Quick guidelines for Operator work
1.) Only the GM knows just what modifiers are in place (+5%, -25%, etc.)
2.) The PC Operator only knows the roleplaying factors of which he's aware (not at his shop, not working with full tool set, working under pressure, etc.)
3.) The Operator will receive a number of attempts per day equal to his Experience Level.

Indicates that an item has been destroyed due to gross incompetence; impossible to salvage.
Indicates that an item has been disabled/broken due to some mistakes; it's repairable though.
Indicates that an item has not been successfully altered, no harm done though.
Indicates that an item has been successfully altered to the desired effect.
Indicates that an item has been miraculously altered beyond the expected results.
Players are responsible for editing their own stats- do that yourself and check back here periodically for updates.

Players will be prompted to PM rolls to cover a specific time-frame periodically which the GM will use to determine the results of the character's labors.

Quick Guidelines for TW device creation
1.) Only the GM knows just what modifiers are in place (+5%, -25%, etc.)
2.) The PC Techno-Wizard only knows the roleplaying factors of which he's aware (not at his shop, not working with full tool set, working under pressure, etc.)
3.) The Techno-Wizard will receive a number of attempts per day equal to his Experience Level.
4.) Must Supply Form of Device, Intended Functions of the Device, Level of device (no higher than Level of the Techno-Wizard), whether it is a Ley Line Device or not, and Intended P.P.E. storage if any.

The GM will then PM the following to you.
1.) Number of spell chains and spells needed.
2.) Required Gems.
3.) Base P.P.E. Construction Cost.
4.) Activation Cost.
5.) Construction Time.
6.) Extra Components if any.
7.) List of skill rolls needed in addition to Techno-Wizard Construction Skill.

Building of the device should then be role-played.

Indicates that, due to gross incompetence, the spells misfired and destroyed all components used.
Indicates that device does something, though maybe not what was intended.
Indicates that the device was not successfully created, something went wrong procedurally, no harm done aside from wasted P.P.E.
Indicates that the device has the intended function, though it may have quirks.
Indicates that the device works exactly as planned, perhaps even better.
Neither the GM nor the Worker/s will be altering your stats, do that yourself and check back here periodically for updates.

Guidelines for assessing attempts per day

Assistant types & Limitations on type of work
Operators and other tinkerers receive a number of attempts per day equal to their experience level.

Instructions for Tinkerers
Post all of the following as a reply to this thread:

Permissions for working on another PC's gear (if applicable)
A sentence or two about your character's sense of craftsmanship
Your current priorities for building or modifying stuff (I will monitor and move to completed tasks as the game progresses)
If you are employing an assistant, post so here and I will make a determination on how many additional attempts per day they provide

Instructions for Study
In your replies:

Spell books on-hand (or other materials if learning a skill or somesuch)
Spells being actively studied, with the time each one will take based on the relevant house rule, in order of priority
Date started, and expected date of completion (or more precisely, when you start studying relative to the group's adventure(s), since PW doesn't have any kind of universal calendar)
I will monitor and move to completed spells/skills as the game progresses

Permissions for working on another PC's gear (if applicable)

Just my own so far.

A sentence or two about your character's sense of craftsmanship:

Kesslan prides himself in a neat and tidy job, he likes nice crisp clean lines and all that, though in the end what really matters are two things; reliability, and functionality.

Your current priorities for building or modifying stuff:

Kesslan would like to see if it's possible for him to craft the custom ammunition for the following weapon:

The Light Pistol
Revolver of unknown manufacture
• Range: 500'
• Damage: 4D6+6 M.D. per shot.
• Rate of Fire: Single shots only.
• Payload: 6 shots (the rounds are completely custom made rounds. They look a bit like Triax rounds, though more advanced
• Modifiers: When both pistols are used simultaneously at the same target the shooter get a +1 to strike

As well as work with the robots to build E-clips for the Dark Pistol.

Applicable Skills:
Basic:
Basic Mechanics
Basic Electronics
Trap Construction

Skilled:
Field Armourer & Munitions Expert
Locksmith
Demolitions
Demolitions: Disposal

If you are employing an assistant, post so here and I will make a determination on how many additional attempts per day they provide.


