Cybernetic augmentations use machines and circuitry integrated with the flesh and bone of the recipient. In most cases, cybernetics must be installed into the body by a trained surgeon—a process that takes 1 hour per level of the augmentation and the price of which is covered in the price of the cybernetic. Cybernetics are more than just machine implants: they are complex meldings of technology and the living host’s own organs. This allows them to be hardened against assaults that affect other technologies in ways robots and other entirely technological creatures can’t. Cybernetics are not subject to any effect or attack that targets technology unless it specifies that it affects cybernetics.

Force Matrix

Your hand contains a matrix of energy-sensitive fibers that can shape a force field armor upgrade installed into armor you are wearing, focusing its strength in a particular direction. As a move action while your force field is active, you can designate an opponent you can see. Until the beginning of your next turn, your force field’s fast healing is halved, but against the designated opponent’s attacks, you increase your force field’s fortification percentage chance by 10% (maximum 100%) and gain DR/— based on the model of your force matrix. This benefit ends if you lose all the temporary Hit Points provided by your force field. The hand bearing the force matrix augmentation must be free to activate its abilities.
