|Cyborg stands for "Cybernetic Organism". They are born as biological
humanoids, and augmented with technology until they cannot live
independently of it. Cyborgs living in Aarchon after the shattering are
generally composed of standard model android parts integrated with life
magic by skilled templar techs. This technology is increasingly hard to
come by in the known pocket of existence, since cybernetic technology
cannot be reproduced, only found. Cyborgs have little inherent magical or
spiritual ability, but have great physical and computational facilities.
Cyborgs are able to channel their cold fusion power cores in
controlled outbursts of electric current, electrocuting their enemies.
Their muscles and reflexes are preternaturally enhanced by hormonal
injections, and optical implants allow them to zoom in on targets beyond
the normal range of human vision. Cyborg do not need to eat or drink,
their biological needs are met artificially. Upgrading cyborg statistics
is very expensive, as components are rare, but unlike fully biological
organisms, they may be upgraded to the full potential of their model,
regardless of their initial configuration. Cyborgs have strong immune
systems and their positronic pathways help their organic lobes resist mind
attacks. Good and evil spiritual attacks have limited effectiveness.
Acid and water corrode their mechanical components.
** Cyborgs train differently than other races. They gain a flat 3 points of
their stat for each train. They can train all of their stats up to their
racial maximums. Cyborgs also require gold to buy components to train.
