ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (EX): You construct an artificial intelligence (or AI), a sophisticated program of self-motivated code that you can access for help in a variety of endeavors. This AI is the product of your own genius, far more advanced and complicated than any available for sale to consumers (though it falls short of being truly self-aware), and only you know the secrets of its creation and operation. Your AI can take one of two forms: a drone or an exocortex. You must pick one of these forms upon taking your first level of mechanic, and once this choice is made, it cannot be changed. You begin play with an exocortex, an artificial processor that interacts with and augments your biological brain’s cognitive functions, which can aid you in a variety of tasks, from combat to digital infiltration. Your exocortex is implanted within your physical body or brain, similar to a piece of cybernetic hardware, allowing your AI to access your mind and feed you information. As you gain levels, your exocortex advances in sophistication and processing power—see Exocortex on page 79. Only you can access or interact with your exocortex.
COMBAT TRACKING (EX): Your exocortex provides you with enhanced combat ability, granting you proficiency with heavy armor and longarms. At 3rd level, you gain weapon specialization in longarms just as if your class granted proficiency. As a move action during combat, you can designate a foe for your exocortex to track. As long as that target is in sight, the exocortex feeds you telemetry, vulnerabilities, and combat tactics, allowing you to make attacks against that target as if your base attack bonus from your mechanic levels were equal to your mechanic level. Designating another target causes you to immediately lose this bonus against the previous target.
MEMORY MODULE (EX): You can use your exocortex’s memory module to enhance your own knowledge. Once per day, as a reaction while not in combat, you can reroll a failed skill check (see page 243) to recall knowledge (see page 143). In addition, your exocortex grants you the Skill Focus feat as a bonus feat. You can’t use your exocortex’s memory module while combat tracking is activated. Every time you gain a mechanic level, you can rebuild your exocortex’s memory module, replacing the exocortex’s bonus Skill Focus feat with Skill Focus in a different skill.
BYPASS (EX): You are skilled at getting inside computer systems and electronic devices. At 1st level, you gain a +1 insight bonus to Computers and Engineering skill checks. At 5th level, every 4 levels thereafter, and at 20th level, this bonus increases by 1.
CUSTOM RIG (EX): You have created a customized toolkit you can use to hack systems and items. Your custom rig can be configured to take up an upgrade slot on your armor or can be installed as a cybernetic augmentation system in your brain (though it can be combined with a datajack for the same price as installing a datajack normally), your eyes, or an arm. For more information on augmentations, see Chapter 7: Equipment. Alternatively, you can configure it to be a handheld device, meaning that you must retrieve it and hold it to use it effectively. While using this rig, you always count as having the appropriate tool or basic kit for any Computers or Engineering skill check you attempt. Some mechanic tricks (see page 71) and drone mods (see page 77) require the use of a custom rig. In addition, you can use your custom rig as a Mk I comm unit (see Chapter 7: Equipment). Finally, if you have a drone, you can use your custom rig to communicate over an encrypted channel with your drone to issue commands to its AI or directly control it at a range of 2,500 feet.
WEAPON SPECIALIZATION (EX):
Energy Shield (Ex) As a standard action, you can use your custom rig to activate an energy shield around yourself. This shield provides you with a number of temporary Hit Points equal to your Intelligence modifier plus your mechanic level. The shield remains active for 1 minute per mechanic level or until all of its temporary Hit Points are depleted, whichever comes first. Once used, you cannot use this ability again until you spend 1 Resolve Point to regain Stamina Points after a 10-minute rest; your shield automatically shuts off during this period of rest.
Theme & Racial Abilities::
ROBOTICIST KNOWLEDGE: You’re obsessed with the intricacies of constructs and how automated machines function. You can easily identify what a machine’s function is and have an easier time attempting to access the internal programming of mechanized life-forms. Reduce the DC of Engineering checks to identify creatures and technology by 5. Computers is a class skill for you, though if it is a class skill from a class you take at 1st level, you instead gain a +1 bonus to Computers checks. In addition, you gain an ability adjustment of +1 to Intelligence at character creation.
CHEEK POUCHES: Ysoki can store up to 1 cubic foot of items weighing up to 1 bulk in total in their cheek pouches, and they can transfer a single object between hand and cheek as a swift action. A ysoki can disgorge the entire contents of his pouch onto the ground in his square as a move action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity.
DARKVISION: Ysoki can see up to 60 feet in the dark.
MOXIE: Ysoki are scrappy and nimble even when the odds are against them. A ysoki can stand from prone as a swift action. Additionally, when off-kilter (see page 276), a ysoki does not take the normal penalties to attacks or gain the flat-footed condition. When attempting an Acrobatics check to tumble through the space of an opponent at least one size category larger than himself, a ysoki receive a +5 racial bonus to the check.
SCROUGER: Ysoki receive a +2 racial bonus to Engineering, Stealth, and Survival checks.

