Automaton Controller

Automatons are detailed on SFONA pp. 35-36 and A&M pp. 37-41. The controller is likely a renegade from Dweomer, but that isn't a strict requirement; the secrets of automaton creation have leaked out to other magical communities. The only models disallowed are the Colossus (which is simply not found on Rifts Earth outside of Dweomer) and Infiltrator (which is more "tool" than "magical mecha").

Note that a mage cannot siphon PPE from an automaton; its battery is solely for its own use.

  • Begin with Occult d6, Piloting d6, plus the Arcane Background (Magic) and Controller Edges.
  • Arcane Link: When ordering the automaton to cast its spells, the controller may use their own Power Edges (like Blaster or Wizard), but must pay any PPE surcharge themselves.
  • Select one available automaton except for the Colossus or Infiltrator.
  • Begin with standard Starting Gear.
