11 - Equipment

<< Complications                   

    Skills, abilities, and magic alone aren’t always enough to see characters through to victory. They need the right gear. This section includes an example equipment table listing the price, characteristics, and mass of various items adventurers might want to have.
    The price list has prices in gold pieces (“gold”, g), silver pieces (“silver”, s), copper pieces (“pennies”, p), iron pieces (“bits”, b) and is based on the following economic assumptions: 
· The economy is primarily silver-based; gold coins are rare, and most folk use copper and iron coins on a daily basis
· Average daily wage for an unskilled manual laborer: 1s (skilled labor is worth more, depending on various economic factors)
· Average yearly income for a family of five: 576s (2s per day, 12s per week, 48 weeks of work per year)
· Average cost of living for a family: 5-10s per week
· Average room for one night at an average inn: 2s (often includes 2 meals)
· Average meal at an average inn: 1p
· Average mug of ale at an average inn: 5b
· Average price of a loaf of bread: 2p
· Listed items are reasonably available; the law of supply and demand may alter prices
· 1000b = 100p = 10s = 1g
Character Sheet Notes

Equipment should be recorded in the Powers and Equipment section of the Character Sheet. However, you need not record the point value of equipment. Weapons you will probably want to summarize in the Attacks & Maneuvers section on the front page, and Armor will contribute to the values recorded in Defenses.

Character Creation Steps
1. Grab a blank Character Sheet
2. Choose a Racial and Cultural Template (20 points)
3. Choose an Archetype (25 points)
4. Choose a Disposition (15 points)
5. Choose a Background (10 points)
6. Choose Characteristic Sets (5 Sets; 50 points)
7. Choose additional Abilities (Skills, Talents, or Perks; 30 points)
8. Choose 50 points of Matching Complications
9. Purchase Equipment with 250 SP

STARTING WEALTH

    All PCs start the game with 275s. This may not represent actual cash in hand, but equipment obtained earlier in their lives from patrons, as battle-trophies, or the like.

    Many Perks provide a bonus to starting wealth. The Perks which contribute to Starting Wealth are: Money, Social Status, Professional Guild, and Arcane Guild. Additionally, Thieves’ Guild and Military Rank provide a bonus equal to half the value listed for Guilds. The Cleric Perk and Shaakdaar do not provide a starting wealth bonus.

LEVEL      MONEY      SOCIAL       GUILD

ENCUMBRANCE

Getting Into and Out of Armor

Shields: ½ phase (ready or drop), 1 phase to sling on back (using 2 hands)
Cloth, Leather, Studded Leather: 10 phases* (don/doff) or 4 phases (don hastily)
Scalemail, Splintmail, Chainmail: 40 phases* (don)/10 phases* (doff) or 10 phases (don hastily)

Don Hastily imparts a penalty of -1 DEX/DCV until the character spends the appropriate time refitting the armor.

With the help of at least one person these times can be cut in half.

    A character that carries around heavy equipment may become encumbered, and therefore not able to fight as well as he normally can. As indicated on the accompanying table, encumbrance can affect the character’s DEX-based rolls, DCV, Essence Shaping Skill, rate of movement, and may tire him out quickly.

Total Weight Carried: A percentage of the total weight a character can carry. Values indicate the threshold at which to apply Penalty, Move Mod, and END Drain.

Penalty: The penalty to a character’s DCV and all DEX Rolls, as well as the Essence Shaping skill.

Move Mod: Modification to Movement. 

END Drain: Reduction in END. END returns at a rate equal to the character’s REC over a rest period of one step up on the Time Chart from the duration of exertion. For example, being Encumbered all day (Time Chart: 1 Day) will allow the character to recover per 6 Hours of rest.

Coldiron                                  80s      1          This metal is believed to have flown the Void and to have been tempered in the fires of the sky by Modren, Larayil, and Grethken. Any attempt to blend Coldiron, or melt it, destroys its innate properties and it becomes simple iron. Weapons and shields made of Coldiron can be used to Block (Maneuver) magical attacks with a Chaos or Qliphothic special effect. Voidspawn and Qliphothic Entities are especially vulnerable to Coldiron. Used instead of Steel. Notes: Power Defense 6 (Only Works Against Chaos), Will Not Rust.

WEALTH AND LIVING EXPENSES

            A character must expend a certain amount of wealth for food, shelter, and general living expenses when not adventuring. This expenditure reflects the character’s lifestyle and can impact her social status or her ability to interact with other members of society. This will be reflected by what clothes she wears, the locations she frequents, how she smells, and even the slang she uses. This can also impact Interaction Skill rolls and Presence Attacks.

Lifestyle                               Expenses   Level         Notes

None                                      —               0                Survival is a daily challenge

Destitute                                2s                1                Basic shelter, subsistence food and water

Poor                                       4s                2                Shared shelter and basic nutrition

Average                                  8s                3                Simple bed and board with some dignity

Comfortable                           16s              4                Most professionals and adventurers

Wealthy                                 32s              5                Most guild members and merchants

Social Status (per Rank)        8s*              +1              It is important to live up to one’s status

* Add to a base of 8s 

Expenses: This is the Price per week to maintain this Lifestyle. When improving a character’s Lifestyle, it takes four weeks of maintaining the new Lifestyle before the character is considered to be at the new level. If the character is downgrading her lifestyle, the effect will be immediate except among those who know her. These prior acquaintances will register the lower Lifestyle at the end of the fourth week of reduced Expenses.

