Requiring both surgical skill and arcane mastery to create and install, magitech augmentations are a combination of cybernetic and magical components. These augmentations usually contain elements such as mystically charged crystals, starmetal alloys, and rune-covered microchips and are highly sought after by those who wish increase their magical might, such as technomancers. However, any spacefarer can benefit from even the most basic magitech augmentations.

Magitech augmentations follow much the same rules as all other augmentations in regards to implantation, activation, and removal (see page 208 of the Core Rulebook). Though they can be detected and crafted as if they were hybrid items, once they are installed, they become a part of your body and generally can’t be affected by abilities that disable or destroy hybrid items.

Ley Veins

A series of magitech glands installed throughout your body can flood your bloodstream with arcane enzymes in an instant, creating a network of living ley lines across your body to stabilize your magic. When you are casting a spell and you take damage or are subjected to an effect that could break your concentration and cause the spellcasting to fail, you can activate the augmentation as a reaction to attempt a special check to maintain your concentration. For the check, roll 1d20 + 1/2 your caster level + the ley veins’ item level. The check’s DC equals 15 + 3 × the level of the spell you are casting. If you succeed, you successfully cast the spell unless the damage or effect would kill you instantly.
