ENHANCEMENTS (-3 REFRESH)
Electro-magnetic Vulnerability [+1 Refresh]
All cyberware makes a character vulnerable to EMP weapons or events. When hit with an electro-magnetic attack of any kind, the attack adds Damage: 2.
Vehicle Link (-1 Refresh, 1 Aspect)
This allows the user to control a vehicle through direct mental control. The character plugs directly into a computer using interface plugs and cables, sending commands threw his own nervous system. Power servos then steer wheels, depress accelerators, and control braking. Gain a +2 to Drive or Pilot any vehicles that have which have had their normal control systems replaced by a computer.
- Aspect: Vehicle Zen
AQUAFORM: DIVER (Diving Reflex Analogs) [-3 Refresh]
This character is equally at home in air or liquid environments. They must still breathe air, but they don’t have to make an Athletics roll for normal swimming movements and they can move at their normal rate through liquid.
Note: This ability doesn’t confer the power to breathe liquid; the character must still breathe regular air unless another ability (such as Breathe Unusual Atmosphere) is purchased that states otherwise.
Damage Resistance [–1]
Aquaforms are generally tougher than normal to withstand the pressures of deep dives. They gain an additional mild physical
Environmental Immunity (Oceans) [-0]
Aquaforms are adapted to the conditions found in the oceans of Earth and Poseidon. They are immune to the salt and cold that are found in seawater.
Environmental Immunity (Pressure) [-1]
Divers are completely immune to high pressures found in the deeps of the ocean and can hold their breath for up to one hour under water.
STUNTS (-3 REFRESH)
You can squeeze a vehicle through places where it has no business fitting. Normally, you’d have to spend a fate point to declare that the vehicle has enough clearance space to fit through. You never need to spend a fate point—if it could fit, it does. What’s more, if you do spend a fate point, you can fit the vehicle into places it absolutely should not be able to go. This stunt also helps when landing vehicles in improbably tight quarters.
Aspect: Tactical Urban Assault Vehicle
- Vector Thrust Vehicle: The powerful Pegasus vector thrust engines make it possible to maneuver in even the most cluttered or restricted airspace. Gain a +2 to Maneuver when flying in tight quarters.
The nearest thing to a science fiction jet-car, the AV-4 Tac Vehicle was developed as a light assault aircraft capable of operation in close urban areas where rotary and tilt wing aircraft cannot penetrate. Short, bulbous, and equipped with only rudimentary maneuver wings, the AV-4 has the aerodynamic characteristics of a rock, relying on the brute force of it’s huge jet engine to keep it aloft. The AV-4 is used by police or corporate troops for urban assaults. They are also used as emergency vehicles-specifically by the Trauma Team organizations-or as corporate vehicles for special deliveries and meetings. It is also a favorite of smugglers because of the vehicle’s toughness and versatility. They usually have nose mounted canons and door guns.

Quinn Somerset was born on Poseidon in the town of Annotto Bay, Kingston in 2176. At at time of his birth Kingston was a small town of 4,000 natives but since the discovery of Long John it has swelled to over 93,000. He watched much change as a child as his family’s traditional way of life was trampled under the Long John rush. Quinn was always good with machines and was discovered to have quite a talent as a pilot. He used his skills to feed his family getting odd jobs ferrying passengers and even smuggling some goods. He ended up in Haven where he could find more lucrative jobs. And there he eventually came to the notice of the Gorchoff Vory that runs organized crime across much of Poseidon. Despite warnings from his brother, Ajay, an upstanding member of the Native Patrol, he began working for them.
STORY TITLE: DOWN TO EARTH
Quinn worked for years as a minor but well respected bush pilot and smuggler until he ran afoul of the Gorchoffs. He was on a run when he heard a noise from his cargo compartment. When he opened the sealed storage compartment he found a dozen people being held in stasis. Not wanting to be a part of human trafficking Quinn contacted his brother and turned his cargo over to him. The Gorchoff’s response was severe. They tracked down Quinn and he would have met a very violent end but for the efforts of his brother. Ajay managed to save Quinn and got him on a transport away from Poseidon back to Earth but he was captured in the process. Quinn is convinced he is dead. He hopes that he is beyond the Vory’s reach on Earth but he keeps a low profile just in case.
