Capsules. Almost all items, regardless of their size, can be stored within a capsule. It’s due to this reason that the DBU system does not care about weight or how much you carry, since it can all be conveniently stored within capsules. Capsules are sorted by the size category of the item inside, and can be of varying rarities.
At Character Creation, feel free to speak to your ARC about having mundane items stored within capsules that add flavor to your character, such as Trunks having a cooler full of drinks. Some ARCs may reward your creativity in using them later.
Gear Kit. Kits are special starting packages you can take at Character Creation. To make a Gear Kit, gain +2 Equipment Points. You can spend Equipment Points at Character Creation to:
Gain +1 piece of Apparel (Low Grade).
Gain +1 Apparel Quality on a select piece of Apparel.
Gain +1 Basic item with a Craft TN of Medium or lower.
Gain +1 Weapon with a Craft TN of Very Easy.
Gain +1 Vehicle with a Craft TN of Medium.
Increase the Grade of one piece of Apparel. At Tier of Power 1, you can only possess Low Grade Apparel. At Tier of Power 2, you cannot increase any piece of Apparel higher than Standard Grade.
Increase the maximum Craft TN for gaining a Basic Item, Weapon or Vehicle by +1 Difficulty Category. Each time you select this option you must apply it to one instance of gaining a Basic Item, Weapon or Vehicle (this can be stacked).
In addition to this, you can either gain a Weapon (Craft TN Hard), a Battle Jacket, a Vehicle (Craft TN Hard), a single Accessory (with a Craft TN of Hard or lower) or up to 2 Basic Items of your choice (with a Craft TN of Medium or lower).
Gear Kits at Higher Tiers. For each Tier of Power higher than 1 you are at Character Creation, gain +2 additional Equipment Points to spend. If your Tier of Power is 4+ at Character Creation, one piece of Apparel may gain +1 Special Apparel Quality.
Apparel. Outfits are a great way to experience your character’s uniqueness and through Apparel, you can design an outfit that supports not only their fighting style, but their approach to life. Apparel is a type of item that your character wears for their clothing.
Each piece of Apparel grants you effects while you are wearing them, categorized as ‘Benefits’ and ‘Apparel Qualities’. Apparel Qualities are how you customize your specific piece of Apparel, while the Benefits are inherent to the categories of your Apparel.
You can wear up to three layers of Apparel at once, but only gain access to the Benefit and Apparel Qualities of the top layer, while all pieces of Apparel increase your penalty.
Each piece of Apparel has a Break Value of 4 by default. Only the top layer of your Apparel suffers any reductions to its Break Value.
Break Value. Both weapons and apparel can break, meaning they lose effectiveness. An item only breaks when its Break Value reaches 0. All items by default have a Break Value of 5, and can be repaired via a Craft Skill Check, TN Medium, when you are not in combat and you have at least an hour of time to spend.
Melee Weapons lose -1 Break Value if you botch on a Wound Roll while attacking with one.
Ranged Weapons lose -1 Break Value if you botch on a Strike Roll while attacking with one.
Apparel loses -1 Break Value if you are knocked through a Health Threshold, or if an opponent with an equal or higher Tier of Power than you successfully strikes (hits) you with an Attacking Maneuver and then scores a Critical Result on their Wound Roll. If your Weights are broken, this counts as if you removed them for the Doff Bonus.
If a weapon or piece of apparel is targeted and successfully hit by a Called Shot, they lose -2 Break Value.
Apparel Penalty. Each piece of Apparel you wear reduces your Combat Rolls by -1.
Donning Apparel. Putting on Apparel only takes a minute or so outside of a Combat Encounter, potentially less. During a Combat Encounter, putting on a piece of Apparel takes Two Actions.
Doff Bonus. Removing a piece of Apparel costs One Action. After you remove a piece of Apparel, you gain a bonus of 1/3 of X to all Combat Rolls (using that piece of Apparel’s Grade) until the end of your next turn. If you remove your last piece of Apparel and you are below the Injured Health Threshold, you retain the Doff Bonus from the last piece of Apparel you removed until the end of the Combat Encounter, or until you are in the Healthy Health Threshold.
You cannot gain the Doff Bonus more than once per Combat Encounter, per piece of Apparel. If you would attempt to remove a piece of Apparel that is not your current top layer of Apparel, increase the number of Actions required to remove that piece of Apparel +1 for each higher layer of Apparel.
Ripping Apparel. When you transform into a Legendary Form, you may remove and destroy a piece of Apparel you are wearing. If you do, increase the Doff Bonus for that piece of Apparel by +1/3 of X (using that piece of Apparel’s Grade). Also, if your current Size Category is 2+ Size Categories larger than your base Size Category, you must immediately remove and destroy all pieces of Apparel you are currently wearing.
Apparel Category. To create a piece of Apparel, you must first decide its category. There are four categories for Apparel, each one with their own Benefit:
Armor. The Benefit of Armor is that it reduces all damage you take from Attacking Maneuvers by -X.
Weights. The Benefit of Weights is that your Doff Bonus is +X instead of 1/3 of X and increases the duration of the Doff Bonus by +1 Combat Round. Weights reduce your Combat Rolls by -X, instead of -1 through the Apparel Penalty.
If you Doff weights before the third Combat Round of a Combat Encounter, you do not gain the Doff Bonus.
Combat Clothing. The Benefits of Combat Clothing are that they increase your Dodge Rolls by 2/3 of X. You cannot wear Combat Clothing as a higher layer than Armor or Weights.
Standard Clothing. The Benefits of Standard Clothing are that they increase your Personality Modifier by X and your Skill Checks that use your Personality Modifier by 1/3 of X. You cannot wear Standard Clothing as a higher layer than Armor or Weights.
The ‘X’ on each category, along with the base Craft TN for each piece of Apparel, is decided by the Apparel Grade.
Apparel Grade. After deciding the category, you must decide how skillfully made each piece of Apparel is. This fundamentally decides how difficult they are to create and how much of a bonus you gain from your Benefits. There are three grades:
Low. X=3, Craft TN Medium.
Standard. X=6, Craft TN Hard.
High. X=9, Craft TN Very Hard.
The final step to creating Apparel is to select which Apparel Qualities you gain. Some Apparel Qualities can only be gained by certain categories of Apparel, in which case they’ll have the categories that can take that Apparel Quality in brackets. For each Quality you select, increase the Craft TN by +3. Each piece of Apparel can have up to 3 Apparel Qualities.
Layered. While this piece of Apparel is the top layer of your current worn pieces of Apparel, you may also apply the Benefits and Apparel Qualities of the piece of Apparel immediately below it as long as it is not of the same Apparel Category. You can only wear one piece of Apparel with the Layered Apparel Quality at any one time.
Unique Decal. Your equipment has a cape, is encrusted in jewels, has animal fur or otherwise leaves a mark. Increase your rolls with a Skill of your choice by +1/3 of X. The Skill must use your Personality Modifier to be chosen.
