Displacer Field rules
« on: Yesterday at 11:54:04 PM »
Thought I would ask if someone has put together rules for a Displacer field.

Seems comparatively simple, roll a scatter die and D10 when hit, move them that direction, that many yards, same facing...otherwise potentially treat as another force shield varient.

They're already in the main rulebook, on the Armour and Forcefields page of the Armoury.

It has a 50% to activate when hit, increased by the damage caused (e.g. a hit doing 13 damage would have a 50+13 = 63% chance to activate).
If it fails, you take the hit as normal. If it passes, the hit is negated and scatters the character D10 yards (stopping 1 yard short if it would put them into a solid object or a hazardous environment).

Alright, haven't gotten to the Armoury in my in depth reading of the rules, just noticed that the damage section didn't list it and didn't see a source on the Wiki that said otherwise.

If that's the Carthax Wiki, while we list some community written skills and equipment there, we've never used it as an index of official rules - that would be on potentially shaky legal ground, as rules text is copyrightable.
