ABILITY SCORES

Score Generation is determined by base Race and Templates
Scores still use the same D20 Modern table to determine Ability Score Modifiers

STRENGTH (STR)
Any creature that can physically manipulate other objects has at least 1 point of Strength.
A creature with no Strength score can't exert force, usually because it has no physical body or because it doesn't move. The creature automatically fails Strength checks. If the creature can attack, it applies its Dexterity modifier to its base attack instead of a Strength modifier.

DEXTERITY (DEX)
Any creature that can move has at least 1 point of Dexterity.
A creature with no Dexterity score can't move. If it can act, it applies its Intelligence modifier to initiative checks instead of a Dexterity modifier. The creature fails all Reflex saves and Dexterity checks.

CONSTITUTION (CON)

If a character's Constitution changes enough to alter his or her Constitution modifier, his or her hit points also increase or decrease accordingly at the same time.
Any living creature has at least 1 point of Constitution.
A creature with no Constitution has no body or no metabolism. It is immune to any effect that requires a Fortitude save unless the effect works on objects. The creature is also immune to ability damage, ability drain, energy drain, and massive damage, and always fails Constitution checks.

INTELLIGENCE (INT)

Any creature that can think, learn, or remember has at least 1 point of Intelligence. A creature with no Intelligence score is an automaton, operating on simple instincts or programmed instructions. It is immune to all mind-influencing effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns and morale effects) and automatically fails Intelligence checks.

WISDOM (WIS)

Any creature that can perceive its environment in any fashion has at least 1 point of Wisdom.
Anything with no Wisdom score is an object, not a creature. Anything without a Wisdom score also has no Charisma score, and vice versa.

CHARISMA (CHA)
Any creature capable of telling the difference between itself and things that are not itself has at least 1 point of Charisma.

SCRUPLES (SCR)
The ability to discern right from wrong. Willingness to keep word etc. This does not reflect on "Good vs Evil" or "Law vs Chaos/Anarchy". A creature with 0 is a Sociopath, or a machine lacking the ability to make moral judgement.



POINT BUY SYSTEM

Scores begin at Zero.
Each point allocated for the first 10 points is worth 1 PB.
Each point allocated for 10-16 is worth 2 points.
Each point allocated for 18+ is worth 3 points.

Some races may modify aspects of this slightly.
No starting score may be more than twice the lowest score.



NATURE AND DEMEANOR
(Shamelessly stolen from WoD and modified a bit)

Characters chose both Nature and Demeanor from the following list of archetypes.

NATURE:
This is fundamentally who you are deep inside. This is the personality you were born with and developed growing up. Even basic AI has a nature - usually a very simplistic one.
Each nature will give a list of Guiding Principles as bonuses and penalties that are earned/applied due to roleplaying choices. Nature can never be altered without major neurological work on the character.

DEMEANOR:
This is the "You" you present to the world. It could be a mask to cover up who you are inside, or you could be genuine and present the same as your nature.
Demeanors add a list of optional extra Guiding Principles of which characters will need to chose one. This can be altered through life events/experience as the character progresses through the game. Most Natures will give additional bonuses if Demeanor and Nature are the same.

PATH:
Characters must chose a path for their character development. This will be a "goal" Demeanor. This may be the character's current Demeanor or Nature or something entirely different. Demeanors will list what is required to obtain in order to progress along a path to it.

CODES OF CONDUCT
Each character must have one of these, and must adhere to them or suffer major existential crisis issues.
Scruples, Nature and Demeanor requirements must be met to chose any specific type.

The rules listed for each Code of Conduct must be followed, failure to follow them can lead to XP penalties or forced abandonment and period of Personal Existential Crisis by the GM.
If a character has a good reason to abandon a Code of Conduct (though life experience and shifting Path), then the new Path is adopted and the character will suffer an XP gain penalty for a period of time as set by the GM.


Personal Existential Crisis:
Requirements: Unable to meet any other Code of Conduct requirement.

Select a Demeanor that is not your current Demeanor for your Path, and a Code of Conduct that requires that Demeanor Archetype and who's other requirements you meet.
You must adhere to the new Code of Conduct and work on your Path.

All XP gain is halved until you complete the new Path to your GM's satisfaction.

Roll twice on the minor psychological disorder chart. These disorders will vanish once you have selected a new Code of Conduct.

