Wires And Fences

Wires and Fences Information

Wire Damage: Impact Armor offers one-half (round down) protection versus this damage.

Cutting Wires: Cutting wires with clippers requires a Strength (6) Test. Monowire only requires a Strength (5) Test to cut, but if the loose ends are not secured, a Quickness (6) Test is required to avoid being hit by the whipping end(s) for 10S damage.

Electrified Fences/Wires: A character touching such items will suffer 4D Stun damage as if from a Shock Weapon. The character must also suceed a Body (6) Test to remove their paralyzed hands from the fence/wire, or else they will continue to take 4D at the end of each Combat Turn. A character rendered unconscious will take one last 4D zap before
their muscles relax and they slump to the ground. Proper grounding and insulation can reduce this damage.

Fences: Fences may be climbed (see rules in SRComp) or characters may cut through them with clippers at a speed of (Strength/2, round up) meters per minute.