Kesslan will utilize the two utility robots recently purchased for the group. They have the following Applicable Skills:
Electrical Engineer 80%
Mechanical Engineer 80%
Weapons Engineer 65%
Basic Electronics 90%
Basic Mechanics 90%
Electricity Generation 80%

Available tools and Equipment:
The full compliment of tools and facilities aboard the DSM

Based on PM from DSM:
Dime Store Magic wrote:My thoughts are that it would probably take a day or two to create the necessary molds and preparation materials for a few hundred rounds. Since it's explosive material, probably a few hours to create the first two or three rounds to make sure quality control was in place, then probably about 10 minutes a round for Kesslan, the robots could probably do 5 minutes a round.

The eclips probably a few days to map out the template, and casing, and 6 to 8 hours per eclip to put it together and test functionality.

DSM



Based on the above the Goal would be to create:
12 Spare Custom E-Clips
At least 200 rounds for the light pistol

Kesslan should be able to trace out the basics of the desired E-clip shell using basic mechanics. He could also likely work out some of the basics of the e-clips using basic electronics. Field Armourer & Munitions expert may also play a part. The two utility robots would then have to take it from there as to designing the actual interior components.
Template Design for E-Clips
(Level 10 skill) Basic Mechanics (89%): 1d100 = 64
(Level 8 skill) Field Armourer & Munitions Expert (99%): 1d100 = 22
(Level 2 skill) Basic Electronics (64%): 1d100 = 28

Rolls for Robots:
Electrical Engineer 80% 1d100 = 36 1d100 = 15
Mechanical Engineer 80% 1d100 = 6 1d100 = 57
Weapons Engineer 65% 1d100 = 99 1d100 = 14
Basic Electronics 90% 1d100 = 31 1d100 = 63
Basic Mechanics 90% 1d100 = 47 1d100 = 32
Electricity Generation 80% 1d100 = 42 1d100 = 96

I think that should at least take care of getting the necessary template created and figured out?

Now for the creation of the template and molds for the light pistol ammo:
(Level 10 skill) Basic Mechanics (89%): 1d100 = 47
(Level 8 skill) Field Armourer & Munitions Expert (99%): 1d100 = 45
(Level 6 Skill) Demolitions (92%): 1d100 = 32
(Level 6 Skill) Demolitions: Disposal (92%): 1d100 = 85

Rolls for Robots:
Robot 1:
Mechanical Engineer 80% 1d100 = 80
Weapons Engineer 65% 1d100 = 39
Basic Mechanics 90% 1d100 = 57
Robot 2:
Mechanical Engineer 80% 1d100 = 80
Weapons Engineer 65% 1d100 = 64
Basic Mechanics 90% 1d100 = 28

I think that should be good enough to figure out a way to replicate the rounds and create a template to work from?

Kesslan and the robots careful scan the e-clip of the dark pistol in an attempt to map out it's internal circuitry and then attempt to the casing to visually inspect and catalog the internal components. Per RUE p 308 on Electrical Engineering, there is a -30% penalty on working on alien or extremely unfamiliar technology. The same is true for Weapons Engineer. Applying a straight -30% penalty to all roles.

(Level 10 skill) Basic Mechanics (89%): 1d100 = 64. Pass
(Level 8 skill) Field Armourer & Munitions Expert (99%): 1d100 = 22. Pass
(Level 2 skill) Basic Electronics (64%): 1d100 = 28. Pass
Rolls for Robots:
Electrical Engineer 80% 1d100 = 36. [Make removable] 1d100 = 15. Pass and Pass
Mechanical Engineer 80% 1d100 = 6. [Make removable] 1d100 = 57. Pass and Fail
Weapons Engineer 65% 1d100 = 99. [Make removable] 1d100 = 14. Fail and Pass
Basic Electronics 90% 1d100 = 31. [Make removable] 1d100 = 63. Pass and Fail
Basic Mechanics 90% 1d100 = 47. [Make removable] 1d100 = 32. Pass and Pass
Electricity Generation 80% 1d100 = 42. [Make removable] 1d100 = 96. Pass and Fail


With just a few minor set backs through the evening, by the time Kesslan decides to call it quits, he and the robots believe they have successfully mapped all of the electronics. The next morning Kesslan and the robots begin construction of the micro components of the e-clips. The robots estimate that the first set of components will take 10 hours to create.