Sentimental Value. This piece of clothing has particular meaning to you. When you spend a Karma Point to add an additional d10 to your roll, you regain your Karma Point if you score a Natural Result of 10 on that dice. If this piece of Apparel is broken by an opponent, gain the Fury Combat Condition, but you can only make Attacking Maneuvers against the opponent that broke this piece of Apparel until the end of your next turn.
Weather Resistant. When you gain this quality, choose any type of Battle Weather other than Sunny Day or Fog. You do not suffer the negative effects of that Battle Weather while wearing this piece of Apparel.
Reinforced. If this Apparel would break from its Break Value reaching 0, instead roll a 1d10 with a TN of 4. On meeting or exceeding the TN, it does not break and sets the Break Value back to 1. For every time it would have been broken, increase the TN by 2.
Stretching. This piece of Apparel will not be destroyed by your Size Category according to the Ripping Apparel rule, regardless of your current or base Size Category.
Team Outfit. When you select this Apparel Quality, choose a team name. For each ally with this Apparel Quality with the same team name within 4 squares of you, increase your Personality Modifier by +1(T).
Dense Armor (Armor). Increase your damage reduction from this piece of Apparel by +3 but increase your Apparel Penalty by +1 while wearing this piece of Apparel.
Joint Protection (Armor). Notable plating covering the shoulders, hips or other joints. The first time this piece of Apparel would break from its Break Value reaching 0, it does not break (set the Break Value back to 1) and you may gain the Doff Bonus of this piece of Apparel. If you do so, this uses your once per Combat Encounter Doff Bonus for this piece of Apparel.
To gain this effect again, you or an ally must spend an hour outside of a Combat Encounter to make a Craft Skill Check equal to this piece of equipment’s requirement to fix the Joint Protection. If this piece of equipment is not, itself, broken – reduce the required TN for the Craft Skill Check by -3.
Training Support (Weights). If you possess any stacks of Holding Back while wearing this Apparel, you may ignore the Apparel Penalty from this piece of Apparel.
Hefty Plating (Weights). When you use an action to remove this piece of Apparel, you may use the Throw Maneuver as an Out-of-Sequence Maneuver. If you do, the Hardness Value of this piece of Apparel is equal to 1/3 of X.
Lightweight (Combat Clothing/Standard Clothing). This piece of Apparel is especially easy to move in. The Apparel Penalty does not apply to this piece of Apparel. If you choose this option, the base Break Value for this piece of Apparel is 2.
Jacket (Standard Clothing). This piece of Apparel can be worn over Armor or Weights. If you also have access to the Layered Apparel Quality, you may benefit from the Apparel Qualities of the Armor or Weights immediately below this Apparel’s layer. If you choose this option, the base Break Value for this piece of Apparel is 2.
Intellectual (Standard Clothing). Instead of increasing your Personality Modifier, this Apparel instead increases your Scholarship Modifier by X and your Skill Checks that use your Scholarship Modifier by 1/3 of X. In addition, if the Unique Decal Apparel Quality is selected as part of this Apparel, you may select a skill that uses your Scholarship modifier for its effects instead.
Environment Resistant (Combat Clothing/Standard Clothing/Armor). When you gain this quality, choose any type of Battle Environment. You are immune to the effects of that Battle Environment while wearing this piece of Apparel.
Seductive (Standard Clothing). Once per Combat Round, you may spend up to 3 Actions to target an Opponent and make an Opposed Morale Save against the target. If the target wins, nothing happens. If you win, they lose a number of Actions on their next turn equal to the amount you spent to use this effect – these actions are dedicated to ogling your character.
Opponents that are Pure of Heart and/or have an orientation which results in them having zero interest in the wearer automatically succeed at this Morale Save.
Optional (Your ARC decides if this is included): You gain +1 Karma Point each time an opponent fails an Opposed Morale Save against you while wearing this piece of Apparel. This Karma Point must be used during this Combat Encounter. You cannot gain more than 2 Karma Points through this method during each Combat Encounter.
Sleek Design (Armor). The Damage Reduction from this Apparel is only equal to 2/3 of X. The Apparel Penalty does not apply to this piece of Apparel. Cannot be chosen with Dense Armor.
Stealthy Suit (Combat Clothing/Standard Clothing). Increase your Stealth Skill Checks by +1/3 of X.
Exploration Features (Combat Clothing/Standard Clothing/Armor). Once per Combat Encounter, you can spend an Instant Action to become immune to all Battle Environments for 2 Combat Rounds while wearing this piece of Apparel.
Leader’s Insignia (Combat Clothing/Standard Clothing/Armor). Once per Combat Round, as an Instant Action, you can target an Ally or a Minion who is wearing a piece of Apparel with the Team Outfit Quality that possesses the same team name as this piece of Apparel. If they’re an Ally, increase all of their Combat Rolls by +1(T) until the end of your next turn – this does not stack. If they’re a Minion, you may use the Command Maneuver as an Out-of-Sequence Action.
You can only select this Quality if this piece of Apparel has the Team Outfit Quality.
Armed (Armor/Standard Clothing). This Apparel item possesses an integrated Weapon as part of it. When you add this Quality to a piece of Apparel, design a Melee Weapon as if it was created through the Crafting Rules with a Medium TN. You may sheathe or unsheathe it from this piece of Apparel as an Instant Action.
Focal (Weights). Upon creating this piece of Apparel, select one Combat Roll. The chosen Combat Roll is the only Combat Roll reduced by the Apparel Penalty from this piece of Apparel, but only that Combat Roll benefits from this piece of Apparel’s Doff Bonus.
Ceramic Armor (Armor). When you use the Transformation Maneuver or Power Up Maneuver, you may destroy this piece of Apparel as an Out-of-Sequence Action. If you do, make a Physical Strike Roll against all characters within 4 Squares of you. Any Opponent that is successfully struck (hit) receives damage as if they were hit by a piece of Terrain with a Hardness Value of 2 thrown by the Throw Maneuver.
Loose (Combat Clothing/Standard Clothing). You may Doff this Apparel as an Instant Action.
Mystical (Combat Clothing/Standard Clothing). Increase your Use Magic and Clairvoyance Skills by +1/3 of X.
Notorious Symbol (Armor/Combat Clothing/Standard Clothing). Name an Organization. If someone knows and fears that Organization, increase your Intimidation Skill Checks against that character by +2/3 of X.

Speak with your ARC to select a Special Event – this is a circumstance in which wearing this outfit would be appropriate, such as wearing an expensive suit at a wedding. If you would arrive at your selected Special Event, gain +1 Karma Point. You can only gain 1 Karma Point through this method at that particular instance of your chosen Special Event.
If a Combat Encounter occurs while at the selected Special Event, the Doff Bonus for this piece of Apparel is equal to X during that Combat Encounter.
Special Apparel Qualities
Certain qualities are more special than others, allowing for your Apparel to gain unique effects. These are typically gained through your ARC granting you unique pieces of Apparel but may be present on Transformations with the Battle Uniform Aspect.

