Here is what each column means
Name: Name of vehicle. These are very generic types that represent several different makes and models. There are too many to list, but they generally all have the same statistics/performance. See specific descriptions below for more details (but not much more).
Armor: Armor class of vehicle. This can be raised by buying Armor Plating (see below)
Hardness: This is the vehicles resistance to damage, treat it like damage reduction (DR).
HP: Hit points of the vehicle. When this reaches 0, the vehicle is inoperable. If it goes to -10 the vehicle is destroyed beyond repair. Like with players at -1 to -9, the vehicle is “dying”, but only loses 1 HP per round if it is used. If the driver/operator stops using the vehicle, then it will remain at its current negative HP until repaired. HP can be increased by buying Chassis Reinforcements (see below)
Crew: This is the number of passengers the vehicle is intended for including driver. A number in a bracket (#) is the number of possible passengers that can still sparingly occupy the vehicle, but is not an absolute limit. Any passengers exceeding the normal amount causes a -1 for all skills for all passengers including the drivers.
Acc/Dec: Acceleration and Deceleration in MPH per round. It’s listed in feet, but obviously most vehicles can move faster than this in ~6 seconds. However, this is relative to players. All rules for movement still apply meaning they can move at x2, x3, x4, or x5 the Speed/Rnd, but in doing so they take a cumulative -2 to their Ride skill checks. So at x2, you are at a -2. At x5, you are at a -8. Speed/Rnd can be increased by better Tires (see below). Handling at different speeds, thus reducing the penalties, can be increased by buying Performance Suspensions (see below).
Drive: This is the drive type of the vehicle, indicating if it is Rear Wheel Drive (RWD), Front Wheel Drive (FWD), All Wheel Drive (AWD), 4 Wheel Drive (4WD) or for Aerodynes the number of Lift fans it has. There are some advanced driving and mechanical rules that do require knowing what type of the drive system the vehicle has.
Max Speed: Is just that, the top speed of the vehicle. This can be increased by buying either Nytro-Boosts (temporary boost, see below) or better Engines (permanent, but not as dramatic increase, see below)
Fuel: Fuel indicates fuel capacity, mostly how many gallons and type of gas. In some cases it will list a battery type.
MPU: Miles Per Unit (MPU) indicates how far the vehicle can travel on a single unit of fuel (for gas a unit is a gallon). Battery powered units however indicate how many Jolts are consumed per hour.
Range: Calculates how far the vehicle can go with a fuel tank using the MPU column for you so you don’t have to do the math.
Price: This is the price in Calories (or KiloCalories) of the vehicle. As you can see most are pretty expensive, but most city-states have excellent public transportation.
Specific Vehicle Descriptions
Again there are dozens of car manufacturers on Athas (just as many on earth) and they all make standard “Lot Models.” What is represented in the charts are those “Lot Models”, by adding various modifications, you make the vehicle your own. Additionally, the vehicle descriptions are the same as the DnD 5e, so refer here for specific descriptions.
|Armor I||+1 to Armor||-5 to Max Speed||5000c|
|Armor II||+2 to Armor||-10 to Max Speed||10kc|
|Armor III||+3 to Armor||-15 to Max Speed||20kc|
|Reinforced Chassis I||+10 to HP||-5 to Speed/Rnd||10kc|
|Reinforced Chassis II||+10 to HP||-10 to Speed/Rnd||30kc|
|Performance Tires||+10 to Speed/Rnd (street only)||Inability on driving on rough terrain||7500c|
|Off-Road Tires||+10 to Speed/Rnd (rough terrain)||-10 to Max Speed (street only)||6000c|
|Performance Suspension||Asset to Driving for Maneuverability||None||10kc|
|Off-Road Suspension||Asset to Driving for Maneuverability||None||10kc|
|Nytro Boosts||+30 MPH to max speed for 1d4 rounds||None||5000c|
|Performance Engine||+10 MPH to max speed||None||12kc|
|Torque Engine||+10k LBS to towing capacity||None||10kc|
Much like your own accessories, you can purchase these additions to your vehicle. You can add the benefit, but make sure you apply the penalty as well. All of these are pretty easily obtained and you can either have them professionally installed (price listed) or you can install them yourself for 3/4th the price listed. The DC to install any of these is 45, like with Computer Use, each roll is cumulative and will help you reach the goal, but each roll is also 4 hrs of work. So if it takes you 3 rolls to reach DC 45, then you spent 12 hrs installing the accessory.
