Sophant Characteristics
  • Augments are people who have altered themselves significantly from baseline for their species, or the specific alterations they have made to their bodies and minds. The most common augments are mechanical/cybernetic, neural, genetic, or chemical. Augments begin with 24R for approaches and abilities, 4R of normal Refresh, and 4L for their Unstable Augment limitation (28R/4L). They can take up to 44R/20L. This kind of min/max character is likely to be very fragile.
  • Unstable Augment: Every time you alter your aspects, abilities, or resilience using augments, there is a chance that the change gets messed up. This is a 4 point limitation (uncommon, damaging) so the DC for the roll is 4. The player can use any approach to overcome this DC as long as they can justify it narratively. The final roll is /roll 4f DC-4 +Approach - as long as it is narratively justified. A failed roll adds the aspect Unstable to one of the character's augments - not necessarily the new or changed one.
  • Political Leverage: My family connections and history with The Party have left me vulnerable to political manipulations. (Uncommon, Damaging 4L)
Stunts
  • Strong Leadership: +2 to Cleverly create an advantage for my team, usually at DC4. (1R)
  • He Makes A Good Point: +2 to Cleverly find convincing and persuasive arguments that make others follow my lead. (Attack vs MS)
  • TNG: Once per session I can mix, shuffle, and integrate characteristics from many organisms into a new life form that can be force grown.
  • Old Barbarian: +2 to Carefully defend against attacks.
Magic: Spells and Powers
Augmentation: Genetic and Cybernetic
  • Horror Factor: It's not that I'm scary. It's that the completely logical ideas I implement are too much for smaller minds. When the unenlightened look upon my works they are on occasion, stressed. Fong's creations and laboratories have a horror factor. Anyone not dedicated to the Transcending God must defend against a Mental Stress attack of /roll 4f +5FongClever +5FongSneaky when first encountering his...work. All consequences associated with this mental stress include an aversion to Fong, and a gibbering terror at what the future will bring. (6L Common, involuntarily damaging to others)
Damage Resistance and Healing
Teams:
Dedication: The Cause may override orders, teamwork, and relationships.
Stuff
  • Smart Dust Perfusion (3R) {13R/10L}: This neural lace is exclusive to NeuraLink. It is made of billions of nancomputers that are injected into the cerebrospinal fluid and magnetically guided through the brain. Smart Dust has extraordinary resolution when reading brain activity but relatively low resolution in modifying it because the motes do not have the energy or computational power to do stimulate neurons. It can effortlessly read subtle thoughts, sensations, and emotions, but produces vague AR and VR experiences at best. Emotions and other qualia feel like they are being imposed, not coming from within. This limited resolution is addressed by pairing it with an implanted AR interface or external AR interface. Note: Limitation costs must be paid even though the refresh costs do not accrue to the character refresh calculations.
  • Cost {6L}: This is a complex procedure that causes 6FS to pay for. If this stress is taken as a consequence use Significant Debt: Unless a HF is active, paying off this debt must include in game narrative action.
  • Vulnerable to concussions {2L}: Any physical stress that involves accelerating the head causes +2PS or +2MS (treated as attacks). Consequences taken from this damage are "Concussed: With each invocation of this consequence choose from one of the following effects: loss of concentration, disorientation, dizziness, nausea, confusion, sleepiness, or loss of coordination."
  • Magnetic Disruption {2L}: Vulnerable to strong (1T+) magnetic fields disrupt or damage the lace causing +2MS or +2PS (treated as attacks). Consequences taken from this damage are "Concussed: With each invocation of this consequence choose from one of the following effects: loss of concentration, disorientation, dizziness, nausea, confusion, sleepiness, or loss of coordination."
  • Enhanced Ability {3R}: +3 to any one IRL action once per session.
  • Metamancy Bonus {6R}: Dedicate +1 to up to 3 approaches when using metamancy (e.g., +1 Forceful +2 Flashy, or +3Quick). Metamantic actions may have indirect physical effects (a separate roll), but can not directly cause physical stress or consequences associated with physical stress. Cumulative with AR interface bonuses.
  • Hacker Bonus {4R}: +2 to Sneaky Hacking. Cumulative with AR interface bonuses.
  • EM Shielding: Baseline interfaces are shielded against ambient EM interference. Damage Resistance vs EM assaults is purchased normally.
  • Lace Firewall: Nobody gets through my firewalls.
  • Lace Intrusion Detection: I tend to notice attempts at unauthorized access to my lace.
  • Lace Hardened: All lace systems are hardened against attack.
  • Implanted AR Interface (A/V/H) (4R) {8R/4L}: This augment provides a realistic and immersive AR/VR sensorium including sight, sound, and bodily sensations. Nerves sending signals into the brain from the eyes, ears, and spine are wrapped in sensory induction coils. Note: limitation costs must be paid even though it does not accrue to the character refresh calculations.
  • EM Shielding: Baseline interfaces are shielded against ambient EM interference. Damage Resistance vs EM assaults is purchased normally.
  • Cost {4L}: This is a complex and expensive procedure that causes 4FS to pay for. If this stress is taken as a consequence use Significant Debt: Unless a HF is active, paying off this debt must include in game narrative action.
  • Metamancy Bonus {4R}: Dedicate +1 to up to 2 approaches when using metamancy (e.g., +2Quick +1Forceful +1Flashy, or +4Quick, or +2Forceful +2Flashy). Metamantic actions may have indirect physical effects (a separate roll), but can not directly cause physical stress or consequences associated with physical stress.
  • Hacker Bonus {4R}: +2 when [approachily] Hacking (attack, defend, overcome, or aspect).

Backstory

Zimeng Fong was born in Hong Kong in 1969. After his mother died of a rare degenerative disease when he was a boy, he was raised by a string of nannies. His father, a high-level government overseer for Beijing took little interest in his shy, awkward son.

Fong escaped into his school work and even among his private school peers, he excelled in mathematics and science. He diligently continued his educated and completed his PHD in Shanghai in genetics but rejected his father's offer of the directorship of a government research center in Beijing. Instead, he pursued a post-doctoral research project in Oxford in advanced genetic manipulation of livestock for optimized agriculture.

While in Oxford, he began experimenting with altering the way that humans metabolize certain proteins to support his other research. When it was discovered that he had done some...experiments... on other students, he was discharged from the university. In exchange for a large donation from his father, he returned to China to work for the Chinese government.

Dr. Fong was finally given an opportunity to experiment with humans while directing research in a questionable facility during the Chinese suppression of Tibet. It was during this time that he began to understand the spiritual implications of his work, and where it could lead us as a species and beyond.

When the Jade Rabbit Warren was conceived, he was one of 3 scientists that authored the confidential brief recommending engineered drones as the primary workforce. Despite Dr. Fong's obvious seniority, his colleague Xuan Da, was given responsibility of the administrating the Warren's genetic program. Dr. Da has since worked hard to sideline all of Dr. Fong's work. out of jealousy to a clearly superior scientist.

2034-03-04 0800LT After Action Debrief King Henry's avatar was remarkably clear and responsive.

The room was filled with many quiet conversations. Some small groups disc

Figuring out escape routes and bolt holes was one of the first things he’d done to prepare for the mission. There was a small pumping station about 400m away. It was a little off their direct route to the main entrance of the breeding pits, b

2034-03-02 1135LT Turns out terrorst attacks can be quite effective As terrorist actions go, random frothing death was pretty effective at unsettling the population.
