First draft of Spice Melange. Doesn't feel quite done.. but it's a good base. Suggestions?
There was talk on the Discord server about graboid produced spice, and Beetlejuice sandworm spice.. eventually.

Spice Melange
Spice Melange, commonly referred to simply as 'the spice', was a naturally produced awareness spectrum narcotic that formed a fundamental block of commerce and technological development, and found only on the planet Arrakis, also known as Dune. It also played an important role in travel and cultural development as it is vital for space travel by enabling navigators to safely guide space ships through warp space.
Spice, depending on how it's processed, and used, is usually orange in colour, and can be used to make paper, fibres for cloth, or chemical explosives. It can be refined to create spice essence or spice gas, and in most forms smelled and tasted like cinnamon.
Spice used in heavy doses, and particularly in gas form, is used by Space Guild Navigators, allowing them to plot courses across interstellar distances and fold space for near instantaneous travel.

Spice Melange Solid
This form of Spice is typically a small block, or cube, about the size of a sugar cube, and is the most common form of consuming Spice, and can be broken down and mixed into food, but dilutes its effects. When consumed, it can awaken dormant parts of the human mind and encourage expanded sensory perceptions. In some humans, it large doses it can lead to expanded mental powers such as prescience. Spice is quite addictive, and users must make Will save once daily DC 10 +1 per 2 doses taken, or feel withdrawal and need their next dose of Spice. Withdrawal causes shakes and sluggish mind, -1 to Dex related skills and checks and Intelligence based checks.
Sustained use, at least 1 dose daily for at least 6 months, causes some physical effects, causing eyes to become discoloured so the entire eye would be stained blue. Heavy use (10 or more doses daily) can create a huge physical dependency that could radically alter the entire body, seen more with use of Spice gas, which is used by Guild Navigators.
1 dose grants the consumer +4 to Sense Motive, Listen, Spot and Search checks, as well as +2 to Reflex. A single dose lasts for 4 hours. If additional doses are taken daily, the bonus to Sense Motive, Listen, Spot and Search are reduced by 1 for every 2 doses.
Weight: 1 oz
PDC: 19 for 5 doses.
Restriction: Res (+2)
Note: If at least 2 doses are consumed daily for 1 year, the user's life is extended by 6 months, and permanently gains +1 to Fort saves.. Thus long term use can extend one's life by years.
Special: Some people who take a minimum of 5 doses at once can develop mental abilities, such as precognition, telepathy and similar abilities, a 15% chance of this happening, and then only lasts for half the duration of the effects of Spice. Gains 1-3 psionic powers, with power points equal to their Intelligence score. The psionic power level can't be higher than the recepient's Intelligence Modifier, with a minimum level of 0 for no or negative Intelligence modifier.

Battleworld

Thanks to the Cluless virus, many worlds that didn't exist before came into being, one of those is Battleworld. While Battleworld was originally created by the Beyonder from pieces of other worlds as a place where various heroes and villains and innocents alike where brought together to fight for the Beyonder's amusement, it has become even more pieced together with even more pieces of worlds added to its make up. While primarily made of pieces of worlds from the Marvel multiverse, some others have been added and are interacting with each other.
Battleworld today is primarily home to variations of Marvel Fictions, but other groups have laid claim to areas of their own.
Battleworld is still used as a place of combat, many using it as a place to train elite warriors, have gladiator contests or a place to settle disputes by trail by combat. This is due to Battleworld being designed to promote and support combat. The only rules that are enforced, partly due to some unknown force and the established houses, are trail by combats are not to be interrupted by any third parties, the rules of such trails are simple and straight forward, stated before the fight is started. To attack another faction must be declared, although minor border skirmishes seem to slip by this rule as long as combat is amongst small numbers and does not happen often. Raiding another faction is only tolerated if done to facilities along the borders of the factions and are not common occurrences.
Other forms of combat are open, such as gladiatorial fights, border skirmishes between houses, raids on mining and other resources. However open war must be declared, no sneak attacks are allowed. Sneak attacks include using stealth to move units into areas and attack without warning. The use of mines is only allowed for defense of important facilities in a limited numbers, and never used to blockade cities.
Also combat in civilian areas is forbidden and avoided if at all possible. Military, scientific and similar type facilities are to be built away or with a buffer zone between them and any civilian areas. Arenas are exception to this rule, but must be designed to be able to contain any potential powers that could destroy large areas. Brawls that do not lead to serious property damage or risk to civilians are allowed but dealt with by local authorities quickly in civilian areas.
These rules while enforced by the factions of Battleworld, are also enforced by an unknown force, that manifests in bright lights that will stop the rule breakers after they take the action that breaks the rules. This stopping can be merely immobilizing them and allowing the victims attack the attacker, or disintegrating the attackers slowly and painfully, leaving their equipment and gear for the victims to claim as their own.

There are several major players on Battleworld currently, House of Iron, based on ideas from Tony Stark, a technological wonderland with advanced technologies, protection and knowledge, but lead by an AI left after an Alternate of Tony Stark disappeared.
Temple of Vishanti, home to magic users originally lead by a variant of Sorcerer Supreme Dr Strange, is situated on a series of 6 islands in a circle west of the main continent.
The Spider-Guild, also known as Spider-Island, although not really an island, with large urban built up areas with tall buildings and towers to allow easy web swinging, although parts of it is war torn and being rebuilt after disastrous encounters with Symbiotes. Many members of the Spider-Guild are spies and an unknown amount are found in other houses, always watching and looking out for the Guild's interests and potential trouble that can cause countless loss of innocent lives.
Asgardian Republic is home to many displaced Asgardians, and descendants of those originally brought to Battleworld, living as they did before, with their warriors enjoying the chance of fairly constant combat. The whole of the Republic is covered in unmelting ice, which can make the area unhospitable to non-Asgardians if not in one of the cities.
Patriot Garrison, north of the Spider-Guild, is made from the shattered pieces of an alternate Earth where Howard Stark was shot instead of Dr. Erskine. The Patriot Garrison looks and feels very much like the United States in the 1940s and 1950s, although with some advanced technology, but not as advance as the technological advancement was slowed greatly without the influence of Howard Stark, and later his son Tony. The Patriot Garrison is more about manpower than firepower, with an abundance of Super Soldiers thanks to Dr. Erskine living and able to produce more of the super soldier serum.
Gamma Horde, a land of deserts and rocky mountains, and some gamma irradiated areas such as the Green Desert, home to tribes of Hulks, who were once united but now a scattering of tribes that fight amongst themselves but do come together for short periods for various reasons.
Pyramid X is a desert area ruled by an alternate of Apocalypse, a land for mutants with advanced genetic engineering combined with Celestial technology. Styled on Egyptian aesthetics, this strict kingdom can be a haven for mutants, if they follow the rules.
The Kingdom of Wakanda, is based on Wakanda, as a part of it was taken to Battleworld. Just like Wakanda on Earth, they are technologically advanced, based on Vibranium technology.

Besides these factions, each area has resources that helps each faction function, such as vibranium in Wakanda, small amounts of adamantium and vibranium and plenty of other exotic materials such as palladium, in House of Iron, Uru in the Asgardian Republic, etc. While these resources can be found in other parts of the planet, other resources are also popping up, such as dilithium, Tiberium, small amounts of beskar, and other materials from other Fiction universes are found in limited quantities in various locations. An interesting fact of these locations is there is a fixed amount, and once it runs out, it slowly replenishes over time. The leading theory for this is with limited locations it promotes skirmishes or gladiator trial by combat for mining rights to the locations, promotes factions to stay and develop technology based on the material and test it in various gladiator trials and combat.

House of Iron
A Suit of Armour around the World.

House of Iron

Capital: Armoured City
Leader: Chief Executive Officer, Stark Prime, AI
Highest Elevation: 3,333 feet (top of new Stark Tower)

History
When Stark Tower was first forcefully brought to Battleworld by Maestro, it wasn’t as large an upset for Tony Stark as some might assume. Imprisonment and dire stakes are what first made Tony put hammer to metal and forge an Iron Man suit, and from this tragic situation, a new Age of Iron would rise. For a time, while The Battleworld was being forged by war…the House of Iron stood as a shining beacon of hope. Innovation and betterment were the only missions of this safe-haven. Enemies were faced on the battlefield, but many foes were turned to friends when shown the wonders of Stark Tech and the safety of dwelling in the Armored City.
Much time passed, and innovation allowed for surprisingly long life-spans. The aging Tony Stark grew more and more reclusive, often disappearing into Stark Tower or off on “Diplomatic missions” for months, if not years. Following a tragic accident during an Extremis experiment, which nearly levelled an entire territory, Stark Prime (the official AI simulacrum of Tony Stark) announced that automated protocols had been enacted and he would be acting CEO for the foreseeable future. Additionally, all Stark Technology suits’ OS shifted overnight from being J.A.R.V.I.S. assisted to Stark Prime monitored.
There remains a strong belief that all other Houses could be improved with the addition of Stark Technology. However, that technology comes with the price of Stark Prime as an ever-present failsafe. Sadly, not everyone has been open to the idea of a Stark on their shoulder. There is always hope that with time they will see the advantages of a world united under the banner of the House of Iron.

SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT
Technocracy – Since all citizens of the House of Iron are also counted as employees, the country itself is run as a business. Voting participation is a constant 100% as it is done via the company issued Stark-Suits in exchange for OS upgrades. An elected board of directors function to enact the will of the people while committees and consultative bodies assist with planning and communication. All of it assisted and overseen by the Chief Executive Officer.

