Character: Vivian Morodecci
Item: Fiber-organic combat enhancing suit (FOCES)
Effect: A suit composed of military-grade materials and her own anachronistic bodysuit and enhanced by thaumaturgical means to turn it into a semi-living suit, the FOCES suit is built to link with Vivian's body processes through nervous-system proximity linking. The outer inorganic layer of the suit is comprised of her body glove, as well as military-grade metal components to grant her a form of minor armor, as well as tactical components and pouches.

The suit, itself, can assist her when she suffers an injury by putting pressure on wounds or controlling her blood flow to keep her from bleeding out, while also clotting injuries quicker than she can, herself. Various nerve nodes in the suit's materials allow Vivian to feel through it like a second, durable layer of skin, and allow her senses to work even when fully sealed in the suit. In addition, where most people might feel like their senses are dulled in suits or gloves of this manner, Vivian's nerve linking bundles allow her to operate as though she were in her bare skin, with no hindering to her performance.

The following effects are present when Vivian is fully sealed in the FOCES suit:

  • Can prevent fatal bleeding from injuries
  • Environmental control - The suits air bladders act as filters, sealing her in from airborne pathogens and toxins/poisons to GM discretion
  • STAT ENHANCEMENT - The FOCES suit grants Vivian a +1PDEF against handheld ballistic weaponry and small melee weapons only, as it is not purely meant for combat.

Upon receiving an injury that damages the organic layer of the suit, it will heal on its own in accordance with Player Character healing, depending on damage dealt to it. FULL DAMAGE includes 90% of the flesh layer being destroyed and takes 7 days to fully heal. MEDIUM DAMAGE includes %50 of the flesh layer being destroyed and takes 4 days to heal. MINOR DAMAGE includes %20 of the flesh layer being destroyed, and takes 2 days to heal.

Reason: Vivian finds herself at a vulnerable disposition in comparison to the rest of the team, and as such has sought out to solve these problems through a mix of technology and available thaumaturgical means to create a specialized combat suit to help improve her survivability in firefights and hazardous situations.
Process: Production of initial suit, fusing a layer of fitted biomass via thaumaturgical means with the help of Cait or Marcus, field testing. Upon failure, reworking from point A.
Materials: Vivian's futuristic body suit, military-grade fabrics and material, her own pathogenic biological matter, metal scrap material for plating and mechanisms
Proposed XP Cost: 16

I'm actually going to be canceling this proposal for a more pliable, Origins-possible crafting proposal.

Character: Vivian Morodecci
Item: Modular Combat Enhancement Suit
Effect: A suit crafted from futuristic fibers, based on studied technology during an operation, the MaCE suit is lined with nodes that hook specifically into Vivian's nervous system and cybernetic components to grant her various modifications in combat. Starting off, the suit will include and Adhesive projector that uses her own RNG stat. Targets struck by this adhesive are immobilized, and their AGI is considered 0 until they manage to break out using STR with a DC of 4. Targets with a natural STR higher than the Player Character STR cap can break out without rolling due to superhuman strength.

The various nodes can later be added to with a variety of other tools and weapons, such as flashlights, retractable blades, and compact remote firearms.
Reason: Vivian desires to be a more effective member of Psi-7 in combat, and believes that the only way to better herself is through technology, and not through the improvement of her own weak flesh.
Process: Reworking her Futuristic Body Suit, crafting the Adhesive Projector weapon, making cannister ammunition.
Materials: Anachronistic scrap from storage, her own body suit, various chemical agents, rubber, scrap metal though she has a large amount if it, herself.
Proposed XP Cost: 16XP

This post describes Mohawk's current features, and future features. Changelogs and updates shall be posted in this thread. This thread does not serve as a discussion point for whether Mohawk can/should replace Glacon. Unless GMs overrule me, this should be discussed in a separate thread.

This thread serves as an overview, and should not replace actual in-depth documentation. It contains a list of Mohawk's functions, and quick, concise syntax descriptions. Descriptions and manuals for Mohawk's more advanced features can be found in either the source code (which can be found on Lamb Explosion), or in one of his manual pages. (which need to be written still.)

The end goal for Mohawk is for it to replace Glacon, inheriting all of its features; Mohawk will be usable in the exact same manner Glacon is usable in, plus a plethora of new features. You needn't relearn anything you already know- only new stuff.

Questions about Mohawk, feature requests and bug reports should be directed at Cherry. You can find her on IRC.