If the Character also has the Favored Occupation for their Code of Conduct, they receive a 5%XP discount when Spending XP within their Occupation.

Honorable Agent
Scruples: 10+
Allegiances: Law
Nature: Any except - Addict, Conniver, Deviant, Devilís Advocate, Fatalist, Sadist, Trickster, Tycoon. Some allowed Archetypes may find this Code of Conduct problematic at times.
Demeanor: As above.

These are the people you can trust to act true to themselves, and act true to the others around them. They could be the cruelest Tyrant known to the Galaxy, but you know they will always keep their word and act within their personal code of conduct. Their main flaw is to be too rigid in thinking and become predictable.

- Must always tell the truth from their perspective.
- Will not break a deal unless forced to do so. Reluctant to make deals.
- Must develop a set of personal rules for Honor (some races/cultures will have these defined) and follow them whenever possible. These must not conflict with Nature or Demeanor. These may simply be lifted from other Codes of Conduct as they suit the character.

Favored Occupations: Government Services, Religious

Compassionate Actor
Scruples: 14+
Allegiances: Good
Nature: Adjudicator, Artiste, Benefactor, Caregiver, Caretaker, Defender, Director, Fanatic, Futurist, Guru, Idealist, Martyr, Meddler, Scientist, Vigilante, Visionary
Demeanor: Adjudicator, Artiste, Benefactor, Caregiver, Caretaker, Defender, Director, Fanatic, Futurist, Guru, Idealist, Martyr, Meddler, Scientist, Vigilante, Visionary (maybe some more to be added)

Always seeking out those in trouble. They are the ones who will come up to after a tragedy ask if there is anything they can do for you. They might offer advice or bake you a cake when you are down. Unable to turn away from suffering they are a source of both admiration from fellow companions and constant frustration.

- Cannot ever refuse an honest request for help (may distrust a request under some circumstances, but must always ensure the validity of the request under those conditions).
- Must always take genuine steps to fulfill requests for assistance.
- Cannot harm the innocent/defenseless or weak on purpose.

Favored Occupations: Medical, Government Services

Valiant Knight:
Scruples: 10+
Allegiances: Law and Good, Any Military or Police Force or similar
Nature: Adherent, Adjudicator, Caretaker, Competitor, Crusader, Defender, Fanatic, Idealist, Judge, Masochist, Paragon, Soldier, Vigilante
Demeanor: Adherent, Adjudicator, Autocrat, Benefactor, Bravo, Caregiver, Celebrant, Caretaker, Competitor, Conformist, Crusader, Curmudgeon, Defender, Director, Eye of the Storm, Explorer, Fanatic, Fatalist, Hunter, Idealist, Judge, Loner, Machine, Martyr, Masochist, Paragon, Penitent, Perfectionist, Soldier, Stoic, Survivor, Thrill-Seeker, Traditionalist, Vigilante, Visionary

"The first on the front line. The first to hoist the flag. That one cop who took a bullet for the civilians. When the forces of hell come knocking these people rush to hold the door shut. But as good as they are, don't expect many to lend money to a homeless bum or spend time healing the sick."

- Must maintain membership and obedience to Military, Law Enforcement or Paramilitary organisation/Order.
- Cannot break local laws even if disagree with them.
- Will not break a deal unless forced to do so. Will readily make deals and agreements with those they trust.

Favored Occupations: Government Services, Military, Religious

More to be added.

Unless noted all skills and feats work as per the relevant D20 Modern sources.

Base Skill Groups are noted in bold (and colour). Skills under each group require 2 points in the base skill for each point in the listed skill.
For example with 2 points in Combat Training you could purchase 1 skill rank in all of the subsequent skills. However to reach say 2 in Armor you would need to first raise Combat Training to 4 points.

For every 10 points one exotic firearm may be selected.
Martial Arts

Melee Weapons
Every 4 points in Melee Weapons provides +1 on melee attacks with melee weapons. For each 1 point select a single specific melee weapon and gain proficiency in that weapon.

SYSTEM AND PLANETARY ECONOMICS

Gaiyamato
2017-09-20, 12:08 AM
CORE DAMAGE CAPACITY (CDC)
This is the structural or core integrity of a creature or object. Any Creature or Object with 0 CDC and no MDC (see below) capacity is destroyed/deceased. Some creatures/objects may have no CDC and some MDC, these objects are jellies, liquid systems, ethereal or ghost-like and suffer penalties to interactions with the world due to a lack of ability to direct force or even interact with physical objects at all.