Please post 3 sets of rolls, with a 30% penalty. Two out of three success are required for this first eclip. If not successful (for the two out of three), each additional set of rolls adds two hours.

Roll: Electrical Engineering, Weapons Engineering, and Electrical Generation.

Once the first eclip is successful, Kesslan will want to simulate the discharge of the weapon. Roll Field Armor and Munitions Expert 2 out 3 times (with the 30% penalty) to make any final tweaks to the process. Each failure adds 1 hour.

From that point forward, one successful set of rolls as above per eclip per 6 hours (and the creation of 1 eclip). Failure will require another set of rolls and 2 more hours. Good Luck!

What are your intentions?

Final Breakdown:

Estimated E-Clips Created: 12
Total Build Time: 300hrs

Total Hours Spent Tweeking by Kesslan: Approximately 6hrs

Total Hours Spent Building by Robots: Approximately 294hrs/2 = 147hrs each

Approximate days to complete all 12 e-clips:
If Both Robots only work 8hrs: 18.378 days
If Both Robots work 12hrs: 12.25 days

NOTE: Robots can actually run 72hrs on electric batteries before recharging but I'm assuming they would have other duties to attend to at some point, and of course they would need to recharge now and then.

EDIT: Oh, looks like I added 6hrs for every failed set instead of 2. So Actual build time is much shorter:

Revised Build time:
1st E-Clip: 18hrs
11 E-Clips: 66hrs (base) + 72hrs (Failures)
Tweeking Time: 6hrs (Done by Kesslan)
Total Build Time: 162hrs/2 = 81hrs (Done by 2 Robots)
8hr Days: 10.125
12hr Days: 6.75

Until actually pulled for additional other duties (while not in space), the robots will have 12 hours of available time each day to assist Kesslan.

By the end of this GM post (http://www.explorersunlimited.com/eu/viewtopic.php?f=684&t=15023&start=50#p315253), the 1st E-Clip is complete and functional. By the time of the formal dinner with Thraxus, 6 more E-Clips will have been successfully constructed: 138 hours/ 11 E-Clips = 12.54 hours/E-Clip (Let's call it 12 hours for convenience) ~ so 1 E-Clip per work period. 2 robots working for 3 days = 6 work periods.

Zem is on track to complete learning the spell by the time of the dinner; but it is taking a bit longer per day of study about 12 hours per day. Base literacy is 30%; per RUE p 305, a failed roll is that the book is not understood and the character can try again at a new level. Since this is a non-pressure situation and there are plenty of people who are literate that Zem could ask what a word means and no spell learning rules that say to use literacy skill rolls, I am just going to go with it taking longer for this spell (reserving the right to change my mind for future spell learning by book).

Don't forget to update your character sheet with improved IQ rolls and add your EP purchased literacy skill, it's been updated on the Explorer point ledger.

Mr. Sorrenson’s Harness of Awesome Upgrade

Current item:

Mr. Sorrenson’s Harness of Awesome V 1.0
• PPE Cost: 8 P.P.E. per feature.
• Effects: When Sustain feature is activated, the wearer is affected by the Sustain spell for 24 hours.
When the Magical Adrenal-Rush feature is activated wearers P.S. becomes Supernatural, +2 attacks per melee, +50% speed, Wearers S.D.C. is tripled, Wearer receives the following combat bonuses: +3 to Initiative, +1 to Strike, +1 to Dodge, +1 on all Saving throws. The wearer becomes impervious to drugs, mind control, possession, illusions, pain, and horror factor. Duration: 4 Melee Rounds per activation.
• Negative Effects: After Magical Adrenal-Rush feature is used the user receives the following penalties: Speed, Attacks per melee, Skills, and combat bonuses are reduced by half (Round up) for 1D4 minutes.
•Additional Negative Effect: If Magical Adrenal-Rush feature is used more than four times per twenty-four hour period, the wearer will immediately (after the duration of the fifth use) fall into a coma like sleep for sixteen hours due to hormonal strain.

