Plan: Prior to an encounter the Smart hero can develop a plan of action to handle the situation. Using this talent requires preparation; a Smart hero can’t use this talent when surprised or otherwise unprepared for a particular situation. Creating a plan requires 1 minute.
After creating the plan the Smart hero makes an Intelligence check (DC 10) with a bonus equal to his or her Smart level. The result of the check provides the Smart hero and allies with a circumstance bonus. A Smart hero can’t take 10 or 20 when making this check.
Check Result Bonus
9 or lower +0 (check failed)
25 or higher +3
This bonus can be applied to all skill checks and attack rolls made by the Smart hero and his or her allies, but the bonus only lasts for the first 3 rounds after making the plan. After that time, reduce the bonus by 1 point (to a minimum of +0) for every additional round the situation continues, as the vagaries of circumstance begin to unravel even the best-laid pla
Computer Link: As a move action, a Mechalus can link with any computer they can reach, using short filaments that extend from their fingertips. Once the physical link is achieved, the Mechalus can use the computer to accomplish complex computer-related tasks more quickly than normal. A task that normally requires 1 or more minutes to complete on the computer takes a full-round action insead, while a task that normally requires 1 or more hours takes 1 minute instead. The DC of the skill check increases by 5, however, as the Mechalus trades caution for expedience.
A Mechalus retains his Dexterity bonus to Defense while linked to a computer. Disconnecting from the computer is a free action, and a linked Mechalus who takes an attack action automatically severs the link. The link is also broken the instant the Mechalus can no longer reach the computer.
Computational Logic: Mechalus gain a +2 species bonus to Computer Use checks.
Cybernetic Adaptability: A Mechalus can have an additional number of cybernetic attachments equal to his level. Improper removal of a cybernetic attachment installed on a Mechalus causes 1d4 points of temporary Constitution damage (instead of 1d4 points of permanent Constitution drain, as normal).