Accessories. Accessories are additional pieces of worn equipment that grant some additional effect. They do not count to the maximum number of layers of Apparel you can wear, but you can only wear up to two Accessories at any time. Donning or Doffing Accessories follows typical Apparel rules. While they do not have a Break Value, they can be destroyed by a successful Called Shot with them as the target that deals damage equal to 1/10 of your Maximum Life Point Pool or higher. Accessories are considered to be Basic Items and therefore follow the typical crafting rules for Basic Items, but they can also be Special Items, such as Potara Earrings.
Below are a list of Accessories:
AI Goggle (Hard) [Tech]. You gain an AI companion who can support you by controlling Vehicles you possess as if that Vehicle had the Autopilot Vehicle Quality. They may also speak with other characters as if they were a communicator. If you are Defeated, your AI companion can move your unconscious body up to 2 Squares at the start of each Combat Round.
Increase all of your Strike Rolls against characters that are 6+ squares away from you by +1(T).
Armored Gloves (Medium). If you score a Critical Result on your Strike Roll for an Unarmed Physical Attack, apply the benefits of the Bludgeoning Weapon Category onto that Attacking Maneuver. This effect only applies if you are wearing Armor.

Control Bracelet (Very Hard) [Tech]. When this item is made, select a Suppression Crown Accessory. When a character is wearing your selected Suppression Crown Accessory, you can attempt to stop them from using any kind of Maneuver by spending a Counter Action in response to their attempt to use that Maneuver. Make an Opposed Cognitive Save against that character. If you lose, nothing happens and their Maneuver continues as normal. If you win, they fail to use that Maneuver and cannot attempt to use that Maneuver again until the end of their turn. If it was an Attacking Maneuver, they just cannot use an Attacking Maneuver of that same Attack Type. For instance, if they were attempting to use a Basic Attack with the Crushing Profile, they could still use a Basic Attack of the Sphere Profile.
If the target is currently in Rage, increase their Cognitive Save Dice Score by +1(T) against this effect.
Eyeglasses (Medium). When you gain or create this Accessory, you must declare an Intended Character. If you’re the Intended Character, increase the Natural Result of any Perception Skill Check made relying on sight by +1 while wearing this Accessory.
If you’re not the Intended Character, reduce the Natural Result on any Perception Skill check made relying on sight by -1 while wearing this Accessory.
Eyepatch (Easy). Decrease the Natural Result of any Perception checks made that rely on sight by -1, but in return increase the Natural Result of any Intimidation checks by +1.
Fashionable Accessory (Medium). Increase your Morale Saving Throws by +1(T) while wearing Standard Clothing in addition to this Accessory.
Galactic Receiver (Medium) [Tech]. This is a wearable device, a communication device that doubles as a tool for enhancing your hearing. When you roll a Perception Skill Check related to your hearing, increase the Natural Result by +2.
You may contact any other character with a Galactic Receiver as long as they are within the same galaxy as you and you are aware of their frequency.
Helmet (Hard). Reduce all Damage you take from Attacking Maneuvers and from being knocked into the Terrain by -1(T).
Additionally, increase your Skill Checks to hide your identity (see – Transformation Watch) by +2.

Ki-Sealing Handcuffs (Nearly Impossible) [Tech]. When this Accessory is created, you must create a Key Basic Item for this instance of the Accessory. You may spend Three Actions to place this Accessory on a Defeated opponent or a character unaware of your presence, even if they are already wearing an Accessory.
While wearing this Accessory, reduce your Capacity Rate to 1/2 and you cannot use any Transformation Maneuvers, Signature Techniques, Magical Abilities, Energy Attacks, Magic Attacks or Ki Wager.
You cannot remove this Accessory and you cannot target this Accessory with a Called Shot.
If you possess the correct Key, you may remove this Accessory by spending One Action.
Mask (Easy). When anyone attempts to identify you, they must spend One Action to make an opposed roll – their Perception Skill against your Bluff or Performance (Actor) Skill, whichever is higher. Alternatively, they can make an opposed Clairvoyance Skill Check against your Concealment.
Increase any Skill Checks for hiding your identity by +2.
Metamo Ring (Nearly Impossible) [Tech]. Possessing the properties of the Potara Earring and implemented through the Fusion Dance, wearing this ring allows for an easily accessible, albeit weaker Fusion.

Micro Band (Very Hard) [Tech]. A watch that allows you to shrink. At the cost of One Action, you may reduce your Size Category to the Tiny or Nano Size Category. Reduce your Force Modifier and your Soak Value by -1/2 while you are shrunk to the Tiny Size Category and by -3/4 while you are shrunk to the Nano Size Category. While shrunk, increase your Stealth Skill Checks by +2.
You can spend One Action to return to your base Size Category.
Sash (Medium). Increase your Impulsive Saving Throws by +1(T) while wearing Combat Clothing in addition to this Accessory.
Scouter (Medium) [Tech]. This is a wearable device, an all-purpose computer that can be used as a communication device and can track the locations of other creatures. When tracking a creature, the scouter gives out a numeric value of the creature’s strength as well as the distance to it. You can spend One Action to attempt and scan the strength of another character or you can scan the entire planet to look for notable power levels. Any character that is using the Holding Back Maneuver or is aware of the scanning can make a Concealment Skill Check, TN Hard. If they succeed, nothing happens and they automatically succeed on any further Concealment Skill Checks to avoid being spotted by a Scouter for the remainder of the Combat Encounter or for the next hour – as long as they immediately use the Holding Back Maneuver or maintain their current (or higher) number of stacks of Holding Back if they already had any number of Holding Back stacks. If their number of Holding Back stacks would decrease below their current number, they lose this benefit. If they fail, you become aware of their current Tier of Power and their current location. If their current Tier of Power is the same as their base Tier of Power, you also learn of their Power Level.
If a character has a Tier of Power of 2+ and they use the Power Up Maneuver or Transform Maneuver while within 15 squares of you, your Scouter malfunctions and is destroyed. You can increase the Tier of Power requirement by +1 by increasing the Scouter’s Craft TN to Hard and you can increase the Craft TN to Very Hard to create a model of Scouter that does not break but cannot give you information about a character who has a current Tier of Power of 4+.

At the end of each Combat Encounter, if you sheathe your Weapon, that Weapon regains +1 Break Value. This effect does not apply if the Weapon is destroyed.
Shock Collar (Hard) [Tech]. A silver collar that binds the neck of the user. While the wielder is in a Transformation, they may spend 2 Actions to break the Shock Collar.
Sunglasses (Easy). Ignore the effects of the Solar Flare Magical Ability.
Trucker Hat (Medium). Increase the Dice Score for any Skill Checks with your Pilot Skill by +2. If a Vehicle you are piloting would successfully collide with another character, increase the damage they take by +1d4(T).
Chef’s Hat (Easy). Reduce the Skill Check of all Craft (Cooking) Skill Checks by -1 Difficulty Category.
Flowing Fashion (Hard). You wear a scarf or cape, making you look like a true hero! Increase the Dice Score for any Skill Checks with your Performance (Posing) Skill by +2.

Suppression Crown (Very Hard) [Tech]. Reduces the power of the wearer’s Transformations. Reduce the Attribute Modifier Bonuses (AG/FO/SP) of all Alternate Forms by -2. If the wearer would attempt to transform into a Legendary Form, increase the Stress Test Requirement by +3.
