Drone charge?

Mon 03 Sep 2018, 10:40

I've allowed our new party (they're journalists) to have a modified Drone which is equipped with a tier IV communicator and a holo camera.

Due to the clunky communicator on it, I am thinking it would be reasonably bulky (heavy trait) and come with a carrying harness, but one thing I'm wondering about is the charge on it. Any ideas?

Spend darkness point if you want to deplete the drone's battery and don't worry about it.  :geek:

It depends on how often they use it.
As a GM you can decide on a time estimate (e.g. a Recon Probe can run for 2 hours before it needs recharging iirc) or you can simply deplete it at will by spending 1 DP, as cells are unstable by default.

Thanks, I don't know why I didn't think of DP! Regardless, it's odd that the recon probe (described as being smaller than a drone) has a charge listed, but the drone does not... I think I'll double the charge but still allow it to be depleted with a DP.
