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.

Olfaction Core

The olfaction core is a super-compact system of odor-detecting microprocessors and subcutaneous sensors that lets you determine the recent presence of a specific substance or even a person in a limited vicinity.
By spending a minute in a 10-foot-square area, you can detect whether something has been within that area in the previous 24 hours; what you can detect is determined by the augmentation’s model. Mk 1 units can detect and identify most drugs and poisons. Mk 2 units can additionally detect and identify common types of explosives. Mk 3 olfaction cores function as mk 1 and mk 2 units and can additionally detect a specific individual you’ve had contact with or can otherwise identify the odor of.
If you have blindsense (scent) or blindsight (scent), you need to spend only one round as a full action to use your olfaction core, and you can search a 25-foot-square area.
