Every player is a character, a person who travels through dangerous terrain and fights vicious creatures to find treasures of the past and to succeed their goals.

Assuming you weren't just made 5 seconds ago, you had a life before adventuring. You were trained or made to fill a role in society. Perhaps you left from that role, perhaps you were kicked out of it. You might even still be part of that profession, and this (or the profession) may just be something you do on the side. Whatever it is, your background decides your skills, as well give you a bonus to one of your stats. Some backgrounds are: Adventurer From treasure seekers to explorers, to trophy hunters and nomads, adventurers call the destroyed roads their home and transverse the blasted world for any number of reasons. Adventurer skills include Lore, Notice and Survival. With all the traveling, not to say nothing of the dangers of it, adventurers gain a +1 to Vigor.
Aristocrat The highest of the hierarchy, aristocrats are (or were) on the top of the political and social ladder. While most are content to sit in their comfy, reclying thrones and eating sweets without any holes in the wrapper, some grow bored of their pampered lives and seek something more. Aristocrat skills include Bluff, Persuade and Lore. Even though some aren't particularly charming, aristocrats are used to their commanding social positions and know at least how to talk to people, aristocrats gain a +1 to Charm. Artist Despite the lack of materials and a lot of distracting head-eating mutants, creativity still blooms after the boom. Painters, sculptors, writers and fashion designers (outside the normal “moth eaten rag” line) are only a few kinds of artists out in the blasted world. Artist skills include Bluff, Craft and Lore. Because of their expressive natures, artists gain a +1 to Charm. Athlete From experienced arena fighters to amateur “futboll” players, athletes are the enteriners with less subtly and more bruises.

After heavy conditioning and long hours of exertion, athletes gain a +1 to Might. Boss The middle class of the new world, bosses include merchants, crafters and managers. They often live in a cozy place after the catastrophe, but some have to get around for some reason, whether it's for trade, a high goal or simple boredom. Boss skills include Persuade, Insight and Lore. Since being a member of the middle class includes managing buisness strategy well, learning a complex craft and just being clever, bosses gain a +1 to Smarts. Criminal While most new societies have quite a bit of freedom, there will always be someone there to try and abuse that freedom. Burglars, thieves, con artists and assassins just fit a few of the criminals found in a world after the bomb. Some find that there's more buisness raiding through an abandoned ruins than through someones pockets, so criminals adapt well to the exploring career. Criminal skills include Disable Device, Steal and Stealth. Since criminals have to quick on their feet and jump on a target at the last second, criminals gain a +1 to Agility. Entertainer Providing the survivors of the world with an escape, entertainers include actors, dancers, musicians and other graceful performers. While it's often that entertainers travel in troupes of their fellow kind, giving a show to any town not pointing a gun at their head, some wonder away from fellows, using whatever skills they posses to survive. Entertainer skills include Acrobatics, Bluff and Preform. Since nobody likes a clumsy performer not played for laughs and entertainers have a predisposition to flightiness, entertainers gain a +1 to Agility.
Healer Doctors, medical bots and tribe healers, healers have (or have to) devoted themselves to curing the sick and wounded. While a healer can be a community's most prized asset in a time where hospitals themselves need a little healing, healer's knowledge of the body and how to use or exploit it are a valuable skill in the ruin searching life. Healer skills include Persuade, First Aid and Insight. Since medicine and diagnosis are important part of their profession, healers gain a +1 to Aware. Hunter From food gatherers to bounty hunters, hunters search for living prey for prize. The bigger the prey, the bigger the pay. It's no surprised then that hunters look for bigger prey in the world. Hunter skills include Athletics, Intimidate and Notice. Since hunters need a lot of muscle to take down their chosen prey and haul