Items Stored in the ATRV
Large tool kit

Vehicle Diagnostic Computer
This is a hand-held style computer sensor that when connected to a vehicle, robot or power armor suit detects mechanical, electrical and computer problems. Not only will the Diagnostic Computer locate the source of the problem, it provides the user with a holographic schematic of the malfunctioning mechanism along with specifications
of the parts that need to be repaired or replaced and the common, recommended procedure to effect the repair. The Vehicle
Diagnostic Computer is a valuable tool that quickly identifies problems and greally speeds up repair time.
• Weight: 3 lbs.
• Accuracy: 92% for common Rifts Earth manufactured vehicles; however, accuracy drops to a mere 30% when dealing with alien or extra-dimensional vehicles.
• Bonus: +10% to appropriate Mechanical skills.

Universal E-Clip Recharger
A nuclear powered, portable generator approximately the size of a suitcase that weighs 15 lbs. There arc eight ports in the unit, each of which can recharge a standard E-Clip in about one hour. It also comes with adapters to enable the device to recharge unusual and alien E-Clips such as those used by Naruni Enterprises and the Kittani. Considering the number of high-tech devices that use E-Clips as a power source, everything from jet packs and Naruni force fields to stealth suits and energy weapons, this is a tremendously valuable piece of equipment. The Universal E-Clip Recharger has an energy life of 12 years and has a power output roughly equal to most suits of power armor.

Roughnecks: Team History

The following set of history is compiled together from memory, and talking to several members of the Roughnecks. It is not to be super exact, but provide the basics and details for future team members.

Formation wrote:Baker on a personal mission formed the core team within a MercTown Gang War fire. While sitting in the warrens the gangs of the area ended up in a turf war. One that would bring a small group of warriors together under one roof of the Armored APC of a lone Coalition Chef. In a quick skirmish and dealing with the Greenskins the group heads off to earn money for Mercenary work.

Morogot - The Innards wrote:Mission Objective: Rescue a Kidnapped Girl
Mission Pay: 1,000,000 Universal Credits
Status: Contract cancelled due to no-show of Roughnecks

The roughnecks were initially hired by Dr. Hera to rescue a kidnapped girl out west. While on route a dimensional portal sucked the roughnecks into the body of Morogot. A dimensional spanning being unaware of what was going on inside it's body.

The inhospitable atmosphere and corrosive nature of the beast, caused many trials and tribulations. The constant eerie blue glow on the inside of Morogot, was unsettling and caused mass discomfort. Weeks passed, while the crew worked tirelessly to survive, killing demons and monsters. The magic users unable to draw upon PPE from ley lines, were able to pull it from the blood/fluid of Morogot directly.

Eventually the Roughnecks were able to meet with other foreign travelers. Ones who had been stuck within Morogot for a lot longer, and had identified how to survive. The other group initially attacked, and the Roughnecks were able to capture them and their prisoner, Clay "Reaper" Torres. With the help of Reaper and his other dimensional power armor, they battled their way out of the hindgut of Morogot. In the process, losing Heinrich, Khan, and Ramien, not to mention their prisoners.

Odach - The Land of Plant Zombies wrote:Mission Objective: Survive & Get back to Rifts Earth

Status: Success - made it back to Earth

The surviving members of the Roughnecks ended up on another planet in a different dimension. One that had plant people instead of humans. A disease killed the majority of the population, but instead of truly killing them, turned the victims into Zombies.

The Roughnecks set forth to repair Cale's ride, the Chuck Wagon. While the vehicle underwent repairs, the group sent a small task force into the city to see if there were survivors; or at least something useable for the team. While in the city, the group was attacked by Zombies and were rescued by a shifter from Rifts Earth named Shalin who took the Roughnecks back to Earth with him.

Troubles in Calgary
Troubles in Calgary wrote:Mission Objective: Investigate the town of Medicine Hat and find out why they have stopped trading with Lethbridge.
Mission Pay: 5,000,000 credits
Status: Double-Cross. It was a trap to lay blame on the Roughnecks for the destruction of the town. A Demon horde killed the town of Medicine Hat, but the Roughnecks were able to defeat the horde, and clear their names.

The Roughnecks gathered back in town. Rearmed and picked up a few more recruits to go on a mission in the great white north. The Roughnecks being tasked to find out what happened in a town called Medicine Hat. It mysteriously stopped trading with the town of Lethbridge.

The Roughnecks quickly took to their new hover APC and found trouble right away. The group rescued a Mage that was captured by necromancers. Instead of demons that most of the Roughnecks have been fighting. These were high powered necromancers that also had elemental minions. This was the first time a successful use of the 'Dreaded Minmei Attack' worked and destroyed an air elemental.

The team continued their journey into the great white north, where they found Medicine Hat burning to the ground. The Roughnecks went out to help, but instead found death and carnage. The bodies of the villagers rose up from the ground, and started shambling all over the place. Due to the Roughnecks recent journey to Odach, some immediately opened fire. The 'Zombies' were not like the ones that the Roughnecks faced before, but were defeated rather quickly. What they did not know until afterwords, that they were being spied on by one of Grisabella's men, recording the massacre of the already dead villagers.

