THE PROTOSS:  Equipment

Below are some of the basic forms of Protoss equiment.  The Protoss technology is far superior to that of the Terrans, so they are likely to have just about any of the standard Terran equipment available, and it's likely to be fairly improved in efficiency and design.

The Protoss have access to all the melee weapons listed in the Terran Equipment section.  They also have a number of weapons that utilize their psionic powers, focusing them into powerful Psi-Blades.  When deactivated, a standard Psi-blade appears only as a sword pommel with a Khaydarin crystal suspended at the blade end.  The wielder must focus her energies through the crystal to create a blade of pure psionic energy.

Damage:  Wielder's Psi: Psi-Blade Skill.
Scale: Character
Skill: Melee Weapons:  Psi-Knife
Difficulty: Easy (12).
Concealability:  Very Easy when deactivated.
Note:  The Psi-knife activates once the wielder holds it and concentrates (1 action).

Damage:  STR + Wielder's Psi: Psi-Blade skill.
Scale: Character
Skill: Melee Weapons:  Psi-Blade;  Psi: Psi-blade.
Difficulty: Moderate (15).
Concealability:   Easy when deactivated.
Note:  The Psi-blade activates once the wielder holds it and concentrates (1 action).

Damage:  STR + Wielder's Psi: Psi-Staff skill.
Scale: Character
Skill: Melee Weapons:  Psi-Staff; Psi: Psi-Staff
Difficulty: Easy (10).
Concealability:   Moderate when deactivated.
Note:  The Psi-Staff activates once the wielder holds it and concentrates (1 action).
     The Psi-Staff resembles a Psi-Blade except it extends a beam from either end of its grip.  The beams do not do cutting damage, but instead act as blunt weapon against a foe.  They will never do more than enough damage to Wound a target (regardless of what damage or Constitution rolls result), but they are more potent as stun weapons (double Stun times suffered by targets).  These weapons are used by Protoss sects that prefer to avoid mortal combat.  They are also more commonly used for self defense among the general Protoss populace because of their non-lethal damage.

The Protoss are familiar with most of the archaic and "modern" Terran missile weapons, but see them as crude and clumsy.  They generally prefer their own energy weapons for their elegance and nearly limitless psionic ammunition.

Psionic Bow
Damage:  2D + Wielder's Psi: Psionic Bow skill.
Scale: Character
Skill: Missile Weapons:  Psionic Bow; Psi: Psionic Bow
Range:  3-7 / 20 / 40
Concealability:   Very difficult.
     The Psionic Bow is a large weapon that resembles the Terran long bow.  It actually fires thin, elegant arrows tipped with crystals.  When the archer draws back the bow, he concentrates upon the arrow and transforms it into a glowing bolt of psychic energy.  These weapons are rarely used by Protoss troops today, but the art of psionic archery remains alive as a meditative practice and hobby.

Psionic Shot
Damage: 3D + Wielder's Psi Rating.
Ammo: 100.
Range: 3-7/25/50
ROF: 1 shot per round maximum.
Concealability: Easy (7)
     This is the standard Protoss pistol. It is actually rarely used by the Templars, who prefer to meet their enemies in direct combat and cleave them apart with the devastating Psi-Blades.  However, there are times when ranged weapons may be helpful, and Protoss soldiers will sometimes turn to Shots to do the trick.

Phase Disruptor Rifle
Damage: 5D + Wielder's Psi Rating
Ammo: 500.
Range: 5-20 / 60 / 90
ROF:  May Burst, but cannot provide Full Automatic fire.
Concealability:  Moderate (17).
     The Phase Disruptor Rifle is a smaller version of the weapons implanted into a Dragoon's shell.  It delivers a charged beam of antimatter particles sheathed in a psionic shell.  It is an extremely powerful weapon in the hands of an able Templar, but it is not a preferred battlefield weapon because Templars would rather directly engage their opponents and the Rifle can be temperamental and malfunction at inopportune times.

Protoss have developed two major forms of protection:  physical armor and psionic shielding.  The first is like the armor donned by the Terrans, though the Protoss armor tends to be made of high quality synthetics and is more stylized.  The second, shielding, is a technology apparently unique to the Protoss.  It uses small mobile shield emitters to focus passive waves of psychic energy around the wearer into a powerful, invisible reflective shield.

Heavy Robes
Type: Personal clothing.
Scale:  Character.
Armor Value:  5
Cost:  20-500 credits, depending on style.
Availability:  Easy.
Concealability:  Very Easy (but usually unnecessary).

Protoss Flight Suit
Type:  Cybernetic Pilot Suit
Scale:  Character.
Armor Value:  13
Availability:  Common.
Power:  12 hours of air supply.  No power needed to operate the suit.
Concealability:  Very Difficult.
Other:  Flight suits are sealed environmental suits to be worn in space or atmospheres with toxic environments.  Some suits may be suited with small jet packs for manuevering in low-gravity situations.

