Let's talk about gear!
What would a Sci-Fi game be without some cool tech?
And more importantly: how would anyone be able to survive down in the Deep without the appropriate Equipment, and ways of transportation?
Well of course, Polaris RPG got you covered on this, and we are happy to share a sneak peak with you today!
Core Rulebook: 2 comes with a whole chapter that will give you lots of stuff to equip your character with (even though some of it has become quite rare...)!
For example there are Exo-Armors!
This is one of the last exo-armors to have been mass-manufactured, and dates back to the Azure Alliance and the Empire of the Geneticians. It still remains quite widespread in the oceans, which explains its rather low cost. Its micro-fusion reactor can no longer be replaced, as nobody knows how to build such masterpieces anymore. Should it break down, it will have to be replaced by a much heavier device, which will have an impact on the performance of the exo-armor (Speed reduced by a third).

And of course Ships!
Fulgur Civilian Fighter
Until recently, the Fulgur corporation was quite content with building engines for underwater vessels. Its new combat fighter shows it has other tricks up its sleeve. Fast and powerfully armed, the Fulgur is an excellent defense vehicle for the danger areas. The Fulgur is also fast and can carry as much weaponry as its military counterparts. On the other hand, it uses materials that are a little less efficient, as well as high energy density batteries (in lieu of a thermoelectric generator), so its price remains reasonable. Its framework is also less sturdy. The hull of this 40-ton fighter is made of hypercomposite, its framework is made of PlasTirAl, and portholes are made of Alon. What’s more, its armor is made of composite materials.
Aaaand... lots of other stuff of course!
Always prepare yourself!
