  • Techno-Wizard Conversion: How High-Tech to start?

    It's less than clear from the rules and existing items just how 'technological' an item must be in order to be eligible for TW conversion. The first paragraph on page 106 seems to says it needs to be 'technological' to be converted, but then some of the existing items (Shadow Cloak and Magic Optic System, in particular) seem to be made from perfectly fine, unpowered gear. Sure, the MOS may be built on a pair of quality glasses, but it also talks about using a 'gem-encrusted visor' or 'elaborate sunglasses' as the base. And there's no indication that Shadow Cloaks were anything other than dark fabric before the TWs started working on them.

    While they can easily be used to create TW items, the rules are primarily there for converting items to run off ISP/PPE via Techno-Wizardry thus the focus on that use. The examples above would be created not converted.

    That said, it wouldn't be much different than the listed information for a melee weapon which isn't "technological" either. A success on the first roll would have no effect except to make it "magical," and it would require a raise or additional rolls to apply specific Minor or Major Upgrades.