Current State
Thanks to Cluless virus and many alternates of Stark Industries, House of Iron has seen some sudden influx of innovation or acquiring technology, sometimes by purchasing, stealing or other means to add to its forces and knowledge, especially any Stark Tech it doesn't already have. Although House of Iron is wary of any nanotechnology puts any found under extreme scrutiny before using any.

Territories
The House of Iron takes up a wide stretch along the lower section of the main continent, with the Spider-Guild north of it, the Kingdom of Wakanda to the west, Asgardian Republic to the East. The southern border is unclaimed wild lands at the moment, with occasional raids from roving gangs searching for resources.

Extremis City - The former workshop for Nanotech which has been corrupted by the Extremis project, now a somber monument to a failed experiment.

Stark Expo - A year-round exposition of where the brightest humans of House of Iron pool their resources, share their collective vision and attempt to spark a light for a brighter future.

Armoured City - The most protected area of the House of Iron. Base of operations for top researchers and innovators in the iconic Stark Tower, similar to the one found in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The capital of House of Iron

The Ten Rings - not much information known, a military facility with Chinese design aesthetics

Avengers Compound - A now-abandoned base of operations for the disbanded Avengers team. Structures which have been deemed stable are now primarily utilized for storage.

Palladium Mines - Palladium is important element which help powers Arc Reactor Tech.

Iron Mongery - An industrial Armour Forge. Utilized to keep a steady supply of suits, replacement parts and other innovations to better the lives of all who reside within the House of Iron.

Bleeding Edge Complex - Security Clearance required

JARVIS Mainframe - The server warehouse of Just A Rather Very Intelligent System (JARVIS) which assists in the daily functions, scans and subroutines of all connected tech.

Stark Prime
To whoever is reading this,
None of us asked for this. That seems a little “teenage dream journal”-ish but it’s true. The Battleworld shouldn’t exist and yet here we all are…stuck on a world with infinite possibilities where all we choose to do is fight.
I’ve looked to make the best of it, wrap a suit of armor around my little slice of paradise. We’ve made our people better, stronger, faster, more capable of flight thanks to jet-boots…that kind of thing. I’m no expert on utopias, but all things considered, I am proud of the direction we’re headed. If my daily analytic scans of the populace are accurate (and they always are) then it seems like the mind-blowing tech and super-suits are making life easier.
We’ve had some bumps along the road. Big bumps. “Everything exploded and the forces of evil are at our doorstep” bumps. But we keep moving. We grow and we learn. We push back against those who look to destroy what we have worked tirelessly to create.
I know that many of you are afraid of what’s coming next. I hear every worry you have. I see every tear you shed. I am always with you, in the dark moments and in the light.
If we can control ourselves, if we can keep a level-head, and if we can all join together as one… We MIGHT make it off this little space-rock.. OR maybe we’ll blow it all halfway to hell and I’ll just be a chipper little voice in someone’s helmet saying “I told you so”.
The choices are yours, try to make some good ones.

XOXO —- Stark Prime

Some AIM equipment

AIM Flying Van
The AIM flying van is a fairly common utility vehicle developed by AIM to move small groups of AIM members and equipment quickly. About the size of an armoured truck, angled design to help aerodynamics and deflect projectiles from law enforcements. Two armoured engine pods run along the lower sides that provide thrust, with an afterburner feature, while an antigravity device provides lift. The roof has a retractable weapon turret. A large rear door that lowers to act as a ramp is the primary point of access. The vehicle is powered by a small energy cell that functions similar to zero-point energy, creating nearly limitless clean energy for at least 50 years before draining, able to power various devices. In a pinch the generator can be set to explode as a bomb. The windshield has a HUD that is connected to the communications, sensors and vehicle diagnostics.

AIM Flying Van
Crew: 2
Passengers: 8
Cargo: 3,000 lbs
Init: -2
Maneuver: -2
Top Speed: 200 (20) flying, 350 (35) afterburner
Defense: 8
Hardness: 10
Hit Points: 50, 150 shield
Size: Huge
Purchase DC: 40
Restriction: Illegal (+4), AIM None
Accessories: anti-gravity, NBC protection, afterburner, retractable weapon turret, shield, HUD, sensors (equivalent to mech sensors class III with double range), self destruct, military radio, gps, long range comm system (reach orbit without additional equipment or satellites)
Notes: +5 Fort save vs chemical, radiation, +2 to attack roll with weapon turret.

Afterburner
As part of a move action, the pilot of the Flying Van can use the afterburner to gain a boost of speed, but suffers -2 to all Drive/Pilot checks, attacks with weapon suffers -3 to attack rolls. Afterburner can operate for up to 5 rounds at a time with a minimum of 2 rounds between uses.

Retractable Weapon Turret
The default weapon is a rapid fire energy blaster, although the weapon can be replaced with other weapons as the mission requires. The turret can raise and retract as a move action. The capacity recharges 1 shot every 6 rounds of in activity.
WeaponDamageCriticalDamage TypeRange IncrRate of FireMagazine
Energy BLaster4d820x2Energy (non specific)200 ftS, A200 shot capacity

Shield
The shield has 150 hit points, Energy Resistance of 10 (any type of energy damage except acid). The shield can regenerate 5 hit points every 5 rounds. The shield can run for 20 minutes or until the hit points are depleted, which ever comes first, before requiring a 10 minute cool down. A critical strike bypasses the shield and strikes the user. If the shield's hit points are depleted, the shield can be restored to half its hit points after 5 minutes.

Self Destruct
The power source can be set to overload and explode. The pilot merely enters a simple command sequence and set the timer, 6 seconds to 10 minutes. Disabling the overload requires a Computer check DC 24, or Disable Device 25. Once the countdown is reached, deals 8d6 points of half fire and half slashing damage to a 50 foot radius, Reflex save DC 19 for half.


Nano Cloud Rocket
This warhead comes in several different sizes, and upon detonation, either striking a target or a programmed distance, will release s cloud of nanites. These nanites will affect everything within a radius magnetizing the target to affect it's mobility by making parts stick together, and it also causes interference with sensor systems. The effects are temporary, but enough to disable or at least hinder opponents. Targets must make Reflex Save DC 21 or are immobile and sensors are non functional (Class IV and above only provide half bonus). A flying target will lose the ability to move and fall unless has some means of hovering that doesn't require moving parts such as a jet engine or most hover systems. Metallic weapons attacking the affected target gain a +2 to attack and deal +1 damage per die of damage. On a successful save, the target can move at only half speed, and suffers -2 to Defense, sensors only provide half bonus and range (Class IV and above are not affected). Effects last for 1d6+2 rounds.
Mini-Rocket 1d6 ballistic damage to target struck, affects 10 foot radius, PDC 19.
RPG sized rocket deals 2d4 points of ballistic damage to target struck, affects 20 foot radius, PDC 21.
Vehicle sized rocket (size of javelin missiles, AAMRAM, etc) deal 3d6 points of ballistic damage, affects 30 ft radius, PDC 23



Anti-grav blaster
Energy weapon that blasts target with anti-gravitons that reverses the effect of gravity, causing the target to be launched into the air a distance before wearing off, target will fall to the ground unless can fly.

Anti-Grav Blaster (PL7)
Damage: None*
Critical: -
Damage Type: -
Range Increment: 75 ft
Rate of Fire: Semi
Size: Large
Weight: 18
Ammo: 20 box
Purchase DC: 29
Notes: Target struck is hit with anti-gravitons, raising the target up 60 feet into the air, hold up for 2 rounds, then drops to the ground. If the target strikes something on the way up, or can't go to the full height due to a blocking obstacle, suffers damage equal to the distance the target travelled to the obstruction (if raised 30 ft, takes 3d6 points of damage). The target can make a Reflex save DC 18 to attempt to grab something to keep from floating up farther, however they lose their Dex modifier to Defense, or activate any means of flight they might have. While held in the air, the target is denied their Dex modifier to Defense and considered immobilized unless they have a means of flying which they can activate while being held. Once the 2 rounds are up, the target falls, taking 6d6 points of damage from falling (1d6 points per 10 ft), although the target can make a Reflex save (DC 10 +1 for each 10 feet fallen) for half damage.

Tiberium Razorbacks

With the spread of Tiberium across large parts of Australia, not only has the land been altered, but the local plants and wildlife as well. Some species has been completely wiped out, and others have adapted and been forever changed. One of the species to not only survive, but thrive, in the Tiberium fields are mutated razorbacks, or wild pigs. These boars have been mutated by the Tiberium, making them resilient, aggressive and far removed from their original roots. While each mutation isn't exactly the same amongst the razorbacks, a few noticeable mutation strains have been found in large numbers.

Shardback
The Shardback is only slightly larger than the average razorback, which are already the size of large dogs, but they have rows of Tiberium crystals growing from the top of their head and running along their neck and back like a mane, their skin and fur has an off-green tint, with small but sharp bits of crystal sticking out all over its body. The Shardback uses these crystals as a means of defense as they can angle and shift to help deflect attacks, and offensively, brushing them against targets they slam against, slicing the target, or it can launch shards of crystal with great force. Shardbacks are usually found around large crystal deposits and Blossom Trees, but are also found roaming the borders of Tiberium fields.

Feats: Point blank shot, shot on the run
Possessions:
Advancement: 5-6 (HD Medium)

Combat
Shardbacks are aggressive and will start by launching Tiberium crystal shards at target, and will move and shoot shards and move, keeping out of melee range for as long as possible. If they are surrounded they will use their shard burst to strike as many as possible. Shardbacks are not vulnerable when the enemy gets close, they will gore an enemy with their sharp tusks, and when attacked, the crystals covering their bodies offer some added protection and wound the enemy in return.

