(Answered) Belter Augmentations in AToW
« on: 10 March 2019, 10:43:09 »
IO page 74 lists details for three Belter Augmentation packages, but gives no AToW stats (specifically, Trait Point costs).  The AToW Companion lists "Bone and Joint Reinforcement" as a type 4S prosthetic (page 178).  Would the Belter packages be similar, or some flavor of type 5 (or even 6)?

A somewhat related question: do any of the Belter packages include Bone and Joint Reinforcement?  It would seem to make sense, and the costs involved are such that it looks reasonable (10,000 for Bone and Joint Reinforcement, 20,000 for the Vacuum Resistance Package, 25,000 for the Aerospace Pilot Package, and 200,000 for the Infantry Package).

Unfortunately, there are no official answers to that. This becomes a Rule 0 situation: do what works for your game. Unofficially, I'd say your ideas look good.

And unofficially: type 6. Belter stuff is genetic, not cybernetic.

Thanks Cray... I was suspecting as much.  I'll probably go with Type 5 something for the Vacuum Resistant package, a higher Type 5 for the Pilot package, and Type 6 something for the Infantry package.
