//GLoG/equip.exe


So, Josh over at Rise Up Comis has been conned into very generously offered to run a game using these CyberGLoG rule set. To which end he notes the need for an equipment list, which brings us to this post. Who's ready for another list of things?

Prices are listed in NeuvoYen (Y), as it's one of the only remaining stable currencies. It's also one of the last paper currency left. The dollar isn't worth the paper it's printed on, and is still only accepted in the most of the Midwestern Micronations. The eastern US and Western Europe use a credit chip like currency, while Eastern Europe mostly uses bullets and alcohol. Lot of places use BitCoin. And there's always Company Script. But all this is fake, adjust the prices as you wish, tough guy.

"Wait, so how do I get these?" Fair question. The system is set up to give you starting items based on your past career and class, in addition to a standard set of starting equipment. You gotta use this equipment you have to make money, then find a dealer.

For the current players: I don't know what Josh is having us do, as we're gonna already be established in the one shot. Hassle him.

And yes, I know, a lot of this equipment only does one dedicated function. That's to avoid fiddliness. To keep it simple. I've an idea for upgrade slots, but 1) it's far from stream lined and 2) Shadowrun has shown there's no reason not to have ALL the upgrades. So what's the point? You want all the abilities, you're gonna have to make room in your inventory.

Inventory Slots and Encumbrance

Inventory slots and encumbrance work exactly as they do in the base system. You've a number of Inventory slots equal to your Strength + 2. Most items take up one slot, though two-handed weapons take up two. Armor takes up a number of slots equal to it's Defense bonus. Negligible items take up none, nor do coins and gems, should you encounter those antiques in this digital age.

You gain 1 Encumbrance point for every Inventory slot over your capacity. Armor too causes encumbrance at a rate of one point of Encumbrance per Defense point over 3. (Defense 4 provides 1 Encumbrance point, Defense 5 provides 2, etc)

Starting Equipment

Starting characters are assumed to at least have the following:

  1. Commlink
  2. Credit Chip
  3. "Enough" ammo for starting weapons
  4. Lower class living space 
  5. And a random item from your last career


Weapons

Weapons typically come in three sizes (Light, Medium, and Heavy) across two categories (Melee and Ranged).

Light Melee would be your daggers, stun batons, electro-brass knuckles. They do 1d4+Str damage and take up a single Inventory slot. They typically cost Y100.
Medium Melee would be your sword canes, rapiers, police batons. They do 1d6+Str damage and take up a single Inventory slot. If wielded with two hands, they do 1d8+Str damage. They typically cost Y400.
Heavy Melee would be your great swords, chainsaws, jaws-of-life. They do 1d10+Str and must be wielded with two hands. They take up two Inventory slots, and typically cost Y650.

Light Range would be your hold out pistols and stun guns. They do 1d4+Dex damage and take up a single Inventory slot. They typically cost Y150.
Medium Range weapons come in two forms: pistols (revolvers, machine pistols) and rifles (AK47, M16). Pistols do 1d6+Dex damage, take up a single Inventory slot, and allow for a free hand. Rifles do 1d8+Dex damage, take up two inventory slots, and need two hands to wield. They typically cost Y350 for pistols, Y600 for rifles.
Heavy Range weapons would be your miniguns, flame throwers, and sniper rifles. They do 1d10+Dex damage, take up two inventory slots and require both hands to use. They typically cost Y1500

This doesn't account for a third category, NewTech, which would be your lasers, sonic rifles, and anything weird or high scifi laying about. My suggestion is these should be rare and treated as magic items are in other games.

Grenades are technically ranged, and do 1d6 damage to everyone in a 20 foot radius. Flashbangs, on the other hand, force you to save vs blindness within the radius. They both cost you Y150 each.

Armor

Armor as well is divided into three sizes (Light, Medium, Heavy).

Light Armor would be your leather jackets, gambeson, or impact mesh. They provide a Defense bonus of 2, and typically cost Y200.
Medium armor would be kevlar vests, flack jackets, or those chainsaw safety pants things. They provide a Defense bonus of 4, and typically cost Y500.
Heavy armor is standard riot gear - kevlar over chainmail, interwoven with impact mesh. They provide a Defense of 6 and will run you a hefty Y1100.

And again, there's the NewTech. Here is where we get the power suits and electron shields. Good for big bads and McGuffins for stealing.

Riot Shields will run you Y1200 , take up a free hand, and provide standard shield bonus.

Okay, alright, here starts the list. I can stay focused. Name, price, brief description. Items take up one slot, unless otherwise noted.
