Poly Carapace

Postby dragonhawk » Thu Dec 10, 2015 3:04 pm

Two questions for the Poly Carapace description.

First, the text mentions that more advanced lightweight versions do not have the minus to physical activity skill checks but you have a lightweight version and an advanced version. Do both not have the DM for skill checks or just the advanced or lightweight version? This may need to be made clearer.

Second, it does mention a lightweight version but all three versions weight 2kg. Is this correct or should the TL 10 version have a higher weight?

Came searching for this thread rather than start one, but it's gone unanswered... I ended up finding the answer in CSC1e, though, and thought I'd leave it here for the next searcher.

The higher TL versions are only "lightweight" in that they can provide more armour for the same weight, and only the TL13 Advanced version doesn't impose the penalty.
