Changes, adjustments, and missed material from the Kalijor RPG Core Book.

———-

The base target number to resist anything is 12, unless otherwise stated. Many poisons/toxins, abilities, spells, and other effects will have a different target, but if they do, it will be specifically called out in their descriptions. If they say ‘standard’ then the number to beat is 12.

Similarly, in Kalijor, all pure spell casters (Mage, Cleric, Druid, Shaman, Geomancer) get a bonus of +1 to the target resist of their spells at levels 5, 10, 15, 20, and every three (3) levels thereafter. Hybrid classes (Templar, Ranger, Spell-Sword) receive a bonus of +1 to the target resist of their spells at levels 10, 20, and every five (5) levels thereafter.

In the future, all Psi-Line characters gain a bonus of +1 to the target resist of their abilities at levels 5, 10, 15, 20, and every three (3) levels thereafter.

This means that a 15th level Mage, or Psi-Line character can use the same abilities as a 1st level character, but their abilities are honed to the point that targets must roll a 15 or better to resist their effects, rather than the standard 12.

In the racial descriptions for Kalijor, the human is described as having 1D6x10+60 attribute pool points, but it should be the same 2D6x10+60 as Base-Line Humans in the future setting.

In the consumer and military pressure suits and hard armors section (page 237 in the retail version but may be a couple pages off from earlier versions due to formatting changes), we missed a few of the Physical Health and soak values during revisions. the finalized info is as follows:

Class 1 consumer pressure suit

This suit is a ‘soft’ suit that is designed for nothing more than protection against the frigid vacuum of space. Built-in air supply is good for 8 hours.

Physical Health: 50

Soak: 1

Prowl Penalty: None

Armor Class: Light Pressure Suit

Cost: 500 credits

 

Class 2 consumer pressure suit

This suit is designed for more industrial/work related activities. Intended for those who work outside habitable areas on the surfaces of planets and planetoids. Its surfaces are reinforced with some armored plates to protect against minor damage and tumbles although it is still considered to be a ‘soft’ armor. Built-in air supply is good for 8 hours.

Physical Health: 75

Soak: 3

Prowl Penalty: -5

Armor Class: Medium Pressure Suit

Cost: 850 credits

 

Class 3 consumer pressure suit

This suit is designed to be used while in open space for long periods of time. It is reinforced for protection against collision of micro-meteors and other space debris, which also affords it some minor protection against small arms fire. This suit is considered to be ‘hard’ armor and its built-in air supply is good for 10 hours. Additionally, this armor is equipped with as many as 25 tiny maneuvering jets that allow the wearer to make getting around in the vacuum of space much easier and more efficient. These jets are not designed for sustained travel, but rather for turning, adjusting attitude and making short trips between structures/ships (add +5 to the zero-g movement skill).

Physical Health: 100

Soak: 5

Prowl Penalty: -10

Armor Class: Heavy Pressure Suit

Cost: 1,500 credits

 

Class 1 military pressure suit

This suit is not only designed for use in an airless environment, but it has also been reinforced on all major surfaces with composite materials and plates that protect against a moderate amount of weapons fire. The built-in air supply is good for 10 hours.

Physical Health: 45

Soak: 5

Prowl Penalty: -5

Armor Class: Medium Pressure Suit

Cost: 2,500 credits

 

Class 2 military pressure suit

More or less just a beefed up version of the class 1 military suit, this system offers more protection against damage as well as an increase in air supply. Built-in air supply is good for 12 hours. Additionally, this armor is equipped with as many as 25 tiny maneuvering jets that allow the wearer to make getting around in the vacuum of space much easier and more efficient. These jets are not designed for sustained travel, but rather for turning, adjusting attitude and making short trips between structures/ships (add +5 to the zero-g movement skill).

Physical Health: 65

Soak: 6

Prowl Penalty: -10

Armor Class: Heavy Pressure Suit

Cost: 4,500

 

Class 3 military pressure suit

This suit affords its wearer the maximum amount of protection without actually getting them into a suit of powered or robot armor. Built-in air supply is good for 18 hours. Additionally, this armor is equipped with as many as 25 tiny maneuvering jets that allow the wearer to make getting around in the vacuum of space much easier and more efficient. These jets are not designed for sustained travel, but rather for turning, adjusting attitude and making short trips between structures/ships (add +5 to the zero-g movement skill).

Physical Health: 85

Soak: 7

Prowl Penalty: -15

Armor Class: Heavy Pressure Suit

Cost: 9,000 credits

 

Class A consumer hard armor

This armor is designed as an under-clothes body protection against minor small arms fire. It is only good for absorbing a few rounds and normally must be discarded after it takes fire, rather than being repaired. Because the armor only covers a portion of the body it’s ability to soak damage is reduced.

Physical Health: 40

Soak: 2

Prowl Penalty: None

Armor Class: Light Armor

Cost: 400 credits

 

Class B consumer hard armor

Simply a beefed up version of the Class A armor, this piece will still fit under normal clothing without looking terribly conspicuous.

Physical Health: 65

Soak: 3

Prowl Penalty: -5

Armor Class: Medium Armor

Cost: 1,200 credits

 

Class C consumer hard armor

This armor is designed to protect the wearer from a much more significant amount of weapons fire. It includes a helmet, shoulder, forearm, thigh, shin and groin protection. It is impossible to conceal this armor beneath any normal clothing although it could be mostly covered up by the use of a trench coat or cloak.

Physical Health: 100

Soak: 5

Prowl Penalty: -25

Armor Class: Heavy Armor

Cost: 5,000 credits

 

Class A military hard armor

This piece of armor is designed as a concealable vest for use in public, under-cover operations. It provides a minimum level of protection for its wearer but it is still better than the civilian version.

Physical Health: 50

Soak: 3

Prowl Penalty: None

Armor Class: Light Armor

Cost: 5,500 credits

 

Class B military hard armor

This armor comes in the form of a chest piece with shoulder, thigh, shin, forearm and groin protection and is designed for maximum flexibility and minimum encumbrance.

Physical Health: 85

Soak: 4

Prowl Penalty: None

Armor Class: Medium Armor

Cost: 7,500 credits

 

Class C military hard armor

This suit is a more robust, environmentally sealed suit that is good for use in airless environments should the need arise. Built-in air supply is good for 6 hours.

Physical Health: 100

Soak: 6

Prowl Penalty: -15

Armor Class: Medium Environmental Armor

Cost: 10,200 credits

 

Class D military hard armor

This is as tough as generic personal armor gets. This suit comes equipped with heavy reinforcing at all of the major joints, is environmentally sealed with a 10 hour air supply and provides the wearer with minor motor-assistance in order to compensate for the weight and bulk of the suit itself.

Physical Health: 200

Soak: 8

Prowl Penalty: -50

Armor Class: Heavy Environmental Armor

Cost: 50,000 credits