them back, hunters gain a +1 to Might. Laborer Laborers represent the lowest class of society, blue collar workers who hard work for bosses and aristocrats. Farmers, factory workers, builders and slaves all fall into the laborer profession. Hoping for something better, laborers often leave their jobs for something better, usually behind a laser shooting robot. Laborer skills include Athletics, Insight and Notice. Since manual labor requires a lot of stamina, laborers gain a +1 to Vigor. Priest Even with all the despair and dangers the new world has (or maybe because of them), there is a strong craving for something to look up to. Many priests look to the past for faith, finding old texts on religion and adding new rules for the new world (most commonly “,,,and survive doing it!”). Some priests are actually leaders of organizations and cryptic alliances. Because a priests often seek to spread their beliefs, and often have to face danger to do so. Priest skills include First Aid, Insight and Lore. Since priests require strong belief in order for their faith to flourish, so priests gain a +1 to Aware. Scavenger Scavengers are pack rats, junk dealers, jury-riggers and any other characters that look through ruble to find treasure. They are seasoned expeditioners and often have experience with old ruins. Because of this, they often come into the ruin raiding rather easily. Scavenger skills include Disable Device, Insight and Repair. Because of they need a strong intuition to find treasure from trash, scavengers gain a +1 to Aware. Scholar From librarians to teachers to simple sages, scholars are the wielders of the powerful tool of knowledge. Though some are content with being with their books, scrolls and digital equipment, some realize that there's more knowledge in the world then in their small rooms, even if they have
to fight to get it. Scholar skills include Lore, Insight, Notice. The very definition of information and knowledge, scholars gain a +1 to Smarts. Scientist From physicists to techies, scientists who use their minds to create (even creating to destroy). Scientists are the builders of society, making advances and discoveries known to only those past and used now. Scientists often make ventures into the wilderness to find new schematics, devices or just inspiration. Scientist skills include Computers, Notice and Repair. Since a creative and quick mind is necessary to be an engineer, scientists gain a +1 to Smarts. Spy Even after the bombs fell, espionage and subterfuge still have their uses. Agents, moles and sometimes thieves, spies fight silent battles. They infiltrate and act their way through their given missions. Spies often find themselves traveling from place to place, either because of a need to travel or get kicked out. Spy skills include Bluff, Disguise and Stealth. Because they must be agile and need to be coordinated to do their work well, spies gain a +1 to Agility. Warrior From tribal warriors to elite mercenaries, warriors are the soldiers of the new world. Warriors are trained to protect their friends, their communities and themselves against the horrid, laser-shooting dangers of now. With their training, ability to survive the hardest terrain and work as defenders, it's little surprise that warriors use their abilities in the wastes. Warrior skills include Athletics, Insight and Intimidate. With their harsh training and their need to be strong, warriors gain a +1 to Might.

If you roll under the number. Some skills are used to ifluenced others. These are marked with the word "Influence" in parenthesis. They shift people and creatures toward your side. Of course, it's easier or harder to do that depending on they're attitude to you. Here are list of attitudes, and the bonus or penalty you gain on influencing them. Attitude Hostile Unfriendly Indifferent Examples Will try to beat or kill you on sight (or whatever) Wishes you bad karma and doesn't want to help you Doesn't really care or is neutral to you Bonus/Penalty -10 -5 0

Money makes the world go around. Well, it did, anyway. Paper and coin have been tossed to the side in all but the most secluded and orderly of places. Random but useful junk has become the new currency of the world after the end. Trade is determined by bartering and exchanging different goods. Instead a specific amount of currency, items are measured by Trade Units, also known as TU. Buying items cost full price, whileselling items use half their price.

