Facing
When a vehicle moves, its facing becomes equal to the direction it was moving at the end of that movement. Vehicles frequently have a minimum turning radius, as well, which is the smallest distance the vehicle can pivot around while moving.
Movement
Vehicular movement is fundamentally different from the movement of other creatures. Rather than taking actions to move, at the beginning of a vehicle's turn it travels according to its current Movement Mode; after doing so, it may adjust its mode up or down one step. The following are statistics of a Mode:
Minimum Speed: The minimum distance that the vehicle must travel each turn in this Mode.
Maximum Speed: The maximum distance that the vehicle may travel each turn in this Mode.
Turning Radius: The minimum radius of the circle that the vehicle may pivot around while moving in this Mode.
Instability: How shaky the movement mode is. It is a penalty applied to all attacks made by the vehicle or creatures on it against targets beyond their weapons' second range increment. Half the penalty, rounded down, is applied to all attacks made against the vehicle or creatures or objects on it from beyond the attacking weapon's second range increment.
Climb: How rapidly the vehicle can go upwards. If specified in meters, this distance is measured independently of lateral travel. If specified in degrees, this is the steepest angle it can use. It only matters for Aerial and Submarine movement modes.
Fuel Burn: How much fuel is expended per round at this speed, in kilograms or Power.
Types of movement modes:
Default (Ground): The vehicle travels along the ground. Unless otherwise specified, it collides with objects, rather than rolling over them, if they are more than 0.25 meters high.
Aerial: The vehicle travels through the air.
Submarine: The vehicle travels through liquids.
Aquatic: The vehicle travels on the surfaces of liquids.
Crashing
When a vehicle collides with something, both the vehicle and that thing share an attack with values dependent on their relative velocity; if the other thing is stationary or an unattended object, it is never missed. The relative velocity for a vehicle/non-vehicle collision is simply equal to the full distance the vehicle would have moved this turn. The relative velocity for a vehicle/vehicle collision is equal to that full distance added to the distance the other vehicle moved on its previous turn, using vector subtraction. The damage of the attack is 1d6-7 with 0 Demolition, and it flings the target 45 degrees to the side of forwards, 4 meters per wound. It deals +2 damage and +1 demolition with a relative velocity of at least 50 meters/round, another +2 damage and +1 demolition if at least 100 meters/round, and +2 additional damage and +1 demolition for every doubling of velocity. The weight of the attacker (see below) applies to the damage and Demolition it deals as well.
If both parties wish to avoid the collision, the accuracy of the attack is -1, and the AD being targeted is that of the higher entity. If only one party wishes to avoid the collision, the attack is equal to the non-avoiding entity's AD minus 2 and the AD being targeted is that of the other entity. If neither entity is willing to avoid the collision, the attack hits. If the attack hits, both entities are hit, and if it misses, both entities are missed, but critical hits are rolled individually.
The moving vehicle is slowed by each thing it collides with: if it hits something and does not reduce that thing to 0 or less HP or destroy it, it ends its movement there. Even if it is not stopped, its remaining movement is reduced by 40 meters times the Slowdown Multiplier for the obstruction, divided by the Slowdown Multiplier for the vehicle.
Weight | Damage Modifier | Demolition | Slowdown Multiplier |
---|---|---|---|
Less than 1 kilogram | -6 | -3 | ×1/8 |
1-10 kilograms | -4 | -2 | ×1/4 |
11-40 kilograms | -2 | -1 | ×1/2 |
41-200 kilograms | +0 | +0 | ×1 |
201-1000 kilograms | +2 | +1 | ×2 |
1001-5000 kilograms | +4 | +2 | ×4 |
5001-25000 kilograms | +6 | +3 | ×8 |
25001 or more kilograms | +8 | +4 | ×16 |
Sinking
When overloaded, a vehicle sinks. In the air, it falls at half the normal rate, and counts only half the distance fallen for fall damage. In the water, it has a sink distance of 5 meters. In neither case can the vehicle travel upward.
Attacking Vehicles
Main Body
The main body of the vehicle is subject to accelerated destruction from attacks that deal a lot of damage or have a high Demolition value, like objects are. Piercing weapons do not do actual harm to the body of the vehicle, but can pass through it with the same amount of ease as when shooting through a wall with the same HP and Toughness.
When a vehicle is reduced to 0 HP or less, it is destroyed, and each creature inside it takes one hit that does damage equal to the amount of damage left over after destroying the vehicle.