Level: The numeric level of the Lifestyle. Half the numeric difference between the character’s Lifestyle Level and that of another is a modifier to Interaction Skills, or the dice modifier to Presence Attacks. The maximum modifier is +/- 3. If the disparity in Lifestyle is favorable, the modifier is a bonus. If the disparity is not favorable, the modifier is a penalty. For example, a destitute character is trying to convince a wealthy merchant to assist her. This is a Lifestyle difference of 5, which results in a modifier of 2 or 3 (it rounds in the character’s favor). The destitute character is therefore -2 on any Interaction Skill rolls or -2d6 on any Presence Attacks (unless she were trying to scare the merchant, then it would be a +3d6 bonus). Conversely, if the Merchant were to interact with the destitute character, the destitute character is going to feel more compelled to help since she knows the merchant has resources that can make her life even worse if she refuses, and thus the merchant would get a +3 bonus.

Malfunction

All Greypowder weapons have a Malfunction die of at least 1d6. This is like Unluck – if the Malfunction die results in a 1, there is a malfunction. Roll on the table below.

Malfunction Table

Roll 3d6 Unluck to determine the result (Droth and Modren have influence; Malice will increase, Grace will decrease).

Unluck     Effect

3 Points     Explode

2 Points     Complication

1 Point      Delay

0 Points     Dud

Explode: Cause weapon damage to High Shot Hit Location on the shooter; DEX Roll or suffer Flash with dice equal to Weapon DC; weapon destroyed. Explosives apply all damage to the character’s hand and to the general area as appropriate.

Complication: Weapon Malfunction dice increased by +1d6 and the weapon is -1 OCV until repaired (1 Hour Action). Explosives are triggered 2d6-1m from the character in the direction of the original target.

Delay: Weapons require a DEX Roll to clear a jam (Full Phase Action, PS: Gonnesmith complements). Special Failure increases the Malfunction dice by +1d6. Explosives are delivered to the target as normal, but are triggered at some random point in the future: every subsequent Segment roll 1d6 and trigger the explosives on a result of 6. Add a cumulative +1 to the roll for each Segment after the first that the explosive does not trigger.

Dud: The weapon does not fire, or the explosive does not trigger and cannot be reused.

These suits of armor include gloves, helm or hood, and boots, covering all Hit Locations except the face (Loc 3). Platemail and Plate armor may include full helms or great helms as the character wishes.

ARMOR KITS

These are common assemblies of armor, focusing on heavier protection for the torso. These are constructed using the Sectional Defense Limitation (p. XX) and applying the Mass Multiplier to both Mass, Price, and Max DEX/DCV (e.g. torso is x0.4 for Loc 9-13). BODY is determined by the new Mass.

HELMETS

A common configuration is a chain coif and pot helm worn over an armored hood or armored doublet (which includes a hood). Layered, this provides Normal PD/ED +12 against hits to the head, and the chain with pot helmet combination provides Resistant Protection 5 PD/5 ED, Hardened to a good portion of the head (Loc 4), but no coverage for the face (Loc 3). This can be improved by switching to a Full Helm or a Great Helm.

Gauntlet Lock             18s      0.25    +10 STR; Only To Resist Disarm Attempts, Full Phase to Lock/Unlock; Added to full suits of armor or gauntlets

Shield Spikes               10s      0.5      Bash: +1d6N, STR Min +1

SHIELDS

            Any attack which misses the target by an amount equal to the DCV of the shield strikes the shield for standard effect damage (i.e. 3 points per 1d6), halved — most attacks are deflected harmlessly. Any attack that penetrates the shield PD/ED + BODY will cause 1 BODY to the shield (unless the shield was specifically targeted by the attack in order to break it). Attacks with the Limitation Beam cause no damage to the shield when they penetrate.

            Metal shields are crafted with light steel plates over a wood or leather frame and are not solid metal.

Shield Cover

            The Shield Cover Power allows the character to use the shield for Resistant Protection rather than DCV. The character pulls the shield in to absorb the blow rather than trying to deflect incoming attacks. There is no shield DCV bonus if the shield is being used for Cover. Any attack which strikes the target will strike the shield if the Cover applies. Attacks which penetrate the Resistant Protection provided by Cover cause 1 BODY to the shield (Beam attacks cause 0 BODY), and deliver any remaining damage to the character. 

SHIELDS

Select Deflect, Bash, or Cover each Phase as a Zero Phase action. Tower shields only have the choice of Deflect or Cover.

KEY

All Objects

Price: The price of the item in gold pieces (g), silver pieces (s), copper pieces (p), or iron bits (b). See the text for information on the values of these coins.              

Mass: The object’s weight in kilograms (1 kg = 2.2 pounds), unless some other unit of measure is noted.

Notes: Any additional information about the object.           