When negotiations fail (or are never started), there's always a weapon. Weapons are items used to enhance you're offensive capabilities. Weapons are divided into four categories: melee, ranged, thrown and bombs. Melee and thrown weapons can be used up close, while ranged, thrown and bomb weapons can be used at a distance. Weapons include: Chopper: Weapons, such as swords, axes, saws, whips, chainsaws, vibroblades and beam swords, that are used to cut things. Light and Medium choppers can be held in one hand, while Heavy choppers require both. Basher: Weapons, such as maces, flails, clubs, hammers, staffs, bats, crowbars, shovels, batons and powerfists, that are used to bludgeon things. Light and Medium bashers can be held in one hand, while Heavy bashers require both. Stabber: Weapons, such as knives, spears, picks, spikes, shivs, pokers, drills, forks and energy pikes, that pierce into things. Light and Medium stabbers can be held in one hand, while Heavy stabbers require both. Pistols: Light ranged weapons held in one hand, such as magnums, hand crossbows, laser pistols, nail shooters, flintlock pistols and Zzzzzapers!TM. Pistols are usually duel-wielded, as a cheap alternative or for a last defense. Rapid Fire: These weapons such as compound bows, submachine guns, assault rifles, railguns and beam rifles, can shoot many times before needing to reload. Burst Shots: These weapons, such as POW!-er gloves, sawed-off shotguns, bee launchers and wave guns, are built to do devastating blasts at close range. Boomsticks: These weapons, such as crossbows, hunting rifles, laser rifles and plasma blasters, are built for mid to long range combat. Longshots: These weapons, such as sniper rifles, steambows, percision beams and blowguns, are built for long range and often hidden attacks. Heavy Dutys: These weapons, such as blunderbusses, miniguns and proton packs, shoots large, precise slugs or high-speed bullets to tare apart a target. Plasmas: These weapons, such as an alchemist blaster, chemical throwers and M.E.R.D.'s, shoot streams of chemicals that become volatile and harmful energies. Energies include acid, fire, frost and lightning, and switching between energy types is a free action. Ammo for plasmas only cover one type of energy. Boomers: These weapons, such as man-o-pults, potato launchers, bazookas, grenade launchers and anti-matter rays, launch powerful explosive-infused ammo into a precise spot. Thrown: These weapons, such as shurikens, throwing knives, javalins, charkams, darts, bolas and yo-yos, can be used in either melee or ranged combat. Once used in melee combat, a thrown weapon can not be used until retrieved. Frags: Bombs, such as hand grenades, dynamite, pipe bombs, Gamma-Tonic & Minty Mints bottles, and gravitators, blow up in a loud, flashy explosion. Stuners: Bombs, such as blinding powder, flash bombs, and mind-scramblers, disable targets in it's
radius. Targets who fail their save against a stunner receive a -2 to attacks, Defense and saves for 5 turns. Mines: Bombs, such as nail bombs, land mines, C-4 and stickers, blow up when a target steps within 5 feet. Energy: Bombs, such as molotov cocktails, acid flasks and plasma orbs, light up in a blast of energy. Energy bombs come in acid, fire, frost, lightning and sonic types. Smokers: Bombs, such as smoke grenades, darkness generators and air-squid launchers, block the line of sight for characters. Armor If a weapons are used to prove a point, than armor is the counter point. Armor increases you're Defense, making it harder to hit you. Armor comes in three categories: Light, Heavy and Shield. Armor comes in two variaties: mobile and reinforced, while shields come in three sizes: small, large and great. Light Armor: Armor made out of light-weight, but hardy materials such as wood, bone, soft metal, plastic, thick rubber, kevlar, light forcefields and strong leathers, hides and scales. Light armor provides less protection than heavy armor, but you move at normal speed and can apply your Agility or Smarts modifier to your Defense (whichever is higher). Light armor takes 5 turns to put on. Heavy Armor: Armor made out of heavy, strong materials such as hard metals, hard plastics, crystal, strong forcefields, powerful nanites and parts of very strong animals. While it provides the best protection armor can have, but your speed is lowered and you can't apply your Agility or Smarts modifier to your Defense. Heavy armor takes 1 minute to put on. Mobile: A variety of armor that is usually more flexible, has sectioned plates or has it's material thinned. Mobile armor has a lower Defense bonus but has a lower skill and speed penalty. Reinforced: A variety of armor that is usually made with extra materials, more coverage or is made thicker. Reinforced armor has a higher Defense bonus but has a higher skill and speed penalty. Shield: Sheilds are straped to the arm and are used to deflect attacks and block attacks. Shields are straped or held on your offhand and only need a move action to put on. Shields come in three sizes: small, large and great. You can hold items (but not weapons) in