Silver Age Beyond
Melee - Fusion Blade
Fusion Blade (TL8): An energy sword. Fusion Blades — like most free floating fusion energy tech — were developed from stolen alien technology. At the flick of a switch, a sword-shaped force field is created which instantly fills with plasma. Anything which comes into contact with this blade-shaped field can get severely damaged, similar to being hit by an energy bolt from a ranged weapon. Like all blast weapons, fusion blades can leak through energy shields (forcefields).
Cost: 15000 considered an artifact – Fusion Blades are rarely made today; the tech know-how is arcane.
Worth: 9 Minor Gadgets
Tech level: 8
Ammunition: These swords are powered by a fusion cell, which lasts for 30 turns.
Rumor says that an ancient Reikaw order of warrior monks carried these weapons, and were dedicated to justice, long ago.
|Blast weapons can leak through energy shields. Roll Damage Percentage normally, but those dice which roll 2 or 3 they ignore shields. However, these weapons are dangerous; they have been known to blow up when treated badly. On a Damage Percentage roll of 20, the violent plasma energy overcomes the forcefield too quickly, and the weapon explodes, rendering it useless, and doing 100% damage to the user holding the weapon (ignoring their shields).|
