Chimera
The Chimera is the standard armoured personnel carrier of the Astra Militarum, or Imperial Guard, and is the basis for a number of other armoured vehicles such as the Basilisk artillery and Salamander scout vehicles. The basic Chimera is equipped with a multi-laser, although other heavy weapons can be fitted, in a top mounted low profile turret. The forward hull mounts a heavy bolter or heavy flamethrowers. Along the sides are six lasguns, three each side, that allows carried troops to cover the flanks, with the weapons tied into the Chimera's power source. The rear is dominated by a large door that acts as a ramp, allowing two medium sized creatures to depart or embark at once. There is a top hatch atop the turret and a large hatch on the rear roof behind the turret to allow troops to fire out, or if they are equipped with jump packs. The top hatch can mount an infantry level weapon in a pintle mount, but leaves the gunner exposed. A large dozer blade can be fitted to the front, allowing the Chimera to clear obstacles, or even as a weapon to ram other vehicles or buildings with.
The Chimera is five squares long, four squares wide, weighing 38 tons empty. Provides full cover for crew and passengers. Anyone firing out the rear top hatch, room for 4, have half cover.

New Equipment
Autocannon

A common projectile weapon used by the Imperium of Man, either mounted on tripods or light trailers for heavy support troops to use, or light vehicle weapons.

Autocannon, 20mm (PL 5 Exotic or Vehicle Weapons Proficiency)
Damage: 4d10
Critical: 19-20 x2
Damage Type: Ballistic
Range Increment: 150 feet
Rate of Fire: S, A
Size: Gargantuan
Weight: Ammo: Linked
Purchase DC: 32
Notes: Military (+3)

Heavy Bolter
The heavy bolter is a larger and heavier version of the bolt gun, generally used for anti-infantry or fire support roles. These weapons are used by many factions of the Imperium of Man, from the Imperial Guard as a heavy squad weapon, to the Space Marines as a heavy weapon. The larger projectile with more propellant gives it longer range and higher stopping power, making it capable of destroying light vehicles. A heavy carry handle on the top allows it to be carried easier, and fed from either a disintegrating belt or a 40-round high capacity box magazine.

Heavy Bolter (PL6 Personal Firearms Proficiency, Adeptus Astartes Codex Equipment)
Damage: 3d12+4 + 2d6
Critical: 20
Damage Type: balllistic +fire
Range Increment: 100 ft
Rate of Fire: S, A
Size: Large
Weight: 30 lb
Ammo: 40 box or linked
Purchase DC: 27 Mil (+3)
Notes: Masterworked, +1 attack roll, Digital Ammo Counter, 3 round burst setting, anyone with burst fire feat can use 3 rounds instead of the normal 5, armour piercing (+1 attack against targets with armour, or natural armour +1 or greater. Against targets without armour suffers -1 damage).
Medium sized creatures attempting to use the Bolt Gun suffer a -1 to attack rolls due to the weapon being sized for the larger hands of the Space Marines. Anyone without exceptional strength, or a cybernetic arm, with strength rated at least 18, suffers -3 on any attacks after the first attack in a round, and suffers half the damage rolled in subdual damage on any attack made with the Heavy Bolter. So a normal person, with Strength 18 will suffer half damage in subdual damage each time he fires the weapon, and his second attack suffers -2 to attack roll. While a person with a cybernetic limb of Strength 18, doesn't suffer the subdual damage or the attack penalty to his second attack due to the shock absorbers and gyros in the arm to keep it steady.

Lasgun (PL6 Personal Firearms Proficiency)
Damage: 3d8

Javelin TOW Missiles
Next-generation of guided anti-armour weapon system. Developed late in the 20th century, it become quite common amongst some of the major militaries.It features improvements over other anti-armour weapons including imaging infrared system, fire and forget capacity. It can also be used in a limited anti-aircraft capacity against slow, low-flying aircraft, such as helicopters. The missile's normal attack mode is top-down, in which it attacks the thinly armoured roof of an armoured vehicle, but can be switched to a direct targeting assault mode, good for attacking the sides of armoured vehicles, or attacking fortified or reinforced structures. The weapon also has a "soft launch" signature, producing lower overpressure and backblast than its predecessors, making it more ideal for use in enclosed spaces.

Javelin (PL5 Exotic Weapon Proficiency)
Damage: 11d6, ignore 13 points of hardness
Blast Radius: 15 ft
Critical: 20 x2
Damage Type: fire
Range Increment: 200 ft
Notes: Ignores 13 points of hardness, will not fire at a target within 30 feet. In top-down fire mode takes full round to fire, ignore 1 point of Defense from target's armour and a further 4 points of hardness, but reduce range increment by 50 feet. In direct fire mode, firing is a normal attack action.

