Mechanic

This skill allows a character to build and repair all manner of mechanical devices and tools, and grants her knowledge about mechanical systems and the like. The difficulty of repairing a mechanism depends on how intricate the device is, and how damaged it is. Constructing a mechanical item is also more difficult the more advanced and complex the device. Modifiers should be imposed by the Storyteller or Player. Remember:

  • A mechanical tool kit must be available for all but the most rudimentary repairs.
  • A lab or workshop may also be required.
  • All repair or construction attempts take time, ranging from a couple of hours to days. This should be determined by the Staff.

Notes for Use

  • Understanding an existing mechanical device calls for a Perception + Mechanic Task
  • Repairing or constructing a mechanism requires an Intelligence + Mechanic Task
  • It should be noted that this skill and the Electronics Skill complement one another, and often are used together to make repairs to an item or to construct an item.