If they still make the Stress Test and successfully transform into a Legendary Form, destroy this Accessory.
Time Breaker Mask (Nearly Impossible). A Time Breaker Mask can only be created through the Magical Materialization Magical Ability. When you create a Time Breaker Mask, you must immediately attempt to place it on another character. Make an Opposed Cognitive Save against their Impulsive Saving Throw. If they win, the Time Breaker Mask is destroyed. If you win, the mask is placed onto their face, they cannot remove it and they gain +1 Tier of Power (see – Breakthrough). A character wearing the Time Breaker Mask cannot enter any Transformation with the Battle Uniform Aspect.
Once per Combat Round, as an Instant Action, the Creator of the Time Breaker Mask may target a character they’ve given the Time Breaker Mask to. Force the Wearer to roll an Opposed Cognitive Saving Throw against the Creator, with the Creator’s roll being increased by +1(T). If the Wearer wins, they gain +2(T) in all Cognitive Saving Throws against the Creator until the end of the Combat Encounter and nothing else happens. If the Creator wins, during the Wearer’s next turn, they can only make Attacking Maneuvers against a target of the Creator’s choice, they must make at least 2 Attacking Maneuvers and all of their Attacking Maneuvers must have a Ki Wager of at least 6(T) Ki Points. If they do not have the Ki Points to make the Ki Wager, they may Ki Wager using their Life Points in place of their Ki Points to make the minimum Ki Wager.
Once per Combat Encounter, the Wearer of a Time Breaker Mask can spend One Action to attempt to remove the mask. They must make an Opposed Cognitive Save against the Creator of the mask. If the Creator wins, nothing happens. If the Wearer wins, they can remove the mask freely and even wear it as if it was a standard Mask Accessory that grants them +1 Tier of Power (see – Breakthrough) while wearing it. The mask only has this effect when worn by the original wearer.
When anyone attempts to identify a character wearing the Time Breaker Mask, they must spend One Action to make an opposed roll – their Perception Skill against your Bluff Skill. If you win, nothing happens. If they win, they correctly identify your character. While wearing a Time Breaker Mask, even if someone can sense your Ki, it feels distinctly different from how it is normally and therefore cannot be used to identify you.
While wearing a Time Breaker Mask, increase your Bluff Skill Checks by +2.
Battle Jacket Belt (Very Hard) [Tech]. When you first gain/craft this Accessory, create a Battle Jacket using the Battle Jacket Creation rules, with you as the Creator. That Battle Jacket is considered Stored within this Accessory.
If there’s enough space for the square occupancy of the Stored Battle Jacket, you may spend one Action while wearing the Belt to make it appear instantly on your position, or return the Stored Battle Jacket in your Belt, if you are piloting the Stored Battle Jacket or on an Adjacent Square. If you make the Battle Jacket appear on your position, you automatically enter this Battle Jacket through this effect.
Transformation Watch (Very Hard) [Tech]. When you first gain/craft this Accessory, gain +8 Equipment Points to spend immediately. These Equipment Points can only be spent on (up to three) pieces of Apparel and (up to two) Accessories. Any Apparel and Accessories created through this method are referred to as your ‘Hero Costume’.
By spending One Action while wearing the Transformation Watch, you can swap your current Apparel and Accessories (except the Transformation Watch) for your Hero Costume or return to your previous Apparel and Accessories if you have already used this effect. If you would have any Doff Bonuses, they are lost during this transformation.
When anyone attempts to identify you, they must spend One Action to make an opposed roll – their Perception Skill against your Bluff or Performance (Actor) Skill, whichever is higher. Alternatively, they can make an opposed Clairvoyance Skill Check against your Concealment.
The Transformation Watch does not count towards your limit of Accessories and cannot be gained through a Gear Kit.
Weapons. You can design and create your very own weapon, as described below. Once per Combat Round, you can either unsheathe or sheathe a weapon as an Instant Action but you cannot do both. The maximum number of weapons you can carry is equal to 1/2 your Force Modifier but the maximum number of weapons you can wield is equal to the amount of hands your character has.
You cannot use a Signature Technique with the bonuses of a weapon unless it has the ‘Weapon Assisted’ Advantage.
Hardness Value. Weapons have a Hardness Value of 2 by default. The Hardness Value of weapons is not added to the Wound Roll, it exists solely for the sake of throwing the weapon. If you throw a weapon, either through Telekinesis or the Throw Maneuver, you add the Hardness Value onto it.
Wielding Penalty. While wielding any type of weapon, reduce your Strike Rolls by -2(T).
Weapon Attack Types. When making any type of Attacking Maneuver, it falls into one of two categories: Unarmed or a Weapon Attack. The simple definition is that if you are using a Weapon to make this Attacking Maneuver, in which case it is benefiting from that weapon’s effects and qualities, it is a Weapon Attack. An Unarmed attack is any Attacking Maneuver that does not involve a Weapon.
Weapon Type. When you create a weapon, you must first choose the type of weapon. A weapon can be either a Melee Weapon or a Ranged Weapon. Melee Weapons follow all the rules for Physical Attacks and Ranged Weapons follow all the rules for Energy Attacks (see – Attacking & Conditions). Additionally, each Ranged Weapon has a default Ammo of 1. Ammo is a resource that is expended when making any type of Attacking Maneuver with a Ranged Weapon. You can regain all of a weapon’s Ammo by using the Reload Maneuver.
You can attempt to make a Dynamic Weapon that does not fit into either category, like a mine, by discussing it with your ARC.
Weapon Size. After you have selected the type of weapon, you must decide the size of the weapon. Weapons can be One-Handed or Two-Handed, denoting the number of hands required to use the weapon with an Attacking Maneuver. You may still carry or hold a Two-Handed weapon with a single hand – you just cannot use it for an Attacking Maneuver. Since One-Handed weapons allow you to keep a hand free, you may attack with a One-Handed weapon while grappling or wield two One-Handed weapons instead.
All Wound Rolls made with a Two-Handed Weapon are increased by +3(T), but decrease your Strike Roll by an additional -1(T).
Now that you know the type of weapon and what size it is, you must choose a category to decide what kind of weapon it is. Both types of weapon have their own categories:
Melee Weapon. Melee Weapon Categories can only be chosen by Melee Weapons, and relate to what occurs when you score a Critical Result on your Strike Roll. When you score a Critical Result with any type of Melee Weapon, increase the Damage Category of your attack by +1 (Standard becomes Direct, Direct becomes Lethal).
Bludgeoning. When you score a Critical Result on your Strike Roll, your target suffers from the Guard Down Combat Condition until the start of your next turn.
Piercing. When you score a Critical Result on your Strike Roll, your target suffers from 5(T) Lethal Damage. This Damage Category and amount of damage dealt cannot be reduced by any means.
Slashing. When you score a Critical Result on your Strike Roll, reduce your target’s Strike Rolls and Dodge Rolls by -1(T) until the start of your next turn. This effect can stack up to -2(T).
