Q&A

  • Keith King (PATRON) -
    To jump into a rigged device that you don’t own or you don’t have permission from the owner you need
    1. The drone to have a rigger adaption
    2. You need to have a control rig
    3. You need to have 3 marks
    4. You need to pass the Electronic Warfare + Logic [Data Processing] v Willpower + Firewall test
    5. Finally, no one is already currently jumped into the device.

    How does a pure rigger get the 3 marks need to complete the Jump into Rigged device action into an enemy drone?

    I have read that you can get sleaze and attack attributes can be added through the info in data trails, but this is a CRB matrix action so I assume there is another way.

    The only other way is (according to the forums) a controversial way using a friendly decker to use spoof command "invite mark" to allow the riggers RCC to gain the required 3 marks. BUT given spoof command “making the device think that your command is a legitimate one from its owner” is the Electronic Warfare test even needed?
  • Lots of audience questions...

Q&A

 

  • Chris Vandergriff (PATRON) - We all hear nightmarish stories about the "horrors", and how some were trapped on this metaplane when the magic waned. What about the angelic forms? Is there a plane from which one could summon a Planatar or Solar (both D&D trademarks of Wizzards of the Coast)?
  • Keith King (PATRON) - I have a rigger in my gaming group that always runs his roadmaster im offline mode whilst connected with a DNI in the safety of a his cocoon. This is partly to protect the vehicle from deckers but also his RCC. Currently the penalty for running in this mode is he can't wirelessly control any of his other drones. As the RCC is offline obviously. But the only real penalty I can apply to the road master is that offline he can't utilize and maps to navigate with. This means in a car chase if traveling to a specific destination I rule that another player has to be on their commlink yelling out directions (using both simple and complex actions). I was wondering as fellow gm's do you a) allow riggers to run vehicles they are plugged into offline and b) of so what penalties do you apply for doing so. As we all know "everything has its price".
