Black Bodyglove

6 posts in this topic

So me and my GM have disagreed and I decided to ask you guys, cause you would probably know better :)

Is there a helm or anything like that with the Black Bodyglove? Does it cover my face? I mean, I am an Assassin, so it should do something like that, right?

Thank you for your answers :)

I'm not aware of any "Black Bodyglove" in the system, but assuming you mean the Mask Bodyglove, that's a no; it specifically only covers Body, Arms and Legs. I personally find that a bit odd, though, considering how for example Vindicare Assassins are routinely depicted being covered in a complete bodyglove, including the head (although I can see how the visor and such might be additional equipment not encompassed by things such as Advanced Helmet Systems).

Page 26, core rulebook, Assassin:

"Starting Gear: Shotgun and 12 shells or hunting rifle
and 16 rounds or autogun and 1 clip, sword, knife, compact
las pistol and 1 charge pack or 10 throwing knives, 3 doses
of stimm, charm (corpse hair), black bodyglove (Common
Quality Clothing)
."

 

Quote from the book :)

And yeah, I mean something like that at least? : https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-dRX93l3wVUk/Us5ZrSjEczI/AAAAAAAACYA/0NX_2yC7tG4/s640/blogger-image--628117712.jpg

I would say it would have a face mask if the individual assassin wanted a face mask. After all, some might like the enemy to know their face before they die to spread fear or because they're just plain psycopaths, whereas others might want their face hidden also for a different kind of fear or for the practicality of the enemy not knowing their face when they're infiltrating.

If it's just Clothing, I think it would be only fair to allow the player to determine its exact look. Just like (I assume) you would do with other rather general descriptions of this item type. :)

This. It's just clothing, without straight-up mechanical benefits. There's no reason the player wouldn't be allowed to define how it looks, within reason. A bodyglove is pretty much a skintight suit that is meant to keep exactly things like hair from getting in the way of an optic alarm trigger and stuff like that.

Likewise, since it's an item completely without stats or actual description, it is also up to the GM to define when there's any contention, which is why I prefer it when there's even a small description even for fluff items ("Set of Basic Tools" from Only War, anyone?). While I think that it's completely reasonable to let a player define what it is, the call is ultimately up to the GM, even if he decides that a "Black bodyglove" is a pink bodyglove designed by the Black Corporation.