Ranged Weapon. Ranged Weapon Categories can only be chosen by Ranged Weapons, and relate to the type of weapon it would be or relate to what occurs when you score a Critical Result on your Strike Roll. When you score a Critical Result with any type of Ranged Weapon, increase your Wound Roll by +3(T).
Ballistic. This category of Ranged Weapon uses the Ballistic Attack Type instead and cannot gain any Weapon Qualities. Instead, you select from a list of Ballistic Weapons shown below.
Standard. When you score a Critical Result on your Strike Roll, you do not spend any Ammo for this attacking maneuver and regain +1 Ammo.
Pinpoint. When you score a Critical Result on your Strike Roll, reduce your opponent’s Soak Value by -1(T) until the start of your next turn. This effect can stack up to -2(T).
High Power. When you score a Critical Result on your Strike Roll, increase your Wound Roll by +1d4(T).
When you first create a Weapon, select up to 3 Qualities for that weapon – Weapons start with a Craft TN of Very Easy and for each Quality selected this way, increase the Craft TN of that Weapon by +1. Qualities are how you design a Weapon and make it unique. They are split between ‘Generic Qualities’, ‘Melee Qualities’ and ‘Ranged Qualities’ – Melee Weapons cannot gain Ranged Qualities and Ranged Weapons cannot gain Melee Qualities.
You can only take each Quality once, unless specified otherwise.
Generic Qualities. Generic Qualities can be gained by all types of weapons.
Artisan. Increase your Wound Roll for an Armed Attack with this weapon by +1(T). This quality can be gained twice.
Resilient. Double the Break Value of this Weapon and increase its Hardness Value by +1.
Telekinetic. You can control this Weapon with your mind. You do not need hands free to wield this Weapon but it can still only be used to make an attack within your Melee Range if it’s a Melee Weapon. Once per Combat Round, you can use an Attacking Maneuver with a Weapon that has the Telekinetic Quality as an Instant Action. If you do, you cannot Ki Wager with this Attacking Maneuver. You can only wield one Weapon with the Telekinetic Quality at a time.
Lasting Wounds. If you successfully inflict damage with an Armed Attack with this Weapon, your Opponent will be afflicted with the DOT Combat Condition. At the start of their turn, for the next three Combat Rounds, they will suffer 1(T) Lethal Damage. This effect stacks up to 5(T).
Breaker. During Attack Declaration, you may choose to reduce the Wound Roll from an Attacking Maneuver using this Weapon by -2(bT). If you do and you successfully strike (hit) an Opponent with that Attacking Maneuver, you may select either their top layer of Apparel or a Weapon they are holding; reduce the selected target’s Break Value by -1.
Spiritual. Use your Spirit instead of Force for the Wound Roll. If you possess the Magic Warrior Talent, you may immediately replace any instance of this Weapon Quality on a weapon with another Weapon Quality upon gaining the Talent.
Hidden. Your weapon is difficult to observe and know when you will utilize it. At the start of each Combat Round, your opponents must make an Opposed Skill Check, their Perception against your Bluff or Stealth (whichever is higher). You roll once and your Opponents must beat that roll. If they pass, nothing happens to that opponent. If they fail, the failing opponent suffers from Guard Down on their Dodge Roll against your first attack with your Weapon this Combat Round.
Dynamic Quality. With the help of your ARC, you can create a custom Weapon Quality.
Melee Qualities. Melee Qualities can only be gained by Melee Weapons.
Variable. Once per Combat Round, you can spend an Instant Action during your turn to treat this Weapon as either One-Handed or Two-Handed instead of its natural Weapon Size.
Extending. You may increase your Melee Range by +3 for the duration of any Attacking Maneuver made with this Weapon.
Serrated Edge. If you successfully strike (hit) an Opponent, their Soak Value is reduced by -1(bT) until the start of your next turn. This effect can stack up to a maximum of -2(bT).
Dual Blade. Only Two-Handed Weapons can gain this Quality. When you would Sheathe this Weapon with the No Effort Maneuver, you may instead swap to using its other side. Create the other Melee Weapon after you’ve created this Melee Weapon. Your other Melee Weapon has the same Weapon Size as this Weapon but can be another Category. Additionally, it can have different Qualities but must also have the Dual Blade quality (you do not create another additional Weapon due to this).
Grappling. You can use the Grapple Maneuver even while your hands are occupied by wielding this Weapon. For example, this means that you can initiate a grapple even while using a Two-Handed Weapon or dual wielding two One-Handed Weapons and still be able to use this Weapon to attack.
Once per Combat Round, if you successfully strike (hit) an Opponent with an Armed Attack that uses this Weapon, you may use a Grappling Maneuver as an Out-of-Sequence Action.
Quick Sheathe. When you Unsheathe this Weapon, if your next Maneuver is an Attacking Maneuver, increase the Strike Roll of that Attacking Maneuver by +1(T). If you would Sheathe this Weapon, increase the Wound Roll of the next Attacking Maneuver you would make with this Weapon by +1(T) – this effect does not stack.
You may use the No Effort Maneuver to Unsheathe this Weapon any number of times per Combat Round.
Boomerang Return. If you use the Throw Maneuver to throw this Weapon at an Opponent, you can equip it as an Instant Action at the start of your next turn without having to pick it up.
Shish-Kebab. After cooking a Dish, you can skewer one portion of it (enough for one character to eat) on this Weapon, storing it for later. During a Combat Encounter, you may spend One Action to consume the Dish stored on this Weapon. In addition to the usual benefits of the Dish, you may immediately use a Power Surge Maneuver as an Out-of-Sequence Action.
You can only store one Dish at a time on a Weapon with the Shish-Kebab Quality.
Ranged Qualities. Ranged Qualities can only be gained by Ranged Weapons.
Versatile. This Ranged Weapon can be used as a Melee Weapon against targets within your Melee Range. Create a Melee Weapon following the typical rules with 2 Qualities, this Weapon is treated as that Weapon when used as a Melee Weapon. It must retain the same Weapon Size.
Scope. Increase the number of Squares before an opponent is at Long Range by +4.
Large Clip. You can select this Quality multiple times for a Ranged Weapon; increase the Ammo of this weapon by +2.

Precision Shot. When declaring a Called Shot, you can reduce the penalty to Strike by -2(T).
Support Battery. Reduce the Ki Point Cost for any Energy Attacking Maneuvers made with this Weapon by -1(T). You can take this Quality up to twice.
Burst Shot. When making any type of Attacking Maneuver with this Weapon, you may spend any amount of Ammo in addition to the usual cost to increase the Wound Roll by +3(T) for each Ammo spent (max. +9(T)).
If you would engage in a Duel Maneuver on an Attacking Maneuver benefiting from the effects of Burst Shot, instead increase your Wound Rolls for that Duel Maneuver by +1(T) for each Ammo spent (max. +3(T)).
Ballistic Ranged Weapons. All Ballistic Ranged Weapons do not apply your Tier of Power Extra Dice or Force Modifier for their Wound Roll. Additionally, you cannot select an Attacking Maneuver using a Ballistic Ranged Weapon for the Energy Charge Maneuver.
