Chevallier Mk 3 Fronteersman


Chevallier Mk 3 Fronteersman

Full Item Description



The system was produced by the E-Terr Corporation, one of the major munition conglomerates employed by the Terran Armed Forces.  It was intended to provide isolated outposts with heavy law-enforcement capability.  A fronteersman is not expected to deal with minor infractions that can easily be handled between setters, but intended to combat brigands, pirates and deal with civil unrest.

Operating far from any backup, this duty is very hazardous and this combat system was designed to produce the maximum local support and mission flexibility.



In the vast expanse of the Thousand Worlds, the TWN cannot be everywhere, and so on many a lonely outpost, a single Fronteersman is often the sole bastion of law and order.

For long range transport, the Fronteersmen employ an assortment of military and civialian (though modified) vehicals, but on normal patrol, they employ their wonderful mount.

The Horse is both transport and logistics. This creature is an engineered lifeform combining both genetic engineering and cybernetic systems.  It is as heavily armored as the Fronteersman himself, and contains a variety of offensive and support systems:

Parts Replicator: Capable of assembling small items from resources either already carried or obtained locally.  Device complexity can be quite high depending on the capability of the purpose-built Quantum CPU. 

"Lance" laser:  The pommel of the Horse’s saddle includes a hookup for the T80 light laser - a model normally employed on light armored vehicals and combat robots.  When not in use the weapon is slung along side the horse.  When emplaced, the weapon uses the horse’s own integral fusion powerplan to provide excellent capacity.

Magic/Cursed Properties
Actually a small combat team.

Horse, Hawk, Hound and Trooper

The Horse provides primary locomotion, power and logistics.

The Hawk provides reconnasiance and minor harrasment capabilites.  It can also function as an anti-tank missle, though this of course destroys the hawk.

The Hound also provides scouting capability, but is also useful for capturing criminals and tracking.  In extremis, it can also self destruct, with a sub-nuclear yield.

Does anyone care if this is finished? It smells a bit anime to me.

From what I understood - a trooper with a cyber-horse, -dog nad -hawk? Anime-ish, but kinda stylish :)

Yes. Basically inspired by "The Witch of the Westmoreland" - Stan Rogers. Also somewhat by Sabreriders.

He said "Lie down me brindled hound, and rest ye me good grey hawk,
And thee, my steed, may graze thy fill, for I must dismount and walk.
But come when you hear my horn, and answer swift the call!
For I fear ere the sun will rise this morn ye will serve me best of all."

In a crowded marketplace, a man is standing on a soapbox, orating. Some of the crowd are cheering, some hissing, some standing around saying "I can't hear a bl**dy word he's saying". It's a hustings for an election. The PCs can either leave, or stay and listen. If they do the latter, then they can vote too, and they might get quite involved in the cheering. Depending on who wins they might get quite involved in the post-election brawl too...

There are numerous possibilities with this encounter: the PCs might end up talking to one of the nervous candidates before their speech, and offer encouragement and support. Of course this candidate may well turn out to be someone with outspokenly unorthodox views, and the crowd don't take kindly to s/his supporters. Or maybe the seemingly innocuous candidate turns out to be a complete racist, and the PCs wander off embarrassedly, pretending they weren't talking to this person five minutes ago.