Salamander
The Salamander is a scout vehicle using the Chimera chassis, except the rear section is now an open platform which mounts an autocannon, improved communications systems. The forward section still retains the driver and gunner with the hull mounted heavy bolter, while the rear section is crewed by the commander and comms-operator. The autocannon is fitted in a semi turret, able to only cover the forward half of the vehicle. A hatch is fitted above the driver to allow the driver and gunner to enter or leave the vehicle. There is more storage for rations and supplies for the crew as the Salamander is expected to operate for extended periods from supply depots. The engine is also upgraded for improved speed and response time to allow for hasty retreats or to chase down targets.The Chimera is five squares long, four squares wide, weighing 33 tons empty. Provides full cover for driver and gunner, three-quarters cover for commander and comms-operator.

From what I can get from reading the 40K Wiki, it looks like it's a TOW with a drone brain, sensors and "longer range". Stats-wise I guess also something, something Imperium tech is a bit better which is good because it takes longer to load or it's harder to manufacture or whatever.

I've given some thought to the Z-Fighters and their role in Coreline. For one thing the lore of Dragonball
Online can be taken into account, with its new martial arts dojos led by Krillin, Tien, and Goten and Trunks. So people can study at the New Turtle School, New Crane School and Kikoukenjutsu Sword School. I imagine younger versions of the characters would decide to create their own teams of martial artists in various places across the globe to take care of various threats. This would give the human characters a chance to shine that they wouldn't normally have. I think Yamcha in particular would be psyched to have a reason to practice martial arts again.

Then there are the characters from MasakoX's What Ifs. Good! Raditz, Ranch, Good! Nappa, Fighter! Bulma, etc. These are very interesting characters and it would be interesting to see them interact with say more canon alternates of themselves or one another.

A number of Dragon Ball characters could be useful in campaigns. Master Roshi would be pretty stubborn, directing any prospective students to the New Turtle School (or maybe he'd be like "Just read the Dragon Ball manga, or watch the anime and pay attention to how I trained Krillin and Goku."). It'd take considerable effort and likely embarrassment to convince the old hermit to train anybody. If you do succeed however, the secrets of the Turtle School would be quite valuable, and Roshi would drive his students to continue to work hard after they have mastered his teachings.

Bulma would make a good patron for adventurers, as well as a source of gear. She'd pay well for new sources of technology to analyze. Though I don't think she'd resort to corporate espionage. She prefers to out do her rivals (which include Sliph Co. and the Red Ribbon Corporation (a more "legitimate" version of the Red Ribbon Army that amongst other things is known for their cybernetics and robotics, thanks to Dr. Flappe and Dr. Gero) with her own ingenuity and resources. Reverse-engineering technology is one thing, outright theft is another.

Dende, as Guardian of Earth would keep his eye out for those that protect or otherwise help the Earth, and may even decide they are worthy of his help. While he doesn't have the martial arts knowledge of his predecessor, Mr. Popo is excellent at martial arts training and the Lookout has resources like the Room of Spirit and Time. Dende may even try to get Piccolo to train particularly promising individuals.
 
There is something in the Coreline stories called the "World Martial Arts Academy", which is a combo of various schools that have banded to teach heroes. Still doesn't means that there can't be rival schools.

Red Ribbon also sounds cool, but hard to tell if it wouldn't be a division of Capsule (emphasis: cybernetics and bio-tech?) or not.

The Red Ribbon Army apparently were rivals to Capsule Corp before being destroyed by Goku. So the same would probably apply on Coreline.

There are probably a multitude of Martial Arts Schools/Styles on Coreline. The New Turtle School, New Crane School and Kikoukenjutsu Sword School could be part of the World Martial Arts Academy, but there's probably plenty who aren't. Maybe they aren't inclined to heroism, perhaps they have specific focuses that are incompatible with the World Martial Arts Academy's aims, etc. The Hidden Villages would of course jealously keep their secrets, for instance. There are also off-world martial arts, like Teräs Käsi and for that matter Jedi Lightsaber Combat.

Sensei Greg of Moperville may have re-established his Anime-Style Martial Arts after reading Son Gohan's book on Ki. He may figure that since the cat is effectively out of the bag he might as well teach his Anime-Style Martial Arts with the additional knowledge he has learned. He is still very selective about his students, however.

Iron Mech mk1

Stark Industries has studied the market of Coreline, noticing a trend in mechs and power armours. While they could produce power armours similar to the Iron Man suits, Stark Industries decided to test the mech market with a low level mech. This basic mech, comes standard in red, gold and grey highlights, is powered by an arc reactor, has thing legs and arms, lacks a head and comes with basic repulsors in the large hands, and a light rocket launcher over the right shoulder. While the mech doesn't come with a head, it comes with an Iron Man armour inspired helmet and flight suit, which links to the mech's basic sensors and targeting systems, with the pilot's head exposed, although the mech's shoulder pads and the shoulder weapon provides some protection. Thrusters in the boots, combined with the hand repulsors, gives the mech limited flight capability. The front of the torso flips forward to open, which allows for quick start ups, or quick escape in the case of critical damage to the mech.