MEGA DAMAGE CAPACITY (MDC)
This is hard damage provided by armor, magic or some of form of protection. Most living creatures naturally lack MDC capacity, though most weapons will deal in MDC.

SDC Damage can be upgraded to MDC at 10:1 ratio. MDC cannot be used to substitute for SDC, but very high SDC can absorb MDC damage sources.

VITAL POINTS (VPS)
Vital points represent core physical weaknesses that can be destroyed to eliminate a creature of object. Almost all living things have only 1. If reduced to 0 a creature will be rendered incapacitated and will die in a number of minutes equal to half their CON score unless they receive emergency treatment. Permanent serious injury or disability may apply after recover.

When losing SDC make a Fortitude Saving Throw with a DC of 8+1/2 the SDC damage sustained for each attack (not total in a round etc. but each individual bullet for example). A failure indicates a wound has been lost.



ARMOR ABSORPTION TYPE
Armor of this type will reduce the damage from each incoming source - per hit - by the number indicated.

ARMOR DEFLECTION TYPE
Armor of this type will increase AC - reducing the chance to hit and cause any actual injury. Only powered armors are usually deflection types.

Some Advanced Armour types may utilize both systems.

ENVIRONMENTAL VS NON-ENVIRONMENTAL
Environmental Armor can worn in the vacuum of space or under the ocean (pressure tolerance may vary) and contains it's own method of supplying oxygen (or other gases/nutrients needed by the creature to survive).

Non-environmental armor may contain gas masks or independent oxygen supply, however it does not afford complete protection in extreme environments.

COMBAT POINTS POOL (CPP)

Each character has a number of Combat Points as determined by Templates, Feats and sometimes Skills.
Points may be spent to gain an action of a certain type during each round of combat.

As combat rounds are fixed periods of time, characters will large pools of combat points will essentially appear to move very fast, while those with few will be slow and sluggish to react, or even lack skills to fight.

Combat is ordered by highest pool first through to the smallest pool. Where multiple characters have the same pool they act simultaneously.

CRAFTING
Crafting now uses a points system for components and costs are in TUs and Parts by type. This section will likely take the longest to resolve.

SCAVENGING
Scavenging for now remains exactly the same as it is within the D20 Apocalypse book. More options will be added to here later.

SALVAGING
Will provide parts as per Scavenging as well as components to reduce the cost of building/repairing more complex equipment with the Crafting skills. Components will also be able to be built using Parts and TUs individually and stored, allowing characters to gradually save up to build much larger projects.

TECHNOLOGY

Technology levels come in layers now. Factional. System. Planetary. Regional. Local.

At each Technology layer set the *maximum* levels for each Technology Sphere. Structural. Electronic. Mechanical. Chemical. Social.

Factional level sets what is in general circulation across all worlds. At least one world controlled by a faction must have a Technology Sphere level that matches the Faction level.
If a System lacks sufficient technology levels, the items of higher levels will be available but at increased one rarity level per level difference.

System level sets the limit within that system. As per the Factional levels, for each Sphere, a Planet within the System must reach the same level.
Any planet lacking sufficient technology levels will import from out of the system or from other planets within the system. Items within the affected categories will be one rarity level higher (no matter the difference).

Planet levels set the level across the world. At least one region or Local must have technology level equal to that of any sphere.
Any region lacking the technology must import it at increased cost. TU costs for items from the same planet but different region will increase by 50%.

Planets can have one or more Regions depending on formation and colony type. Regions may have one or more Localities. There may be differences in some societies between localities within a region, due to different nations at different development levels, or large gaps in economic equality. It would be hard to find a Laser rifle in a slave pit or maybe a serfs farm.

PL levels:

0 - Stone Age.
1 - Bronze/Iron Age.
2 - Middle Ages.
3 - Age of Reason.
4 - Industrial Age.
5 - Information Age.
6 - Expansion Age.
7 - Fusion Age.
8 - Gravity Age.
9 - Energy Age.
10- Galactic Elder Age.

