Robot Shape

The player can choose what she likes: fire hydrant, filing cabinet, kitchen appliance, etc. The players cannot disguise her persona as a fire hydrant or a filing cabinet unless she has a robotic disguise skill.

If some random assistance is needed, consult the below tables. The tables only offer a shape. The colour, design, sound, decals, smell, or detailing is still up to the player. The referee may have some commercial patching, depending on the campaign.

The robot shape has no bearing on attacks, peripherals or defences.
