Description:
Item Name: Progressive Weaponry
Item Type: Template (Melee Weapons Only)
Functions & Features:
Progressive weapons are a later derivative of the same technology that powers the PL (6) Vibro-Blade. Using new metallurgy techniques brought about in the Gravity Age it becomes possible to produce progressively stronger and lighter materials that can withstand a progressively higher level of molecular oscillation, thus was the process for which these weapons were named. Forged in zero-g from a synthetic carbon allotrope, a technique originally developed for armor, these weapons can be honed to incredible sharpness measuring less than a single nanometer along their edge. Combined with specific high frequency vibrations a blade of this nature can part through even the densest of armor with ease.
Any Bladed melee weapon can be made as a Progressive weapon.
Template Effects:
1) The Progressive template Doubles a weapons base damage Dice. Thus a Progressive Long Sword made to be used by a medium sized creature would deal (2d8) points of damage rather than (1), where as a Progressive Long Sword for a Huge sized creature would deal (6d6) rather than (3).
2) The Progressive template increases a weapons critical threat range by (1). (19-20) becomes (18-20) etc.
3) The Progressive template causes the weapon to ignore a certain number of points of an object’s Hardness depending on the weapon’s size. Diminutive (1), Tiny (5), Small (10), Medium (15), Large (20), Huge (25), Gargantuan (30), and Colossal (35).
4) All Progressive Weapons are considered Masterwork and so have a (+1) Bonus to Attack.
5) All Progressive Weapons weigh Twice as much as normal.
6) All Progressive Weapons require regular maintenance and special equipment to retain their properties. A Progressive Weapon that doesn’t receive at least (10) minutes of maintenance after an encounter in which it was used temporarily looses all its special properties. A Progressive Weapons maintenance kit weighs (8)Lbs. and has a purchase DC of (18).