Integrated Helmet
Instead of having a head as part of the mech, the Iron Mech comes with a helmet modeled after the Iron Man armour which has a universal HUD linkup, allowing it to connect to the mech so the pilot can see with the mech's sensors, access its systems and weapons. The helmet can link to most common armours available. While the pilot is wearing the helmet and not in the Iron Mech, they can still access the sensors up to 500 ft away from the mech, and even in a limited fashion remote control the mech.
The helmet itself has integrated military radio, GPS, night vision goggles.

Remote Control
While the pilot is wearing the Iron Mech's Integrated Helmet, not only can they access the mech's sensors and communication systems up to 500 ft away, the Pilot can move the Iron Mech, Pilot check DC 15 for basic movement, DC 20 to fly the mech. Skills and attack rolls done remotely suffer a -4 penalties to rolls.

Repulsor Cannon
These weapons are based on the repulsor weapons developed by Tony Stark, combining a short ranged plasma weapon for heavy strikes, and a lighter, but long ranged laser for greater reach. While the plasma component is powerful, it is not as accurate.

Notes: Switching between the weapons is a free action that can be done once each round. Laser uses 1 charge, plasma cannon uses 3 charges per shot. Using the plasma cannon the user suffers -1 to attack rolls. The weapon recharges 1 charge every 10 minutes of inactivity.
The Repulsor Cannons, used in pairs, can be used to function as Maneuvering Thrusters, increasing flight maneuverability to average, however this makes the Repulsor Cannons unavailable for combat. Switching between Maneuvering Thrusters and combat use is a free action that can only be done once per round.
PDC: 20
Restriction: Mil (+3)

RPG Launcher
This launcher uses the common RPG-7, but instead of a single shot launcher, it uses an automatic feed system from a magazine for increased rate of fire. The rocket
Deals 6d6 points of damage to all creatures within a 10-foot radius (Reflex save DC 16 for half damage). Because its explosive features a shaped charge designed to penetrate the armor of military vehicles, the RPG-7 ignores up to 10 points of hardness if it strikes a vehicle, building, or object. However, this only applies to the target struck, not to other objects within the burst radius. The RPG-7 has a minimum range of 30 feet. If fired against a target closer than 30 feet away, it does not arm and will not explode.

Real cool suit.

OK... how do you guys think would be a good way to represent "Stunlock" in weapons? Some kind of Save, difficulty equal to weapon's damage inflicted, or end up stuck in place?
 
Stunlock is usually that the enemy remains stuck in place, unable to move or fight back, because the constant attacking is leaving them doing nothing but performing their "pain" animation again and again and again ad nauseum.

Probably "paralized" would fit. Not sure.

I'd have to say paralyzed is the best fit.. triggered by massive damage or specific weapons or specific NPC have it as special disadvantage
 
How would you mould a special weakness for demons that are extra-vulnerable to firearms? Like you go at them with a katana and they are tough, you hit them with a Kamehameha and they're tough, but you whip out a .38 and boom, they're luggage.

The idea in general is based on this fanfic, can't recall the name right now, in which Tatewaki Kuno, ever the wanna-be samurai jackass, summoned a kind of demon with this weakness because he wanted a "proper" challenge and obviously it went to Hell, and because we are talking Japan this weakness is not exactly easy to exploit.

That would be damage reduction / xx type.. So DR 20 / Ballistic, any type of physical damage (slashing, bludgeoning, slashing, crushing) has to do over 20 points of damage to even scratch it, but if the type is ballistic then that goes does full damage. Also would include energy immunity of different types or resistances
 
OK, expanding the idea as I'm working on it:

The "[something] Mazoku" (need a good term, maybe something like "Tetsu" - "Iron", but I guess something more like "Tough Leather/skin"? Well, "Tough Leather" is "Jōbuna kawa", dunno if that could be reduced to "Jobukawa" or "Jobu"... an alternative is "Tekitou", which doesn't has a direct translation to English but can be used in a positive or negative way, and when used negatively it means roughly something like "vague" or even "half-assed") are a variant of demon that has appeared around the world, origin is Japan, were accidentally summoned by some jackass who wanted to use them as sparring practice without knowing how BAD an idea that was, and which have an unusual weakness... guns. You can kill them real easy with guns.

Which sounds very dang weird until you remember that Japan had one of the most strict firearms laws in the world pre-Vanishing (and even post-Vanishing it gets real iffy when it comes to allowing civilians to carry, plus the whole damn lot of Fiction stuff over there that is more devastating so better options are available) and you can guess that these monsters are a problem.

I could probably stat something up.. just need more info besides weakness to ballistics.. actually.. could just give it a high DR.. and special quality Ballistic Vulnerability - takes double damage from ballistic type damage, which ignores its DR.
 
Gonna need to think. Guess it's pretty obvious that these guys are optimized for melee combat. Spikes, claws, can burp out smoke to try to sneak closer? Can climb walls, some maybe can glide. Leaders are obviously smarter than the regular goon-types, probably have some kind of "rallying cry" ability to bolster aggression. The ones who are smart enough to try to use weapons will obviously reach for blades or clubs and skew guns.