Cybernetic Powered Armor
Type:  Protoss Powered Armor
Scale:  Character.
Strength:  5D
Jumping Bonus:  +1D
Dexterity:  Operator's Dexterity
Armor Value:  20 / 15 / 10 / 5
(When the AV is reduced to 3/4, the suit will begin to malfunction.  The wearer will suffer -1D to all actions until it reaches 1/2 AV.  At that point, the penalty increases to -2D.  Finally, at 1/4 AV to 1 point, the wearer will suffer -3D.  When the AV reaches 0, what is left of the armor will freeze up.)
Shield:  40 
Complexity:  5
Optics:Light Amp, Computer Link
Communications:  Comm Link, Broadband Receiver
Vocal:  Standard speaker.
     The Protoss Cybernetic Armor is the standard power suit worn by Zealot warriors into battle.  It provides ample protection against most light arms attacks and harsh weather conditions, can endure deep space exposure, and will feed and support its wearer for days on end.  Each suit is equipped with a small mobile shield emitter which will continually recharge itself with the wearer's excess psionic energy.

The Protoss have the most advanced computer technolgy of any known race.  Not only is the raw power of their computers impressive, but their interface is equally advanced.  Many Protoss computers are built with telepathic receivers that permit them to take commands directly from the user's thoughts. While this still requires a bit of training on the part of the Protoss user, it greatly speeds access time and processing.

The Protoss will likely have their own versions of any of the Miscellaneous Gear found in the Terran Equipment List, though it's likely to be a bit more advanced and stylized.   Below are some pieces of equipment unique to the Protoss.

Communications Gear
Telepathic Amplifier
Type:  Portable Long-Range Telepathic Communicator
Skill:  Communications
Availability:  Common.
Notes:  Most Protoss lack the ability to broadcast their thoughts long distances or the skill to focus on a single target with which to communicate.  Amplifiers allow nearly global telepathic communications between individuals or small groups.  They function very much a standard electronic commlink, but utilize brainwaves rather than the spoken word.  More advanced Amplifers may be fitted with language translation matrices or secure encoding mechanisms.

Scale:  Character.

  • Psi-Wave:  4D Psionic Damage (armor is useless).
  • Psionic Scream:  Acts like a Stunning grade for any target with a brain and no PSI rating (even those with 1D in Psi will be unaffected).
    • Damage:  7D Stunning damage that last for 30 seconds.
    • Area of Effect: 10 m for full damage.  Reduce Dice by 2D for each additional 5 m from point of impact.
    • Target may make an opposing Willpower roll to resist the effects, but will be at -1D to all other actions for the duration of the Scream.
Type:  Handheld lifeform scanner.
Skill:  Sensors
Availability:  Uncommon.
     These handheld units are often used by Protoss scientists when studying new life forms.  Because of the small size and limited resolution, the scanners are not perfectly precise and the user suffers -1D to Sensor rolls.  They may be further confounded by terrain, ambient radiation interference, and local weather condtions.  They have the following Sensor Ranges:
  • Passive: 100 meters
  • Scan: 1000 meters (1 km)
  • Search: 5 km
  • Focus: 10 meters.

Little is known of the Protoss vehicles outside of those used in battle.  However, their advanced technology has undoubtedly been put to use to better civilian transportation. Most vehicles run on the ambient power of the Psionic Matrix on Aiur, requiring no fuel and producing no emissions.  On outposts and other worlds where there is only a limited Psionic Matrix power source, the vehicles are modified to run on rechargeable power cells or the Psi of the pilot.

Finally, most vehicles are equipped with robotic pilots capable of driving, navigation, and self-diagnostics.  These vehicles will usually also have standard controls for a biological pilot as well.  Some other forms of transports may be found under the Robots section.

Description:  Slipbikes are elegant, sleek hovercycles powered by the brainwaves of their pilot (note that no Psi is actually needed to power the bike).  While the pilot holds on to handlebars, the vehicle is actually steered by his Willpower.  Many Protoss refuse to use these vehicles because they are both dangerous and frivolous, but they maintain a popularity with many of the younger generation.

The Protoss have the most advanced space fleet of the known species, but only a few of their powerful ships are used in battle.  Also, many of their ships are entirely powered by robotic brains, leaving Protoss citizens and soldiers free to do more important (or less dangerous) tasks.

Resource Cost:  2 RP per Scout.
Description:  For generations, Scouts have only been used as manned deep-space explorers and to keep a protective eye over species within the Protoss sphere.  But with the onslaught of the Zerg and Terrans, these powerful fighters are also serving as efficient combat tools.  Protoss Scouts actually have no physical controls, but are controlled directly by the pilot's thoughts.  The Scout pilot, wearing a special cybernetic helmet and flight suit, becomes one with his vessel.  The bond is often stronger than simply a master using a tool, as the robot brain becomes more accostumed to a particular pilot's brainwaves, it may develop an affinity for him that approaches actual sentiment.

Light Transport

  • Search: 50 / 2D
  • Focus: 5 / 4D
Weapons:  None.
Resource Cost: 1 RP per Shuttle.
Description:  Shuttles are robotic troop transports, pure and simple.  The robot brain is fairly intelligent and capable of creative and independent thought in order to solve problems.  The robot brain often develops a kind of maternal sense for the troops that it carries into battle.  Regardless, shuttles will risk their well-being to transport troops to and from battle sites.  Also, most Protoss shuttles do have the capacity to be piloted by a biological unit (some situations require a living pilot).

