New Traveller Edges
Requirements: Smarts d6, Agility d6,
Career: Army, Belters, Marines or Pirates
The character is trained at setting demolitions for maximum effect. Characters make demolitions rolls using the lower of their Agility or Smarts. When setting explosives, each success and raise on this Ability roll adds a raise to the damage done by the blast. When diffusing explosives, the GM sets the difficulty for the diffusion. A success diffuses the explosive. A raise indicates that all the components are also intact and could be used again. A roll of one on the Ability roll when setting or diffusing means the explosive detonates. Roll damage normally.
