Wields technology with precision

Wields technology with precision

The focus wields technology with precision is based on the focus wields power with precision (NCR 74). The focus is adapted as a house rule to better fit the ruins of old campaign setting.

Wields technology with precision:
Not only are you blessed with a great command of the numenera, but you are also trained to exploit mechanical feats in ways that elevate you above other tinkerers. Some people believe that those who perform mechanical feats are born with the ability, but you know that skill and intelligence play important roles. The ancients created the numenera through knowledge, discovery, and intellect, and to use it properly, you must follow the same path. You probably wear spectacles and dapper outfits, carrying extra books, notebooks, and pens so you can continually focus on your studies and experiments. Tinkerers usually adopt this focus.

Connection:
Choose one of the following:

  • Pick one other PC. You have followed this character for a while because you desire something the character has. It could be a cypher or a piece of information.
  • Pick one other PC. You are business partners. The character finds numenera, you figure them out and sell them.
  • Pick one other PC. You’ve placed an immutable, one-time ward on the character. The ward renders the character immune to the mechanical feats you perform, unless the character wants to be affected.
  • Pick one other PC. You are friends with this character. The character does not trust numenera unless they are examined by you first.

Additional equipment:
You have an additional book on the subject of the numenera.

Minor effect suggestion:
The mechanical feat overwhelms and dazzles the target for one round, during which time the difficulty of all tasks it performs is modified by one step to its detriment.

Major effect suggestion:
The mechanical feat terrifies the target, who uses its next two turns to flee.

Tier 1:
Genius:
Your intellect pool increases by 5 points. Enabler.

Tier 2:
Training and precision:
You are trained in all mechanical feats. As a result, you reduce the difficulty of any task involved in the use of a feat by one step. Enabler.

Tier 3:
Enhanced mechanical feats:
Your mechanical feats that have durations last twice as long. Your feats that have short ranges reach to long range instead. Your feats that inflict damage deal 1 additional point of damage. Enabler.

Tier 4:
Greater repertoire:
You can learn one additional mechanical feat of fourth tier or lower. Enabler.

Tier 5:
Greater training:
You are specialized in all mechanical feats. As a result, you reduce the difficulty of any task involved in the use of a feat by two steps. Enabler.

Tier 6:
Super genius:
Your intellect pool increases by 5, and your intellect edge increases by 1. Enabler.
