Vehicles

Vehicles range from simple motorcycles to cars and trucks. Statistics for specific vehicles are detailed below.

A vehicle stat block contains the following entries.

Name: This lists the vehicle’s name.

Price: This entry lists the vehicle’s price in gil. The availability of some vehicles might be restricted, and a player must ask the GM what is available for purchase.

Size: This entry lists the vehicle’s size, followed by its dimensions.

Speed: The speed entry first lists the vehicle’s drive speed, followed by its full speed, and concludes with its speed in miles per hour for overland movement over the terrain type for which the vehicle was designed.

Fuel: This entry lists the type of fuel the vehicle uses and the maximum amount of miles a full tank will last. Generally a full tank will last 10x the maximum speed of a vehicle in miles. Shinfuel costs 1 gil per mile and Metefuel costs 1.5 gil per mile.

  • Shinfuel: A fuel source that is created from boiling oil, that forms over several years from the decay of bones and fossils from beneath the ground, and separates out specific liquids and minerals. It can be mass produced as well as found in large quantities. However the use of said oil isn’t incredible efficient, nor does it last long when compared to Metefuel. The quantity means it is cheap, though it is not renewable and does harm to the environment.
  • Metefuel: A fuel source that is created by superheating crystals with magic infused liquids, forming a thick dark-blue liquid. The crystals used are generally ones that grow in caverns due to the forming of minerals in the air and absorbing local magic particles. To create Metefuel it takes a considerable amount of time, though is quite renewable and able to be grown. It is highly efficient, and lasts longer than Shinfuel but is often more expensive to fill a full tank, especially when the vehicles that can use this fuel require specific engines that cost more upfront.

AC and CMD: These entries indicate the Base Armor Class and Combat Maneuver Defense for the vehicle. Modified by +1 to AC and CMD for every 2 ranks in the driver’s Drive skill.

Cover: This entry indicates the type of cover the vehicle gives its driver and passengers. This might vary based on circumstances—a passenger hanging out of a window to fire a weapon doesn’t get the full benefit of the vehicle’s cover.

HP: This entry lists the vehicle’s Hit Points. If the vehicle is reduced to or below the number of HP listed in parentheses, it’s broken. While broken, the vehicle takes a –2 penalty to its AC and collision DC. It imposes a -2 penalty to Drive skill checks and its full speed and mph speed are halved. If a vehicle is reduced to 0 HP, it’s wrecked. A wrecked vehicle can’t be driven, and it might be difficult or impossible to repair.

Hardness: As an object, a vehicle has hardness. Any damage a vehicle takes is reduced by its hardness.

Attack: This entry indicates an attack the vehicle has, the damage it deals, and the base Reflex save DC to avoid it (if any). Most vehicles have only collision attacks, which deal bludgeoning damage. (See Vehicle Collision Damage and the ram and the run over action for more on collisions.)

Modifiers: The vehicle imposes these modifiers on the attack rolls and listed skill checks of its driver and passengers. The attack roll penalty worsens at full speed, as indicated in parentheses.

Passengers: If the vehicle can carry extra passengers, this entry lists how many the vehicle can hold in addition to the driver.