Additional feature:
Device level: 8
Spells: Energy sphere, adrenal, 800 extra PPE
965 total PPE
Add up to 200 carats of the primary, 50 of the secondary
Add 100 carats worth of diamonds for PPE storage

Base PPE cost: 965*80 = 77,200 / 300 = 258
Construction time: 258*8/2 (since adding a feature to existing tech, but have the requisite skills) = 64 hours, or about eight normal work days without assistance or any other extraordinary measures. Sorrenson will ask Maris for her TW assistance to build this item, so that should reduce the time required somewhat.
Construction Cost: 258*10 = 2580. 2580*8= 20,640.
+ Gems
Quartz ruby 100 at 300 per carat = 30,000
Pearls (black) 50 at 6000 per carat = 300,000
diamonds 100 at 15,000 per carat = 1,500,000
Total cost = 1,850,640 credits. I'm pretty sure this is more than Sorrenson has on his character sheet, but I din't think the GR cash reward for killing Halthag has been applied yet.

Final stated out item:

Mr. Sorrenson’s Harness of Awesome V 2.0
• PPE Cost: 8 P.P.E. per feature. Accessing the PPE in storage has an activation cost of 22 PPE.
• Effects: When Sustain feature is activated, the wearer is affected by the Sustain spell for 24 hours.
When the Magical Adrenal-Rush feature is activated wearers P.S. becomes Supernatural, +2 attacks per melee, +50% speed, Wearers S.D.C. is tripled, Wearer receives the following combat bonuses: +3 to Initiative, +1 to Strike, +1 to Dodge, +1 on all Saving throws. The wearer becomes impervious to drugs, mind control, possession, illusions, pain, and horror factor. Duration: 4 Melee Rounds per activation.
• Energy sphere stores up to 800 extra PPE for up to 16 days
• Limitations to the Energy Sphere feature:
    • Accessing the PPE in storage has an activation cost of 22 PPE.
    • While it starts fully charged with 800 PPE it can only be recharged by being placed on a ley line or nexus- automatically refills at 20 PPE per hour.
    • Harness glows with pretty magical energy while charged
• Negative Effects: After Magical Adrenal-Rush feature is used the user receives the following penalties: Speed, Attacks per melee, Skills, and combat bonuses are reduced by half (Round up) for 1D4 minutes.
•Additional Negative Effect: If Magical Adrenal-Rush feature is used more than four times per twenty-four hour period, the wearer will immediately (after the duration of the fifth use) fall into a coma like sleep for sixteen hours due to hormonal strain.

Skill Rolls:
Techno-Wizardry Construction 1d100 = 94 / 95% Pass

A couple of initial comments.

1. Sorrenson will need to find the Energy Sphere spell.
2. In the construction rules, function follows form. "It is better to pick a form and components that complement the functions that it is expected to perform. There will always be some sort of addition to the device that symbolizes the added mystic power." What does it look like? Just slapping hundreds of carats on to the existing device isn't enough. Typically the higher the level spell, the more grandiose the form must be. Annihilate for example couldn't be in a pistol, it would be a cannon. This is Phase World so while the form wouldn't have to be the battery pack of a Tesla, it'd still have to be conspicuous.

I get the harness is the form for Magical Adrenal Rush, but what is the form for Sustain and now Energy Sphere?

3. Energy Sphere by default doesn't come fully charged, the caster has 10 minutes to charge it, whether it's from personal PPE or from a ley line/nexus. Where is the extra energy coming from to fill the tank?

That’s the thing. Diamonds aren’t necessary for Energy Sphere. And Energy Sphere isn’t needed for diamonds to store PPE. In fact they are inefficient as they restrict the users ability to pull the PPE from them to 10 or 20 PPE per round.

Looking back, my guess is that the plan is to push a fully charged PPE sphere into the device. PPE storage has a -1% penalty per point of PPE storage. That’s -800%

I'm reading between the lines here, but my initial inclination is that PPE storage via a spell such as energy sphere is functionally different than simply tacking on additional storage to a more conventional TW device. Otherwise, these are massive restrictions for TW wanting to use the spell that don't apply to any other practitioner of magic. So, in this case I feel semi-comfortable ruling that the above restrictions don't apply to PPE stored as part of a spell like e-sphere or talisman. What do you think?

