Future (4e Sourcebook)/Equipment
From D&D Wiki
Your Future character begins with:
- A set of armor
- Optionally, a shield
- A basic melee weapon
- A basic ranged weapon
Whilst there are many different types of armor and weapon, the following statblocks represent the baseline for each category. These represent generic mundane weapons and armor - swords, revolvers, shuriken, kevlar jackets, power armor and riot shields. Once you have gained some credits, more specific types of weapon and armor may be purchased through mods.
|Light armor||+3 armor bonus to AC. Whilst wearing light armor, you add your Dexterity or Intelligence modifier to your AC.|
|Heavy armor||+7 armor bonus to AC. Whilst wearing heavy armor, reduce your speed by 1.|
|Shield||+1 shield bonus to AC. Wearing a shield takes one hand, and you can't use that hand for anything else.|
|Unarmed Attacks||Ability||Accuracy||Damage [W]|

*This weapon requires ammunition
In 4e Future, ammunition is abstract: You either have ammo, or you don't. If you do, you can use ammunition to fire any weapon you have that requires ammunition. If you don't, you can't.
If you use ammunition only once in an encounter: You are managing your ammo reserves carefully. At the end of the encounter, you still have ammunition.
If you use ammunition more than once in an encounter: At the end of the encounter, you are out of ammo - so if you fire more than once you may as well unleash hell with your gun. You must aquire more before you can use a weapon that requires ammunition again. If you borrow some from an ally, then that ally is out of ammo. Ammunition is given to you by the DM as part of the treasure parcels.
You can buy a crate of ammunition in advance. Using an ammunition pack is a standard action, is used once only, and once used you have ammunition for all your weapons again.
An ammunition pack has a tech level. If you have a weapon with a mod of a higher tech level than the ammunition pack, then you cannot use the ammunition pack.
|Level 2||125||20 lbs|
|Level 4||175||18 lbs|
|Level 6||250||15 lbs|
|Level 8||350||12 lbs|
|Level 10||500||10 lbs|