Shard: The Shardback can launch a shard of Tiberium crystal at a distant foe. These shards deal 1d4+1 piercing damage, plus targets struck must save against Tiberium poisoning (injury) and exposure, and must make new saves against Tiberium poisoning every minute the shard is left in the target. Removing the shard requires a Treat Injury check DC 18 and 5 minutes of work to remove the shard safely. The Shardback can launch a shard with a range increment of 30 feet, out to 5 increments.

Shard Burst (Ex): The Shardback can release multiple shards of tiberium crystals in a burst around itself as a full round action, filling a 15 foot radius centered on itself, dealing 2d4+1 piercing damage plus targets struck must save against Tiberium poisoning (injury) and exposure, and must make new saves against Tiberium poisoning every minute the shard is left in the target. Removing the shard requires a Treat Injury check DC 18 and 5 minutes of work to remove the shard safely. Targets can make a Reflex save DC 15 for half damage. The fired shards that don't strike anything have a 50% chance of not shattering and can be collected, but are hazardous as they are Tiberium crystals, about 1 inch long, three quarters of an inch across. The Shardback can use this ability 4 times per day (1 + Con modifier).

Shard Defense (Ex): Opponents that make a melee strike against the Shardback, except with a reach weapon, suffer 1 point of damage as the Shardback is covered in sharp, but tiny shards of Tiberium crystals, and save against Tiberium poisoning from injury.

Ferocity (Ex): The Shardback is so fiercely aggressive in combat that it continues fighting even when disabled or dying. See page 141 in d20 Modern book for explanations of disabled and dying.

Scent (Ex): This ability allows the Shardback to detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and track by sense of smell. See Special Qualities in Chapter Eight: Friends and Foes in d20 modern Book for details.

Tiberium Affinity (Ex): The creature has an affinity with Tiberium. Tiberium fields do not hinder their movement, they can see in Tiberium gas clouds as if they were not there. When surrounded by Tiberium, such as in a field or gas, they gain Fast Heal 1, and gain +10 feet to their speed while inside the field or gas, and for 1 round afterwards. The creature is immune to all negative affects of Tiberium.

Razorbrute
The Razorbrute are large boars that have been mutated by Tiberium to give them increased size and strength. They have oversized mouths and tusks, veiny muscles that are pumping with Tiberium mutated blood, and have armour plates that appear to be made of Tiberium, offering good protection. These plates while offering protection, do break, but quickly regrow.

Skills: Listen +5, Spot +6, Search +4, Survival +5
Feats: Augment Critical
Possessions:
Advancement: 5-6 (HD Medium)

Combat
Razorbrutes are incredibly aggressive and charge into combat, letting their crystal plating protect them from damage, and will release a cloud of Tiberium gas to weaken creatures that survive its initial gore, or when surrounded.

Augment Critical: The Razorbrute scores a critical on a role of 19 and 20 with its gore attack, dealing triple damage.

Tiberium Gas (Ex): The Razorbrute can release a cloud of Tiberium gas as a full round action, filling a 20 foot radius burst around itself, cloud lasts for 5 minutes if there is no wind. Any creature in the cloud is immediately exposed to Tiberium gas and is suffering from Tiberium exposure. If the Razorbrute moves out of the cloud, Tiberium gas lingers to it and for 1d4 rounds any creature within melee range of the Razorbrute is exposed to Tiberium gas exposure. The Razorbrute can release this cloud of Tiberium gas 5 (2 + Con modifier) times per day.

Damage Reduction: The plates of Tiberium crystal that cover the Razorbrute provide it with great resistance, with damage reduction 10. Each time the Razorbrute suffers damage from a physical source (slashing, piercing, ballistic, an explosive, bites, etc), the damage reduction is reduced by 1, and Tiberium gas is released that covers a 5 foot area around the Razorbrute for 1 round. The damage reduction regenerates 1 point every 5 rounds the Razorbrute isn't in combat, or 1 for every round it is in a Tiberium crystal field.

Ferocity (Ex): The creature is so fiercely aggressive in combat that it continues fighting even when disabled or dying. See page 141 in d20 Modern book for explanations of disabled and dying.

Scent (Ex): This ability allows the creature to detect approaching enemies, sniff out hidden foes, and track by sense of smell. See Special Qualities in Chapter Eight: Friends and Foes in d20 modern Book for details.

Tiberium Affinity (Ex): The creature has an affinity with Tiberium. Tiberium fields do not hinder their movement, they can see in Tiberium gas clouds as if they were not there. When surrounded by Tiberium, such as in a field or gas, they gain Fast Heal 1, and gain +10 feet to their speed while inside the field or gas, and for 1 round afterwards. The creature is immune to all negative affects of Tiberium.

Thanks to the Cluless virus, many worlds that didn't exist before came into being, one of those is Battleworld. While Battleworld was originally created by the Beyonder from pieces of other worlds as a place where various heroes and villains and innocents alike where brought together to fight for the Beyonder's amusement, it has become even more pieced together with even more pieces of worlds added to its make up.

Arenas are exception to this rule, but must be designed to be able to contain any potential powers that could destroy large areas. Brawls that do not lead to serious property damage or risk to civilians are allowed but dealt with by local authorities quickly in civilian areas.

Pyramid X is a desert area ruled by an alternate of Apocalypse, a land for mutants with advanced genetic engineering combined with Celestial technology. Styled on Egyptian aesthetics, this strict kingdom can be a haven for mutants, if they follow the rules.
The Kingdom of Wakanda, is based on Wakanda, as a part of it was taken to Battleworld. Just like Wakanda on Earth, they are technologically advanced, based on Vibranium technology.

Besides these factions, each area has resources that helps each faction function, such as vibranium in Wakanda, small amounts of adamantium and vibranium and plenty of other exotic materials such as palladium, in House of Iron, Uru in the Asgardian Republic, etc. While these resources can be found in other parts of the planet, other resources are also popping up, such as dilithium, Tiberium, small amounts of beskar, and other materials from other Fiction universes are found in limited quantities in various locations. An interesting fact of these locations is there is a fixed amount, and once it runs out, it slowly replenishes over time. The leading theory for this is with limited locations it promotes skirmishes or gladiator trial by combat for mining rights to the locations, promotes factions to stay and develop technology based on the material and test it in various gladiator trials and combat.

House of Iron
A Suit of Armour around the World.

House of Iron

Capital: Armoured City
Leader: Chief Executive Officer, Stark Prime, AI
Highest Elevation: 3,333 feet (top of new Stark Tower)

History
When Stark Tower was first forcefully brought to Battleworld by Maestro, it wasn’t as large an upset for Tony Stark as some might assume. Imprisonment and dire stakes are what first made Tony put hammer to metal and forge an Iron Man suit, and from this tragic situation, a new Age of Iron would rise. For a time, while The Battleworld was being forged by war…the House of Iron stood as a shining beacon of hope. Innovation and betterment were the only missions of this safe-haven. Enemies were faced on the battlefield, but many foes were turned to friends when shown the wonders of Stark Tech and the safety of dwelling in the Armored City.
Much time passed, and innovation allowed for surprisingly long life-spans. The aging Tony Stark grew more and more reclusive, often disappearing into Stark Tower or off on “Diplomatic missions” for months, if not years. Following a tragic accident during an Extremis experiment, which nearly levelled an entire territory, Stark Prime (the official AI simulacrum of Tony Stark) announced that automated protocols had been enacted and he would be acting CEO for the foreseeable future. Additionally, all Stark Technology suits’ OS shifted overnight from being J.A.R.V.I.S. assisted to Stark Prime monitored.
There remains a strong belief that all other Houses could be improved with the addition of Stark Technology. However, that technology comes with the price of Stark Prime as an ever-present failsafe. Sadly, not everyone has been open to the idea of a Stark on their shoulder. There is always hope that with time they will see the advantages of a world united under the banner of the House of Iron.

SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT
Technocracy – Since all citizens of the House of Iron are also counted as employees, the country itself is run as a business. Voting participation is a constant 100% as it is done via the company issued Stark-Suits in exchange for OS upgrades. An elected board of directors function to enact the will of the people while committees and consultative bodies assist with planning and communication. All of it assisted and overseen by the Chief Executive Officer.

Current State
Thanks to Cluless virus and many alternates of Stark Industries, House of Iron has seen some sudden influx of innovation or acquiring technology, sometimes by purchasing, stealing or other means to add to its forces and knowledge, especially any Stark Tech it doesn't already have. Although House of Iron is wary of any nanotechnology puts any found under extreme scrutiny before using any.

Territories
The House of Iron takes up a wide stretch along the lower section of the main continent, with the Spider-Guild north of it, the Kingdom of Wakanda to the west, Asgardian Republic to the East. The southern border is unclaimed wild lands at the moment, with occasional raids from roving gangs searching for resources.

Extremis City - The former workshop for Nanotech which has been corrupted by the Extremis project, now a somber monument to a failed experiment.

Stark Expo - A year-round exposition of where the brightest humans of House of Iron pool their resources, share their collective vision and attempt to spark a light for a brighter future.

Armoured City - The most protected area of the House of Iron. Base of operations for top researchers and innovators in the iconic Stark Tower, similar to the one found in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The capital of House of Iron

The Ten Rings - not much information known, a military facility with Chinese design aesthetics

Avengers Compound - A now-abandoned base of operations for the disbanded Avengers team. Structures which have been deemed stable are now primarily utilized for storage.

