Chapter 2: Starship Combat / Starships in Atmosphere / Additional Hazards

Obfuscating Atmospheres

Source Starship Operations Manual pg. 53
Atmospheres often interfere with a starship crew’s ability to perceive the area they’re flying through, usually due to cloud coverage, precipitation, atmospheric density, or unusual weather patterns. An atmosphere with the obfuscation hazard imposes a penalty on gunnery and Piloting checks, as well as on Computers checks that use the starship’s sensors. This penalty is determined by the severity of the obfuscation (see Table 2–10: Obfuscation).

Table 2–10: Obfuscation

Light —1
Moderate —2
Severe —4