Sorrenson- something else I missed during my initial reading is that using a spell the TW doesn't know boosts the base PPE by 50%. I think we should do that- keeping everything else the same that bumps the construction time to 12 days, which I feel OK with.

Sorrenson and I already discussed his other two points, and he will chime in here with his thoughts. I'd like the three of us to be on the same page before proceeding with the construction.

We know the spell itself can be given to another when created, and we both have characters that create extra sphere's and store them away, so I don't see a problem with the device being used by others. Since it's a device and not the spell, I would probably just say the user must be touching it otherwise anyone could draw on it's energy. Or we could add the spell Attune Object to Owner as a security feature that is activated by the person holding it when it's charging. My point is that using diamonds to store the energy is unnecessary as the spell holds it already and the cost to have significant on-board PPE using diamonds has a huge creation penalty.

If I were building the device (so inspiration):

Prototype Mana Containment Device wrote:Max P.P.E.: 800
Max Duration: 16 days
M.D.C.: 50 (500 when charged)
Description: A large tesla sphere in a wire frame cage. Various different style connector ports are on the device. The inside of the sphere has an intricate lattice of ruby quartz. The top of the device has a single large green emerald, while the conducting rod in the middle has a single diamond. The sphere radiates a warm red glow with flashes of white when a spark of energy leaps from the center post to one of the ruby quartz gems on the wall of the sphere.

This magical battery automatically charges at the rate of 40 P.P.E. per minute when on a ley line or nexus (rate doesn't increase at a nexus). The prototype battery loses 50 P.P.E. per day. The device while it obviously crackles with visible energy when charged, does not radiate any magic at all.


Device Level 8

1. Form: Tesla Sphere

2. Function: Store a massive quantity of P.P.E. but not necessarily be recognizable as magic when charged.

3. Spell Chains: 1

Primary:
Energy Sphere (120)


Secondary:
Mystic Invisibility (25) - to prevent others from sensing it when charged.
Invulnerability (25) - To strengthen the device's shell to hold the massive quantity of PPE energy.


4. Required Gems:

Energy Sphere: Ruby Quartz - Base 4 carats for Device Level 8 (300 credits/carat). Extra Gems 300 carats (this infinite # of extra gems is totally broken)
Invulnerability: 1 carat Diamond (15,000 carat)
Mystic Invisibility 1 carat Green Emerald (16,000) - Guessing the gem since spell isn't in list. Used emerald because that's what the regular invisibility spells use.

5. Base P.P.E. Cost: Sum (All Spell P.P.E.) x Device Level x 10 / # of carats for Primary Spell

version A: If all spells known: 170 x 8 x 10 / 300 = 46

version B: None of the spells known: 68

6. Activation Cost:
Ley Line Powered: PPE Construction Costs x 1.5
version A: 69 P.P.E.
version B: 102 P.P.E.

7. Calculate Construction Time: (PPE Construction Cost/10)*Device Level
version A: 55 hours
version B: 82 hours

8. Construction Cost: PPE Construction Cost x 10 x Device Level + Cost of All Gems
version A: 5520 + 304 carats of Ruby Quartz x 300 credits + 1 carat of Diamond x 15000 credits + 1 carat Green Emerald x 16000 + Mage to cast the 3 spells (Energy Sphere costs 600K, Mystic Invisibility 120K, Invulnerability 120K to learn before markup. The mage(s) most likely will have to cast the spells multiple times, but isn't actively teaching it, so maybe 1/3 of cost: 280K;

version B:
version A: 8160 + 304 carats of Ruby Quartz x 300 credits + 1 carat of Diamond x 15000 credits + 1 carat Green Emerald x 16000 + Mage to cast the 3 spells (Energy Sphere costs 600K, Mystic Invisibility 120K, Invulnerability 120K to learn before markup. The mage(s) most likely will have to cast the spells multiple times, but isn't actively teaching it, so maybe 1/3 of cost: 280K;
Total Cost:
Version A: 407,720 credits

Version B: 410,360 credits


Prototype Schematics -20%
No Schematics -80%
Unknown Common Primary Spell : -20%
Unknown Common Secondary Spell: -15%
Unknown Common Secondary Spell: -15%

Techno-wizard Assistant: +1% per 10% of TW assistant skill

Role play wise - time should be spent coming up with the schematic, per RUE it's 3 hours per spell level, so 81 hours.