your offhand with a small shield, but not a large or great one. For triple their cost, small and large shields can double as throwing weapons, small counting as light and large counting as heavy. Gear Practically is king in a world after the bomb, and versatility is the queen. There's a whole court of utilitarian terms, but none of them involve items right now. Gear is a catch all term for useful items that don't fall into stuff used for smashing stuff or defending against smashes. Gear includes: Med Kit: From ground herbs to a first aid kit to cell regeneration sprays, med kits allow you to heal organic characters and devices with the First Aid skill. A med kit is used up after 5 uses. Repair Kit: From a simple tool kit to nano-converters, repair kits allow you to heal synthetic
characters and devices with the Repair skill. A repair skill is used up after 5 uses. Tool Kit: From a smith's hammer to a musical instrument, tools are used to preform certain tasks that don't fall under any of the gear here. Water Canteen: From an actual canteen to a water bottle to an auto-hydrator, a water canteens are used to hold a gallon of water, but can hold any non-caustic substance (like the stuff that would burn you're hands if you tried getting it in). Food: Anything that fit's in your mouth and gives sustenance without drop-to-your-knees-in-anhour pain is considered food. Light, Torch: A torch light, from an actual torch to a glow stick to a luminance cube, sheds light with 30 feet, negating the miss chance from darkness within the radius. Torch lights use energizers. Light, Pinpoint: A pinpoint light, from a bullseye lantern to a flashlight to an shade canceler, sheds light in a 60-foot cone, negating the miss chance from darkness within the radius. Pinpoint lights use energizers. Pouch: A small container of any kind, a pouch adds 5 pounds to your encumbrance limit. Backpack, Light: A sling over the shoulder case, a light backpack adds 15 pounds to your encumbrance limit. Backpack, Heavy: A rather large container, a heavy backpack adds 30 pounds to your encumbrance limit. Scopes: From a spyglass to binoculars to range finders, scopes double your range of sight. This provides a +2 to Notice checks relating to sight. Geiger Counter: A small device that is capable of detecting radiation, the geiger counter does just that, showing the level of radiation an object or creature carries. Geiger counters use energizers. Time Keeper: Pocket watch, digital wrist watch and holograph clock; all keep time and possibly date. Time keepers use energizers. Fire Maker: From a match to a lighter to a solar discharger, a fire maker lights things aflame. Firmakers use energizers. Map: A guide to the geography of a certain place, maps include 20 mile area maps, a road atlas, a city guide and a world map. Navigator: From a lodestone to a compass to a fully automated GPS, a navigator shows what direction you're going. Rope: A length of twisted fibers, usually made from cloth, plastic or metals, ropes are used for climbing or pulling things. Survival Gear: A piece of equipment that allows you to be comfortable and not dead in a specific environment. They don't provide totally immunity, but it gives a bonus. Gear types include heat, cold, altitude and radiation. There's also the vacuum/space variety, but that costs double.
Video/Audio Recorder: From a disposable camera to a hologram recorder to a shoulder parrot, a video/audio recorder stores and repeats up to 2 hours of video or audio. Video and audio recorders cost twice as much. Video/Audio recorders use energizers. Communicators: From two walkie talkies to a SAT com network to a pair of psionic cups with strings attached, communicators allow two characters to talk with each other on up to 5 different channels. Communicators use energizers. Entertainment Device: From an MP5 to a portable TV to a Gamebuddy, entertainment devices stave off one of the new world's most fatal dangers: boredom. Entertainment devices give a +3 bonus to influence when used as a gift or bribe. For triple the cost, an entertainment device can be rigged to pick up radio and digital signals. Entertainment devices use energizers. Pad: Fom a journal to a PDA to an acutal datapad, books and datapads hold about 40 pages, usually taking notes, doing complex math, sketching and, most importantly, expressing your feelings and doodling. Energizers: From batteries to fusion cells to little oil to even food, energizers are used to power. Everytime a device that uses an energizer is used, roll a d20. If you roll a 1, the energizers are dead and need to be recharged. Alternately, every 3 hours the device is left on, make the roll. Recharger: From an alchemist lab to a solar power to a synthetic oil generator, a recharger charges energizers. A recharger can charge 2 energizers at a time. When plugged into an electrical outlit, it only takes 2 hours to charge both energizers. If you feed it a half gallon of gasoline, it takes 4. If you feed it a half gallon of ethanol, it takes 6 hours. If left out in the sun (or heat source), it takes 8 hours. For double