|An artist impression of some of the stimuli taken after a telepathic probe of one of the Derro's victims|
After the Derro strike deep into the heart of human space recently a starling discovery was made. Derro not only take the heads of their victims & create artifacts from them but have used the delicate neural pathways to to create genetic memory so that an individual's experiences would become imprinted upon their cells, and would in turn be hidden within the cells of their descendants. Often these devices are made from common house hold electronic items found at the colony raid sites & the human brains of their victims.
Speculation is that the victims were taken through their memories & the memories of their ancestors so that a data base of human knowledge may be built. The use of artificial nerve cells allows the Derro to mimic actual reality matrices so that the illusion from reality to fantasy may be created unless a save vs is rolled.
|Here we see a complete rewiring of the human mind for the twisted purposes of the Derro|
The Black Box Brain
The brain box artifacts have the following powers:
Z ray Planar Blind Spot (3 times per day)
Control Machine (3 times per day)
Mind Control (3 times per day)
Scanner Jam (3 times per day)
Dead Zone(3 times per day)
A Skill/Power success roll is required for the use of any power.
A Derro scientist may ask the victim any question & the victim is compelled to answer it. The Derro may appear to be a close relative, or anyone whom the person trusted in life. The user of the brain box may also with a skill roll create the effect of the power of space madness. There is however 1d6 chance that this may burn out the box! The derro will only do this as a last ditch effort!
