You are an organic machine hybrid that is very strong but has a battery that can malfunction. This role is a tank, taking more damage than it gives but still dishing it out.

Moves:

Starting move:

  • Bend Bars, Lift Gate : When you use pure strength to destroy an inanimate obstacle, roll+STR. On a 10+, choose three. On a 7-9, choose two:
    • It doesn’t make an inordinate amount of noise.
    • It doesn’t take a very long time.
    • Nothing you value is damaged.
    • You can fix the thing again without a lot of effort.
  • Mother of Invention: When you build a machine, the GM will name one requirement for each function the machine will perform:
    • It will take a long time.
    • You need help or someone else’s expertise
    • You need materials above and beyond what you have now.
    • You need to build something else first.
    • You need to take something else apart to build it.
  • (MoI) Once you meet the requirements, roll+INT. On a hit, it works like you want it to, as far as the materials it is made out of can handle, but on a 7-9, there is also a flaw in your design. The GM will tell you what. On a miss, it doesn’t work the way you want it to.
  • Radioactive Core: You don’t need to eat or drink. If a move tells you to mark off a ration just ignore it.

Advanced Moves:

When you gain a level from 2-5, you may choose from these moves:

  • Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken: When you prepare yourself to endure some hardship without fighting back, roll+CON. On a hit, you can either take half damage or you can completely ignore one other ill effect. On a 10+, you also defeat, expose, or frustrate your oppressor with your stubbornness.
  • Mechanical Aptitude: You may study machines and mechanisms as if the were people. When you do, you may discern realities with INT instead of WIS
  • Servo Hold: When you get your hands on someone, they become trapped and your next attack against them deals +1d4 damage
  • Absorb Energy attacks and heal: When you defend against an energy attack you heal for half its damage

When you gain a level from 6-10, you may choose from these moves as well as the level 2-5 moves:

  • Mechanical Genius (requires Mechanical Aptitude): You may study machines and mechanisms as if they were people. When you do , you may discern realities with INT instead of WIS. On a 12+, you may also ask three question you like, not limited to the list.
  • Impervious Defender: When you defend, you always get +1 hold, even on a miss. On a 12+, instead of getting hold the nearest attacking creature is stymied giving you a clear advantage, the GM will describe it.
  • Heist: When you take time to make a plan to steal something, name the thing you want to steal and ask the GM these question. When acting on the answers you and your allies take +1 forward.
    • What’s the most powerful defense?
    • Who else wants it?
    • Who will come after it?
    • Who will notice it’s missing?
  • Hands Like a Vise (replaces Servo Hold): When you get your hands on someone, they become trapped and your next attack against them deals +1d8 damage

Red text moves are moves that are either completely unique or inspired by other moves but not simply a translation
