Cybernetics

Cybernetic Attachments

Two kinds of cybernetic attachments exist: replacements and enhancements.

Replacements

Replacements are prosthetic or artificial units intended to replace lost limbs and damaged organs. Common replacements provide no benefits other than duplicating the essential functions of their biological counterparts, and they present little strain on the beneficiary’s overall well-being. In appearance, a cybernetic replacement can be recognizably artificial or virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.

The most basic replacement limbs and organs don’t bestow any special benefits, but they suffer the usual drawbacks (see Benefits and Drawbacks, above). Some replacements of higher PL are built to counter certain drawbacks, as noted. They don’t add measurably to the recipient’s weight.

Enhancements

Enhancements bestow new abilities or improve the recipient in some fashion. Enhancements include skeletal reinforcement, subcutaneous communications hardware, and weapon mounts. Some enhancements have visible external components, while others are hidden beneath the skin. Enhancements put more of a drain on the body’s resources, and recipients frequently suffer debilitating physical or mental side effects.

Cybernetic enhancements are available starting at Progress Level 6. Unlike standard replacements, they bestow new abilities upon their recipients. Unless otherwise noted, enhancements don’t add measurably to a recipient’s weight.

Evolution of Cybernetics

As with all forms of technology, advancements in cybernetics can be tracked by Progress Level.

Rules Governing Cybernetics

These are all the logistical rules governing cybernetics, including acquisition, construction, etc.
