Wireless in the 41st Millennium

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Searched around and didn't find much on this subject. 

So to what extent does wireless technology go within the 41st Millennium? Can a Tech-Priest communicate with his Servo-Skulls via Wifi? 

Can he "Hack" into a terminal without the need to connect to it directly? In other words what can a Tech-Priest interact with Wirelessly?

Called "vox". Stops only when they remember about security.

If it has "integral comm-bead" or explicitly has remote use.

Servitors and cyber-familiars are usually not wired, so when they are controlled, it's vox-link. The question is what capabilities are actually available (on both ends) in each case. The tech-priests explicitly can teleoperate some things — at least utility skulls and servitors with servo-arms, but those are obviously made to be used like this. From other DH skulls, Loud Hailer can receive vox, Augur can transmit data; again, it just makes sense that they are made with these capabilities.

Constructer Interface allows to change programs of cybermastiffs and grapplehawks, "other constructs may only report data".

And, of course, many cyber-constructs are equipped with microbead, so as much as they can be given verbal orders, they can be given the same orders without having to find that thing and shout at it. But if there aren't any, it probably can be installed by any competent tech-priest. Just remember encrypted ones are

Depends on the terminal? It may be made to be accessible from anywhere around, or to be secure.

Totally agree here with @TBeholder.

The "Wifi" commanding and "hacking" part I would say called Binnary Chatter - special machine language.

 

If the terminal has possibility to connect via vox then yes. Just maybe any faithfull explorator need to be carefull with "hacking" because most of the time it is against rules. Also, If you start "hacking" left and right you might become an Heretek and enemy of Omnissiah really fast( HA p.32 ). If something can be hacked then other can investigate it and track it.

In general, if there is any serious hacking to be done ( vehicle machine spirit, data engine ) then direct MIU acces is required for our DM. Which in the paranoid times I find reasonable. All machine level brains that are below that are generally 'wireless'.

…going to be more expensive/rare, which is easier to write as Good/Best Craftsmanship.

I'd assume it's also fairly easy to add changeable electronic keys (since cognomen readers are so common people stick them on data-slates).

Why not a portable cogitator? MIU gives a bonus, however.

Also, the schismaticals can infect "any vox–aware device", servitors and augmetics of tech-priests.
