Weapons and Equipment

Black Imperium Helmet
The helmet is PD2, DR 25 and gives the effect of 360-degree Vision and Dark Vision, but also gives a -2 to any check involving combat, including combat rolls.

Science-Fiction Weapons
Blast Pistol (Generic): Beam Weapons skill, imp 6d, Acc 6, 2 pounds, ROF 3 (non-auto), 20 shots, recoil -1;  
Special: When rolls are made for damage using sci-fi weapons, they always cause 1 point of damage per die that bypasses up to 100 DR on a roll of 2-3, and 2 points if the die rolls 4-6. This is part of the damage rolled, not extra damage.  For example, if 6d is rolled and the results are 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6, the damage is 17, and 6 points of the 17 will ignore DR.

Armor, Generic Science Fiction
Rebel/Medium (PD 3, DR 25, 20 lbs.)

Background: The Black Imperium is mostly made of these religious warriors, who are extremely dedicated to their cause, religion and leader, the Goulmon. While not clones (as they are often called), the race is given growth enhancers that cause them to age and become adults at twice the normal rate. Black Imperium soldiers have no personal lives, as it is against their religion, but instead stay fit and socialize with each other. Their religion calls for them to conquer worlds and cleanse them so that they will be ready for the return of the “Formers”, the mythological first race of god-like beings. They are not bullies and do not enjoy pain, but follow the faith as true believers. Not mindless, they can be bargained with, intimidated or tricked, but it is difficult.