Base build roll will have significant penalties. EP of course can be spent, but this is where we end up with the GM saying ;roll your skills a thousand times' or some other nonsensical number.

Also since it's a prototype, there should be something quirky about the device no matter what level of success.

Postby Sorrenson » Mon Jan 07, 2019 2:34 am

Okay, so this will probably be a wall of text – sorry about that in advance.

I’d like to start by pointing out that since Sorrenson has been on the site since 2012 (with a year / 18-month break around 2015 or so), he’s made a grand total of 3 TW items. I point this out for a few reasons.

1 – I don’t have a lot of familiarity with the TW creation rules in RUE. I look back on the notes I have on the items I’ve created previously, and they don’t make a whole lot of sense when comparing to the rules in RUE.
2. - The nature of pbp and the lack of IC downtime between missions don’t allow for a lot of time to be spent in the workshop making stuff. This is a good thing, adventuring is fun. However, it does mean that the whole ‘Create TW device’ aspect of a TW is somewhat neglected.

I’d also like to point out that I think the TW creation rules are a bit shit / deeply flawed. Having said that, I don’t care enough about it to argue about them, or to come up with a well-thought-out set of alternatives. I post on EU for fun, getting anywhere above ankle deep in rpg rules discussion over the internet is not fun.

For this device, I’d like it to do the following:
Contain an energy sphere that Sorrenson can use to access PPE while in and out of the Drudge. That’s it. I just want it to work like a normal Energy Sphere, that is built into a TW device so Sorrenson doesn’t have to eat the 50% penalty for not using it in a device.

The reason why I would like this is that, in the very long term, I would like to add more TW goodies to the Drudge. These goodies could end up being very very PPE thirsty. This PPE source is the foundation, without power these goodies aren’t much fun. To avoid the creation penalty for each and every TW device that stores its own PPE, I intend this Energy Sphere to be the power source for all of them. This way the PPE is there to be used and, in theory, each TW add on will be easier / quicker to build.

I’ve had this idea for a very long time just hanging out in my head stewing in its own juices, and I’ve gotten really attached to a glowing juicer harness. That’s why I chose the Juicer Harness form. Also, it would be readily accessible in and out of the PA.

What I propose is the following:

• Sorrenson buys some PPE storing rings / necklaces for use now. This thing is going to take a long time to build IC. I’m cool with that. One day DL or DSM will say ‘Okay it’s done now, you can use it.’ For now, I’d just like to get the device sorted to all of our satisfaction.
• Sorrenson buys a grimoire/scroll of Energy Sphere and learns it. I know this makes the process longer and I don’t mind. What I do object to is eating penalties to TW device creation (for not knowing the spell) that mean I’d have to spend EP to make it. One should not need to spend EP to facilitate a core role of one’s OCC. Spend EP to kill a beyond-epic level big bad guy? I’ll do it! Spend EP to learn a high-level spell? I’ll do it! Spend EP, as a TW, to make creating a TW device even possible? Lol, no.
• Sorrenson & Maris come up with schematics / plans for the device. I really like DSM’s Plasma Ball idea and intend to steal it. Thinking about it, maybe it is a bit much to stuff 800PPE into the tubes on a Juicer Harness, even for an Energy Sphere.
• Proposed Form: Take DSM’s Plasma Ball and stuff it in one of the storage bins on the Drudge. It’d take up a whole bin. It would be attached in there and non-portable. Then, because I’m chomping at the bit for a glowing juicer harness, make it so a portion (10% maybe) could be syphoned off and stored in the harness, and usable while not piloting the Drudge. The harness would flicker with Plasma Ball style energy and therefore glow, plus most of the PPE would be available for use while piloting the Drudge as I intend to use it.
• If the harness part is going to be a problem conceptually for either of you, then I’ll drop it. I’ll have to come up with another way to, one day, make the Juicer Harness glow. No mere string lights will cut it.
• The spell chain will be simple, and ideally, limited to spells Sorrenson knows. I want the device to work like an Energy Sphere. So, the chain should be something like this: Energy Sphere. Complicated spell chains are cool and all, but they add cost and time. This device is already going to take a LONG time IC and I don’t see the point in extending it when the intention is to use it, essentially, just the way the spell is used.
• Gems and stuff – I’ll toss whatever is required / attainable at it. Sorrenson has credits and is happy to spend them on this.
• Then Sorrenson will try to build it.