Armor

            All armor has the following Limitations: Focus (OIF, -1/2), Real Armor (-1/4), Mass (Normal Mass, -1), and Limited Stacking (-1/4). Shields are built as Multipowers and require the character to choose one of three slots (Deflect, Bash, or Cover) each Phase.

PD: Resistant Protection (PD) provided by the armor. H indicates the Resistant Protection is Hardened.

ED: Resistant Protection (ED) provided by the armor. H indicates the Resistant Protection is Hardened.

Max DCV: Maximum DCV Characteristic character can use while wearing this item (only the Characteristic is limited).

Max DEX: Maximum DEX Value character can use while wearing this item.

PER: Penalty to Sight/Hearing PER while wearing the armor.

STR: STR Minimum to use a shield. Reduce the DCV/OCV bonuses for the shield by -1 if the character does not have enough STR. If the STR Minimum is 5 greater than the character’s STR he cannot effectively wield the shield.

BODY: The BODY of the armor should it be attacked. This does not add to the character’s BODY characteristic. Any time the character takes damage, the armor suffers 1 BODY damage unless the attack has the Limitation Beam.

Layered: Armor may be worn with Heavy Armor without penalty.

Stacking Armor: Heavy armors are often layered over light armors. Resistant Defenses from the light armor is added as usual to Normal Defenses but not to other Resistant Defenses. Instead, only the higher of those values is used. (See Limited Stacking p. XX.) The worst Max DCV and DEX value of either armor applies. If the armor does not have the Layered modifier, reduce the Max DCV by -2 and the Max DEX by -4.

Loc: Hit Location number on the Hit Location Table.

All Weapons

1 1/2H: Required Hands (One-And-A-Half-Handed Weapon); +2 STR Minimum to wield One-Handed             

2H: Required Hands (Two-Handed Weapon). To wield On-Handed choose one of the following options: Increase the STR Minimum by +5; Increase the STR Minimum by +3 and impose a -1 OCV penalty; Reduce both the damage by -1 Damage Class and -1 OCV plus an additional -1 for each full 5 STR below the STR Minimum. OCV penalties can be off-set by appropriate Penalty Skill Levels.                   

AP: Armor Piercing

Effect: The weapon’s effects, typically beginning with the amount of Killing Damage the weapon does, unless otherwise specified. Damage types include Slash, Crush, Pierce and others. These damage types are only relevant if the target has different defenses against certain damage types/special effects.

N: Normal Damage                

No horse: Characters cannot wield this weapon while mounted (a -1/4 Limitation).          

OCV: This is applied as a bonus or penalty against all attacks made with the weapon. OCV bonuses are bought as a 2-point Combat Skill Level with the Limitations Focus (OAF), Required Hands, and Real Weapon. OCV penalties are a minor Side Effect (automatically occurs; -1/2) for the weapon and can be offset with appropriate Penalty Skill Levels.

Only On Horseback: Characters can only wield this weapon while mounted (a -1/2 Limitation)

Range: The maximum range of the weapon.

RBR: Reduced By Range (-1 Damage Class per -2 Range Modifier). RBRx2 loses damage twice as fast (-1 Damage Class per -1 Range Modifier)

RBS: Can be thrown or is muscle-powered; weapon has the Range Based On STR Advantage.

RC: Recoverable Charge

RMod: This represents a modifier to the weapon’s accuracy at Range. Positive values (bought as 1-point Penalty Skill Levels vs. the Range Group with the Focus and Required Hands Limitations) help to offset the standard Range Modifier; RMod can never raise a character’s base OCV, it can only negate penalties. Negative effects are a minor Side Effect (automatically occurs; -1/2) for the weapon and can be offset with appropriate Penalty Skill Levels.

RP: Reduced Penetration. When applied to Normal Damage attacks double Normal Defenses vs. the BODY damage caused by the attack.

STR: STR Minimum. Reduce STR Min by -3 if using two hands with a One-Handed weapon. The Brace Maneuver reduces the weapon’s STR Min by 5.

            Every +5 STR over the minimum increases the damage by 1 Damage Class.           

            #: +6.25 STR required per +1 Damage Class.

            ##: +7.5 STR required per +1 Damage Class.

            ###: +8.75 STR required per +1 Damage Class.

            †: STR Minimum Doesn’t Add To Damage.

            *: plus an additional +1.25 STR required per additional Damage Class (Only When Thrown).

STUNx: This is the STUN Multiplier for Killing Damage. Apply the STUNx modifier to the STUN Multiplier roll (or to the STUNx for the Hit Location struck, if the campaign uses Hit Location rules).

Hand-to-Hand Combat Weapons

            All HTH Combat weapons are built as HKAs (or HAs) with the Advantage Reduced Endurance (0 END; +1/2) and the Limitations Focus (OAF; -1), Real Weapon (-1/4), and Strength Minimum (varies). Many also have the Required Hands Limitation.                                    

Ranged Weapons                                         

            Ranged weapons are built as RKAs with some or all of the following Limitations: Focus (OAF; -1), STR Minimum (varies), Required Hands (varies), Real Weapon (-1/4), Beam (-1/4), and Charges (indicating the number of rounds of ammunition the average user carries).
