Bonus! - Character Creation Addendum

This addendum concerns Robots. As written, this race is very powerful. Even in the Sci-Fi Companion the beefed the racial cost +8. The Shaken and Wound bonuses are awesome, but don't really fit in with a C-3P0 style droid. So I'm making the following changes to the Construct racial ability.

Construct (+3): Droids are immune to poison, disease, and psionic effects that target the mind. Droids cannot heal naturally. To heal a droid requires the Repair skill—which is used like the Healing skill only with no “Golden Hour.”

I'll bring back the "+2 vs Shaken" and the "ignore Wound modifiers" for NPC Warbots, which will also remove the Asimov Circuit in favor of a Slave Circuit (that forces them to obey their commander's orders, even unto their destruction).

So standard Droids have the following racial abilities:

  • Asimov Circuit (-2): Pacifist (Major) hindrance.
  • Construct (+3): as noted above.
  • Programming (+2): One skill starts at d6.
  • Recharge (-2): Once per day or suffer Fatigue.
  • Low-Light Vision (+1)