What do you guys think about this? I don’t want to do the math until we’ve sorted this out.

Some thoughts on DL’s (the one I posted originally was a copy and paste of what DL sent me via DM after we discussed it for a bit) and DSM’s (Plasma Ball in a stick) proposed devices

DL’s device
• I don’t think diamonds are needed to store the PPE as the Energy Sphere spell should do it as per the spell.
• ‘Accessing the PPE in storage has an activation cost of 22 PPE.’ – Why? Unless I’m missing something, I don’t think a normal caster needs to do so to draw PPE from the Sphere.
• ‘can only be recharged by being placed on a ley line or nexus- automatically refills at 20 PPE per hour.’ – I’m fine with this, if this is for game balance purposes, but 20 PPE per hour seems very slow.

DSM’s device

• ‘Form: Tesla Sphere’ – Good idea. Consider it stolen ;)
• ‘This magical battery automatically charges at the rate of 40 P.P.E. per minute when on a ley line or nexus (rate doesn't increase at a nexus). The prototype battery loses 50 P.P.E. per day. The device while it obviously crackles with visible energy when charged, does not radiate any magic at all.’ – If it’s losing 50 PPE per day, it must be leaking / radiating magic somehow. Losing 50 PPE is more than a quirk to me, it’s a serious flaw. Like, a why bother flaw.
• ‘Spell Chains:
Secondary:
Mystic Invisibility (25) - to prevent others from sensing it when charged.
Invulnerability (25) - To strengthen the device's shell to hold the massive quantity of PPE energy.’ – I don’t think these are needed. Which book is Mystic Invisibility from? I don’t recall seeing it. Sorrenson kinda wants people to know he’s packing magic, hence the glowing harness. Also, there is no CS to worry about on Phase World. For the Invulnerability, Energy Sphere has 500 MDC and is impervious to most attacks anyway.
• Spending EP for a TW to build a TW device shouldn’t be needed. It’s a core roll of the OCC, not something very difficult to do that only EP can make possible.
• Making it a LL device makes sense in a way. LL and nexus’ are going to be the only place it can be filled anyway.

Finally, I’d like to point out that all this is about just one device that all I want it to do is work like the spell. There isn’t anything really fancy about it other than it’s based on a high-level spell. The glowing harness bit is really just fluff / flavor. I have other, much more complicated stuff in mind.

Spitballing and day dreaming about possible TW devices a TW PC can make is a lot of fun. Getting a TW device made as a PC – not so much.

I think we need to balance the rules with the fun, and not let the rules overshadow the fun.

The easiest route is to just learn the spell. Sorrenson can cast it at full strength with the proper focus item. So he could use an e-clip (the form matters, so using a device that is also a battery makes sense) as the device he uses as the conduit of his magic. Without, it only reduces, the range, duration and M.D./M.D.C. so while it would only last 8 days, it could still hold 800 P.P.E. Then Sorrenson can stroll around town with big ball of energy glowing at his shoulder.

In terms of being a TW, I think when you want the device to do something different than the spell or combine various spells together in some fashion, that's when you want to invest the time in creating an actual device. If it's just to replicate an existing spell effect that you are going to use yourself, then find the right conduit and call it a day.

So I could see building a device for the Drudge that allows it to connect to the various magical systems providing external power. Then maybe build devices that link the systems to the sphere and triggers to make them tap the sphere automatically. A trigger for example that activates the AOI automatically without you having to use up an action and uses the TW energy sphere to power it.