the cost, a recharger can charge 4 energizers at a time. Gasoline/Good Feed: Gasoline and good feed is used to fuel movers and allow them to move an optimum efficiency and speed. Ethanol: Ethanol and poor feed is used to fuel mover and while it does slow it down somewhat, it's cheaper than gasoline or the good stuff. Hunger & Thirst One of the greatest treasures after the bombs fell isn't gold or gems, but water and food (preferably with sprinkles). Characters need at least half a gallon of water and a half pound of food to survive. For every day you go without eating and drinking, a character takes a -1 on attacks, Defense, saves and skill checks until after 7 days, after which they die (or run out of power). If they can eat, but not drink, these penalties only come every 2 days. If they can drink but not eat, these penalties only come every 4 days. Diet Food & Water Water Food Nothing Penalty per Day None Every 4 days Every 2 days Every day Death When someone does you in... Day 28 Day 14 Day 7
Reaction Roll At the beginning of combat, each character and target rolls for their reaction roll to see who goes first, second, third, etc. The players roll for the characters, while the referee rolls for Reaction is determined by d20 + your Agility modifier + any other modifiers. If only one side of the fight knows of their opponents, only the aware side rolls. Any characters or targets caught unaware gain a -2 to Defense and Saves until the beginning of their turn. Action Each character and target gains a certain amount of time allowed to do on their turn. This is represented by actions. Each character has four action options: free, move, attack and full. You can preform an attack action and a move action (or vice versa), two move actions, or one full action. Attacking Each character and target has the ability to attack. Whether this is with their fists, a pistol or some kind of strange combination between a shotgun and a nuclear weapon is up to them, but all attacks share the same basic formula depending on whether it's a melee attack or a ranged attack.Melee Roll: d20 + attack bonus + your Might modifier + sizeRanged Roll: d20 + attack bonus + your Agility modifier + size – range penaltyA size bonus/penalty depends on your size and what kind of attack it is. If larger than Medium, add your size bonus when using a melee attack, and subtract when using a ranged attack. If smaller than Medium, subtract your size modifier when using a melee attack, and add when using a melee attack.If your attack roll is the same or better than the target's Defense, roll for damage. Damage When you hit someone or something, roll for damage. Damage is based on the damage die for your weapon. When attacking with a melee weapon, add your Might modifier. Protection Protection measures how hard is to take you and others down. Protections include: Defense: How hard it is to hit you. The higher, the better. This is increased by your armor, shield, Agility modifier, natural armor and any other modifiers. Body: How much you can physically stand or resist something, such as disease, radiation and poison. This is increased by your Might or Vigor modifier and other modifiers. Swift: How well you can dodge an effect, such as area attacks like explosions and traps. This is increased by your Agility or Smarts modifier and other modifiers. Mind: How well you can resist mental effects, such as some psionic abilities, psychological effects and attempts to control your mind. This is increased by your Aware or Charm and other modifiers. Heath Points The golden rule in the world (besides the obvious, more moral one) is if it moves, it might as well be alive. Everybody, character or target, actually alive or reanimated, has health points (or HP). If
protection shows how hard it is to take down something, HP show how long it takes. To determine your health points, roll your health die a number of times equal to your level. Add your Vigor modifier to the rolls. For example, if you have a d10 hit die, 14 Vigor and are level 4, roll 1d10 and add your Vigor modifier 4 times. You start out with the max die result at level one. When you are lowered to 0 HP, you are staggered. While staggered, you take 1 damage every turn. You can take a move or standard action on your turn, but you take an additional 1 damage. When you reach -10 HP you die. A DC 15 First Aid/Repair check brings the target up to 1 HP (DC 20 for an inappropriate target). You can also roll a d20 to stabilize, DC 15. You add your Vigor score to this roll. You heal 1 HP every 10 minutes and heal your level + your Vigor modifier HP points after a 6 hour rest. Speed Speed measures how fast you can move on a turn. You can move double your speed if you take a double move action. Auto-hits and Misses When you roll a 20, you hit the target regardless of the target's Defense and score a critical hit. When you roll a 1, you automatically miss, regardless of your attack bonus as well as fumble. Critical Hits and Fumbles When you roll a 20 while attacking, you deal a critical hit. A critical hit deals double damage. Some weapons (particularly