and creativity: someone sociable, detail oriented, and courageous. In a negative light, it can indicate stress and addictions.
Yellow Indicates optimism, and easy-going nature, inspiration, and intelligence.
Green Indicates balance, growth, and a willingness to change. It is a strong indication of a love of people, animals, and nature.
Turquoise Indicates a sensitive, compassionate nature, that of a healer or a counselor.

Short Range Weapons

Short range weapons are typically useful up to a distance of 10 meters. Attacking more distant targets is more difficult or impossible (at the GM's discretion). If the GM declares that the attack is possible, the attacker incurs a penalty die. When making a Ranged Combat (Agility) roll, the character may add the power level (PL) rating of the weapon to their roll.

Blasters usually have a "stun" setting. It is safe to assume that a given blaster has such a setting, even if the user never enables it.

Weapons which are described as being "two-handed" are more difficult to use with one hand. Someone making a Ranged Combat roll while holding a two-handed weapon with one hand incurs a penalty die on their attack.
