Savage Rifts Sidekicks

Return to Savage Rifts


The following characters are intended as Sidekick NPCs (usually Intelligent Constructs) and are therefore presented in NPC format. For complicated builds, the (build) link will take you to an expanded version that shows specifics and build notes.

I.S.A.A.C. - Intelligent Stealth Armored Assault Cycle

A loving nod to Knight Rider's K.I.T.T., this hoverbike was created for stealthy infiltration but escaped after it unexpectedly developed sapience. Who created it is up to the player or GM. When maneuvering, note that I.S.A.A.C. uses its Athletics or the driver can use their own Piloting; if both are working together, the Support rules make sense here. (build)
