Teleport Packs

Postby Ashwatzi » Thu May 28, 2009 11:48 am

Instead of having jump packs, you could incorporate telepacks with limited uses, since there might be lack of good working batteries....something like that. Bigger telepacks could also be used by larger units, or snipers maybe to get into certain spots, or they could have a cloaking device that could act like a Veil of Tears that is used by Harlequins. My 4 cents.

Maybe Psycho-telekinetic accelerator engines. The power comes from the battery pack, but a guidance system sophisticated enough to allow such transport would take up a considerable amount of space. Since only the operator is the only one being transported, with the right Psycho-conditioning, he or she can be transported with a reasonable degree of safety.

Think of the teleporting as deep-striking. Roll a scatter dice, if they land on a terrain piece... ouch.

Have these only for the "supa commandos"

I don't think teleportation packs is a good idea. besides, most tech got vaped by the EMPs. Alot of other technology stuff was lost. wouldn't it make sense if the telepacks (teleportation packs) were simply destroyed or no one remembers how to use them?

OOO! Wasn't the Philidelphia Project the one were they teleported that ship about 2 feet and the crew was tangled in the hull?

EMPs are not a death sentence! NORAD is safe from EMPs and Nuclear Warheads because its under a mountain. The superpowers must have had underground armories or development labs.

The few survivors of the higher-ups of the super powers would know where they are hidden. The idea that much of the tech survived is plausible. Anyway, blueprints and a few computers would have survived too. They would give access to much tech.

Surviving computers or Data caches would make good objectives.

True some might have been destroyed by EMPs or nukes but you can't say everyone who knows how to use them died. most people would know generally how to use them, like people would know how to use a gun.

No, they may have been many nukes! The event wasn't a nuclear apocalypse though.

No, Matt said that nukes were no longer effective due to the effectiveness of highly developed weaponry, so most people discarded the nukes.