Instead of having 1 Ammo inherently, each Ballistic Ranged Weapon has their own set amount of Ammo listed in brackets after its name.
Flamethrower (5/5). A cone (see – Area Attacks, Battle Maps) is made in front of you that is 5 squares wide at its furthest point and 3 squares long. Make a single Strike and Wound Roll against all targets in that area, who all make their own defense. Any target that is successfully struck (hit) by the Flamethrower increases the amount of Damage they suffer from all Attacking Maneuvers by +2(T). This effect cannot stack.
Grenade (1/1). Select a Square, which if you choose a Square that you occupy, counts as if you selected all Squares that you occupy. All characters, except you, within 2 Squares of that Square must make a defense against your Strike Roll. You will only make a single Wound Roll against all those affected. If you manage to successfully deal damage to an opponent, they are knocked Prone. You cannot use the Called Shot Maneuver with this Weapon.
Handgun (6/6). If you successfully strike (hit) an opponent, decrease their Defense Value by -1(T) until the start of your next turn, this effect stacks to a maximum of -2(T).
Machine Gun (4/4). Instead of your base 1d10, roll 4d4 for your Wound Rolls using this weapon. If you manage to successfully deal damage to an Opponent with an Armed Attack using this Weapon, decrease their Soak Value by -1(T) until the start of your next turn. This effect can stack up to -2(T). You cannot use the Called Shot Maneuver with this Weapon.
Rifle (1/1). You suffer no penalty from Called Shots while using this weapon and increase the Natural Result from any Extra Dice gained through scoring a Critical Result by 2x (max. 10).

Shotgun (2/2). Increase your Wound Rolls for this weapon by +3. If you manage to successfully deal damage to an Opponent with an Armed Attack using this Weapon, treat their Soak Value as if it was -2(bT) lower until the start of your next turn. This effect does not stack. You cannot target an opponent more than 4 Squares away with an Attacking Maneuver using this Weapon.
Stun Gun (3/3). If you successfully strike (hit) an opponent, they suffer a penalty of -2(T) on their Strike Rolls until the end of their next turn. This effect does not stack. If you successfully strike (hit) an opponent with the Guard Down Combat Condition, they also gain the Prone Combat Condition. You cannot use the Called Shot Maneuver with this Weapon.
Bomb (Medium) [Tech]. When you create this Basic Item, you must select the Trigger. The Trigger for a Bomb can be Timed, Proximity or Remote. Depending on the type of Trigger, the Bomb will activate in different ways:
Timed. You may spend Two Actions to prime and place a Bomb with a Timed Trigger on a Square or Battle Jacket/Vehicle with no Pilot. Select any number of Combat Rounds (while in a Combat Encounter) or minutes and seconds (while outside of one), after that amount of Combat Rounds/time has passed, the Bomb will automatically explode as an Out-of-Sequence Action.
Proximity. You may spend One Action to prime and place a Bomb with a Proximity Trigger on a Square. Once any character lands on that Square, the Bomb will automatically explode as an Out-of-Sequence Action.
The Bomb will also explode as an Out-of-Sequence Action if a character moves across the Square it is placed on as part of their Movement, as long as they are not using the Rapid Movement Maneuver.
Remote. You may spend One Action to prime and place a bomb with a Remote Trigger on a Square or a Battle Jacket/Vehicle with no Pilot. When you create this Bomb, you must select a Remote Detonator you have access to for this Bomb to be connected to.
When a Bomb explodes, all characters either on the Square the Bomb is occupying or any adjacent Squares must make an Impulsive Save with a TN equal to the Craft TN for this Bomb. If they succeed, they manage to avoid any harm. If they fail, they immediately suffer 3d10(bT) damage – based on the creator’s Tier of Power at the time of creation.
When creating a Bomb, you may increase the Craft TN to Hard, Very Hard or Nearly Impossible. For each increase in Craft TN from Medium, increase the damage an opponent suffers on a failed Impulsive Save by +1d10(bT) and increase the AoE of the bomb by +1×1. For example, a Bomb with a Craft TN of Very Hard would inflict 5d10(bT) on a failed Impulsive Save and would endanger all characters within 3 Squares of the Bomb.
Optional (Your ARC decides if this is included): If you have access to a willing, unconscious or Defeated Android for over an hour outside of a Combat Encounter, you may place a Bomb inside of them by making a Science Skill Check, TN Very Hard. If you do, the Bomb must have the Remote Trigger and even without the Remote Detonator, an Android can self-destruct by spending Two Actions. If they do, instead of an Impulsive Save to avoid being harmed – the defending character must roll their Dodge Roll against the Android’s Energy Strike Roll and the damage inflicted by the Bomb is increased by all of their remaining Ki Points. If an Android’s Bomb explodes, they are instantly Defeated and killed.
Capsule (Medium) [Tech]. An item that can hold almost anything in it, keeping it in a compact, easy to carry manner. If you obtain an item that is not fitted with capsule technology, you can have it installed with the technology through the Crafting System. Just don’t try to put anything living in a capsule or to put a capsule in another capsule. Bad things happen.
You can spend One Action to throw the Capsule into a Square within 6 Squares from you. If you do, and there’s enough space for the size of the item, it appears instantly in that position with its central occupied square (if possible – any Square of your choice, if not) being the Square you threw the Capsule to.
Capsule House (Medium) [Tech]. An entire house that can be used from a capsule. They come in three size categories: Small, Medium or Large. When attempting to make a Medium or Large house through the Crafting system, increase the TN of this item by one category and two categories respectively.
A Capsule House has supplies and all the amenities of home. A small house can suitably allow for two people to stay in it, while a medium house can allow for five people to comfortably stay in it and a large house can accommodate ten characters without difficulty.
Communicator (Easy) [Tech]. With this device, you can communicate with anyone else that has a Communicator as long as they are within the same galaxy!
Scouters and Galactic Receivers count as Communicators for this effect and can contact Communicators or one another in the same way.
Cooking Utensils (Medium) [Tech]. A container, usually stored in a capsule, that contains various equipment used for cooking, spices, sauces and some complimentary food items used to make more delicious meals.
When you gain this item, select up to 4 Standard Ingredients. They are stored along with your Cooking Utensils. Additionally, while using your Cooking Utensils, increase the Dice Score of your Cooking Skill Checks by +2.
Crystal Ball (N/A). A fortune teller’s ball that can be made to float with magical abilities, allowing you to ride upon it or use it to see far away things. You may use the Second Sight Magical Ability through a Crystal Ball without paying its Ki Point Cost. If you do not know the ability, you can make a Use Magic Skill Check, TN Hard. If you fail, nothing happens. If you pass, you may use the Second Sight Magical Ability through the Crystal Ball even if you don’t know it. While using this item, when making a Clairvoyance or Use Magic Skill Check, increase your result by +2 and you may use your Spirit instead of your Insight for the Clairvoyance Skill Check.
If attempted to be created through Magical Materialization, the TN for this item is Easy.
