Third-Level Inventions

Diving Mask:

(Anatomy)

Building Time: 1 week

Cost:

(9th level) In fact, this is an improved Gas Mask. The inventor made is Gas Mask appropriate to breath under water for 15 minutes. This mask only allows a character to breath under water, it doesnít allow extra movement or actions.

Flying suit:

(Anatomy)

Building Time:2 weeks

Cost:

(8th level) This is a suit that covers the whole body of the inventor, except for the head, like a divingsuit. Its principle is copied from flying squirrels. Attached to the suit are two winglike fleeces that function as parachutes when arms and legs are spread. They actually give the character some sort of Feather falling but in his enthusiasm the inventor named this item a Flying Suit.

Gas Mask

(Anatomy)

Building Time: 1week

Cost:

(7th level) The inventor carries a little barrel on his back where air is stored. through a little mouthpiece the character breathes the air when in a cloud of gas or smoke. He will have the possibility to breath for 10 minutes without any error. The used air escapes through the mouthpiece so that the air in the barrel will stay pure.

Greek Fire Projector

(Alchemy)

Building Time: 20 days

Cost:

(8th level) This gun is something like the Blunderbuss. The inventor carries a little barrel on his back which is connected to a tube. The barrel contains Greek fire (oil). When used, the oil is projected through the tube and lit at the end of it. A ray of fire (1 square wide and 3 squares long) springs from the weapon doing damage to all creatures that are within range. Damage is 2d6 dmg the first round and 1d6 the second. The barrel contains enough oil to fire 4 rounds (8 flasks), then it must be refilled.

Shadow Projector

(Physics)

 

Building Time: 30 days

Cost:

This invention creates shadows that make it easier to hide for thieves. This works best in shadowy areas and wonít work off course in an open place in bright sunlight. If used properly it will add +5 % to hide in shadows score.

Ultravision Goggles

(Physics)

Building Time: 15 days

Cost:

At 7th level enough research is made to create a better version of the Infravision Goggles. The inventor can see perfectly in darkness, starlight or moonlight, and up to 90 ft. He'll see as if itís day.

X-ray Goggles

(Physics)

Building Time: 3 weeks

Cost:

At 9th level the inventor can improve his goggles to the ultimate use. This pair of glasses grants the wearer the ability to see into and through substances that are impenetrable to normal sight. Vision range is 20 ft, with the viewer seeing as if he were looking at something in normal light. With this item the viewer can penetrate 20 ft of cloth, wood or similar animal or vegetable material, and up to 10 ft of stone or some metals. Some metals canít be penetrated at all. This item was actually invented to see through the cloths of people to see what's beneath them. It didnít function in the desired way, but itís still handy though.

 

Fourth-Level Inventions

Acid Projector

(Alchemy)

Building Time: 25 days

Cost:

(10th level) This projector works the same as the Greek Fire Projector. Only, this weapon fires acid. This is affective against regenerating creatures. Any hit inflicts 3d6 dmg the first round and 1d6 the next. Any hit will leave scars on any surviving creature. One stream of acid (as much as a flask) can be projected every round until the inventor runs out of acid (the barrel contains 8 flasks). The Acid Projector must be aimed at one creature and is treated as a missile weapon. If metal devouring acid is fired the targetís armor doesnít count.

 

Steam Propulsion

(Physics)

Building Time: None

Cost: None

This invention reflects certain knowledge in how steam propulsion works. It can be used in other inventions that require steam propulsion.

 

Steam Engine

(Physics)

Building Time: 45 days

Cost:

This invention requires the knowledge of Steam Propulsion. Basically this invention is a spinning wheel that is propulsed by heated water. This wheel can be attached to a shaft to create a vehicle or to a mechanism to make an automatically loading bolt-thrower.
