Fabricate Arms - Can you create customized armor and weapons?


Rules Questions


So, my questions comes from the fact that there is no such thing as a 10 bulk armor or weapon (unless you take something stupidly big like starship weapons or vehicules). This brought the question "can the created armor have an upgrade?" This would raise it's bulk value, by extension this brings the question, can you summon an upgraded weapon.


armor and armor upgrades are separate things. it takes 10 minutes to install an upgrade into your armor. good luck using it :D

as for weapons, it does mention that it is compatible with fuse spells. whether or not you need to use fuse seals or if you can just summon a weapon with the fusion already placed on it is another story (i would assume already on it for most since fusions are magical)

"Fuse spells" refers to the 20th level Technomancer class ability, not weapon fusions. It's saying you can fuse lower level spell slots in order to get a higher level weapon.

Well it's a magical process, I dont see how summoning a light armor with a jetpack might take longer to summon than a heavy armor.

This also does not explain the bulk 10 limit. The heaviest armor (excluding power armor) being bulk 3.

Also after checking vehicules and starship weapon have no bulk, so the bulk limit probably isn't for that.

... Wait I just wrote excluding power armor! How much do those wheight?
Battle harness 20 bulk, Cargo lifter 34 bulk Jarlslayer 43 bulk...
I think I got my answer ^^"


Fabricate Arms says "The quality of the item is average for its type."

Maybe that's meant to say it can't have any upgrades or customization? Not sure.

I thought this was for the crafting rule. When you craft items yourself they are considered to be of higher level than the standart object.

Oh, that makes sense.