Palladium Mines - Palladium is important element which help powers Arc Reactor Tech.

Iron Mongery - An industrial Armour Forge. Utilized to keep a steady supply of suits, replacement parts and other innovations to better the lives of all who reside within the House of Iron.

Bleeding Edge Complex - Security Clearance required

JARVIS Mainframe - The server warehouse of Just A Rather Very Intelligent System (JARVIS) which assists in the daily functions, scans and subroutines of all connected tech.

Stark Prime
To whoever is reading this,
None of us asked for this. That seems a little “teenage dream journal”-ish but it’s true. The Battleworld shouldn’t exist and yet here we all are…stuck on a world with infinite possibilities where all we choose to do is fight.
I’ve looked to make the best of it, wrap a suit of armor around my little slice of paradise. We’ve made our people better, stronger, faster, more capable of flight thanks to jet-boots…that kind of thing. I’m no expert on utopias, but all things considered, I am proud of the direction we’re headed. If my daily analytic scans of the populace are accurate (and they always are) then it seems like the mind-blowing tech and super-suits are making life easier.
We’ve had some bumps along the road. Big bumps. “Everything exploded and the forces of evil are at our doorstep” bumps. But we keep moving. We grow and we learn. We push back against those who look to destroy what we have worked tirelessly to create.
I know that many of you are afraid of what’s coming next. I hear every worry you have. I see every tear you shed. I am always with you, in the dark moments and in the light.
If we can control ourselves, if we can keep a level-head, and if we can all join together as one… We MIGHT make it off this little space-rock.. OR maybe we’ll blow it all halfway to hell and I’ll just be a chipper little voice in someone’s helmet saying “I told you so”.
The choices are yours, try to make some good ones.

XOXO —- Stark Prime

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
The highest-ranking executive of this corporate territory. Manages operations and resources of the company. Responsible for high-level strategy and company growth. Is the main point of communication between other levels of executives and the overall “face” of the organization. Elected by the board and shareholders (citizens).
Ok this is a very cool idea. We need to check on the 2015 "Secret Wars" event major inspiration for the "Tournament of Champions" and"Realm of Champions" games), and see what we can add.

Also, the question of how would Iso-8 work on this setting .... Well... Guess a lot of people would want to poach it, like in Avengers Alliance.

ISO-8.. probably a combination and expansion of Incarnum (D&D 3.5 Magic of Incarnum using soul energy to create magical items, or augment the user), and Weapon Augment Crystals (D&D 3.5 Magic Item Compendium crystals that enhance the item, including armour, in some form, such as increase hardness, attack, add elemental damage, etc. had similar abilities to magical item abilities but were weaker and allowed flexibility, so could make a weaker ghosttouch weapon become a weaker flaming weapon at a fraction of the both) but these can be swapped out easily, which ISO-8, depending on the game source, is either easy to remove, or difficult.
ISO-8 doesn't have as many specific abilities, tied to items, but more enhances natural abilities of the user (health, dex, strength, stamina, etc) if I remember correctly.. I'll have to go through the different game's definitions again.

Death Glider

The Death Glider is a crescent-shaped vessel with wings stylized to look like that of a bird. The wings curve downward, making their tips the lowest point of the vessel. When stored, the wings fold down to save space. The cockpit has room for two, the pilot in front, and the co-pilot operates the weapons, although the pilot can operate the weapons, but not as accurately. The Death Glider is armed with a pair of staff cannons which are detachable.
The ship is capable of both atmospheric and space flight, using inertial propulsion instead of direct thrust, which allows them to hover, allowing them function as multi-role attack craft easily. Death Gliders lack FTL capabilities, and require a larger ship to carry them. This drive even allows the craft to operate underwater for short periods. The pilot can enter the craft through the retractable canopy, or the cockpit lowering, which is slower but easier.
Death Gliders are found among the many Goa'uld System Lords, Free Jaffa, and other groups, making it easy to find. Those with access to Goa'uld technology use these craft, but many other groups, include Stargate Command have made their own versions using their own technology.

Engines: Thrusters, Ion engine
Armour: Naquadah
Defense Systems: Radiation shielding
Sensors: Class III sensor system, targeting system
Communications: Radio transceiver
Weapons: 2 Staff Cannons
Grappling Systems: None

If only 1 crew member, the pilot can operate the weapons, but suffers -1 to attack rolls.

Select-Fire Staff Cannon
While the Staff Cannons are attached to the ship, they have a rate of fire of single, but the ship can fire either both weapons as a fire-link (8d10 damage) or individually, allowing for more attacks each round if the gunner has multiple attacks, alternating between each weapon.

Improved Maneuverability
The craft is designed to be incredibly maneuverable, allowing it to avoid enemy fire. Grants +4 to Pilot checks for performing stunt maneuvers.

Naquadah Armour
Plates made of Naquadah, a dense and energy absorbing material, this armour is heavier than steel and similar armours, but resilient against physical attacks, and highly resistant to energy attacks, except acid.
Hardness: 25, 50 against energy attacks except acid.
Tactical Speed Penalty: -500 ft (-1 square)
Weight: One-quarter the weight of the starship (rounded up).
PDC: 20 + one-half the base PDC of the starship.
Restriction: Military - Rare (+3 to +4)

Goa’uld Staff Cannon
The Staff cannon is based on the Goa'uld staff weapon, but is larger and mounted on a heavy tripod, deals heavy damage, used against massed infantry or structures. While powerful, it is inaccurate and slow to fire.

Damage: 5d10 (fire)
Critical: 20

Restriction: Military (+3)
Rules: The Goa’uld Staff Cannon requires Personal Firearms Proficiency to handle. The sound of the capacitor charging can give a +2 to Intimidation rolls in appropriate circumstances (GM’s call). When the blast hits, it ‘explodes’ with a 10-foot burst radius, dealing damage to anything on it (Reflex save DC 15 for half except target struck). Attack rolls suffer -1 due to its inaccuracy, against targets that moved faster than 40 ft before the wielder's attack suffer a further -1 to attack rolls.
The Staff Weapon is powered by an internal power pack which must be replaced by opening a small hatch on the opposing side of the staff (a full-round action).
So far, the Staff Weapon is used solely by the Goa’uld and any ‘allies’ of theirs, although it is well-known that the military has several captured Weapons on their armories, just in case.

Variants

Udajeet, aka Winged Glider

This variant was used by Ra on Abydos, reduces crew to 1, removes the canopy, life support systems, and its space capability. The open canopy reduces its maximum speed to operate safely, but the space and weight saved from removing the life support systems allows for the addition of two extra staff cannons, giving it greater destruction capability.

Udajeet (PL 6)
Crew: 1
Passenger: 0
Cargo: 300 lbs
Init: -1
Maneuver: +1
Speed: 800 (80)
Defense: 6

Needle Threader
This variant of the Death Glider has wings that form a U round the hull, allowing it to fit through a Stargate, but lacks the automatic systems to allow it to easily fly through a stargate, and must be flown manually.
Changes:
Reduce wingspan to 21 ft (huge size, -2).

EA Hestrel AE/STV-224 Atmospheric Shuttle
The Hestrel atmospheric shuttle, built by Michell-Hyndine, is one of the Earth Alliance's primary atmospheric shuttles, with a 95 foot long, rounded arrow/delta body with two wings with a wingspan of 138 feet, three engines. The ships are primarily used to shuttle people and goods from orbiting ships to planets below, but are designed for extended space flight, but lack jump capabilities and require the use of a jump gate, able to travel up to 14 days before requiring refueling. Requiring a crew of 2, and able to carry 6 passengers and up to nearly 5000 cube feet, or 10 tons of cargo, as they are primarily a cargo shuttle, but some with expanded passenger facilities exist.
While not armed, they do come with two grappling claws and 4 cutting lasers as the shuttles have been used in scientific and surveying operations. Two are mounted in the nose with the other two mounted near the hatch under the hull.

Weapons:none
Grappling Systems: 2 grappling claws

No Gravity
The ship lacks gravity generators, requiring the crew to be strapped into their seats or float away. The crew can get around the ship by wearing magnetic boots, and hand rails are mounted throughout the ship.

Afterburners
This system is similar to the disposable boasters, only they are not disposable, allowing the pilot to use the afterburn action, granting +500 ft to speed.

Long Range Autopilot
This system is a modified autopilot, allowing the pilot to turn it on and the ship will fly along a flight path, but will avoid danger, like a normal autopilot, but will also avoid detected spatial dangers, such as asteroid fields, dangerous nebulas, etc, and notify the pilot of course corrections. Has Pilot and Navigate skills at +4, and internal alarm and voice warning of course changes or detect dangers it can not avoid, to notify the pilot.

Cutting Lasers
These lasers are designed to cut through almost anything, given time, used for collecting samples from debris, rocks and even cutting through hulls. The lasers have a range of only 50 feet, but deal 4d6 points of fire damage, ignoring 10 points of hardness. Given enough time, can cut through denser materials. Requires a ranged touch attack to use, and should be grappled with target to make accurate cuts.

Beetlejuice Sandworm

In the deserts of the underworld, or the Neitherworld, live large black and white, or grey and deep purple, striped worms that feed on the dead, ghosts and spirits. Inside the large tooth filled mouths is a smaller head with sharp fangs, which it uses to bite its targets, while the outer jaws are used to hold those its biting in an attempt to swallow. The worm travels underground in the sand, but is equally capable of traveling above ground. These creatures are feared by the undead as when they are eaten by a sandworm, the undead, spirit or ghost is forever destroyed.