melee weapons) do special critical hits, such as doing more damage and scoring on a lower roll. When you roll a 1 while attacking, you fumble. Your attack not only fails, but you gain a -5 penalty to attacks on your next turn. Flanking While attacking a target in melee with an ally also attacking them, you gain a +1 to attack rolls. Aiming You take a move action with a ranged weapon to gain a +2 to attack roles. Helping You can grant a character a +2 to an attack, Defense or a saving throw on their turn by taking a standard action. Grabing When making an unarmed attack, you can try to wrestle a target instead of doing damage. When you hit a target, you can go into the targets space, making you both unable to move on land. While in this state, you and the target can attack with unarmed and light melee attacks, pistols, psionics,
tech and mutations, but take a -4 to attacks and a -2 to Defense. You can get out with another successful attack roll. Two-Weapon Fighting While fighting with two weapons, you gain a extra attack based on the circumstances. These penalties apply to both you're weapons depending on which hand it's in. Circumstances No exploits and no light weapons Secondary weapon is light or a pistol Two Weapon Offense exploit Both of the above Primary Weapon -6 -4 -4 -2 Secondary Weapon -6 -4 -4 -2
Let's face it. It's pretty damn inconvienient to walk everywhere after the apocalypse. Many vehicles Stats Movers have 4 stats: force, mobility, state and space. Force is the amount of damage a mover can do. Every time you win a roll against your opponent, you lower the mover's state by the amount of Force you're mover have. Mobility is how many spaces the mover can move. Making a turn require two spaces. State is the condition of the vehicle. Every time the vehicle is damage, subtract from the vehicle's State. A mover's state is increased every for every 2nd level of the driver. Space is how much you can store in a mover. You can store objects, modifications and people with space. A driver takes up one space. Fuel Movers require fuel to move. Movement lasts as long as the fuel does. You can only have one kind of fuel at a time. Fuel includes: Gasoline: Movers can move 10 turns per gallon of gasoline with no bonus or cost to moblity. Ethanol: Movers can move 5 turns per gallon of ethanol and at -1 mobility. Actions Movers have a number of actions, the same as characters. Movers have different actions than characters or targets. Free: Used to talk, stop and reverse. Move: Used to move at the Mover's speed.
Standard: Used to attack and move at double speed. Moving at double speed requires 2 gallons of fuel. Full: Used to go turbo. You move at five times your speed. Moving while in turbo requires 5 gallons of fuel. Combat Fighting with movers is like fighting in melee unless you have the Ranged mod; you have to next to the other mover in order to attack. When you or the other driver attack, each driver must roll a d20. Whoever has the highest roll attacks and subtracts their Force from the target's State. Mover-to-Person Comabat You can use your mover while in regular combat. It takes a standard action to move and a full action to attack, and you can only move at half speed. Free actions remain the same. You also take a -2 to attacks and Defense. The Road Warrior exploit lessens these penalties. A mover does 2d8 damage for every point of Force A mover has a speed of 15 for every point of Mobility A mover has 20 HP for every point of State.
Sure, regular weapons, armor and movers are good by themselves, but wouldn't it be better to have a shotgun that can shoot lightning caps instead of regular caps? Or, say a truck with a mounted laser canon on it? That's where mods come in. Mods are add ons for your weapons, armor and vehicles. Mods are used to help make combat and, in general, lives much easier. Mods come in two forms: enhancements and add-ons. Enhancements make an item better at what they already do, while add-ons add a new feature. Weapon Mods Weapon mods increase your ability to attack and deal damage. All moded weapons have an enhancement bonus, an increase in attacks and damage ranging from 1 to 3. In order to have an addon, the weapon must have an enhancement bonus. Enhancement bonuses stack, so if you have a +1 weapon and wish to increase it's bonus to +2, you just have to pay 10 TU instead of 20. The costs ofenhancement bonuses are: Equipment Bonuses +1 +2 +3 Cost +10 +20 +30
Add-ons, meanwhile, give abilities such as energy damage or the ability to leave bloody wounds.

This may be an item, a shield, even another weapon! A weapon with a secondary weapon can be used for two-weapon fighting, but they incur the normal penalties. Switching between the uses is a free action. This mod is worth half the TU of the added item. Shrunk The weapon has been shrunk down to a smaller size, decreasing it's damage but making it more precise. A Shrunk weapon lowers its damage die by one, but improves it's critical damage by one step (Double to Triple, Triple to Quadruple, etc.). Only ranged weapons can be shrunk. This mod is worth 4 TU.