The Roughnecks moved to Bow Island to bring the news, when they found out that they were branded as murderers. With a quick series of negotiations, and a Demon Horde at the gates. The Roughnecks fought valiantly with the defenders of Bow Island and took down Grisabella and her forces. Not before some of the members of the Roughnecks nearly died on the battlefield. Logan lost both arms, much to the Dr. Cai Cardoc's delight. Several members of the Roughnecks had near death experiences, and ended up with post traumatic stress. Then there were the additional mysteries of where to go next, a land of pastel skinned giants with strange technology. A databurst transmission intended for someone in the area. Mystical objects of the Fallen Grisabella and her entourage that scream evil incarnate. Only time will tell with what the Roughnecks would do next.

The team needed more intelligence on what they were going up against, and in the process also needed to rearm before tackling another Mercenary team from MercTown.

While in Lazlo, Conner was able to destroy an evil artifact with the help of Lorelei Stark. She befriended the team, and agreed to help on the next mission.

Robotech Factory
Robotech Factory wrote:Mission Objective: Verify location of a secret facility, and neutralize opposing mercenary team (Explorers Inc).
Mission Pay: Unspecified - Salvage, was primary income.
Status: Success*

The Roughnecks proceeded to the facility that the other team was at. Quickly they made it into the facility, and realized that it was quite large. Reaper found the facility to be rather similar to technology he has seen before, but was not quite sure. As the team progressed they realized that it was definitely extraterrestrial, and upside down.

As they progressed further into the facility, they found giant robots defending the facility. The team was able to disable the robots, and progress when Reaper identified Inorganics in the mix. With all the clues at Reaper's fingertips, he identified the facility as part of a famed 'Robotech Factory Satellite'.

While inside the Robotech Factory the battle at the core was raging hard. The facility started to fold, and brought the Roughnecks and the target team Explorers Inc to another planet, Eylor.

*It's a technical success due to the fact the facility is no longer in Explorers Inc's hand. But it is not in the hands of the Roughnecks either. Alternate objective is technically a success, as it has taken Explorers Inc. off planet, and thus neutralized.

Eylor wrote:Mission Objective: Get the hell off Eylor
Mission Pay: Unspecified - Salvage, was primary income.
Status: Success

The Roughnecks and the members of Explorers Inc, decided on a plan of action. Through various communication attempts with the planet Eylor, and precognitive visions, the two teams decided that the best course of action was to move against the Dark Pyramid, vs. the Lit Pyramid to find what they need to get off the planet.

While formulating the plan, and exploring their immediate surroundings, the residents of the planet Eylor decided to investigate the two new parts of the Robotech Factory. The creatures that came to visit were the floating eyes of a Splugorth Slave Barge. After trying to capture, and eventually destroying the eye's both teams knew that company would be arriving soon.

Packing the teams up, they created a plan on using a modified "Protoculture Emulator" a design that Reaper brought back from his home dimension, placing these Emulators on the backs of Robots patched together within the Robotech Factory, they set them off to the "Lit Pyramid". The Invid that were occupying the other portion of the factory went after the protoculture, and the protoculture went to the Splugorth Minions. While this plan succeeded, some of the splugorth minions broke away and followed the two teams. The two teams set up an ambush, they fought valiantly, with no loss of life of their own. While defeating a splugorth slave barge, power lord, and conservator.

The Dark Pyramid was a menacing site. The magical protection on it was immense. The teams quickly decided that possibly an alternative approach would be needed. With some scouting they were able to find a hidden passage, a maintenance hatch on some remote guns. One of the members of Explorers Inc defeated the sentries that lead to a giant creature (Kreewarr Carapace Metztla) guarding the inner sanctum. Going through the roof, various team members were able to get by before it started to lunge and get ticked off at the new guests.

A battle raged, Cale was bitten into and the creature's head was blown off by Reaper and Conner. The fight was vicious and brutal, and the team fled down the tunnels behind the large but massively fast creature. Defeating a magical barrier, Logan disturbed a magical line protecting what laid beneath. Instead of freeing the planet Eylor from the Splugorth, the teams released llyncryth the Splugorth Alien Intelligence, and former ruler of Eylor. Once he was free, he quickly fled to a pocket dimension with both teams...

llyncryth the Former Ruler of Eylor whisked the two teams away to his private dimension. He was pleased that he was rescued by such, "Seemingly weak and pitiful mortals." llyncryth was interested in various aspects of the two groups. The fact there were practitioners of magic, psionics, and technology. He was pleased to see that some of the 'Old' races (Rahu-Men, Dwarves, and Elves) had survived and were still strong. As a reward to both teams, he offered to send them back home to Rifts Earth, but in turn wanted to see some sort of technological device that he was unfamiliar with. Several members provided various items (Wilks Laser Sword, Flashlight, Bio-Spleen, Cigarette Lighter, and a Holo-Pendant).

