    The Matrix

    Post  Robyo on Wed Jun 10, 2015 11:26 pm




    Player Characters live in Prime Reality for the day-to-day lives. They may enter the Matrix using an Avatar, which is typically a digital facsimile of the character. A successful Deception check allows characters to switch the appearance of their avatars.

    Stats of an Avatar are based on the  character's mental/social stats:
    Avatar / Character
    DEX = INT
    STR = WIS
    CON = CHA

    INT = INT
    WIS = WIS
    CHA = CHA


    Avatars that sustain overwhelming damage (0 HP)  typically result in "de-rezzing," and the character becomes Incapacitated for 10 minutes, subtract Con modifier in minutes. Characters that sustain Massive Damage, must make a Con save or be Stunned.

    There are programmable poisons and weapons within the matrix, known as Black Ice, which is designed to kill characters through their avatar.

    Psychic Damage sustained inside the matrix goes simultaneously to both the avatar and the character's hit points, and thus can be lethal.


    The Matrix is a digital simulation. It allows users to explore programmed worlds, exchange data, socialize, and satiate the pleasure centers of the mind. Most of the hardware for the matrix (processors servers, etc) is located within the the Ethereal Plane. The colonization of etherspace (known as Etherscope)is hazardous. Most of Etherscope was built by robots, and is maintained with robots, using human supervision via avatars, of course.


    The Deep Web (otherwise known as Dark Web, Shadow Web) is a mysterious and uncontrolled zone buried inside the matix.


    Because Etherspace can be accessed from any place in prime reality, the matrix has become the default hub for instant communication. Someone on Jupiter can speak to someone on Earth in real time, using matrix transmissions. However, the matrix is also highly infiltrated with spyware and tracking programs. Because of this, many folks opt to use radio waves for interplanetary transmissions. A slower, but possibly more secure and reliable communication medium.
