Interface Zero Campaign

I will be putting my campaign notes and unpublished equipment on this page. Much of this is rough, and unfinished. I need to supply damage and tables in some cases. But Enjoy!

My personal IZ2.5 Rules. 

      OK, so when we started writing, it was under a different developer, he wanted big numbers, I was all in on that, since I KNEW we were going to have Smartguns, and cybernetics to offset high armor numbers. But I wrote out the Kevlar rules, since I never enjoyed the way they were written, and 77 years in the future, Kevlar will probably be replaced by better personal armor (we were seeing improvements on that a long time ago. Armor which reduces AP just isn't fast or fun, bit furious though. So I threw it out knowing I was going to increase the other armors.Weapons had an increase, but that was cool too. The main reason for the increases was so there was a very large difference between a hand cannon and a zip pistol. Golem mechs, Cyborgs running around with heavy armor. We did stay in the normal range for armor originally, the normal range including going up to advanced battle armor. 






Mjolnir will be updated. It was edited after I submitted it. It is listed as an AMR, an Anti-Material Rifle. An Anti-Material rifle is effectively a large caliber, anti-armor sniper rifle. When it was published, it was turned into a machine gun, for reasons unbeknownst to me.

Here's the original write-up, which I will be using in both my IZ games and Savage Rifts games. It is ROF: 1.

Laser weapons lose 1d die of damage when firing through a Refractor grenade’s smoke.


AMNG Anti-Materiel NanoGrenades
The grey goo grenades feature destructive nanites that have an active time of seconds. They are anti-materiel weapons programed to break the chemical bonds of metals and plastics. Universal laws prevent programming of nanites for the destruction of living matter, though rumors persist of NanoGrenades which have been programmed for such nefarious purposes.

AMNG will destroy 1 point of armor bonus (2 points on a raise) for each successful attack. 
Targetlock Rounds
This smart round interfaces with a smartgun to program a specific target. The round then makes minor corrections in flight to hit the target. While extremely expensive and difficult to find, these munitions make those hard shots look easy. Once programmed, the round will actively seek that specific target.


After aiming for a round, the entire clip of ammunition is programmed with the aim bonus. No other target will be hit by the round, including innocent bystanders.


Currently only available to rifle rounds and large caliber pistol rounds (10mm caliber and up). As well as Gyrojet munitions.
Cost: 500 credits each.
