software (often called "featware") is usually embedded in the robot's central processor or "brain" and can be salvaged after the robot is destroyed (see Robot Resurrection
sidebar. This is not true of feat
webs, however (see below).
To write feat software from scratch, a character must possess whatever feats
the software is designed to emulate. The character obtains the necessary software components by making a Wealth
check against the software's purchase DC
. He must then succeed at a Computer Use check (DC 30) after investing 12 hours in the software's creation.
Regardless of the quality of its feat
software, a robot cannot emulate a feat
if it does not meet the feat
Sophisticated emulation software encased in a thin but durable plastic casing, a feat
progit is installed in the robot's central processing unit and enables the robot to gain a single feat
A robot can have a number of feat
progits equal to 1 + one-third its Hit Dice (rounded down).
progit can be erased and reprogrammed with 12 hours of work and a successful Computer Use check (DC 30).
A feat net consists of a series of interlocking programs that allow the robot to emulate multiple feats
. A feat net holds as many as four feats
A robot can have multiple feat nets, but the total number of feats
a robot can have installed cannot exceed 1 + one-third the robot's Hit Dice (rounded down).
The biggest advantage of the feat
net over the feat
progit is that you only make one Wealth
check to purchase a feat
net, whereas buying individual feat
progits requires separate Wealth
checks. A feat
net can be reprogrammed one feat
at a time. Replacing one feat
with another requires 12 hours of work and a successful Computer Use check (DC 30).
15 (one feat), 17 (two feats
), 19 (three feats
), 20 (four feats
A feat web allows a robot with ordinary class levels to gain feats
as normal for its class. The feat web expands as the robot advances in level. An integral component of the robot, it cannot be salvaged if the droid is destroyed.
A feat web's feats
cannot be altered except through level advancement.
10 + one-half the base purchase DC
of the robot's frame.
