Before I go and create some, has anyone created commercial recreational drones?


For Dark Champions or any other genre?

My group has never bothered, as they're typically equipment bought with money.  Fragile equipment, at that...

Well, what are you trying to do with the drone? If you're just flying it around like a toy it's not anything. If you're using it for surveillance it's probably Clairsentience with Physical Manifestation or Focus and Time Limit. It shouldn't be a complicated build unless you want something really powerful.

We did discus this quite a bit in this thread...

You might want to consider a very small vehicle. Size 0.5 or so. As a base to make a drone.

Something else to consider is using the expanded Focus rules in one of the APGs. 


It allows you to give foci, Body, Int, etc as well as allowing them to operate independently of the user.

Interesting Vanguard, now I need to think about purchasing the 6th ed APGs.
