GEAR-HEAD

A general outline of the class and what to expect from it goes here.

Level 0

What you get when generating a new Gear-head character.
- 2 Passive Abilities, with a choice of how one functions.
- Learn 3 Active Abilities out of a list of 6.
- Choose 1 Overdrive Ability out of a list of 2.
- Choose 2 Dazed Ability out of a list of 4.

Passives

[P] Custom Firearm: Gear-heads revolve around firearms, and more specifically, custom, self built experimental ones, which are constantly being tweaked and modified. When you create a new Gear-head, you get to create a customize firearm. Select one of each gun part to get your final firearm. Anytime the Gear-head takes a Full Rest, they can change which parts are used to make the customized gun. Weapon enchantments are capable of being transferred onto the custom firearm from other magical weapons. The custom firearm also generates Pin momentum on basic attacks.
Clip: [6 Damage, 4 Ammo, 2 WGT], [8 Damage, 3 Ammo, 4 WGT], or [10 Damage, 2 Ammo, 6WGT]
Barrel: [1d10 potency die], [1d8 potency die, 10 Critical], or [1d8 potency die, -1MP cost]
Stock: [After Defending, the firearm's next attack gains +1 potency die], [On Defend, gain +2 Drive], or [On Defend, generate your choice of Rush+1, Pin+1 or Launch+1]

[P] Attachments: Many Gear-head abilities have an Attachment listing. When you use an ability with an attachment, you add that attachment to your custom firearm, regardless of the weapon you used the ability with. Your custom firearm then benefits from the effects of the attachment entry for the remainder of the battle, or until the attachment part is discarded. Certain other abilities may consume attachments in order to power the ability up in some way. You can only benefit from an attachment once; further attempts to apply an additional attachment of the same type while it's already in play have no effect, though they can be reapplied if they were discarded. All attachments are removed at the end of the battle.