Components
Vehicles have special equipment which can only be hit from certain angles. A Left Side item, for example, can only be hit by creatures that have a firing line to the left side of the vehicle. A glancing shot is less likely to be effective than a perpendicular one: if the angle from the firer to the vehicle's side is more than 45 degrees, the item has Cover.
There is no penalty for attacking components normally, unlike when sundering items, although some components have their own AD values that you use when attacking the component rather than the main vehicle's AD.
Passengers
Creatures inside a vehicle are protected by it: An attack that tries to hit the creature must pass through 1 HP of the vehicle first, using the normal rules for firing through objects. The wound to the vehicle, if it is successfully inflicted by a non-Piercing attack, applies to its total health.
If a creature wants to shoot from inside a vehicle at targets outside of it without harming the vehicle itself, they must open some hole in the vehicle, like a window or porthole, and others that wish to fire back may then choose to treat the vehicle as total cover instead of shooting through it.
Mounting Weapons
Weapons can be mounted to vehicles with varying amounts of rotational ability depending on their weight. If it weighs less than half of the vehicle's carrying capacity, it is a Light Weapon, and can be mounted to fire in every direction except for a specified 90 degree cone. If it weighs more than that, but no more than the vehicle's carrying capacity, it is a Medium Weapon, and can be mounted to fire anywhere in a specified 90 degree cone. If it weighs as much as the vehicle's carrying capacity or more, it is a Strong Weapon, and can only be mounted to fire in one very specific direction, and the vehicle must be turned precisely to face its target.
Each properly mounted vehicle weapon comes with a specialized reloader, which contributes all actions necessary to reload the weapon, delaying when no reloading is necessary. The weapon braces count as two hands devoted to holding the weapon. For incremental reloads, the reloader has an effective carrying capacity equal to twice the reloader's weight (any weight may be chosen for the reloader, but it's added to the weapon's weight to determine if it's Light, Medium, or Strong).
Light Weapons have an Accuracy of +2, Medium Weapons have an Accuracy of +1, and Strong Weapons have an Accuracy of +0. Once per round, a gunner standing at the weapon can use a Standard action to fire a weapon two times, or once if it is Heavy, taking penalties to accuracy in order to make extra attacks with semiautomatic and automatic weapons as desired. The gunner may opt to use their own accuracy instead of the amount provided, at a -1 penalty if Light, -2 if Medium, and -3 if Strong. It is also possible to use a Standard action to Ranged Guard with a non-Heavy mounted weapon.
Grouping Weapons
Multiple weapons can be grouped together in order to make them easier for a gunner to fire, letting them all be fired with full effect at once as a single action, although they must always share the same group of targets, and no more than one hit may be allocated to each target per round. The attachments needed to group multiple weapons together cost 20 coins per weapon and weigh 20 kilograms per weapon. Use the total weight of the set of weapons including attachments to determine whether they work as Light, Medium, or Strong. If ten or more attacks are made by identical weapons in a weapon group, they use Regiment Rapid Rolling rules.
Pilot
A vehicle can be built to be controlled by any number of the following three methods:
Driver: The Driver controls the vehicle's actions from within as a move action each round. This either takes two hands or a wired connection to the vehicle.
Remote Control: As per a Driver, but the Driver controls the vehicle via a wireless connection. The wireless connection can be turned on or off at the vehicle as a standard action.
AI: The vehicle controls itself. Without the Advanced AI technology, the vehicle simply stops or lands at the nearest airport when it encounters danger, has no skills, and has a Perception of 0 (unless overriden by the Vehicle's stat block). With the Advanced AI technology, the vehicle can act in its faction's best interest even in dangerous conditions, and can be given Skills.
If a vehicle has wired or wireless connections, or an AI, it is susceptible to Hacking.
Vehicular Stealth
The Stealth of a vehicle is equal to that of the pilot, or -1 if there is no pilot.
A vehicle's engine can be heard at a distance equal to three times the distance it moved that turn, plus its size. Keep in mind that sound only travels about 5000 meters per round through air.
Options
Many vehicles have options, chosen when the vehicle is created.
Hijacking
It is possible to force your way into a vehicle. Attempting to do so is an attack option made against a Vehicle you are currently Grappling. If you hit the Vehicle's GD with an unarmed attack, and would wound it, you force your way inside the vehicle. Most vehicles are incapable of attacking their occupants.