Dirty Magazine (Very Easy). A book featuring erotic images, which can be very useful in persuading more perverted characters! A Dirty Magazine can be presented to another character by spending One Action. If that character is not pure of heart and is being presented with a magazine that matches their orientation, they must make a Morale Saving Throw, TN Medium. If they pass, nothing happens. If they fail, they must spend all of their Actions on their next turn reading from the magazine.
Your ARC may set the TN to Very Hard if a character is notably perverted. This is a gag item, use it appropriately.
Dragon Radar (Very Hard) [Tech]. A portable device that helps you locate Dragon Balls by scanning for the electromagnetic pulse emitted by them. Notably, the radar gives a visual representation of depth and height, but it doesn’t give actual values for those metrics. Pressing the button on the top causes the view to zoom in and show a more detailed map of the area, helping narrow down the precise location. The radar can locate Dragon Balls at great distances, such as across a continent, planet, or even the universe. Your ARC will decide the maximum range for your radar based on the game. The minimum range for your radar is 10 squares.
Poison Vial (Hard) [Tech]. When you create or gain this Basic Item, it has 1d6 Poison Drops. You may spend One Action and 1 Poison Drop to Poison a Weapon, an Ingredient or a Dish. A Poisoned Ingredient or Dish inflicts the Poisoned Combat Condition to anyone who eats it.
A Poisoned Weapon inflicts the Poisoned Combat Condition if it successfully deals Lethal Damage to an Opponent with an Attacking Maneuver or if you knock an Opponent through a Health Threshold with an Attacking Maneuver using that Weapon.
A Weapon stops being Poisoned at the end of the current Combat Encounter.
Remote Detonator (Medium) [Tech]. You can spend One Action to activate all Bombs connected to this Remote Detonator.
Optional (Your ARC decides if this is included): If you are aware of how a Bomb is made, either through receiving their blueprints or some other important schematic, you may make a Science Skill Check, TN Very Hard when making a Remote Detonator to make it connected to that Bomb, even if you did not create it.
Robotic Minions (Hard) [Tech]. Create a Minion using the Minion Creation rules. Their Race must be Android and they gain the Wonders of Technology Racial Trait in addition to those gained through the Minion Creation rules.
Scout Scope (Medium) [Tech]. You can spend Three Actions to attempt and scan the strength of another character, or you can scan the entire planet in a certain direction to look for notable power levels. Any character that is using the Holding Back Maneuver or is aware of the scanning can make a Concealment Skill Check, TN Medium. If they succeed, nothing happens and they automatically succeed on any further Concealment Skill Checks to avoid being spotted by a Scout Scope for the remainder of the Combat Encounter or for the next hour – as long as they immediately use the Holding Back Maneuver or maintain their current (or higher) number of stacks of Holding Back if they already had any number of Holding Back stacks. If their number of Holding Back stacks would decrease below their current number, they lose this benefit. If they fail, you become aware of their current Tier of Power and their current location. If their current Tier of Power is the same as their base Tier of Power, you also learn of their Power Level.
Sealing Talisman (Hard). A charm used to make yourself feel free of evil. You can spend One Action to apply it to a container holding a character sealed with the Mafuba Magical Ability. If you do so, they are sealed indefinitely until the seal is removed. The seal can be removed by an attack with a Called Shot or by spending One Action to remove it when adjacent to the container.
If attempted to be created through Magical Materialization, the TN for this item is Medium.
Shield (Medium). A Shield is a Basic Item that can be wielded by holding it in one or two hands. While wielding a Shield, increase the Dice Score of your Strike Rolls for the Block and Deflect options of the Parry Maneuver by +1(T).
A Shield has 10(bT) Life Points – based on the Tier of Power of the Shield’s creator at the time of creation. If you would use the Guard option of the Parry Maneuver, you may deduct the Damage from the Shield’s Life Points instead (before deducting your Soak Value). If a Shield’s Life Points would reach 0, destroy it. Any Damage that would exceed the Life Points of a Shield is dealt to you as Direct Damage – this Damage Category cannot be reduced through any means.
If you are wielding a Shield in two hands, once per Combat Round, you may use the Guard option of the Parry Maneuver without spending a Counter Action – if you do, you must deduct the Damage from the Shield’s Life Points.
Shields have a Hardness Value of 2.
Shock Remote (Hard) [Tech]. When this item is made, select a Shock Collar Accessory. When a character is wearing your selected Shock Collar Accessory, you can attempt to stop them from using any kind of Maneuver by spending a Counter Action in response to their attempt to use that Maneuver.
If you do, your target must make a Corporeal Saving Throw (Very Hard). If they succeed, nothing happens and the Maneuver continues as normal. If they fail, they fail to use that Maneuver and cannot attempt to use that Maneuver again until the end of their turn. If it was an Attacking Maneuver, they just cannot use an Attacking Maneuver of that same Attack Type. For instance, if they were attempting to use a Basic Attack with the Crushing Profile, they could still use a Basic Attack of the Sphere Profile.
If the target is currently in Rage, increase their Corporeal Save Dice Score by +1(T) against this effect.
Smoke Bomb (Medium) [Tech]. You may spend One Action to throw the Smoke Bomb at any Square within 6 Squares of you. Create a 5×5 Square cloud of steam (with the chosen Square at the center) in which all other characters suffer from Limited Sight (see – Sight & Illumination). This cloud lasts until the end of your next turn.
Tool Kit (Medium). All the items needed for crafting, messing with machinery and otherwise allowing your brilliance to shine in a more technical world.
Special Items are unique items that have unique- typically magical- abilities. Special weapons do not suffer from Break Values unless specifically stated to.
Bag of Senzu Beans. A bag containing the miraculous senzu beans. It costs One Action to throw one to another character who is not at Long Range. If you throw a senzu bean to another character, make an Insight Ability Check, TN Medium. If you fail, the senzu bean misses them and lands on a Square on the opposite side of them, 1d4 squares away.
Bags of Senzu Beans come in various sizes:
Small. Roll a 1d4, that’s how many Senzu Beans are in the bag.
Standard. Roll a 1d6, that’s how many Senzu Beans are in the bag.
Large. Roll a solid 1d10, that’s how many Senzu Beans are in the bag.
Extra Large. Roll a 2d6, that’s how many Senzu Beans are in the bag.
Seed(s) from the Tree of Might. These small, green seeds can give way to the growth of a Tree of Might. When planted on a planet with sufficient life force, a Tree of Might will begin to grow. It takes a total of ten hours for a Tree of Might to grow to a point where it is able to bear fruit. When a tree is fully grown, roll a 1d6 – this is the total number of Fruit from the Tree of Might that will be created.
The Tree of Might, once grown, has a Hardness Value of Two, 100(bT) Life Points and has a Soak Value of 10(bT). All damage inflicted against a Tree of Might is considered Standard Damage. Before it is properly grown, any attack that deals over 100 damage will destroy it.
Saibamen Capsule. Each Saibamen Capsule has 1d8 Saibamen Seeds inside of it.
You can spend One Action to plant a Saibamen Seed. At the start of the next Combat Round, all Saibamen Seeds will sprout on any Square within 2 Squares of you (you decide) and turn into a number of Saibamen equal to the number of seeds planted.
