The Mechanic – “If you want something fixed
right, fix it yourself!”
There are a lot of broken things in the wasteland,
and mechanics take a special interest in them. From
vehicles to machines, guns to computers, robotic
assistants and beyond, Mechanics labor to design
these things when they’re not busy keeping them
running and in good shape. An essential part of any
expedition, they are in high demand and rarely
struggle to find work. Taking a job that isn’t
extremely likely to get them killed, however, is
another task in and of itself.
1st rank- Tinker-Tot: A mechanic begins her career with a natural predilection for tinkering. Throughout her life she has acquired the basic know-how necessary to repair and create simple machines.
2nd rank- She’ll Run: People have created a wide variety of vehicles in the wasteland, from dirt bikes to steam-powered sand-skiffs. With practice, the Mechanic knows how to operate and maintain them.
3rd rank- This Old Thing?: Additionally, there are plenty of derelict machines to work with. Old computers, a derelict firetruck, or even that old ferris wheel – all are now in the domain of the Mechanic’s expertise.
4th rank- “I Call It the…”: Not all mechanics are content to work on other people’s creations. The mechanic can now create her own large-scale projects, designing whatever she can dream up, provided there’s enough spare parts lying around.
5th rank- Tech Support: Few mechanics reach the level of skill and understanding required to work with computerized electronics, circuitry, and basic programming. With this knowledge, the Mechanic can now create and maintain advanced machinery and robotics.