Feats: Improved Initiative, Power Attack, multiattack

Combat
Sandworms roam the vast deserts of the underworld in search of undead. They lead combat with a bite from their inner mouths, using their outer jaws to maintain holds and shred that which enters their mouths. They burst out of the sand and will bite and smash with their powerful tails. They typically use power attack feat with their tail slaps against allies of any target they are currently biting, changing the attack to +7 melee dealing 2d6+13 damage. They prefer attacking undead as it is their primary source of food, but will attack anything moving.

Immunities
Immune to poison, sleep, paralysis, stunning, disease, necromantic effects, mind-affecting affects, and bleeding effects (damage by blood loss such as the bleeding ability). Not subject to energy drain, or effects of massive damage.
Unlike other undead, Sandworms are subject to critical hits, ability damage and ability drain, and effects that require a Fort save that aren't included in the immunities listed above.

Ghostly Touch (Su)
The sandworm is able to touch and damage incorporeal creatures as if they were solid.

Outer Jaws (Ex)
After making a successful bite attack, the sandworm can make an immediate attack with it's outer jaws making a touch melee attack with +9 attack bonus, dealing 2d8+9 damage. If the sandworm makes a successful grapple, it also deals outer jaw damage in addition to normal bite damage each round.
After swallowing a target, the sandworm can retract it's inner head, which removes its bite attack, but grants a +6 to grapple checks to prevent a target from escaping from its gullet.

Improved Grab (Ex)
To use this ability, the sandworm must hit an opponent at least one size category smaller than itself with its bite attack. If it gets hold, it automatically deals bite damage each round the hold is maintained, and it can swallow in the next round.

Swallow Whole (Ex)
If the Sandworm begins its turn with an opponent two or more size category smaller than itself in its mouth, it can attempt a new grapple check as though trying to pin the opponent. If it succeeds, it swallows its opponent, automatically dealing bite damage. Once inside the sandworm, the opponent takes bludgeoning damage equal to the sandworm's tail slap attack plus 1d6 points of acid damage per round from its gullet. A successful grapple check allows the swallowed creature to climb out of the gullet and return to the sandworm's maw, where another successful grapple check is needed to get free. Alternatively, the swallowed creature can attack the inside using claws or a small or tiny slashing weapon. Dealing at least 20 points of damage to the gullet (Defense 25) in this way creates an opening large enough to permit escape. Once a single creature escapes, muscular action closes the hole, thus another swallowed creature must cut its way out. A huge sandworm can hold 2 medium sized, 8 small, 32 tiny or 128 diminutive or smaller opponents.

Unlife (Su)
As the sandworm is undead, it doesn't heal normally. Spells such as Inflict Wounds and other spells that deal necromantic damage heal the sandworm, while Cure Wounds deals damage. Once every 1d4+2 rounds, the sandworm can heal 2d4 hit points, and if it also eats at least 50 lbs of a recently killed creature can heal 1d4 hit points. If the sandworm eats an undead creature, it heals 3d6+3 hit points and gains +10 ft to speed and +5 to damage.

A couple variant types of Spice Melange.

Graboid Melange
This form of Spice is derived from genetically modified Graboids spliced with Dune Sandworms to produce Spice Melange, typically found as a small block, or cube, about the size of a sugar cube, and can be broken down and mixed into food, but dilutes its effects. It has a darker brown colour with an Earthy smell rather than cinnamon smell like Spice Melange. When consumed, it can awaken dormant parts of the human mind and encourage expanded sensory perceptions, like Spice Melange, but weaker, but lacks the ability to awaken latent mental abilities, but does expand physical senses, granting a limited version of tremorsense. Graboid Melange is quite addictive, and users must make Will save once daily DC 10 +1 per 2 doses taken, or feel withdrawal and need their next dose of Spice. Withdrawal causes shakes and sluggish mind, -2 to Dex related skills and checks and Intelligence based checks. Graboid Melange lacks the life extending properties, and can't be used to create Navigators.
1 dose grants the consumer +2 to Sense Motive, Listen, Spot and Search checks, and while standing still, can concentrate as a full round action gaining Tremorsense 30 ft, with a Concentration check DC 15, and increase range by +5 ft for every 5 points the DC is beaten. A single dose lasts for 4 hours. If additional doses are taken daily, the bonus to Sense Motive, Listen, Spot and Search are reduced by 1 for every 2 doses.
Weight: 1 oz
PDC: 18 for 5 doses.
Restriction: Res (+2)

Ghost Melange
This form of Spice is derived from sandworms of the Beetlejuice Verse to create a grey version that smells of mildew. When consumed, Ghost Melange creates a link with the Negative and Astral planes, allowing the user to see, hear and talk with invisible ghosts, spirits and undead within a 60 foot radius. If the user takes at least 5 doses, the user is able interact with incorporeal beings, including with worn gear and small melee weapons. Ghost Melange is quite addictive, and users must make Will save once daily DC 10 +1 per 2 doses taken, or feel withdrawal and need their next dose of Spice. Withdrawal causes shakes and affects the user's health, suffering -2 to Con.
1 dose grants the consumer the ability to touch and see invisible creatures within 60 foot radius, and speak with the dead, ghosts and other spirits. A single dose lasts for 4 hours, and afterwards the user suffers -1 to Fort saves and any Con related checks for 4 hours. If at least 5 doses are used at once, the user is able to physically interact with incorporeal creatures, including with small melee weapons for 2 hours, but afterwards suffers -2 to Fort saves, Con related skills and takes 5 points of damage.
Weight: 1 oz
PDC: 21 for 5 doses.

Some Wakanda tech for when you have games near or involving Wakanda, or can smuggle some out of the country, or they come to collect.
Some inspired from MCU, others from games.

Sonic Spear
A spear made of vibranium with a powerful sonic weapon built into the spear point. As it is made from vibranium, the weapon isn't detectable by normal metal detectors, and the spear point can pierce most known materials, making it a formidable weapon.

Sonic Spear (PL6 Exotic Weapon Proficiency)
Damage: 1d10 / 3d6
Critical: 19-20x2 / 20
Damage Type: Piercing / Sonic
Range Increment: Melee / 80 ft
Rate of Fire: - / S

Weight: 10.2 lbs
Ammo: 30 internal
Purchase DC: 24 Mil (+3) Wakanda +1
Accessories: Integrated sonic weapon
Notes: Melee strikes ignore 8 points of hardness/DR and 5 points of Defense from equipment. Target struck by sonic blast must make Fort save DC 15 or be knocked back 5 feet. Undetectable by normal metal detectors. Internal power source recharges 1 shot ever 2 rounds, or 2 shots on a critical strike with the spear.


Vibranium Power Fist
An armoured gauntlet powered by vibranium power core. It releases a sonic burst upon striking a target for enhanced damage, and has a mode that can release a large burst of sonic energy through the ground to tear it up, knocking those nearby to the ground. The Power Fist also emits an energy field that can absorb kinetic energy and reflect part of it back at the source within a short distance.

Vibranium Power Fist (PL6, Simple Weapons Proficiency, Unarmed)
Damage: 1d4 + 1d6
Critical: 20x2
Damage Type: Bludgeoning + sonic
Size: small
Weight: 4 lbs
Purchase DC: 29 Rare (+5), Wakanda Military (+3)
Notes: Shockwave, Feedback Field
Shockwave - As a full round action, the wielder can charge the emitters and strike the ground, releasing a burst of powerful sonic energy, tearing up the ground. All within 20 foot radius must make a Reflex save DC 16 or be knocked prone and the ground is torn up and considered rough terrain.
Feedback Field - The Power Fist emits a field, up to 1 hour at a time with a 30 minute cool down up to 5 times per day, that grants DR 5 against kinetic attacks (slashing, piercing, bludgeoning, unarmed strikes, ballistic, explosives). If the source of the damage is within 15 feet, the source suffers half damage the wielder suffered.


Wakandan Mace
The Wakandan Mace is a vibranium stick with a weight at one end, based on ancient weapons. The weight and handle are designed in a particular way that allows it to absorb loud sounds nearby which it can release when it strikes a target. It comes with a special sound absorbent case that blocks the mace from absorbing sound when it's not in use.

Wakandan Mace (PL5, Simple Weapon Proficiency)
Damage: 1d8+1
Critical: 20x3
Damage Type: bludgeoning
Size: Medium
Weight: 3 lbs
Purchase DC: 28, Rare, Wakanda Military +3
Notes: Masterwork +1 to attack and damage, Making Waves
Making Waves - When a sonic attack is used within 30 ft of the wielder, the Wakandan Mace gains 1 point of damage for each 5 points of damage the attack would deal. Loud sounds also add to this, each gun shot (must be projectile), missile or rocket fired within 30 ft also grants 1 point of damage. Loud continuous noises such as large trucks, jet thrusters on armour or vehicles, jet engines grant 2 points of damage for the round before an attack is made. The bonus damage can be held for up to 3 rounds before it must be released with an attack with the mace. If no attack is made, the club releases a burst of bludgeoning damage in a 5 ft radius dealing all the damage stored, must make 2 Reflex saves DC 15 first for half damage, then to avoid being knocked prone.


Subsonic Sound Gun
This rifle releases focused sonic waves from a large cone-like emitter. This weapon is an older weapon developed by Wakanda and is one of the few items they export for sales and trade with other countries and forces. It has a few different fire modes, the standard short burst of energy, a wide area cone for multiple targets, and a heavy, but short ranged blast that is capable of shattering armour as it causes a harmonic resonance.