The power of your planted Saibamen is dependent on the quality of the soil. You may make a TN Hard Investigation or Survival Check (whichever is higher) to figure out the soil quality of the area you’re in (see the Soil Quality table for its effects). Generally speaking, planets with higher life force will have higher soil quality. Due to their variable strength and wild behavior, Saibamen can only be controlled by characters that are stronger than them or skilled enough to handle them. When your Saibamen spawn, roll an Intimidation or Animal Handling Skill Check, against a TN decided by the Soil Quality table. If you fail, the Saibamen become enemies controlled by your ARC. If you succeed, you may control them as Minions.
Soil Quality Table
Skill Check TN
Tier of Power (Breakthrough)
Attribute Modifier Increases(AG/FO/TE/IN)
Extremely Good Quality
Follow the Minion Creation rules for your Saibamen when you first gain access to the Saibamen Capsule – all Saibamen created are exact copies of this created Minion. There are two exceptions to the use of the Minion Creation Rules:
The Saibamen belong to the ‘Saibaman’ Custom Species Race and instead of possessing 1 Body and 1 Mind Racial Trait, have access to the Combative Organism, Racial Technique (Self-Destruct! – see below), and Savage Creature Racial Traits. Additionally, all Saibamen possess the Acid Spray! Signature Technique (see below).
Saibamen have a Force Score of 8, an Agility Score of 6, an Insight Score of 4, and Attribute Scores of 2 for all other Attributes before any Attribute Points are spent.
Acid Spray! – Ultimate Signature Attack
Advantages: Terrain Destruction, Penetration, Damage Over Time x3
Power Pole. A magical staff able to change its length to almost any size. This Weapon is a Two-Handed Weapon with the Bludgeoning Category. It benefits from the Artisan (2), Breaker and Quick Sheathe Qualities.
Additionally, when making a basic Physical Attack with the Power Pole, you can treat your Melee Range as if it was 8 squares.
Brave Sword. An enchanted blade, made to stand up against the most evil of opponents. This Weapon is a Two-Handed Weapon with the Slashing Category. It benefits from the Artisan (2), Variable and Lasting Wounds Qualities.

Z-Sword. An ancient and extremely heavy sword that possesses a sealed figure within it. This Weapon is a Two-Handed Weapon with the Slashing Category. It benefits from the Artisan (2), Variable and the Breaker Qualities.
To pick up or wield this Weapon, you must pass a Force Ability Check, TN Nearly Impossible (you must attempt this same Ability Check each time you pick up or wield this Weapon). If you drop this Weapon or it is Broken, you gain the Doff Bonus as if you had doffed High Grade Weights. Unlike most Special Items, this Weapon has a Break Value of 10 and can be destroyed. If it is destroyed, the character sealed within the sword will appear in an unoccupied square within your Melee Range of their choice.
Additionally, increase your Wound Roll by an Extra Dice equal to the Tier of Power Extra Dice of the character sealed within the sword.
Blood Ruby Necklace. This item is an Accessory. While it is worn, if you enter the Rage Combat Condition or get knocked through the Injured (or lower) Health Threshold, you must immediately use the Transformation Maneuver as an Out-of-Sequence Action to enter the Monster Form Alternate Form, even if you do not have access to it.
If you enter the Monster Form Transformation this way, you must apply the effects of Beast of Wrath and you cannot leave the Monster Form Transformation unless you are Defeated. Additionally, you cannot remove the Blood Ruby Necklace while in that Transformation.
If you did not have access to the Monster Form Alternate Form before applying the effects of this Special Item, you lose access to that Transformation when you leave it.
Flying Nimbus. A magical cloud that can only be ridden by those who are pure of heart. The Flying Nimbus is a Vehicle that has a Vehicle Volume of Minor but a Square Occupancy of 2×1 Squares and the Output of this Vehicle is High. This Vehicle has the Vehicle Qualities of Open, Hikou, Remote Controlled, Autopilot and Turbo Boost. The Autopilot Quality does not use communicators but instead, you are automatically the A-Rider for the Flying Nimbus the instant you gain possession of it. Your allies are also considered the A-Rider, if they are Pure of Heart.
To enter this Vehicle, you must be Pure of Heart. Additionally, if it is not Destroyed, it will heal fully within an hour outside of a Combat Encounter.
Hero’s Flute. A magical flute that carries the wishes of the people. You can play the flute by spending One Action. You do not need to make a Performance Skill Check, as the flute plays its own melody when blown into. After playing the flute, you gain a barrier that protects you from harm – reduce all damage you take by -3(T) until the start of your next turn.
Additionally, the flute can have a Magical Ability infused into it. Even if you do not have access to the Magical Ability or meet the requirements, you can use it by spending Two Actions to play the flute instead of paying the Action or Ki Point cost of the Magical Ability.
Potara Earring. A set of magical earrings worn by the Supreme Kai that can allow two people wearing a single set on opposite ears to combine into one supremely powerful warrior!
Crafting. Scientists and those of high IQ have the ability to create almost anything when not under pressure. If you are not in combat, have sufficient time, and have the resources, you can create a great deal of equipment; all Basic Items can be created along with Vehicles, Battle Jackets, Weapons and Apparel. If you meet the conditions described above, you may begin crafting at any time allowed by your ARC outside of a Combat Encounter. The amount of time any particular item takes to craft will be decided by the ARC, though generally things like Vehicles and Battle Jackets should take a large amount of time and typically thus only be gained through large periods of time away from combat (such as through Downtime). Your ARC may decide to make things more complicated, requiring you to find suitable materials and potentially even blueprints (see: Adventure rules).
To craft an item, you must simply make a Craft Skill Check against the Craft TN of your intended item. If you fail, you cannot attempt to make that item again until after your next Combat Encounter (unless you spend a Karma Point to try and make it again). If you succeed, you create the intended item. You cannot benefit from Skill Ranks on crafting rolls that you did not select through the Encompassing Skill rules.
Crafting Technology. When crafting any Basic Item (including Accessories) that is [Tech], a Vehicle or a Battle Jacket, you must first make a Science Skill Check against their Craft TN. If you fail, you may still continue to attempt and make the typical Craft Skill Check to create it but the TN is increased by +3. If you succeed, continue with your Craft Skill Check as normal but afterwards you also gain a Blueprint.
A Blueprint is a proof that you have created a piece of [Tech], a Vehicle or a Battle Jacket and is a tangible Basic Item. While you have access to a Blueprint of any piece of [Tech], Vehicle or Battle Jacket you can perfectly replicate it by making a Craft Skill Check without needing to make a Science Skill Check first. If you do, the Vehicle or Battle Jacket must be perfectly identical to the original that created the Blueprint.
Fine Tuning. If you have a Vehicle, while outside of combat, you may attempt to make a Craft Skill Check to improve that Vehicle. Select a higher Craft TN for your Vehicle and make your Craft Skill Check against it. If you fail, nothing happens. If you succeed, gain a number of CP to spend immediately on that Vehicle equal to the difference in CP between the original Craft TN for your Vehicle and the Craft TN you had just succeeded on. You may use this CP to increase the Output or gain additional Vehicle Qualities.
