Verpine Outlaw Tech


Original Stats | Current Stats | Slaffing Board | Scorpion Droids


Background:
Among the most respected of the outlaw techs was a Verpine simply known as Sork. Unlike most verpine, he was born and raised into a life of luxury, son of a wealthy mining executive. His family wealth afforded him a valuable education, which honed his already prodigious technical talents.

Because of the exceptional education afforded him, he soon found himself working for Alherrodyne Systems. At first he enjoyed the work but soon became appalled by all the corners that were cut by the profit-hungry corporation. Despite his warnings, his employers went ahead and approved the release of the Azario 66, a product that proved faulty and resulted in many accidents. Eager to find someone to blame for the incident, the upper management of Alherrodyne pinned it on his family, bankrupting them.

After his family's demise, both blacklisted and credit-less, Sork drifted aimlessly into the underworld of the outlaw tech culture. During the early years of the Galactic Clone Wars, Sork sought refuge in Corporate Sector space, maintaining an outlaw tech base and black-market smuggling ring with like-minded friends.

There, he quickly became the most sought after security and demolitions expert and computer slicer in the CSA (Corporate Sector Authority). For his legendary repair and modification work, he was a wanted criminal throughout the Empire and the Corporate Sector, and still is to this day. Currently, he is on the run and hiding out in the Sarkosa Sector of the ORT, trying to lay low for a time.

Always seen with his slaffing board in tow, he is known as a verpine that can always get the job done, for a price.

Sork, through heroic deeds, is now the Chief Engineer on the Hujinn. His experience has now been officially recognized.

Personality: Whimsical and energetic, always curious and playful.
Physical Description: see image above
Objective: To correct the wrong Alherrodyne Systems Corp. did to his family

Special Species Abilities:

Body Armor: The Verpine's chitinous covering acts as armor providing +1D protection against physical attacks.
Microscopic Sight: The Verpine receive a +1D bonus to their search skill when looking for small objects because of their ability to see microscopic details with their highly evolved eyes.
Organic Telecommunication: Because Verpine can send and receive radio waves through their antenna, they have the ability to communicate with other Verpine and with specially tuned comlinks (a comlink an receive this signal at its normal distance). The range of this ability is extremely limited for individuals (1 km) but greatly increases when in the hive (which covers the entire Roche asteroid field).
Technical Bonus: All Verpine receive a +2D bonus when using their Technical skills.

Innate Abilities:

Natural Aptitude (Mechanical): When improving normal skills (not including specializations or Advanced skills) under MECH it costs one character point less. It also costs five character points less to improve the MECH attribute.
Ambidextrous: Can perform tasks equally well with your left OR right hand. This does NOT mean using both hands simultaneously.
Quick Learner: Things come to you naturally and you pick up new things with ease. When learning new skills, the character advances two pips above the attribute rather than the usual one pip. Notes: The cost in character points is the same as advancing one pip and time is reduced by at least one day.

Cybernetics:

Cybernetic Heart: Standard replacement heart lost during a battle with a Dark Jedi. Due to being cybernetic, his heart can pump blood through his body at twice the normal rate allowing for temporary acceleration for 1D rounds. Adds +1D to Stamina as a side bonus.

Prestige Class: Chief Engineer

Class Skills:
The skills available to a Chief Engineer to increase are:
Astrogation, Capital Ship Repair, Capital Ship Weapon Repair, Communications, Computer Programming/Repair, (A) Engineering (any), Search, Sensors, Space Transports, Space Transports Repair, Starfighter Repair, Starship Shields, Starship Weapon Repair, Technology, and Willpower.

Miracle Worker: Whenever a Chief Engineer uses his repair skill (any), he can make a difficult (20) repair roll using the skill appropriate to the task. For every point above the difficulty number is the number of hours the Chief Engineer can shave off of the job. Any and all other types of bonus can apply to this (combined action, etc…), but the very minimum the Chief Engineer can reduce repair tasks down to is one hour. This can only be done once per day.
Skill Bonus: At 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th levels, the Chief Engineer gains a +1D skill bonus to any one of the following skills: Capital Ship Repair, Capital Ship Weapon Repair, Computer Programming/Repair, (A) Engineering (any), Search, Space Transports Repair, Starfighter Repair, Starship Weapon Repair, Technology, and Willpower. This skill bonus is permanent.
Resource Contact: Starting at 3rd level, a Chief Engineer can requisition supplies or resources from a special contact; this can even be in the form of owing a favor or calling one in. The contact must be generated by the GM, with the Chief Engineer's player suggesting what sort of contact he would like to have. The maximum value of supplies or resources available through this contact is equal to the Chief Engineer's class level x the number of dice he has in his Perception score (dropping pips) x 100,000 credits. For example, a 3rd level Chief Engineer with a Perception score of 3D+2 could have up to 900,000 credits worth of supplies or resources available (3 x 3 x 100,000). These supplies or resources can include weapons, vehicles, repair costs or any other equipment. This total is the maximum value of supplies available to the Chief Engineer at any given time. Although no specific time limits are assigned, the Chief Engineer should still attempt to return any and all equipment borrowed within a reasonable amount of time. If any amount of requisitioned equipment is lost or destroyed, its value is counted as a permanent penalty to the Chief Engineer's maximum value; unless it is replaced. Though the contact will not accompany the Chief Engineer on adventures, he will provide information, supplies or resources and expert skills. The more powerful the contact, the less time he will have to spare the Chief Engineer. A Chief Engineer cannot call upon the same contact more than once per adventure.

      Fire Control: 3D
      Atmosphere: 3-60/120/240 m

Description: Super fast for a racing board, the Rocketboard is actually designed for slaffing, but can be used for any kind of outdoor fun. Game Notes: The board does not provide any cover, but can be maneuvered to block shots from low angles. Shields of up to 2D may be added, but the extra weight will reduce speed to 220; 600kmh and maneuverability to 3D. However, there are engine upgrades that can compensate for the losses. The cost is 2200 credits for the speed compensation and an extra 500 for the maneuverability package. Also, nearly any small weapon can be modified so that it can be mounted on the speeder. GM has final say on what weapon can be added.