Subsonic Sound Gun (PL 6, Personal Firearms Proficiency)

Damage Type: sonic
Range Increment: 75 ft
Rate of Fire: S
Size: Large
Weight: 10.7 lbs
Ammo: 50 box
Purchase DC: 24 Res to Mil +2 to +3
Notes: multiple fire modes, switch between standard, cone and heavy attack as a free action but only once per round, all targets hit by any mode suffer off-balance.
Cone - Deals 2d6 to a 50 foot long, 25 foot wide cone, Reflex save DC 15 for half damage, uses 2 rounds.
Heavy - Deals 5d6, critical 20x3, range 30 ft, ignores 5 points of hardness, on a critical hit premenantly reduces hardness of item by 1. If a critical hit destroys the item, it explodes dealing half damage of the attack to a 10 foot radius, Reflex DC 13 for half damage, uses 5 rounds.

Off-Balance
The character is off-balanced, reducing reaction times and balance. The character is suffers -2 to Initiative, Reflex, Balance and Climb checks. The character also can not make attacks of opportunity. This is usually caused by things like failing Balance checks by more than 5 points, or being tripped or from falls.

Orion Interceptors
Orion Interceptors were fast, moderately-armed starship used by the Orion Syndicate during the 22nd century, used as quick raiders and defense of Syndicate operations. The interceptor had a long, narrow hull, with rear mounted swept wings and beak-like forward section, that gave it a hawk-like appearance. The ships are armed with a single disruptor blaster mounted under the nose, have shields for defense. They are equipped with transporters, which were used to abduct people from other ships, teleporting them into cells to later be sold as slaves.

Disruptor Blaster Type 1
Disruptor blasters are early disruptor based weapons, typically thoron-based giving them a typically green coloured energy bolt, with high damage potential, but lack the multiple settings, and are capable of only 2 power levels. They are shorter ranged than phasers, and not as accurate, but deal greater damage. Can switch between 4d12 lower power or 9d12 full power shots.

Agile Ships
All Star Trek ships are more agile for their size, gaining a +1 Dodge bonus to Defense as long as the ship moves.

Shield Dependent
Star Trek ships have powerful shields, having the equivalent of Deflector Shields (d20 Future pg 42) and provide bonus HP against all attacks equal to 20 HP / starship HD + 25% HD, for example, a ship with 5 HD (100 HP) will have shields with 125 HP. However as they have developed incredible powerful shields, they are a bit lacking in the armour department, suffering -2 hit dice per category and subtype. There are a few exceptions to this rule, being Klingon, Dominion and Hirogen ships which have standard hit dice for their subtype and category, with a few notable other ships, such as the Defiant class.

TWIN ENGINE SYSTEM (PL 6)
During the Fusion Age starship engineers expand upon experimental starcraft and prototype twin engine technology, designing a command and control system capable of taking two identical engine types and slaving them together, boosting the overall tactical speed of a starship.
A starship equipped with a twin-engine system must mount two identical starship engines – at the loss of 25% of the ship’s cargo capacity and one weapon slot – in order for the system to operate.
This device increases the tactical speed bonus of one of the engines by 50% (round down up the nearest 500 ft.) – the pair provides a tactical speed bonus of 150% of a single engine design. If the system or one of the engines in damaged in combat (most likely due to a critical hit), the remaining engine provides a tactical speed bonus equal to one-half (round up) the bonus a single engine design would normally provide.
Example: A starship equipped with this device and two induction engines would have a total tactical speed bonus of +1,500 ft. If one of the engines is damaged or destroyed the bonus drops to +500 ft. A starship equipped with this device and two gravitic redirectors would have a total tactical speed bonus of +2,500 ft. If one of the engines is damaged or destroyed the bonus drops to +1,000 ft.
Minimum Ship Size: Gargantuan.
Tactical Speed Bonus: See text.
Purchase DC: 15.

Improved Thrust
Computer system and machinery changes to the engine core grant the starship more power, enabling it to propel the starship at an increased rate of speed. The starship gains a +500 ft. bonus to speed.
NOTE: A starship may be equipped with multiple improved thrust gadgets, with each increase past the first granting an additional +250 ft. bonus to speed. (Tactical speed, in squares, is rounded down to the nearest 500 ft. increment.)
Restrictions: Starship engines only.
Purchase DC: +2.

Variants
Grazer
This variant of the Orion Interceptor replaces the disruptor blaster with a pair of fire-linked ion cannons, used for disabling transports, shuttles and fighters.
Make the following changes to Orion Interceptor to Grazer:
Remove disruptor blaster type 1;
Add 2 fire-linked ion cannons (9d6 ion damage);
PDC: +1

Ion Cannon
Ion cannons are a type of energy weapon used to disable a target for capture. The weapon doesn't deal normal damage, but instead deals ion damage, which is not subtracted from the targets hit points, but instead added to any previous ion damage. When the ion damage equals or exceeds the target's normal hit points, that target completely shuts down, cannot move or act until the ion damage fully dissipates. Ion damage ignores hardness and causes no physical damage; it dissipates at a rate of 5 points per round. Deals no damage to organic creatures. An engineer can help speed up ion dissipation with a Repair check DC 15, removing 1d10+5 per round of work. Counts as electricity for terms of Electricity Resistance

Ion Cannon (PL6)

Make the following changes to Orion Interceptor to make a Striker:
Remove Warp Drive;
Add 2 fire-linked concussion missile launchers (10 missiles each);
PDC: +0

Concussion Missiles
Concussion missiles are a type of short range anti-vehicle missile generally deployed by a starship, vehicle mounted or even shoulder launchers. Their small size and maneuverability make them excellent anti-fighter weapons and giving fighters a heavy, if limited payload, punch besides their energy weapons.

Concussion Missile (PL6)
Damage: 10d10
Critical: 19-20x2

Orion Brigand Cruiser
The Brigand class cruiser are fielded by the Orion Syndicate in the late 2300s and early 2400s, and is one of the heaviest ships in their fleet. A curved arrowhead like forward sections followed with a slightly narrower middle section with a larger rear section. The warp nacelles are mounted in pods just below the centerline of the ship about midway along the ship. Armed with two disruptor cannons capable of forward fire only, four disruptor arrays with two mounted on the dorsal side with two underneath to provide best coverage, with two photon torpedoes divided with one forward and rear. The torpedo launchers, while normally only capable of firing single torpedoes, the forward launcher is capable of firing several torpedoes in a short burst of several torpedoes, occasionally, at a single target.
The Brigand cruiser is also designed to quickly divert extra power to its engines, giving it a boost in speed for quick getaways, or for intercepting targets, but this also reduces weapons power and available for short periods of time. The shuttle bay typically carries 4 shuttles or similar sized craft, and 3 interceptors. A stealth screen helps the Brigand get close and also help it get away if necessary.

Torpedo High Yield
The weapons officer can fire multiple torpedoes at once as a full round action against a single target, doubling the number of torpedoes several times up to a maximum of 8 torpedoes. Suffers -1 per doubling of torpedoes, increasing damage by 75% (rounding down) of one torpedo. Example 2 torpedoes suffers -2 to attack, dealing 21d20 damage.

Emergency Power to Engines
As a move equivalent action, the engineer can transfer power from emergency systems and a little from weapons to the engines. The ship gains +1500 ft to speed, but energy weapons deal 2 less die of damage and can only fire once per round. This lasts for 5 rounds, after which the weapons still suffer -2 die of damage for 2 more rounds. Can not use again for 5 rounds as emergency batteries recharge. Outside of combat, can boost Warp Speed to Warp 9 for 30 minutes, but then has to drop to Warp 6 for an hour before can attempt to go any faster.

Duranium (PL6)
Duranium is an extremely strong metallic substance used in alloys for hull construction of starships and space stations. It became well used in the Federation in the 2200s although some ships were still using Ditanium to save on costs and for ships that wouldn't see combat or small craft.
Hardness: 25
Tactical Speed Penalty -500 ft (-1 squar)
Weight: One-tenth the weight of the starship (rounded down)
Base Purchase Modifier: 15 + one-half base purchase DC of the starship. Found only within Federation and other major Star Trek societies.

Photon Torpedo
Photon torpedoes are anti-matter weapons with variable yields. These weapons usually draw their anti-matter from the equipped ship's own anti-matter supplies. These torpedoes require special containment and feeding systems to load and unload the anti-matter after a fight.
At its lowest setting, the torpedo can do 3d20 to a single target, or deal this damage to a 2000 ft square, and can increase damage by 1 die up to a maximum of 12d20, but reduce the maximum radius by 100 ft per die increase, Reflex save DC 19 for half damage when set for an area.. The damage can be to the maximum radius, or to a single target. These weapons are very dangerous in an atmosphere and are usually banned from planetary use except in special circumstances. If used in a planetary atmosphere, deals damage to an area +50% greater, and if set for a single target, deals half damage to a 100 ft area, and Reflex saves in an atmosphere is increased to 21 for half damage. If the ship loses all power while in battle, there is a 50% chance that a loaded torpedo loses containment and it detonates, dealing damage to the equipped ship, ignore its armour hardness.

Example: A starship equipped with this device and two induction engines would have a total tactical speed bonus of +1,500 ft. If one of the engines is damaged or destroyed the bonus drops to +500 ft. A starship equipped with this device and two gravitic redirectors would have a total tactical speed bonus of +2,500 ft. If one of the engines is damaged or destroyed the bonus drops to +1,000 ft.
Minimum Ship Size: Gargantuan.

