In the far future, Humankind had grown depended on a machine intelligence called N.E.X.U.S. We're fairly certain you can see [[RobotWar where this is going]] already: [[AIIsACrapshoot Computer goes crazy]], decides to KillAllHumans, LaResistance rises up to fight them, yadda yadda yadda.

Here's where it gets interesting: The Machine gets clever and dries to disarm the Resistance with a Nanobot Plague. This plague turns not only machinery, but even otherwise inert metal into deadly weapons if touched by organic life. (Guns only fire when pointed at humans, HumongousMecha come to life and attack their users, even a ''spoon'' will sprout CombatTentacles and try to impale your hand). In response, the Humans turned to powerful bio-weapons, genetically engineered monsters, and living PoweredArmor to continue the fight.

** On that note, Skinjobs and Scarecrows. The "Downsides" section for the Skinjob OCC takes care to note that you look like "a monster out of a nightmare" with your nasty new super-skin.



* InvisibilityCloak: Skinjobs' special skin allows them to generate a stealth field that makes them nearly invisible.

* InvisibilityCloak: Skinjobs' special skin allows them to generate a stealth field that makes them nearly invisible. It's noted that they remain visible under night vision and infrared sight, but can be detected in motion by motion sensors and the like.


Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfIron: It takes Mega Damage to pierce the super-tough skin of a Skinjob. They're also very resistant to pain -- no amount of pain can impair their performance. Handy for them, since they can't wear real armor without compromising their role as stealth operatives.

* HealingFactor: Host Armors can have three different three different levels of it. A variant is the "Quick-Clotting Blood" feature, which causes wounds to close up faster.

* AcePilot: Archangels, though they "pilot" a suit of winged PoweredArmor. Outriders, though ground-bound, are described in terms clearly evocative of this type of character.

* BodyHorror: Saints, Engineers, Gene Pools, and ''especially'' Librarians. Yeah, Skinjobs and Scarecrows don't even come close to these guys.

Added DiffLines:

* FastTunnelling: A noted ability of Tunnel Rat War Mounts. It ''is'' mentioned that they can't build tunnels as fast as they can burrow because of a need to pack down soil and reinforce walls, though.


Added DiffLines:

* LethalJokeCharacter: In-universe, the Tunnel Rat War Mounts were designed as something like a joke on the Machine, which hates rodents as much a humans. They were mostly used to draw fire away from human forces until Splicers in the field saw how fierce and capable they were.