Weather You move through snow, sleet and rain to do whatever it is your doing. Weather comes in a number of forms, but a few are something to particularly worry about. Rain: Heavy rainfall obscures and weighs down people and objects. Characters and targets can only
see within 50 feet of themselves, and gain a -2 penalties to Notice and ranged attack rolls. Fires without any kind of protection are extinguished. In a particularly bad storm, increase penalties to Notice and ranged attack rolls to -4. In addition, lightning arcs down, dealing to 3d6 lightning damage to a random target. Snow: Snow is cold and hard to move in. Treat a snow storm as rainfall, while also decreasing speed by 10 feet and giving. If the snow becomes incredibly heavy (say, after about 2 hours) decrease speed by 20 feet and treat the vision as if in the dark (miss chance and all). Lightning may arc down, dealing 2d6 lightning damage to a random target. Hail: It's a no-brainer that being under falling balls of ice would hinder you a little. Acrobatics and Notice checks take a -4 penalty. All targets without shelter also take 1 damage per turn. Cold It's only a few degrees that separates chilly from “freeze-to-death” weather. Whether because of nuclear winter or a natural arctic, the cold can be as deadly as a horde of zombies. Cold only deals damage if it's under 20 degrees. Before that, the cold is uncomfortable, providing a -2 to skill checks. At 20 to -10 degrees, cold becomes frigid cold and starts dealing 1 frost damage per minute in addition to the penalties. At -10 to -30 degrees, frigid cold becomes immense cold and starts dealing 3 frost damage per minute. In addition, immense cold provides a -2 on attack and skill checks. At -30 degrees and bellow, immense cold becomes hellrime cold and starts dealing 5 frost damage per turn. In addition, hellrime cold provides a -4 on attack and skill checks. Wearing heavy winter clothing (such as those provided by cold survival gear) provide immunity to the effects of regular and frigid cold, and negates the damage from immense cold. Heat Some like it hot, but nobody likes it when it becomes boiling. Whether from a natural heat wave to a deadly case of regional warming, heat can be dangerous. Heat only deals damage at 100 degrees or above. Before that, heat is just uncomfortable, giving a -2 on skill checks. At 100 to 130 degrees, heat becomes insufferable heat and starts dealing 1 fire damage per minute in addition to penalties. In addition, you must eat and drink double the amount to survive. At 130 to 150 degrees, insufferable heat becomes intense heat and starts dealing 3 fire damage per minute. In addition, intense heat provides a -2 on attack and skill checks. At 150 degrees and above, intense becomes abysmal heat and starts dealing 5 fire damage per turn. In addition, abysmal heat provides a -4 on attack and skill checks, and you must eat and drink quadruple the amount to survive.
Wearing very spacious and heat reflecting clothing (such as those provided by heat survival gear) provide immunity to the effects of regular and insufferable heat, and negates the damage from intense heat. Altitude As awesome as standing on a plane would be, there's a reason people don't do it: One, you can fall and die (see below) and two, it gets very hard to breathe. Altitude represents how far characters go upward. From 5,000 feet and below, characters suffer no penalties from altitude, mostly because they're still on the ground. From 5,000 feet to 15,000 feet, characters suffer a -2 on attack, Defense and skill checks. From 15,000 feet and above, character take 1 damage per turn in addition to the penalties above. Using altitude gear negates the penalties of going up 5,000 to 15,000 feet. Falling Even with the tallest building and mountain ranges leveled, you should still watch where you step. Character take 1d6 damage for every 10 feet they fall. If a character falls on to a soft surface (water, hay, pillows), the damage is halved. If the character succeeds an DC 15 Acrobatics check, they ignore 1d6 damage and 1d6 more damage if they exceed the check by every 5 more. Falling Objects If savage robots and killer mutants weren't enough, now even the sky can be dangerous. When an object falls on a character, it deals 1d6 damage for every 15 pounds and 20 feet fallen, an object deals 1d6 damage. Radiation Radioactivity doesn't always end with mutation and snazzy crime fighters. Most of the time, radiation degrades even the most hardy characters. When exposed to a radioactive source, a character must make a Body save to resist or half radiation and every hour after exposure. If they fail, they take Vigor damage, and if they're Vigor goes down to zero, they turn in swallow, glowing corpses. Radiation Level Low Mild Moderate Strong Body Save 13 15 17 20 Damage per Minute 1 Vigor 1d4 Vigor 1d6 Vigor 1d8 Vigor Save Damage Max Mutation Value 1 Vigor 2 Vigor 1d4 Vigor 1 2 4 6
For every 1 Vigor damage you take, there is 10% of gaining of a mutation. There's 30% chance of it being a benefit, and a 70% chance of it being a drawback. The mutation has a maxiumum value