Starship: Computational Savant
Computational Savant (Starship Boon): You’ve mastered the art of getting the most out of starship computers. Where others gain some insight from computerized assistance, you are able to take away far greater information.
Benefit: When operating on board a starship with a computer, that computer counts as having an extra node that only you can use. For example, if you’re on a starship with a mk 2 trinode computer, it would count as providing +2/+2/+2/+2, with the last +2 bonus being available only for a skill check that you attempt. If your starship has no computer, you can cobble together a basic network with onboard systems that counts as a mk 1 mononode that only you can use to enhance your skill checks.
Special: A starship can benefit from only one copy of this Starship boon at a time.
Hero of the Stars (Starship Boon; Limited Use): You defeated the dreaded Besmaran pirate ship, Lawblight, showcasing your determination during an intense starship combat.

A starship can never regain more than 30 Hull Points in this manner. A starship can never have more than one of these boons attached to it. When this boon activates, cross it off your Chronicle sheet.
Automated Defenses (Starship Boon): You defeated one of the orbital defense platforms orbiting the planet Elytrio. The platform contained several unique, albeit technologically outdated, innovations in starship design. The most promising adaptation of the technology is its ability to deter oncoming missiles using miniature automated drones. When you slot this starship boon, once per starship combat, a science officer can reduce the speed of a single tracking weapon fired at your starship by 50% for 1 round. Declare the use of this ability when the enemy weapon is fired but before its gunnery check is attempted. A science officer can spend a Resolve Point to activate this boon again in any subsequent round or encounter. A starship can only be improved by a single copy of this boon.
Solar Powered Weapon System (Starship Boon): The files you retrieved from Brilliance also included blueprints for experimental innovations by the Arch Energy Consortium. When you slot this starship boon, select a single weapon on your starship with the word “laser” in its title; you gain a +1 bonus to damage rolls with that weapon. A gunner can spend a Resolve Point prior to firing the selected weapon to increase the bonus to 4 for 1 round. A starship weapon can be improved only by a single copy of this boon, but copies of this boon can be applied to different weapons.
Digital Imp (Ally Boon): The Dataphiles offer you a digital construct that can assist with certain skills.
Benefit: The Dataphiles have provided you with a digital construct. While commonly called an “imp,” this digital program can resemble any creature you desire, along with a personality you choose. Lacking physical form, this intricate program can reside within a wrist-mounted computer, a hacking kit, or even inside a mechanic’s exocortex. As a standard action, you can unleash the digital imp on an adjacent computer system , where it is able to perform the following uses of the Computers skill: Access Unsecured System, Destroy System or Module, Detect Fake Shell, Disable or Manipulate Module, Gain Root Access, or Hack System. The digital imp uses your bonus to Computers with a –4 penalty to the check and cannot take 10 or 20. The digital imp also doubles the time to perform any task, such as 2 full actions per tier of a computer system to hack a system. You can recollect the deployed digital imp as a standard action when adjacent to a computer system where the imp is deployed.
High Society Influence (Ally Boon): During the course of Luwazi Elsebo’s gala to announce the future of the Starfinder Society, you impressed one or more of the guests in attendance. How this influence will play out in the future is not yet clear, but you have nevertheless ingratiated yourself with a number of influential people. You will be told if this boon is important to a future scenario prior to slotting your boons. Your GM will cross out the attendees your failed to influence.
Iteration-177’s Attention (Ally Boon): During your journey to Athaeum, you attended a unique dinner hosted by the android known as Iteration-177. They came to a decision about your personality based on a memory you provided (or refused to provide). How this decision will play out in the future is not yet clear, but you have nevertheless made an impression on the mysterious android. You will be told if this boon is important to a future scenario prior to slotting your boons. Your GM will cross out all results save that which you earned from the dinner.
Envar’s Attention (Ally Boon): During your mission to the space station Brilliance, you managed to impress Arch Energy’s notorious chief procurement officer, Envar Tamm. How this influence will play out in the future is not yet clear, but you have nevertheless ingratiated yourself with Envar Tamm—for good or for ill. You will be told if this boon is important to a future scenario prior to slotting your boons.
AbadarCorp Acquaintance (Social Boon): During your hunt for a renegade Starfinder on Akiton, you interacted with a representative of AbadarCorp. Depending on this interaction, you may have earned the ire or respect of the Pact World corporation. Both outcomes for this boon could have positive repercussions in future scenarios, which you will be told of prior to slotting your boons. Your GM will cross out the affiliation you failed to earn.
 Faction’s Friend (Social Boon; Limited Use): By assisting various factions of the Starfinder Society, you have proven yourself as a dependable asset. By slotting this boon, if you would fail to earn Fame at the end of an adventure by failing to fulfill a success condition, you can check one of the boxes on this boon. Doing so reminds your current championed faction of your past exploits, and you still earn 1 Reputation (but no Fame) with that faction as if you had successfully fulfilled the condition. You can use this boon only if you would also gain at least 1 XP for completing the adventure.
