Biotics

To become a Biotic:
If you choose to receive training in Biotics within your chosen career refer to this section.

Training normally costs 20,000cr. though you may roll on your career’s injury table to see how much of that is paid for by them. Your biotic skill starts at 7 but comes with a drawback, roll on the drawback table below to see what it is. If this is your first career term you start with Telekinesis 0, Kinetic Fields 0, and Spacial Distortion 0, and three skills chosen from the service table. Otherwise you may select one biotic skill to receive at 0.

Biotic Table:
This can be rolled on as part of a career instead of local tables.
1 Telekinesis
2 Kinetic Fields
3 Spatial Distortion
4 Pick any Biotic skill (possibly physical enhancement?)
5 Biotic skill Increase
6 Biotic skill Increase

*In any event or mishap that calls for a physical combat skill roll, a biotic skill may be rolled instead.
