VF-1A Valkyrie in Star Wars D6

Sorry I haven't posted much recently; my main thrust has been to work on some material for Kenzerco, in the hopes that they like my weird take on a portion of Tellene. However, I recently tossed out this odd little number, because my brain is a rubber ball loaded into a pinball machine.




New Mechanical Skills: Veritech Piloting (A)
For use in piloting Veritech fighters, this skill requires a Starfighter Piloting of 4D and Mechsuit Operation of 4D. As an advanced skill, it is used to add to Starfighter Piloting or Walker Operation when using a Veritech Fighter, and may be rolled on its own for special manuevers related to the variable configuration, such as the Easy check to change forms as part of another action, or the Very Difficult check to change forms without a multiple action penalty.

The Valkyrie is a variable fighter, able to change from a starfighter configuration, to a fully humanoid "battloid" shape, to a hybrid mode that combines features of the two; the last is also called "gerwalk" or "Guardian" mode. Someone who is skilled in Starfighter Piloting can make use of the Starfighter mode without penalty, and someone skilled in Walker Operation may make use of the "battloid"shape with no penalty. The gerwalk mode is special and slightly awkward; attempting to pilot with Starfighter Piloting will result in a -2D penalty, and Walker operation will carry a -1D penalty. Veritech Piloting negates these penalties on a pip-for-pip basis, with any "unnegated" pips or dice available to enhance operations.