Friend of the Ghibrani (Social Boon): During your time on Elytrio, you had the opportunity to interact with the two subspecies of the resident ghibrani race: the husks and the membranes. Depending on your interactions, you befriended one or more of these subspecies. This boon might have repercussions in future scenarios, which you will be told of prior to slotting your boons. Your GM will cross out the entry for any subspecies you failed to befriend during this scenario.
Athaeum Insight (Social Boon): By spending some time on the library world Athaeum, you’ve gained a small sliver of magical insight to carry with you on your journeys. When you slot this boon, you always count as being trained in the Culture skill, even if you do not pave a skill rank in it. This does not grant any bonuses to Culture skill checks but does allow you to attempt those skill checks untrained while the boon is slotted. In addition, once per session, you can reroll the result of any skill check to recall knowledge.
Dataphiles Champion, Improved (Faction Boon) Your allegiance with the Dataphiles means you gain personal bonuses for completing related mission objectives as well as championing the faction.
Benefit: This Faction boon allows the character to gain Reputation with the Dataphiles faction. A character with this boon slotted at the end of a successfully completed scenario gains Reputation as detailed in the primary and secondary success conditions of that scenario.
In addition, once per adventure, when you succeed at a Computers or Engineering check that is written into the adventure, you recover 1 Resolve Point, up to your Resolve Point total.
[ ]Tattoo of the Starfinder: You have a magical tattoo, commemorating your induction into the Starfinder Society. As an immediate action when you are struck by a critical hit or dealt at least 15 points of damage from a spell or supernatural ability, you can check the box that precedes this boon and expend the tattoo’s magic to gain 10 temporary Hit Points that last for 1 minute. You also regain 1 previously expended Resolve Point when using this boon.
Hit Points are a precious commodity at low levels, and a few lucky attacks from an opponent can sometimes kill a character. Similarly, Resolve Points are key to using special abilities and stabilizing if a deadly attack takes you down. Consider this option to reduce the chance that a lucky critical hit will kill you.
[X][X][X][X][X]True Savior of Tasch (Slotless Boon; Limited Use): You helped ensure a measure of prosperity for the Akitonian town of Tasch by enticing AbadarCorp to set up a shipping outpost in the town. You can forgo making a day job roll to instead devote time to assist with the growth of Tasch. Any time you opt to do so, check a box on this boon and make a note on the Chronicle sheet associated with that scenario, indicating you partook in this endeavor. Once all five boxes on this boon are marked, you receive 500 UPBs as recompense from the people of Tasch for helping to develop their now-thriving town. These UPBs cannot be converted to credits and must be used to craft some form of equipment.
Digital Presence (Slotless Boon)
Marked Field Agent (Slotless Boon): Having met the amalgam of intelligences known as Guidance, you have successfully completed your induction into the Starfinder Society. The Society offered you a subdermal implant as part of your commencement. You receive this augmentation for free. If you declined to receive the augmentation, cross this boon off your Chronicle sheet.
Protector of the Future (Slotless Boon): You have saved the elected First Seeker from a notorious assassin and facilitated her announcing the future of the Starfinder Society. As a token of gratitude, you can immediately cross this boon off your Chronicle sheet to gain the Second Seekers (Luwazi Elsebo) Champion boon (as detailed in the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Guide).
Starfinder Insignia (Slotless Boon): Venture-Captain Arvin presented you with a commemorative insignia in gratitude for your services to the Starfinder Society. Although it appears to be an ordinary medal showing the symbol of the Starfinder Society, this insignia can store as much information as a common tier-1 datapad. Unless told about this secret, a non-Starfinder must succeed at a DC 20 Perception or Sense Motive check to realize the insignia is a storage device. This insignia is worth 0 credits and cannot be sold.
Star Sugar Heartlove!!! (Slotless Boon; Limited Use): During your commencement missions, you had the chance to pick up your own copy of the latest album from sugar-pop sensation Strawberry Machine Cake. This album is already a Pact Worlds hit and has quadrupled in price. You can resell the album for 200 credits prior to the start of your next adventure. If you sell the album, cross this boon off your Chronicle sheet. Alternatively, you can decide to keep the album, which might somehow prove useful in the future.
Journey to the Scoured Stars: Segment 1 (Unidentified Boon): You were present at Luwazi Elsebo’s announcement declaring the Starfinder Society would continue investigating the Scoured Stars system. This boon represents your character’s involvement in this historic first step toward solving the Scoured Stars mystery. Other boons representing future steps towards unraveling the mystery of the Scoured Stars will appear in future scenarios, and collecting these boons will result in a unique bonus, to be detailed in a future Chronicle sheet.
Journey to the Scoured Stars: Segment 2 (Unidentified Boon): You uncovered hidden truths about the history of the Scoured Stars by journeying to the library world of Athaeum. This boon represents your character’s involvement in this critical step toward solving the Scoured Stars mystery.
