Bionic Respiratory System (Cybernetic)

Common bionic lungs and implanted respiratory systems mimic the action of human lungs and keep the body supplied with oxygen. Such characters gain a +20 bonus to Toughness Tests made to resist airborne toxins and gas weapons.

  • Poor bionic lungs offer the same benefits as the Common system. However, they are raucously loud affairs and characters suffer a –20 penalty to Stealth Tests. A generally poor oxygen supply to the body means that the character suffers a –10 penalty on all Tests involving strenuous physical activity.
  • Good bionic lungs count as a full life support system—thus if for any reason the user’s own respiratory system fails, his bionic lungs keep his blood oxygenated—and their presence can be unnoticeable if designed to be so.