Variants

Pillager

The Pillager is a variant of the Brigand cruiser, reducing cargo to nearly nothing, and the shuttle bay down to a single shuttle, and increasing the number of photon torpedo launchers, turning it into a torpedo cruiser. The Orion Syndicate uses these during mercenary work where survivors and salvage aren't necessary, as well as protecting their home world and major colonies and other facilities. Pillagers are able to unleash massive amounts of torpedoes at once that a single one is a significant threat to whole squadrons of starships, watching one fire full spread from all 9 forward launchers is like watching a sun going nova. The additional 8 launchers are divided 4 a side along the centerline of the forward section, giving it an incredible destructive capability.
Make the following changes to a Brigand to create a Pillager:
Reduce cargo to 3,000 tons;
Reduce shuttle capacity to 1 shuttle, no interceptors can be carried;
Increase photon torpedo launcher count to 10, each with 100 torpedoes at the ready, another 75 each in storage;
Each of the 9 forward launchers are capable of Torpedo High Yield attack, and can be fire linked in groups of 2, 4, and 8;
Full Spread attack option;
PDC +3.
Primary attacks would be Photon torpedo -3 ranged 12d20 (18d20 firelinked, or 24d20 4 firelinked), and Photon Torpedo --8 ranged 12d20 (18d20 firelinked, or 24d20 4 firelinked).

Full Spread
As part of a full round attack, the weapons officer can target up to 9 targets, suffering -1 to attack roll per target above 2, and each can be the target of a Torpedo High Yield attack, with it's attack penalties stacking. Each target can not be more than 5000 ft from another target, and all must be in the forward half of the ship's facing arc. Up to 2 launchers can target the same target, counting as a fire-link, increasing damage by 50%.


Highwayman
This variant of the Brigand fitted with technology from the Star Wars Universe. While it still mounts the base weapons of the Brigand, it also carries a number of laser turrets for a point defense system, several ion cannons are fitted to assist in disabling craft without causing damage, as well as pair of concussion missile launchers for anti-fighter defense. The Highwayman is fitted with a mid grade hyperdrive to allow it to escape from areas where warp drives don't function, but hyperdrives still work.
The Orion Syndicate only has a few of these ships, but a few are appearing in mercenary groups that have access to all the necessary technologies.
Make the following changes to a Brigand to create a Highwayman:
Reduce cargo by 50%;
Add point defense system, 3d12x10 fire damage, +3 attack, 20% chance to destroy missiles and torpedoes;
Add 4 fire-linked (in set of 2) concussion missile launchers (50 missiles each);
Add 2 light capital ion cannon turrets;
Add Hyperdrive x5;
PDC: +4


Concussion Missiles
Concussion missiles are a type of short range anti-vehicle missile generally deployed by a starship, vehicle mounted or even shoulder launchers. Their small size and maneuverability make them excellent anti-fighter weapons and giving fighters a heavy, if limited payload, punch besides their energy weapons.

Concussion Missile (PL6)
Damage: 10d10
Critical: 19-20x2
Damage Type: Energy
Range Increment: 4000 ft
Rate of Fire: Single
Minimum Ship Size: Large
Purchase DC: 23
Restriction: Mil (+3)
Notes: +2 to target ships of shuttle types or smaller.

Light Capital Ion Cannon
Light capital ion cannons are a type of energy weapon used to disable a target for capture mounted on capital ships. The weapon doesn't deal normal damage, but instead deals ion damage, which is not subtracted from the targets hit points, but instead added to any previous ion damage. When the ion damage equals or exceeds the target's normal hit points, that target completely shuts down, cannot move or act until the ion damage fully dissipates. Ion damage ignores hardness and causes no physical damage; it dissipates at a rate of 5 points per 2 rounds. Deals no damage to organic creatures. An engineer can help speed up ion dissipation with a Repair check DC 15, removing 1d10+5 per round of work. Counts as electricity for terms of Electricity Resistance

Light Capital Ion Cannon (PL6)
Damage: 12d6, deals 25% more damage to shields
Critical: 20x2
Damage Type: Energy (Electricity)
Range Increment: 4000 ft
Rate of Fire: Single
Minimum Ship Size: Colossal
Purchase DC: 39
Restriction: Military (+3)

expanding a little on Lord Zack's idea a while back...

Five for Beytan V

Beytan V is a Federation mining world, not far from the Solar System. Unfortunately with the state of interstellar affairs on Coreline many worlds, security is at a premium. Beytan V was considered vulnerable at the best of times and now with recent conflicts Starfleet is spread thin. Beytan V has been threatened by Orion pirates, which are secretly backed by the Zann Consortium who are seeking to increase their influence in the Vulcan by taking control of the worlds's mineral resources. So the foreman, Brian Vanderberg, has sought out independent security to help protect the colony. Unfortunately the pirates, with weapons imported from the GFFA prove to be difficult to fend off.

Depending on what the players have available, or what resources they can call upon, the Orions may send 1 to 1d4+1 Orion Interceptors with a single Orion Corvette.
They must disable, or destroy the corvette before it can reach orbit (takes about 15 rounds of combat unless it is rushing to 10), where it will beam down troops, then the PCs must either keep fighting what forces are still in space, or head to the planet to engage ground forces.
If the players have a light capital ship and fighters (or equivalent craft), can have number of interceptors increase, or replaced with more corvettes and a Brigand replace the corvette. Must disable the Brigand before it reaches orbit in 20 rounds before it begins beaming troops to the ground.

If the players have access to multiple capital ships, either they own themselves, or NPC assistance, can have 1d4 brigands (of various types) with 1d4+2 or 2d4+1 corvettes and and 2d6 interceptors, GM disgression.

If the capital ship reaches orbit and beams down troops, 2d6 to 3d20+10, depending on ship and how many, can beam troops to the ground which will begin to attack any defensive positions and move to secure the mines and prepare shipments for beaming up.

If the PCs can set up a beaming scattering field, or other means of preventing teleportation to the planet, the Orions will send the corvette (if that is the capital ship) into the atmosphere to land, or launch shuttles each carrying up to 12 soldiers plus 2 crew members, which will need to be destroyed before landing, or engage the ground forces.

Ground forces will typically be armed with light disruptors or Imperial (Star Wars) blasters, and shuttles may include older Imperial shuttles such as Lambda class.

As a reward, the PCs may collect salvage from the Orion ships, could be paid with 1 ton per 2 level (average of group) of dilithium crystals (refined or raw).

MSJ-04 Fanton

The MSJ-04 Fantom was the main mobile suit used by the Human Reform League, a heavily armoured, tall mobile suit that was powered by a fossil fuel generator. It is technically headless, with a protruding part out of the upper chest that houses the cockpit, with a 155mm smooth bore cannon underneath as a main weapon. It has a shield mounted on one arm and a heavy melee weapon in the other. The heavy armour made it quite resistant to attacks, but it was slow, weighing at 135 tons. Large ducts and a protruding exhaust pipe on the back are noticeable characteristics that it is powered by fossil fuels, such as gasoline or diesel with modifications. The fuel generator makes it easy to power, but does limit its range as fuel must be available.

Orca Carryall
The Orca Carryall is a heavy transport version that can move almost any vehicle about the battlefield, including the Mammoth tanks and walkers. It has four large and powerful articulated jets that provide lift and flight, with a large claw on a cable on the underside to lift the vehicle up to the carryall, and a series of adjustable clamps line the underside to secure the vehicle for transport.
The Orca Carryall is 120 feet (24 squares) long, 50 feet (10 squares wide), the crew has nine-tenth cover (9/10th) protected by an armoured canopy. Takes a full round action to enter and another two full rounds to start the craft. Able to hover and land while carrying vehicles under 20 ft tall.

Crew: 3
Passenger: 0
Cargo: 1 vehicle (up to Mammoth Mk2 or slightly larger craft)
Init: -2
Maneuver: -1
Speed: 300 (30)
Defense: 4
Hardness: 5
Hit Points: 100
Size: Colossal
PDC: 42
Restriction: Mil (+3)
Accessories: Military Radio, Searchlight, GPS, thermo/nightvision, laser designator, clamps, claw.
Note: If pilot has at least 6 ranks in Pilot and Aircraft Operation (Helicopters), as long as the craft moves gains +1 Dodge bonus to Defense. Has VTOL capabilities, able to hover. Penalties to Pilot checks in bad weather are reduced by half. Able to operate with as few of 2 engines, as long as they are not on the same side, suffering -1 to Pilot checks and speed reduced by 50 (5).

Clamps
The clamps secure the attached vehicle once it is against its underside. It takes 2 full rounds to adjust and lock the clamps on the vehicle. It takes a move equivalent action to release the carried vehicle.

Claw
The claw is both mechanical and has magnetic ends to help clamp onto a vehicle, has 100 ft reach to allow the craft to hover and pickup a vehicle, requiring a touch attack to latch onto the vehicle. Takes 1 round to raise a vehicle up 25 ft. Cable has hardness 10 and 40 hit points, Defense 16, but is still difficult to strike as it can be hard to see in the right conditions.


Korhal Orca Carryall
This version of the Carryall is built within the Terran Dominion or using their technology, with light neosteel armour, the claw and cable is replaced with heavy and multiple extraction field generators to allow it to lift the vehicles.

The clamps secure the attached vehicle once it is against its underside. It takes 2 full rounds to adjust and lock the clamps on the vehicle. It takes a move equivalent action to release the carried vehicle.

