Full Version: Speed ratings and control rigs
Dumpshock Forums > Discussion > Shadowrun
FuelDrop
It says that your control rig rating is added to your vehicle's speed when you jump in.
Does this really mean that a speed 3 (walk 20 run 40) vehicle in the hands of a high-end rigger becomes speed 6 (walk 160 run 320)? Or am I making a mistake (hardly my first tonight)?

You are correct, that's what the rules say.

Whether or not it should be that way is a topic brought up a few times.

I think it adds to the Speed limit (hee hee) for Vehicle Tests, but doesn't actually increase the speed of the vehicle. There's a quality that lets you speed up your vehicle, I think.

You can also get a similar boost to speed by painting it red, cuz red makes tings go fastez. biggrin.gif

And go-faster stripes.

Come to think of it, you can put go-faster stripes on adepts, too. Except that they'd actually work if you get the right kind.

True, but the big babies scream when we use the acid etch paints (makes it last longer).

Also useful for tats for your shapeshifter since normal inks tend to get absorbed and lost.

Cutter nanites also work pretty well, just be careful with their programming.

only really matters if you GM considers it an "attack" or not...

But Bull ruled that any action affecting the target or causing a roll constitutes an attack and I was possibly taking Pun Damage. nyahnyah.gif

Pun damage is sanity-affecting, luckily there's nothing like this in SR

Friends of mine did that once. Admittedly, it was Psion, not Shadowrun.

But they totally started Armageddon. One of them had (two sessions prior) left a note with the GM saying, "Epic use of Manipulation: if my friends destroy the universe, I want to be the first one back." Everyone else got stuck hitching a ride with someone who used an Epic use of The Way* to "be somewhere safe until the universe restarted."

*The Way is essentially traveling. At epic levels you become immune to travel...by which we mean you stop having to do it to get places. The epic use allows the character to go anywhere they desire. This can include "a universe entirely defined by the number 8."
