Magitech

Source Starfinder Armory pg. 90
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.


Rune-Etched Chitin

An exoskeleton covered with dimly glowing magical writing covers your skin, and you can activate these runes to cast spells. Each set of rune-etched chitin is inscribed with spells that have a combined level equal to the augmentation’s mark. You can be augmented with rune-etched chitin only if the spells inscribed onto it are spells you could learn and cast at your current level, though you don’t have to know them. You can cast each of the spells inscribed on the runeetched chitin once per day at a caster level equal to the augmentation’s level without using your own spell slots. You must have this augmentation implanted for at least 24 hours for it to function.