according to the radiation level. Radiation survival gear gives a +5 bonus to Body saves against radiation. Wind Perhaps one of the must subtle hazards, air is something hardly to be afraid off...or is it?! It kinda is, depending on wind and all. Wind can hider and even kill characters under the right circumstances. Effects are based on the force of the wind. Light winds don't do anything more than pick small things up from the ground and faze a few people. Strong Winds are a bit different. Strong winds cause a -1 penalty on Notice and ranged attack rolls, and cause unsheltered fires to go out. Severe winds are even stronger. Severe winds provide a -2 on Notice and ranged attack rolls, and can even stop Small targets from moving if they don't succeed a DC 10 Body save. Windstorms are able to root branches and blow away stray metal. Windstorms provide a -4 on Notice and ranged attack rolls, and can stop Medium targets from moving if they don't succeed a DC 12 Body save, and knock Small targets down if they don't succeed a DC 13 Body save. Land vehicles take a -1 to Mobility, while water and air vehicles take a -2. All fires are extinguished. Hurricane force winds are able to root trees from the ground and break apart glass, plaster and some lgiht metals. Windstorms provide a -6 on Notice and ranged attack rolls, and can stop Large targets from moving if they don't succeed a DC 15 Body save, while Medium targets are knocked down if they don't succeed a DC 16 Body save, and Small targets are blown away 10 feet in any direction if they don't succeed a DC 17 Body save. Land vehicles take a -2 on Mobility, while water and air vehicles take a -4 on mobility checks. Tornado force winds can destroy plants and building, even entire towns in a few minutes. Tornados provide a -10 on Notice checks, while ranged attacks can't be made. Huge and larger targets are stopped from moving if they don't succeed a DC 20 Body save, while Large targets are knocked down if they don't succeed a DC 22 Body save. Medium and smaller targets are blown 15 feet in any direction if they don't succeed a DC 25 Body save. Land vehicles take a -4 on mobility, while water and air vehicles can't go anywhere at all and risk crashing. Anyone who actually goes into a tornado risks being sucked in unless they succeed a DC 30 Body save. If sucked up, the target takes 3d6 damage for 1d6 turns. Afterwards, they are thrown out (and may take falling damage). Water Sure, water is great; you can drink it, bathe in it, even make a fun slide with it if you have a rubber mat. Sometimes however, especially at sea or in a lake, water can be extremely dangerous. In order to swim in water, a character must make an Athletics check; DC 10 for calm water, 15 for rough and 20 for rushing water. If they succeed, they can swim up to half your speed. If they fail, you sink 5 feet and risk drowning. A character can hold their breathe for 10 turns per Vigor modifier. After that, they are taken down to half their hit points. After another turn, they are taken
down to 0 hit points. After another turn, they die of drowning (or having their circuits buzzed out). Water may be extremely cold (doing 2 frost every turn) or may be radioactive (treated as mild radiation). Vacuums As fun as being amongst the stars can be, a vacuum is very deadly to be in (as if the lack of air, compression and cold didn't make it obvious). While in a vacuum, a character risk running out of air, as they would drowning (the only difference is that they're carcus won't be as wet). Characters also experience strong cold, as hellrime cold. Gravity Gravity can effect characters in a number of ways. Sorry, no funny observation about things like space tag or swimming through rings of tooth paste. Normally, gravity is just like Earth. People jump and fall, characters are kept down by they're own weight and so on. In light gravity, things seem to feel lighter, even the air. In places of low gravity, every target's speed is increased by 5 feet and add 50 pounds to their carrying capacity (25 for small, 100 for large). Characters also gain a +5 bonus on Athletics and Acrobatics checks, while receiving a -2 penalty on attack rolls. Falling damage does 1d4 damage per 10 feet instead of 1d6. In heavy gravity, things seem to feel heavier, even the air. In places of heavy gravity, every target's speed is decreased by 5 feet and subtract 50 pounds from their carrying capacity (25 for small, 100 for large). Characters also gain a -5 penalty on Athletics and Acrobatics checks, while receiving a -2 penalty on attack rolls. Falling damage does 1d8 damage per 10 feet instead of 1d6. In zero gravity, weight doesn't seem to exist. In places of zero gravity, all target's gain a fly speed equal to their land speed (but only in one direction at a time) and add 1000 pounds to their carrying capacity (500 for small, 5000 for large). Characters also receive a -4 penalty on attack rolls. Falling doesn't do damage in zero gravity.
