Item Name: Alpha-System
Item Weight: 250-2500 Lbs.
Functions & Features:
In essence this device is simply a highly sophisticated replicator powered by psychic energy. However, its capacity to manipulate energy and matter on a subatomic level makes its usefulness immeasurable in practical terms.
When activated this device generates a low intensity electromagnetic field within a specified area. This field then acts as a carrier wave for the system’s internal supply of Element Alpha.
Essentially stabilized proto-mater, Alpha material is capable of taking on the properties of anything it has direct contact with or anything that can be programed into it through the use of replicator technology and the appropriate data template. Alpha material once exposed to a data model becomes ‘imprinted’ with it much like a computer hard drive, however the substance is unable to act upon this information without a proper catalyst. Without an infusion of psychic energy Element Alpha remains seemingly inert, appearing in its natural state as a milky white super dense metallic liquid with physical properties akin to that of mercury. In this sense Element Alpha could be thought of as a psycho-reactive metal, altering its form based on the desires of its user.
Alternately, just as Alpha material can take on the properties of other matter and energy forms so can other forms of matter and energy take on the psycho-reactive property of Element Alpha. When a matter or energy stream passes through a given volume of Element Alpha that stream enters a kind of ‘flux’ state as the Alpha material attempts to assimilate the unknown body into its own data matrix. In effect, the two become temporarily entwined on a quantum level despite their differences in atomic structure or energy states. As such by manipulating the data matrix of the parent Alpha material one can also manipulate the subsequent ‘flux’ material in similar fashion through psionic energy.
This later phenomenon is the mechanism by which the Alpha System operates. By effectively creating a psychic energy field that can envelop neighboring objects and forces, an Alpha System can impose any changes the user desires upon any object that has been subjected to its ‘flux’ effect.
The only true limitation this system has is the abundance of its energy source, Psionic Energy, which typically can only be generated by a select few life forms and in limited quantity. Otherwise the potential uses for an Alpha System are as expansive as its user’s imagination and knowledge can account for.
Limitations of Use:
A Character using a Alpha-System can expend a Number of Power Points from the Device per turn equal to (5) + the Characters Base Will Save + Wisdom Modifier, + (1) additional point if that character’s race is naturally psionic. Alternately, if the character has Psionic Class Levels and can normally spend more points per turn than otherwise would be possible using the previous method, then that character can spend the higher amount per turn but must spend the Power Points from their personal pool rather than that of the device’s.
An Alpha System is Typically equipped with a Psionic Capacitor capable of storing anywhere between (100) and (1,000) Power Points.
The most advanced versions of these systems do not require a psionic entity to recharge them. Rather they have been outfitted with an additional technology called a Psionic Inversion Core. This technology is derived from a much earlier device invented back in the Fusion Age: the Psyshic Converter. Rather than converting psionic energy into electricity, the Inversion Core is capable of transforming electricity into blank psionic energy. However, the rate of conversion is relativly slow in most cases, and is dependent upon the total storage capacity of the device’s component psionic capacitor. An Alpha-System so equipped restores approximately (1.041666)% of its maximum power point pool each hour so long as the device is supplied with a consistent influx of electrical current. This equates to (25)% every (24)hours and a complete recharge after (4)days.
In practical terms an Alpha-System can fully reconfigure (2)Lbs. of any type of matter for every (1) power point expended and requires (1) full-round to complete the transformation once the required amount of points have been spent.
