Human Sphere N3 Content.

The SymbioMate is a single use piece of Equipment that allows its owner, in whose Trooper Profile the SymbioMate is listed, to assign it to a trooper in the same Army List, called the user, in order to provide additional combat advantages. This Daedalus' Fall update replaces the version previously shown in Human Sphere N3.

SymbioMates: General Game Conditions

  • The SymbioMate must be placed and remain in base contact with its user, its assigned trooper, moving along with him.
  • A SymbioMate is considered a Game State Marker rather than a model.


SYMBIOMATE

SYMBIOMATE AUTOMATIC EQUIPMENT
Deployable, Non-Lootable, Obligatory, Prior Deployment
REQUIREMENTS
  • SymbioMates can only be assigned during the Deployment Phase, when deploying their owner.
  • A SymbioMate can only be assigned by its owner to those troopers possessing Symbiont Armor and who are present on the game table as a model (thus excluding troopers using Airborne Deployment, in Hidden Deployment or Impersonation state, etc.)
  • A trooper with Symbiont Armor cannot receive more than one SymbioMate.
  • SymbioMates can only be used while in the Active Symbiont Armor state. If this state is lost, the SymbioMate must be removed from the game table.
  • The SymbioMate must be used when suffering a successful Attack—or being affected by any weapon or rule—that forces ARM or BTS Roll.
EFFECTS
  • During the Deployment Phase, a SymbioMate is assigned to a trooper possessing Symbiont Armor and is placed in base to base contact with that trooper on the game table.
  • A SymbioMate provides its user in the Active Symbiont Armor state an ARM and BTS value of 9—replacing the ARM and BTS values of the user's Troop Profile—and it also provides the Total Immunity Special Skill.
  • When a trooper in the Active Symbiont Armor state with a SymbioMate suffers a successful Attack—or is affected by any weapon or rule—that forces any ARM or BTS Rolls she will perform an ARM/BTS Roll with an Attribute value of 9, applying the Total Immunity Special Skill. Any other successful Attacks—or weapon or rule—requiring any ARM or BTS Rolls by the user during the same Order will also apply the ARM/BTS 9 Attribute value, and the Total Immunity Special Skill.
  • This is a single-use piece of Equipment, the SymbioMate will be removed from the game table at the end of the Order in which it was used.
  • This piece of Equipment is not applied when facing a Hacking or Comms Attack.


REMEMBER

The use of this piece of Equipment is obligatory. The SymbioMate will be automatically activated by the first successful Attack—or weapon or rule—requiring an ARM or BTS Roll that is received by the user.


SymbioMate Game Example-1:

During the Deployment Phase, the Tohaa Player assigns two of its Kaeltar Specialist's SymbioMates to a Gorgos and a Sakiel, two troopers deployed in Active Symbiont Armor state.

During the game, the Gorgos receives, in the same Order, a successful hit with DA Special Ammunition, one successful hit with Adhesive Special Ammunition and a successful Attack with Forward Observer. As the Gorgos possesses a SymbioMate it is forced to use it, so the TAG treats the DA hit as Normal Ammunition (thanks to the Total Immunity Special Skill) applying an Attribute value of ARM 9. However, the Gorgos must perform the PH-6 Roll for the Adhesive Special Ammunition, as the SymbioMate is not applied with this Attack. At the end of the Order, the player must place a Targeted Marker (due the Forward Observer successful Attack) besides the Gorgos and remove the SymbioMate from the game table.

Let's suppose the Gorgos received two successful hits with Fire Special Ammunition and also an Attack with a Hacking Program. Then, the Gorgos is forced to use the SymbioMate, so the TAG treats the Fire hits as Normal Ammunition (thanks to the Total Immunity Special Skill) applying an Attribute value of ARM 9. However, the Gorgos must perform a BTS Roll for the Hacking Attack, using the Attribute value of its Troop Profile, as the SymbioMate does not apply against this kind of Attack. At the end of the Order, the player must remove the SymbioMate from the game table.

If the Gorgos would be in Partial Cover, it would apply the MOD +3 to the ARM/BTS 9 value provided by the SymbioMate.

Later, the Kaeltar Specialist, the owner of the SymbioMates, passes to Dead state. However, even though the Kaeltar model is removed from the game table, the player will not remove the Sakiel's unused SymbioMate.


SymbioMate Game Example-2:

In the next Game Round, during a heroic action, the Sakiel suffers two successful hits with AP Special Ammunition and one Critical hit with DA Special Ammunition, all of them in the same Order. As the Sakiel has a SymbioMate, he must use it, so he performs two ARM Rolls with an ARM value of 9, due to treating the two AP hits as Normal Ammunition thanks to the Total Immunity Special Skill provided by the SymbioMate. Also, he must apply the DA Critical hit, but treating it as a Critical hit with Normal Ammunition, thanks again to the Total Immunity Special Skill. At the end of that Order, the player must remove the SymbioMate.


SymbioMates are bioconstructs that serve as a platform for a symbiont creature to allow other troopers to benefit from the capabilities of the Corahtar Discipline Masters. The sacrifice of these creatures is valuable as it helps to save the life of their users, so nobody will shed tears for them.
