System Failure


System Failure
Roll d66. If a result comes up that doesn’t apply, or they already have, they gain a Fault instead.

System Failure may be limited to one mode.
To check if a system failure effects all modes roll 1d6:
1-4: All modes affected.
5-6: Only the character's current mode is affected.

After determining the system failure if it is italicised roll 1d6:
1-4: Failure is in effect until repaired.
5-6: Failure is intermittent. Roll 1d6 when the affected system would be used, it fails on 3 or less.
For systems that normally operate continuously the intermittent failure lasts for one phase or 15 minutes, then check again.