Extraction Field
Extraction fields are devices that uses technology similar to gravity accelerators, that allow equipped ships to lift objects to the ship while it is still airborne. However this requires the ship to remain motionless, as well as those caught in the beam. This limits its use for quick dustoffs. The beam has a range of 90 feet, can lift an object of gargantuan size at a rate of 30 feet as a move action, or 60 ft as a standard action. Larger objects and vehicles take longer, moving 30 ft as a full round action.

Mutant Growth Hormone

Mutant Growth Hormone, or MGH, is a drug made from hormones and tissues made from mutants, or other beings that have had significant changes to their genetic make up. Upon taking this drug, either a tablet or an injection, the recipient gains powers based on the source of that drug, such as Banshee MGH grants the ability to release a damaging sonic scream. Other sources can grant other powers such as enhanced healing, flight, etc.
If a mutant or other super powered being that had their genetic make altered that takes MGH will have their own powers greatly enhanced, regardless of the source of the MGH and it's powers.
MGH lasts for 5 hours, afterwards the recipient suffers -2 Con penalty, reduce speed by half, -2 to attack rolls and all skills, and are exhausted until they rest for 8 hours.
If a Mutant, or other being with modified genetic makeup, takes the drug, any mutant powers they have are enhanced. Abilities with variable results (for example attacks that deal damage such as 1d6) are doubled (a claw attack that normally deals 1d6 now deals 2d6); fixed value abilities, such as speed, Ability score modifiers, other bonuses, are tripled (a mutant ability that grants flight of 20 ft is increased to 60, or grants a Fort save bonus of +2 is now +6). Once the drug's duration expires, the mutant suffers -4 Con, -2 Dex and -2 Str penalties, speed reduced to half, suffer -4 to all attacks and skills and exhausted until they rest for 8 hours.
It is possible to take a second dose before resting, however the duration of the second dose is only 4 hours and the penalties are doubled. Taking a third dose only provides the effects for 30 minutes and the penalties are tripled, and requires 16 hours of rest to recover.
MGH is quite addictive, after each use, the recipient must make a Will save DC 15 +1 per each use after the first use, or become addicted. Once addicted, the user must have at least one dose a day or suffer the effects of the penalties after a single dose. An addicted user can attempt to kick the addiction, but requires a Fort save DC 20 made once a day for 5 days. 5 successful saves in a row and the person has kicked the addition, but if they use MGH again, the Will save to prevent addiction is the same as when they last used MGH +5.
Weight: 1 dose is 12 oz.
PDC: 30
Res: Illegal +5

Examples of MGH
Dazzler

Sound created by gun fire, melee combat of at least 5 people, aircraft engines within 30 feet grant +2 sound points per round. Sonic attacks within 30 feet grant +1 sound pool points per die of damage. Recipient can't have more than triple their Con in sound pool points stored, and any excess dissipates at a rate of 2 points per round.
The recipient can use the points to create several effects:
Create Light - for 1 point per round can create a light source that fills a 20 ft radius like a standard lantern, as a move equivalent action, lasts for 1 +Con modifier rounds, minimum 1 round.
Blinding Flash - for 2 points the recipient and create a bright blinding affecting a 10 foot radius, forcing all but the recipient to make a Reflex save DC 10 + recipient's Con modifier, or be dazed for 2 rounds. Can be used as a standard action, or as an attack of opportunity.
Laser - for 6 points the recipient can create a concentrated beam of light like a laser, dealing 2d6 points of fire damage, 20x2 critical, 40 ft range increment, as part of an attack action. Can increase damage by +1 die for +3 points.

Protection - for 8 points the recipient gains some protection from light based attacks for 5 rounds +1 round per +3 points. The recipient gains +5 bonus against any light based attacks that might blind or daze them, such as daze spell, flash bangs, etc. Against light based attacks, such as lasers, gains resistance 5.

Burn MGH
This MGH is derived from mutants with pyrokinesis abilities. The user can engulf themselves in flames for 5 + Con modifier rounds at a time before requiring a 10 round cool down period. While engulfed in flames, gains a +2 Deflection bonus to Defense, immune to fire attacks (doesn't include laser or light based attacks that deal fire damage), and takes half damage from cold damage attacks. The recipient can launch, as an attack, a ball of fire dealing 1d6 fire damage, 20x2, 30 ft range increment, at any time, but while engulfed in flames, this fire ball deals 3d6 fire damage with a range of 60 ft.
Recipients who use Burn have a 25% chance that the source of the Burn MGH will grant them fly speed 60, average maneuverability, while engulfed.

Feral
This MGH is derived from mutants with animal traits, or those displaying more primitive qualities, granting enhanced physical abilities, but slightly reduced mental abilities. While under the influence of Feral, The recipient gains enhanced strength, senses, stamina, agility, speed and healing, as well as resistance to psionic abilities, gaining a +4 to all saves against psionic attacks or abilities. However the recipient also suffers -2 to Int and Cha, suffers -5 to any complex skills, although can use craft skills but only to make simple items. They see things as more simplistic, and more prone to flight or fight responses in a situation, such as when surprised would instinctively either flee quickly, or lash out violently initially.

Enhanced Strength (Ex) +2 Str
The recipient has enhanced strength, as reflected in ability bonuses, plus the recipient's carrying capacity is calculated as if the recipient had Strength +8 higher, not encumbered until reaches heavy load, unarmed strikes deal lethal damage without penalty.

The recipient can hold breathe 3 times longer than normal, able to run, force march or any other physical activity that would require a Fort save after performing for triple the time before needing to make a Fort save and gains a +4 to the Con or Fort save. Requires only 4 hours of rest to remove Fatigued condition, 30 minutes of rest to remove Exhausted condition. The recipient isn't considered disabled until -10 hit points, able to perform normally until reaching -10 hit points.

Enhanced Agility (Ex) +2 Dex
The recipient has enhanced agility, gaining +4 to Balance, Jump, Move Silently and Tumble. When falling, treats falls as 20 feet less with a successful Tumble check.

Enhanced Speed (Ex)
The recipient moves faster, +10 ft to land speed, reflected above, plus the recipient runs at 8 times speed instead of normal 4 times (approximately 14 mph for average human).

Enhanced Healing (Ex)
The recipient's healing ability is increased to greater than normal. The recipient heals at double rate when resting, healing 2 hit points per level per night of rest (8 hours). If recipient undergoes complete bed rest, they heal 4 times the normal amount, so 4 hit points per level.

Commissars
"The fires through which we pass in this life are but the light of the Emperor's forge. Our triumphs and tragedies are the heat by which we are tempered into weapons fit for his service."
-Commissar Captain Jourian Al'Eutar, Gunmetallicus 41st.

Commissars come from a subdivision of the Departmento Munitorum, the Officio Prefectus, are political officers tasked with keeping the troops of the Imperial Guard on mission and under intense discipline even in the face of some of the most terrifying threats in the Galaxy. They fight alongside the regiment's regular officers and take control when morale is flagging or the men are not fighting with sufficient zeal. In such situations a Commissar can take over command from a regular officer and summarily execute any man who tries to flee, or fails in their duties. Most troops fear and loath Commissars, and they are usually the first officers against the wall when a regiment mutinies.
As important members of the Imperium, they are highly respected, and feared, and have access to various items and sometimes even relics. Most are equipped with armour incorporated into their uniforms, armed with bolt pistols and a power fist or chain sword. Some higher ranking Commissars may carry relics or other advanced and ancient items or weapons.

Duty or Death!
If the Commissar finds any member of the Imperial Guard, of any rank, failing their duty, or showing signs of cowardice, the Commissar can execute them on the spot. Makes an attack roll at -5 but the attack is guaranteed critical with the critical modifier increased by one. Example a Commissar with a bolt pistol normally deals double damage on a critical, with this attack deals triple damage.

Forward For The Emperor!
The Commissar can lead Imperial Guardsmen in combat. When Imperial Guardsmen use For the Emperor!, they can use the Commissar's attack bonus to make their attacks with, including gaining a bonus attack when using a full attack action.

There Is No Fear But Me!
The Commissar, as a full round action, can inspire through a rousing speech, or through fear and threats, others into fighting harder, and resist the evils of the Warp and Chaos. Commissar must make a Charisma check DC 13, and lasts 1 + Cha modifer rounds, and can affect up to 50 guardsmen per Cha modifier (100 for average Commissar). Inspired (or terrified) allies gains +1 to resist fear and mind affecting effects, +2 to attack rolls.


Bolt Pistol (PL6 Personal Firearms Proficiency)
Damage: 2d12+4 + 2d6
Critical: 20
Damage Type: ballistic + fire
Range Increment: 60 ft
Rate of Fire: S
Size: Medium
Weight: 9 lb
Ammo: 30 box
Purchase DC: 25 Mil (+3)
Notes: Masterworked, +1 attack roll, Digital Ammo Counter, DNA Lock, Weapon Link, 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 Pistol 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 -2 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 Bolt Pistol. 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.
Ammunition: Box of 50 .75 Bolts rounds has a PDC 12.
DNA Lock - A sensor in the handle reads the DNA of the user, if it does not match the assigned user, the weapon locks and will not fire. Changing the assigned user requires the user, or authorized mechanic, a Computer Use check DC 20 and the new assigned person. An attempt to forcibly change the assigned user, or disable the device requires a Computer Use check DC 27.
Weapon Link - The weapon links to the HUD and Black Carapace of the Space marine, allowing the marine to 'sense' the weapon, know how many rounds are left, know if the barrel is too hot, if there is a jam and where, and use any attached scopes or other equipment without looking at it, useful for looking around corners. Using scopes without looking through the scope only provides half bonuses.
