Tool kits

These kits are used by Rogues to help them get into the various different types of trouble that Rogues enjoy getting into. Rogue Tool Kits provide a +4 bonus to DF checks to perform specific Skills. The use of Rogue tools is optional for Rogue Specialists as they are assumed to be crafty enough to improvise tools as needed for general use (improvised tools provide no bonus). Rogue Tool Kits are available for the following Skills:

  1. Pick Locks
  2. Camouflage
  3. Disguise
  4. Forgery
  5. Interrogation Techniques
  6. Set and Disarm Traps
  7. Stealth

Building a Rogue kit requires the Rogue/Espial Skill at level 4 and Mechanics level 4 (its a mechanics project).

Rogue kits are not a requirement for any rogue skills they merely provide a bonus. If a Rogue or Espial Skill requires a kit in the description then the a standard Keycom will fulfill that requirement.


In Z.A. there are two types of E-cells Weapon E-Cells that are used as clips for energy weapons and Equipment E-cells that are used to power gear and vehicles.

Weapon E-Cells cost 1/10 of book price and require an electrical outlet and a charger to recharge them.

Equipment E-Cells are as per book E-Cells

E-Cell Charger In Zone Alpha there are very few portable chargers, they are almost all built-in charge stations usually placed behind security barricades. Their are a few portable chargers but these are jealously guarded by high ranking security officers for security purposes. A charger can be built by anyone with the Electronics Skill level 4 or higher. It is a single project that costs 500/ level and makes a charger that can charge 1 level of E-cell per level of charger. The size of the charger is small at levels 1-3, medium at levels 4-7 and large at levels 8+. Charging an ecell takes 10 minutes.

High-Tech Hand Held Shields

Hand Held Shields provide a bonus to RF, but also inflict equal penalties to Initiative. The AC and RF of the shield only comes into play if it is targeted directly with a Called Strike, or subject to Area Effect Damage. Note that the bonus to RF provided by the Shield is only applied to the overall RF of the Character, not to the Shield itself in the aforementioned situations where it takes direct Damage. Shields provide their own combat ready slots when equipped. If a shield is equipped the arm it is strapped to cannot be used to attack except for shield attacks unless the shield is a small shield.
