Rebelstar (4e Campaign Setting)/Equipment
From D&D Wiki
The default Future equipment was written with this setting in mind, so you can choose freely from it. Below is further information on specific items.
- Vacuum Suit (Level 1)
These are form-fitting suits designed to protect the wearer from the vacuum of space. They are manufactured by hundreds of different corporations, and spacecraft crews expect them to be standard issue. They are tough enough to protect from high-velocity particles, and provide insulation from a broad range of temperatures. They have a detachable, sealed helmet and ports to fit oxygen tanks. A self-sealing polymer layer prevents pressure loss for a limited number of punctures. Some models have additional layers of hard Duralite or Trialium.
Provides +3 AC, and the wearer adds their Dexterity or Intellligence modifier to their AC.
- Cost: 25 credits
- Storm Armor (Level 1)
Worn over a vaccum suit, this suit includes a cuirass and helmet of Coralloy or stressed Plasteel. Whilst the joints have powered support, this bulky suit still restricts movement and is generally only worn by breaching units, bomb disposal teams, or hazardous environment specialists.
Provides +7 AC, and the wearer reduces their Speed by 1.
- Cost: 50 credits
- Ballistic Shield (Level 1)
Constructed from stressed Plasteel.
Provides +1 AC, wielder can only hold a one-handed weapon.
- Cost: 25 credits
- Photon Shield (Level 2)
Laser firearms the most common kind of ranged weapon in the rebelstar universe. The photon shield is thus an important development, and manafactured by multiple corporations. Nominally a grip with a power cell, when activated a polarized laser disc of 1 foot radius appears to help deflect incoming photon beams.
Provides +1 AC, Resist Photon 2, wielder can only hold a one-handed weapon.
- Cost: 31 credits

Prototypes cannot be purchased. They are awarded to players in a treasure parcel, and have additional rules for burnouts and salvage.
- Photon (Level 2)
Designed by Joe Capricorn's ablest weaponsmith, Dino, these are close range weapons with a very high rate of fire. But they are inaccurate at anything other than close range. See Photon Repeater (4e Future Prototype)
- Starbolt (Level 4)
Capricorn's best design, the Starbolt is the deadliest weapon in 'Rebelstar Raiders'. They are explosive weapons which destroy almost anything they hit. But they suffer from a lack of range and ammunition. Never the less the weapon is the most effective of all weapons. See Starbolt (4e Future Prototype)
In the Rebelstar setting, energy shields are less effective. Any non-physical damage counts double against the temporary hit points provided by energy shields (rather than just electric damage).
