Constructs and fatigue

#1 Postby Oswald Rabbit » Tue Aug 14, 2012 10:21 pm

Does a Construct suffer from the effects of Fatigue? It says they don't suffer the effects of Wound Modifiers, but what about Fatigue? Do they even get Fatigued? Would a Construct suffer a level of Fatigue from taking bumps and bruises? For example, robotmen in Slipstream suffer a level of Fatigue each day they go without a recharge until they are Incapacitated, but would they still suffer a -1 to all Trait rolls for each level of Fatigue?

Depends on the source of Fatigue. They don't suffer Fatigue from disease or poison because the description specifically says they are immune to it. Unless they have something that says they are immune to other effects or the penalties from it, then they suffer it like anyone else.*

*Perhaps not exactly "like anyone else," a construct might need water as a coolant or "food" as fuel, but the effects are the same. Also, as far as Robot Men in Slipstream go, Recharging pretty much replaces food and water for them.
