12th +1 Attack per Melee, +5 to S.D.C.
13th - Forearm Attack, Reverse Turning Kick, gain the Lightning Form as described under Thai Kick Boxing in Ninjas & Superspies. Lightning Form: This is the style most often used in competition. It allows all the normal attacks per melee round to be delivered in the first attack. In other words, if the character has five attacks per melee, then all five strikes can be made at one time. It must be done as the first attack in a melee round and the character must have the initiative. The problem is that after the attack the character cannot Dodge and has no bonuses to Parry for the rest of that melee round.
14th - Critical Strike on a natural roll of 18 or higher, +1 to Parry, +1 to Dodge.
15th - +1 Attack per melee

Hercules has a small olive tree, a cutting from the olive grove he originally nursed back to health. He brings it with him on every deployment and tends to it diligently in his off-duty hours. His plan is to plant it when he settles down and starts a family of his own. (GM Note for Cap'n: I bet you knew I'd keep this in Herc's character sheet for him. =) )
Credits: 15,000 (Dann here - this is a bonus from Project Eternity).
Pruning tools (for his tree)
2 smoke grenades (1 red, 1 green).
Personal clothing and effects
CBR Mk. 2E Combat Armor Environmental "Megasuit"
CBR environmental hardsuits are descended from the UEDF's CHR-1 Hazardous Environment suit. Advances in materials as well as environmental systems have allowed the ASC to capitalize on the fully sealed armor idea, providing a sturdy, relatively lightweight suit that fully protects the wearer from hostile environments. Worn by aerospace pilots, combat divers, and TSC naval infantry, these suits consist of a fully articulated, positively pressurized hardsuit that is worn much like a spacesuit or hard diving suit. The suits are made primarily of ceramic composite plates that lock together with flexible joints that provide the wearer with both flexibility and protection. Environmental suits do not utilize a unisuit, but instead have all the standard features integrated into a built-in lining. Mk. 2E environmental hardsuits come in light and heavy varieties and vary in style and color depending on service branch.
Features of All CBR Environmental Armor:
1. Full Environmental Shielding: CBR full environmental hardsuits are positively pressurized and proofed against radiation, chemical and biological agents. These suits have an internal computer that runs the life support systems and a built-in oxygen tank good for two hours of use fully buttoned up. The oxygen supply can be extended indefinitely by drawing in outside air and filtering it through the integral scrubbers, or with external oxygen packs.
2. Heat and Fire Resistance. CBR hardsuits are nearly impervious to extremes of temperature up to 2,000 degrees F (1,093 degrees C) and down to -300 degrees F (-184.4 degrees C). These suits are also fireproof and take no damage from normal fires (campfires, bonfires, house fires, vehicle fires, etc.). Nuclear fires, napalm and plasma fires all deal normal damage.
CBR Mk. 2E Heavy Armor
M.D.C. by Location:
Helmet - 45
Arms (2) - 30 each
Legs (2) - 50 each
Main Body - 105
Weight: 25 pounds (11.25 kg).
Movement Penalties: -15% penalty on skills requiring flexibility and mobility such as Swimming, Climbing, Acrobatics, Escape Artist, etc., and reduces running speed by 10%.
Service: Used primarily by the ASC Tactical Space Corps, Global Military Police and Navy Division.
CB-S Tactical Shields
Made of the same ceramic alloys as the CBR body armors, the CB-S shields give a soldier an extra level of protection against both melee and ranged attacks. Used by a number of branches within the ASC, these shields come in light, medium and heavy types, and vary in color and style to match the armor they come with. CB-S Tactical Shields are used by most of the ASC, with the exception of the Navy Division, Tactical Air Force, Civil Defense Flying Corps, and the Tactical Corps Mountain Division.
Heavy Shield: 55 M.D.C. Weight: 15 pounds (6.75 kg), -10% to skills that require manual dexterity (Pick Locks, Demolitions, Field Surgery, etc.) +2 to parry.