In my example, I had the power loss set up that way just to deal with the fact that it would disappear in 16 days if no other action was taken. It was offsetting how it functions by working automatically on a ley line. It could just as easily be that once on a ley line, you flip a switch and then the spell triggers and begins filling up with energy until it reaches max or you leave the line.

The 50 PPE quirk could just be the energy it uses to maintain the structural integrity of the device or some sort of techno-babble. Over-time, Sorrenson improves the efficiency of the device so it's only 25 per day, then 10, then none as he constructions versions 1.x. My idea was just inspiration so at the end of the day, DL could take your ideas, mine, or come up with his own for the device he's willing to approve.

Yeah, I think learning the spell is the way to go. I figured that, at worst, he could cast it normally at half strength. A half strength Energy Sphere is still a very decent thing to have. I was wondering how if a focus item would work, the e-clip idea sounds excellent. It's so good, it's making me wonder if this device needs to get built at all. Instead of making a TW Energy Sphere device, just use an eclip as a focus device and use any TW workshop time to 'wire up' the Drudge with a system to distribute the PPE in the clip to various TW systems.

How would this this work: Casting Energy sphere through a focus item on a nexus? Casting it through a focus item removes the half strength penalty, and casting on a nexus doubles the strength. Would that make it hold 1600 PPE and last 32 days?

If this is the case, would filling up the eventual TW Energy Sphere device at a nexus have the same doubling effect?

the automated system is a good idea too. I'd played around with a few ideas in my head along these lines. For example, build a sensor suite to detect incoming missiles. Something like a small radar dome or IR camera like you see on Russian jet fighters, mount on the head or shoulder. Hook it up to automated closed in defense system that can either cast an Energy Field (I think that's what it's called, the 60 MDC one) into the path of the missiles, or fire a set of Fireballs at the missiles. Or both, Fireball first and Energy Field second. It's not going to stop every missile, but each point of damage that the main body doesn't take helps - a lot. There may be far better spell options for this kind of thing, but Sorrenson knows both of these.

When using a technological device as a conduit. The plain vanilla spell is cast. In this case, Sorrenson would have a sphere hovering at his shoulder, and would draw on the PPE, then pump it into whatever TW device he wanted. If Sorrenson wants the Drudge to be able to access it directly, then it becomes a TW device in and of itself.

Ley lines and nexi increase range, duration and damage. They don't increase ancillary effects. So the PPE stored is still 800, but the duration would be extended. I am blanking on how TW devices work on ley lines, I think some canon devices have specific limited increases, but in general I think the answer is yes? :eye:
Remember: The conduit item to cast the spell at full strength doesn't need to be magical, just technological.

The rules indicate you can a machine with up to 4 magical functions. Something like this gets a little wonky, because the sensor system would be the wrong object to implant the protective spell or the offensive spell. But you could have the technological sensor system trigger a mechanical device that presses a button that activates a TW device that casts energy field, and connect to another that casts fireball (Though we are more sophisticated in PW, so it's probably just some signal it sends to the TW device). That's where each TW device would need it's own PPE storage or connected to some central PPE battery.

I like the idea of simply learning and casting the spell using a focus- takes this discussion firmly into the realm of established house rules and spares us from a lot of guesswork. Because you've been a good sport I'm willing to stipulate that Sorrenson will be able to find materials that he can use to cast the spell (Metri can't teach it to him). They won't be cheap, but they'll probably be cheaper than all of those diamonds we originally discussed, and per the house rule learning the spell should take about as much time as constructing the device.

This sounds great.

I have another question. Would the Sphere be on the inside or outside of the Drudge while Sorrenson is fully suited up?

I'm guessing that it would be on the outside unless the drudge's pilot compartment is bigger than normal.

Yeah, outside makes more sense. I assume Sorrenson will need to crack the suit open to draw from it? I mean, I could see him being able to 'sip' PPE while suited up and sealed in. Taking a big gulp of mana and drawing in a bunch would require more direct access - in my imagination at least.

I've posted an expensive shopping list in the mall thread.

I would say no, he can draw on it from within the drudge.