FACTIONS

United Socialist Empire of Earth
It has been almost a thousand years since Humanity finally united under a socialist banner in the previous great civil conflict. After expanding and filling their native solar system, great divisions in economic access and equality opened up into a tidal wave movement for socialist unity. At the heart of the Empire sits earth, now little more than multiple mega cities spanning each of the world's continents with pockets of nature preserved scattered within. The USEoE rapidly became an expansionist and technological leader, expanding into the stars and encountering the Valarn who had yet to fully leave their own world.
The military conquest of the Valarn was brutal and entirely one sided. With multiple species now making up the population of the Empire and the resources of two star systems, colony ships spread out into the Galaxy. The Empire now fully controls 8 systems - making it the largest of the Galactic Empires.

Human Liberation Front
Refusing to be crushed the HLF was for a long time a slowly dying remnant of the lost war against the socialist movement of the outer worlds of the Sun system. After the conquest of the Valarn their ranks began to grow again, swelling with Valarn and Humans who sought to create a new Republic of Federated worlds, built on the original ideals of the Industrial age and Information Age United Nations of Earth. They see humanity as being stagnated behind ancient and outdated ideas, and tyrannical governments as needless with the abundant resources now available. Fighting in open war against the Empire they have since seized several outer colonial worlds and a few minor space stations. Poorly equipped they are struggling against the ever-growing fleets and armies of the United Socialist Empire of Earth.

Note: Access to same Technological levels as the USEoE, but at increased rarity per level difference.

Sun system Yakuza Clans
Early in the civil war that saw the socialist revolution gain victory, the already incredibly wealthy and powerful crime organisations and families of earth unified into a single front and built their own fleets, seeking dominance. They failed to gain power for themselves however, and instead made a deal with the socialist alliance who at the time desperately needed additional resources but had built large fleets of their own. This has continued as an uneasy - and often broken alliance - ever since. Unable to openly operate in the Sun system they have instead colonized two systems for themselves and operate as a key trading partner for the Mars Chemical Engineering EXPD and Tashoun Arms as well as numerous small black market operators and smugglers within the Empire itself.
Allowed to return to earth recently, the Clan heads are once again largely based out of the Sun system, though few make a permanent home on Earth.

Access to Tashoun arms and Mars Chemical Engineering EXPD equipment above listed PL without increased rarity.

Democratic Guild of Engineers
Formed by famous Engineers from Human, Valarn and Yarn factions, the Guild began more as a corporation that primarily plied it's trade among various colonies and outposts across the Galaxy. Gradually the Guild began to acquire several such outposts outright and joined in the smuggling trade in competition against the Sun system Yakuza Clans. Now boasting their own "protection" fleets they have only recently begun to push their dominance over several worlds, coming into political conflict against the Glorious Empire of the Yarn and of the United Socialist Empire of Earth. Mostly they now remain in their massive engineering behemoth ships, with the functional technology of the worlds under their control largely pitiful.

United Android Front
More a political front that any serious faction as yet, the United Android Front is a movement pushing for Android and Robotic Autonomy - just as the Valarn managed. They found similar allies among the
Yarn and Mengu'o, placing them at odds with all three of the most powerful factions in the Galaxy to date. However they maintain peaceful protest and political action only and are tolerated by all three Empires, with many within the organic species even growing in sympathy for their cause. Primarily based within the United Socialist Empire of Earth there are some however who have begun to covertly build fleets, meet with the Human Liberation Front and stockpile weapons caches. Eventually, one way or another their cause will be resolved.

Lacking any centralized point of control they have access to whatever technology is in the local system.

Valarn Autonomous Protectorate
A subservient semi-autonomous region under the control of the United Socialist Empire of Earth. Their government is largely a puppet from the centralized Earth government with little power or force of their own. Though there are equally as many within who hold sympathies and even provide assistance to the HLF, just as many have found within themselves an acceptance of Human rule. They only have sole control over the Valarn homeworld and a few stations and mining rights within the Valarn system.

Faction Technology Levels:

Valarn

The Valarn government has access to some limited ships and military grade equipment from Earth. Civilians obtaining it on Valarn is very rare.

Valarn Drifters Guild
Cast off and adrift originally a group of Valarn refugees, now they have become Nomads, scavenging what they can where they can. They have formed a loosely clan-like social structure and have begun to adapt to deep space and low gravity life.

Lacking any centralized point of control they have access to whatever technology they run into.