  • Scan: 25 /  2D
  • Search: 70 / 2D
  • Focus: 6 / 4D
  • Neutron Flare-Disruption Web:  Corsair pilots channel their Psi through neural emitters on the ship to project a white web of static at ground units (the attack will not work against air units, even in space).
    • Damage: 0D.  Rather, the units within the web lose all weapons guidance capability and suffer -8D to any ranged attacks attempted.  The effects last for 1D6 rounds per Web.  Targeted units may make a Difficult (20) Electronics check each round in order to clear the static.
    • Area of Effect:  the Web spreads over an area 50 m in diameter.
    • Skill: Starship Gunnery
    • Range: 10 / 100 / 300 / 600
  • Neutron Blasters:  Corsair pilots can also use the ship's emitters to fire charge bolts of psionic energy at other airborne vessels.  this weapons is of extremely limited effect, and Corsair pilots usually leave dogfights up to other units.

  • Passive:  30 / 2D
  • Scan: 65 /  3D
  • Search: 100 / 4D
  • Focus: 10 / 6D
Weapons & Special Systems: 
  • Cloaking Field (standard):  All Arbiters are designed to permit the pilots to psionically bend space-time around them, creating a veritable cloaking field that shrouds all friendly units within 200 meters of the Arbiter.  The Arbiter itself must remain visible however and cannot be cloaked by any power, even another Arbiter.
  • Stasis Warp:  Arbiter gunners may also channel their psychic power to generate a space-time distortion field around one target.  The warp actually locks the target in place for 1D6 rounds, during which time the unit cannot attack nor be attacked.  The Stasis Warp may not be used on more than one target at a time.  If a new target is fired upon, the former target is freed.
    • Range: Atmosphere:  10 / 100 / 200 / 300. Space: 2 / 5 / 7
  • Recall:  Some Arbiters can create small rips in space-time that serves as a small warpgate.  Friendly units may pass through this gate and will appear on the ground below the Arbiter. This teleportation power only extends over 1000 kilometers at most.  No more than 1 unit (equivalent to 10 Zealots or 5 Dragoons) may pass through the Recall gate per round.
Resource Cost: 4 RP per Arbiter.
Description:  The Arbiters carry the stern Judicators onto the battlefield.  Though they are slow ships, the Arbiters provide essential support to the Templar warriors.  The arrival of an Arbiter can only emphasize the importance of a battle to the Protoss Conclave.

Resource Cost: 6 RP per Carrier.
Description:  The mighty Carrier warships are often the last Protoss starship to be seen in battle, if only because of their great importance and expense.  But when they do come lumbering over the horizon, allies take heart and enemies do well to take pause.  While the Carriers themselves do not support weaponry, the tiny Interceptor fighters they house can devastate enemy fleets.

The Protoss make extensive use of robots to perform a wide variety of functions, including resource extraction, construction, and personnel transport.  Robot brains come in a equally large variety of intelligence and autonomy ratings, depending on the robot's programming and required function.  Finally, most robots have special equipment which allows them to take orders directly via mental transmissions from a Protoss controller.

Shields: 20.  May be increased by 10 for each Shields Upgrade.
Movement: 15 m hovering/flying. Flight ceiling = @ 10 meters.
Resource Cost: 1 RP produces 4 Probes.
    Probes are semi-autonomous robots that service that perform basic services for the Protoss.  They do everything from extract resources to clean house.  While they are usually relatively mindless, those that have been in service for a long time will develop personality quirks and have been shown to accumulate a surprising range of knowledge.
     Among its many tools, a Probe may manufacture and plant small beacons that permit the Protoss to teleport pre-fabricated buildings from their Homeworld to the site.  Thus, Probes rarely need to engage in actual construction of buildings.  They only need to plant the beacon and get out of the way.

Role:  Mobile Artillery Unit
Scale:  Heavy Vehicle (4D over Character).

    • Area of Effect: Does full damage to all targets with 3 m.  -2D damage for each addtional 5m from point of impact.
    • Control:  The Scarabs are self-guided and hit with 6D accuracy.  Scarabs that miss their targets will explode as near to the target as possible to cause at least some damage.
    • Range:  5 / 25 / 50 / 100
    • Ammunition:  10 Scarabs.  3 more Scarabs may be produced and carried for each Increase Capacity Upgrade.
Resource Cost:  2 RP per Reaver.
Description:  Reavers are large, buglike robots that provide heavy weapon support for Protoss troops.  The robot brain itself is relatively simple, responding to the direct orders of a battlefield general.  The Reaver may be set to a "search and destroy" mode, in which it will simply attack the nearest enemy units, but under this strategy, the Reaver will quickly run out of Scarabs.

Description:  Observers are the primary eyes and ears of the Protoss in the far reaches of space and, with more frequeny, on the battlefield.  Because of their micro-cloaking devices, Observers easily sneak behind enemy lines and gather intelligence.  Because of their primary mission, these little robots can be quite inventive, curious, and quirky.  Those in operation for long periods of time develop significant senses of self and autonomy.
