Getting started[edit]

Congratulations! Vault Tech welcomes you to join us in our new Endeavor. The "Vault Tech 5e Supplement" will guide you through simulating various possibilities of the world outside your patented Vault-Tech Vault! There are a handful of additional rules one must keep in mind:

  • Radiation
  • Bleeding (activates on all damage types except energy).
  • Infection.
  • Critical Hit Table
  • As magic generally does not exist in this setting, Arcana is used to determine one’s ability to maintain, repair, and mechanically control weapons and other machinery, such as terminals or robots.
  • You regain 1/4 of your hit die maximum at the end of a long rest.
  • Being prone only grants disadvantage on ranged attack rolls that are made against creatures within 10 feet.

Critical Hit Table[edit]

When you score a critical hit on an attack roll, you must roll 1d20, taking the respective result. Mechanics that have (+/-X) means that you can make a DC 15 Medicine check once per hour. On a success, the DC and effect decreases by 1. Once this has happened X amount of times, you no longer suffer from the effect. Certain effects have unique results if they happen more than once. If a result has a slash, flip a coin and call the result while it’s in the air. On a successful call, the effect is cured with one use of a doctor’s bag or 5 successful DC 15 Medicine checks that can be made once per hour. On a failed call, the effect becomes permanent.