Wakiza was exceptionally concerned about the untold millions, if not billions, that would suffer and die due to the release of such an evil and powerful creature. He considered attacking it immediately, but the creature mentioned his nemesis, Splyncryth, who Wak recognized as the ruler of Atlantis and the largest slaver on Earth. At that moment he made a life altering decision and decided to work with this being of pure evil in order to rid the world of Splyncryth. Therefore, Wak struck a bargain with it, so Rifts Earth could potentially be free from Alien domination later. Secretly he offered his service to the Splugorth, if only to remove Splynncryth from Rifts Earth.

Re: Roughnecks: TGM's Specific Rules

Postby Augur » Sat Jul 21, 2012 2:54 pm

TGM's Special Rules

Official Airlock Policy:
• No more than four at a time through the airlock, it's just not realistic.
• Airlock takes three actions to cycle, ergo if Cale starts the cycle on action 1 no one can access the airlock on actions 2 and 3.

Official Winged Flight Policy:
• Launching and Landing cost 1 action, that's it.
• Acceleration is done via common sense and costs no additional actions.

Official Servo-Rig Donning Policy:
• Without assistance = 1D4+1 melees
• With 1 person helping = 1 full melee round
• With 2 people helping = 1D4 melee actions
• Any further assistance will only cause confusion and delay matters.

Roughnecks: William Summers' Specific Gear

Postby William Summers » Thu Sep 06, 2012 3:08 pm

Items Stored in the Warehouse at Roughnecks HQ
Draining Blade
M.D.C.: 150
Damage: 4D6 M.D.
Features: Every time the target is hit, they must save vs magic or suffer a Life Drain, as per the 7th level spell. A failed save means the victim loses half his hit points and S.D.C., plus speed is reduced by half, the character loses one melee attack, and suffers -10% on skill performance. This attack will affect targets in body armor or power armor, but not anything bigger. M.D. creatures only suffer the 4D6 M.D. The weakness will last for 10 melee rounds, after which the victim begins to regain their hit points and S.D.C. as is normal for their healing ability. The weapon itself regenerates 10 M.D.C. per day if damaged.

Items Stored in the Warehouse at Roughnecks HQ

Murdoc's Custom Roadrunner
Model Type: PA-002G
Class: All-Terrain Power Armor
Crew: One
M.D.C. by Location:
Thruster Jump Pack (Back): 60
Arms: 40 each
Legs: 80 each.
*Head: 70
**Main Body: 130
N-F20A Heavy Force Field: 110
Running: Quadruple the usual speed of the wearer. For most people, that is in the range of Spd 35-50 or 24 mph (38.4 km) to 35 mph (56 km), and obviously faster for those with a Spd attribute of 20 or higher. The act of running does tire its operator, but only at 10% of the usual fatigue rate.
Leaping: The robot legs can add up to 13 feet high and 20 feet across to the users normal jumping capabilities and increase height and distance by 50% with a fast, running start. A jet thruster-assisted leap adds up to 110 feet high and 210 feet to the usual jumping abilities.
Flying: Not possible. Hovering off the ground is possible, but only for 60 seconds before getting wobbly and shutting off. However, it can be used to slow the descent of falls and land on one' s feet.
Underwater Capabilities: Swimming: The thrusters provide good mobility and control underwater and a speed of 28 mph; 40 mph on the surface of the water. The Roadrunner can also walk along the bottom of the sea or lake bed at 40% of its normal walking/running speed. Maximum Ocean Depth: 1 ,800'
Statistical Data:
Height: 7 feet (2. 1 m)
Width: 3 feet (0.9 m)
Length: 2.8 feet (0.85 m)
Weight: 76 lbs, including built-in thruster pack
Physical Strength: +12 user's current PS (Robot P.S)
Cargo: None. Only what the person can carry
Power System: Nuclear; average energy life is 10 years.
Cost: Custom Job
Mobility: Uncanny, +10% to physical skills (not prowl)
Power Armor Features: Standard properties for Full Environmental Body Armor; see the Rifts® Ultimate Edition rule book, page 267
Weapon Systems:
1) Silver Forearm Vibro-Blades (2): 3d6 MD, +1 to strike, +2 to parry
2) E-Clip Port/Adapter (unlimited payload for handheld weapons)
Hand to Hand Combat: Rather than use a weapon, the pilot can engage in Mega-Damage combat.
Bonuses: The body armor's augmentation, agility and jump capability give the pilot the following: +1 attack, +1 to strike, + 2 on initiative, +2 to parry, +4 to automatic dodge (the act of dodging does not use up a melee attack), +6 to roll with impact, 01-80% chance of landing on his feet (no damage) from a fall at heights as great as 1,600 feet and grants the user the ability to run along narrow ledges and trails as thin as five inches (12.7 cm) wide at full speed.
