[SR] Techno-Wizardry Edges

#1 Postby Freemage » Thu Apr 13, 2017 9:40 am

Okay, so I know that Trait bonuses (flat and die-type) only apply when using the device in question. Is the same true for Edges?

For instance, an enchanted NG-S2 pack that gives the Brawny Edge (thereby increasing the bearer's encumbrance)--when the pack is charged, does the user also get the +1 Toughness from Brawny?

Typically the abilities of a TW device are tied specifically to use of the device. That's kind of why characters can "Add an Edge to device" as opposed to make a device which provides an Edge. A pack with Brawny would probably provide the +1 Toughness if hit in the location covered by the pack. It might be a more preferable option to add the Edge to a set of armor or coveralls with multiple pockets or attachment points so it helps with encumbrance and protection.

Or even adjust the effect for "trappings." If the pack doesn't provide protection, then perhaps it works even better for carrying items increasing Load Limit to x10 instead of x8.

Hope that helps.
