More information...

A Cyborg can be any creature willing to change their bodies for the better. They are typically those who have lost limbs in combat, or are seeking to augment themselves.

A cyborg looks like anything the character wants, to DM/GM discretion. A human cyborg may be missing an arm and a leg, and where flesh meets metal it becomes jagged. They have no power core, as their cybernetics run on biological energy. Cybernetic eye color can be any color, and it glows.

Cyborg This is an inherited template. It may be taken upon character creation, or before, and may also be acquired post-creation.

Size and Type[edit]

A creature’s size and type will not change with the use of this template.

Hit Dice[edit]

If the creature has a cybernetic augmentation in his/her legs, gain +10 movement +5 for every size above medium

Armor Class[edit]

As metal type. If augmentation is adamantine, for example, it will have hardness of 20 and grant a creature a bonus to AC equal to that given when armor is made adamntine.

Full Attack[edit]

Hand Blast and Energy Blade deals any one energy type of damage, with the exception of positive and negative energy (necrotic and radiant). They may use these abilities at will, meaning to no limit.
