New Bio Systems & Plastic Surgery
- Advanced Artificial Heart: 60 years life. Specially designed
so that in high stress situations the heart will not fail. This gives the
person +1 to PE and +5% against coma and death. Cost: 150,000 credits
Advanced High Capacity Artificial Lungs: 60 year life. Specially designed to give the person 150% of the normal duration of holding their breath. Cost: 80,000 credits
Advanced Filtering Artificial Lungs: 60 year life. The lungs have a 60% chance of filtering out nerve gasses and poisonous gasses Cost: 100,000 credits
Artificial Skin: Skin is grown in special vats and is used to replace skin. They can be made in virtually any color. Most common is normal skin colors but may be bright colors or may be mixed like a dalmatian spots or other unusual styles. The texture is also variable and can be scales like snakes and many other styles as well. The skin has sweat glands grown into the skin as well.
Cost: 2,000 credits per square foot (Unusual skin types cost 25% extra).
Artificial Muscle Replacement: There is a similar system also available know as Muscle Augmentation which boosts the Muscles with high strength Miomers. Muscle Replacement replaces the muscles with vat grown muscles. As more replacements are added, the muscles look heavier and heavier. Up to four levels of muscle replacements may be fitted but with all four, the person will look like a heavy body builder. This cannot be combined with Muscle Augmentation but may be added to bio-system limbs as well.
- +2 to Physical Strength (PS) per level (Maximum of 24).
+1 to Physical Endurance (PE) per level (Maximum of 20).
+2 to Speed (Spd) per level (Maximum of 24).
Artificial Hair: Like skin, the hair is grown in special vats and can be grown in virtually any color. This can include natural colors, unusual colors such as bright orange or green, or even mixed colors such as leopard spots or tiger stripes. This can be used to augment lost hair, replace hair, or even be used to cover the body in artificial hair. Cost: 600 credits for small area such as eyebrows and 4,000 credits per square foot for large areas (Unusual hair types cost 25% extra).
Artificial Bone Replacement: This is used to replace severely damaged bones structure and reinfroce lesser damage. Cost: 500 for smaller bone and 1,000 for larger bones
Modified Pheromones: Many of the bodies pheromones have been replaced by special ones. The result is that a person will appear more attractive to many people and their mental affinity. These pheremones have full effect on the persons race, have half effect on similar races (human pheromones would have half effect on elves for example). Level One gives +2 to Physical Beauty (PB) and Mental Affinity (MA). Level Two gives +4 to Physical Beauty (PB) and Mental Affinity (MA) but do not add the bonuses of level one. Cost: 15,000 credits for level one and 30,000 for level two.
Surgeons on Rifts Earth have developed plastic surgery to a fine art. As a result, the field has developed into a field that many call body sculpting.
- Facial Reconstruction: Many things are possible. Cheekbones
may be modified, chins may be modified, and Eyebrow positions may be changed,
eyes folds can be changed, features may be smoothed, and many other options
can be done as well. Many people prefer to keep their facial features recognizable
and just modify them. Physical beauty may be increases or decreased as
well. Physical beauty may be increase by up to 8 points but with a maximum
of 24 or may be decreased anywhere down to a physical beauty of three.
Cost: 2,000 per point of physical beauty and 10,000 for major reconstruction.
Other Surgeries: These surgeries can include many things. Fat may be reduced, or added for those that are too skinny. Skin may be tightened to show muscles or to alter figures, breasts may be enlarged or reduced and is safer because vat grown breast tissues are used. As a most extreme level, the surgery can even be to add tails, add bunny or cat ears, or even modify face with a muzzle or bunny nose: Costs: range depending on the amount of actually surgery, from a range of 1D4x1,000 for minor surgery, 4D6x1000 for moderate surgery, to 2D6x10,000 for major surgeries.
